With the words “Go away rain” Rodger Brogdon and the RoofTec team hit the road for this weekends LODRS event at Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds, GA. After suffering a complete washout at the initial weekend of the Torco Fuels Nationals in Virginia two weeks ago, the team headed home for the final LODRS in Division 4 in Noble, OK last weekend. After two great days of qualifying in perfect weather conditions, Sunday was a complete washout, and the race was forced to be rescheduled for completion on Friday, October 27th.
“You would think we’re the cause for the rain” said Brogdon, “It seems like everywhere we go of late Mother Nature just doesn’t want us to finish a race.” “We’ve got to go to Georgia now. We need to win a race on the division level to help us close out this 2006 season.” “With just the few remaining races left, we need to get some rounds in. The car’s ready, the RoofTec team is ready, we just need some sunshine on race day!”
With the opportunity to score divisional round wins now being limited to the LODRS events in Georgia, the make-up in Oklahoma, and the final LODRS event of the year in Las Vegas, the team is going to need Mother Nature to take a break. Now with three races in three weekends and going from the east coast to the west coast, Pete, Scott, Brian and the rest of the team are going to be logging miles behind the wheel of the transporter while Brogdon logs the laps down the quarter mile.
Qualifying for this weekend’s event in Reynolds, GA gets underway this Friday, with the field being set after qualifying ends on Saturday. With many of the east coast competitors also looking to gain their final points of the season, look for the field to be very stout, and eliminations to force Rodger Brogdon to have to use all the Brogdon Racing Engines horsepower that the team can give him.
The weather forecast for this weekend does hold promise, at least for Friday & Saturday. Sunday however shows a chance of precipitation, again. As the old expression goes “Rain, Rain, go away, come again,,,,,,,,,after the seasons over!
