Due to a major storm threatening the SP area on Sun with low 40 degree temps, strong
winds, and heavy rain (maybe even some snow mix) officials called a special Sat morning
driver meeting to propose switching the event to a single day format. An overwhelming
majority of drivers approved the change with one 20 min qual session and 30 min timed
races.

Qualifying - dry track, cool temps -
Siebenaler
Womer
Glenn Tupper
Grimes
Shields
Kittell
Carmody

There was light rain of varying intensity for 2 hrs before the vee race. About the 5 min
signal the rain stopped. Carmody was on slicks. Phillips and Tupper on intermediates.
Everyone else on rains, apparently guessing that the storm with real rain would shortly
arrive.
Carmody took the lead on the 1st lap and simply drove away. Womer, Siebenaler, and
Grimes slowly fell back. Tupper spun on lap 1 falling to the back of the field. Rader had
clutch failure and completed only 2 laps.
Womer pulled in after 6 laps with engine problems. Phillips retired after 11 laps with some
mechanical problem. Late in the race Grimes fell back from Sibenaler. Shields and Kittell
battled for most of the race Saltenberger and Weisheit battled for the entire race. Tupper
had a good drive moving back up thru the field to 4th place. There were some brief periods
of sprinkles, but not enough to slow Carmody. The real rain all the others had bet on came
about 45 mins after the race had finished.

Ed`s Motor problem was a piece of duct tape in the carb!

The hoosier rain tires held up well on the mostly dry track
