Rained out again…….AAARRRRGGGGG!

Thanks to those troopers who joined me to watch our cars get wet, dry, then wet, dry and wet again. JR-CRUZN-C5, AllWetC5 (no pun intended), Matt383, Tabasco, and a bunch of guys from the North Shore Corvette club came out hoping for a race today (About 20 Vettes).

Great Lakes Corvette Challenge race 3 and Chevy Day at Great Lakes was rained out as we all suspected. Those who came out all received rain checks. Tim and I will try to determine the feasibility of rescheduling this event at Union Grove later this year!

Good seeing everyone and don’t forget about Great Lakes Corvette Challenge Race 4 at Byron on July 13th!!!!!

Check out for further details!
