    Had a meeting with the H.A.M.B. Drags Science Consultant Group today... That's what I am calling him anyway... And, as it stands, we need the situation to improve before we can have the event. That being said, I am still hopeful.

    The hard thing about all of this is that no one can really tell you for sure what is going to happen using numbers, charts, and historical data. Instead, we can only extrapolate what is happening in the now into the future. And given what is happening now is a fairly significant uptick, things look a little bleak.

    However, August is still a good ways a way and there is still plenty of time for shit to get straight. So, keep your fingers crossed with me.

    Editor's Note: I will do my best to keep this thread updated after talks with my epidemiologist buddy. I want to keep this thing as transparent as possible.

    I don’t know if this will be useful to you or not, but we have been traveling from Illinois (which was pretty much shut down until the last 2 weeks) to Missouri to race our dirt cars since the beginning of June. The racetrack is packed, they have signs posted and people do their best but there are a lot of spectators there. People are really wanting to get out and do stuff, so far I have seen no, nor heard of any issues so far. This is in the Southeastern part of Missouri though. The MOKAN area may be totally different.

    Yeah, that's actually one of the things that really scares me. I don't want to be responsible for holding an event that brings Covid from all over the country to one spot simply for economic gain. I've heard people say things like, "don't cancel and let people make their own decisions." But the thing is, I want to be able to make MY own decision without pressure from any one side.

    And I'm gonna make my decision with the science that is available. Not only for the safety of others, but selfishly... for my own safety.

    I know people are dying to get out there and do things. I am too... But all of the science points to discipline and patience.

    Obviously, it doesn't look too good right now. In fact, it looks really bad... But there's still a little time before I have to call it.
