Goodland Grand Prix 2013
When we arrived in Goodland, Indiana the skies were blue. It was warm and looked like the rain they predicted was off base. We got our stuff set up then the clouds rolled in and so did the rain. We were hoping that the rain would pass by the next day when our practice began. Unfortunately the rain was there to stay.
We had a few moments of dry spells so Ashlee got a little bit of practice in. We only had one set of rain tires which our nephew Kyle was using for the cadet kart. He was at least able to get out a few more times once in the dry and a practice and qualifying on the wet pavement. It looked like some storms were coming in so we had to call it quits for the day and eliminate the heat races.
That evening after the rain was over we had a great time hanging out with other families and visiting the local fair. Sunday morning when we woke up the rain seemed to be over but of course it showed up by the time Ashlee had to go out for her feature. It was sprinkling when they sent them out. I was really nervous because she had never driven in the rain and she was on her slicks. She spun out a few times and had to be restarted however she still pulled off the win and came back with the kart in one piece (which was a victory as well.)
