You can’t always trust the weatherman

It’s Friday morning at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, and the weather is rather nice, considering the awful forecasts for the weekend. It’s partly cloudy, the sun is poking through the clouds to the south and it’s chilly, temps in the low 40s. There are gray clouds to the west, and that’s where the next round of storms may be coming from but not for a couple hours at least. A futurecast shows Middletown escaping two small rain cells to the north and the south around 2 p.m., so the Speedway may be spared for opening day.
There is already a bustle of activity in the pits area with hot laps practice scheduled to go off around noon. If they hustle, perhaps they can get most of the time trials and heats in before any more rain arrives.
Will keep you posted …
