The Sunday race the rain played a big factor. We had Rain for qualifying and only ran 3 laps, due to some issues with multiple cars going off track and a few folks missing the Black flag the session was short.

Then they sky cleared and the sun came out. From what I saw, most of the grid went back to slicks and as we sat on the grid the sky opened up and pored. I cannot believe that in such a short period of time there was so much water running across the track between Turn 5 (end of back straight) and Madness. Then at the bottom of Madness it was a lake. I did two yellow laps and could hardly hold my line, and came in to watch.

Anyone have a report of what it was like at the start?

Congratulations Frank :)
I was there for the weekend testing for Nationals and chose not to race Sunday due to my tight schedule in getting back to the airport. Watched the fist lap after a long delay on the start. No problems i could see from the stands other than it was still raining pretty good.
