The 2016 NMCA Bluegrass Nationals was held at Beech Bend Raceway and since it was so close it was only logical that I drive that way and check it out.
Things did not look good on the way north though. Around the Kentucky border it started clouding up, and about 10 miles out of Bowling Green it started drizzling. I stopped and got some coffee and checked the radar and it didn’t look bad so I headed for the track. It was 54° with the wind blowing about 10 to 15 mph when I got there, and for mid May that feels quite chilly! But the rain quit, the clouds blew away, and the track dried out. They got things started about 45 minutes later than scheduled so all in all it worked out.
