Friday morning Testing/Qualifying starts Friday morning at 8:30 am.

Weather today was partly sunny, then overcast, and then a little drizzle late in the day but water conditions were great. Overheard several diff. team crew members saying the conditions today were great, wished they could have run today. Forecast is for more of the same Friday and getter warmer and sunny by race day Sat. & Sunday

Another note, I did see the "top secret" Jet A/Coconut Oil Biofuel blend delivered today from Imperium Renewables to the U-1 team, same stuff I saw at the U-787 & Elam test session a few weeks ago.Also, about 9-10+ of the Unlimited Lights were in the pits too. A few more expected tomorrow.

Let's Go racin'... Lon Erickson - Thanks for the update Lon!
