Rain, wind and hail didn't dampen the Showdown.

    Plenty of rain, hail and lightening, but most everyone rode it out and still had a good time after the clouds broke.

    Don't guess this helps much, but I don't have a pic of it without mud!

    It was great show despite the storms rain and hail that we got . The sun got hot as hell for a while then it got black and nasty really fast . The thunderstorm just popped up and just kept growing ! We got very heavy rain , just a little wind and hail ! Once the heavy rain stopped and was just light rain , a car starts up in the back and out comes Clark ready to Play in the MUD ! Yea he did ! He took laps around the track in the mud having a great time . He took a few people for a ride before he finally stopped .
    The original races were canceled due to the wet track but Larry said , go ahead and let them go one at a time out on the track for some fun !

    Thanks Larry and the rest of the gang for putting on another great show !

    Eat your heart out California guys..you don't know what your missin.' Add a douse of humidity like the jungles of Brazil & you'll get a clue. Still, it was a great event ...everyone was as happy as a clam. Check out "homemadehardtop"s thread for more pics.
