(05-13-2013) Mechanicsville, MD – Spring 2013 has been extremely unpredictable in the Northeast to say the least, and the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association [NEOPMA], like many other Associations and Series, had one of their events cancelled due to weather.
Our second point's event of the season, "The Mountain Motor Nationals" scheduled for May 10th-11th had forecasts change half a dozen times leading up to the event. From forecasts of 30% to 70% rain, MIR tried their best to get the event in. Unfortunately after getting in the 1st round of qualifying Friday night, the rest of the evening into early morning the rain, thunder and lightning reared its ugly head, and with a forecast of 70% chance of rain Saturday prompted MIR to cancel the rest of the event.
NEOPMA would like to extend a huge thank you to Royce Miller of MIR for attempting to get the event in and completed.
As with any other outdoor motorsport event, weather dictates attendance and car counts. Today's economy and weather has created hesitance. Before teams move, weather checks will dictate when and if they start down the road to an event. Weather, economy and high fuel prices spares nobody, from the Race Teams to the Tracks, to the Supporters. The one positive is the loyalty of many of the teams and tracks, as many teams show up even in inclement weather forecasts. We look forward to a great rest of the year with awesome events, more Pro Mods, and improved weather.
Next up for the NEOPMA is "Pro Mod Wars" June 1st at the "New Capitol Raceway" in Crofton Maryland. This event will feature Pro Mods of many makes and models vying for the top prize and points lead. NEOPMA will also feature the Extreme Imports of the NDIMA. Also on hand will be Outlaw 10.5, Bracket Series and Jr. Dragsters. Visit http://capitolraceway.net/ for more info.
The NEOPMA would like to thank all the sponsors below, Pro Mod Teams and Crews, Tracks and Fans who support the ¼ Mile Pro Mod series
