Real Question...What are the chances this race gets canceled?

At this point I am still preparing and planning to race, but today I got notice from my kids school that if anyone travels to California they expect/require a 14 day quarantine. Well...what do you do now? It's spring break and this is what the family was going to do. As of now our plan is to take it day by day and see what happens, after all a lot can change between now and then.

I don't think the school has that kind of juice. Is the school gonna have guards watching the borders to see who goes to Cali?

No...and I don't necessarily agree with it, but I'm not going to be the guy that doesn't comply with their rules and think my desires and vacation is more important than the community at large. If we decide to take him, then he will stay home for two additional weeks after spring break. Besides, in this day and age I am sure others will know or find out he was in CA. Imagine the backlash if he just happened to end up being a carrier and I put him back in school.

The carriers are already out there, they have been since December at least. Many folks have already have this and wrote it off as a cold or the flu. Until the strain was identified, and the hype started, this was just the winter virus that goes around every year. Not exactly sure why it is getting so hyped now.

Race is not getting cancelled. We have multiple plans in place to prevent any large crowd gatherings to stay in accordance with current San Bernardino County measures.

24 Pre-Entered...this is gonna be a very challenging race course...as the early pre-runners have already found out. Make sure you spend some time tuning your shocks! 8 Laps through the "mile of danger" won't be fun if you don't.

The Weddle Industries Sweet 16 / TJ Craig Memorial Shootout did not disappoint!

The two mile qualifying course was technical to say the least. After one parade lap the driver's were begging for another sight lap and their request was granted.

After the dust settled two high compression motors bested the low comps with Timothy Craig and Kaleb Marschall qualifying 1,2 only separated by .37 seconds.

Roughly an hour after qualifying was over, seventeen 1600's took the green flag all with hopes of becoming the Weddle Industries Sweet 16 Champion.

After lap 1, Bryce Farrar was physically out front setting fast lap of the race. Unfortunately, fuel pump issues would end his run soon after.

Lap 2 had Justin Cockrell out front followed by Michael Bud Ward and Kaleb Marschall.

Lap 3 Cockrell would continue to lead now trailed by Kaleb Marschall and Robby Macdonald.

Lap 4 and 5 kept Justin Cockrell / Timothy Craig out front still trailed by Kaleb Marschall and now Mike Michael Harvey / Bryan Johnson had battled back up to 3rd.

Lap 6 would see 2nd and 3rd swap positions while Reece Pettersen and Tom Craig were making a late race charge.

At the finish line taking the checkers would be a new physical leader, Michael Harvey / Bryan Johnson with Justin Cockrell / Timothy Craig only 12 seconds physically behind. Harvey/Johnson started the day 45 seconds ahead so on corrected time they would take 2nd place, making Justin Cockrell / Timothy Craig the Weddle Industries Sweet 16 Shootout Champs. Reece Pettersen would receive the checkers minutes later followed by Terry Jeffers / Tom Craig who started the day dead last. On corrected time Jeffers / Craig would take the 3rd spot on the Weddle Industries Sweet 16 Shootout podium.

With 17 participants, the Weddle Industries Sweet 16 Shootout paid out $13,200!!

Top Qualifier:....Tim Craig...........$1000. (HC)
Fast Lap:.......... Bryce Farrar.......$1000 (LC)
1st Place:.........Cockrell/Craig.....$6500 (LC)
2nd Place:.......Harvey/Johnson..$2900 (LC)
3rd Place:........Jeffers/Craig.......$1800 (HC)

I guess the new high compression restrictor plate rules helped as the top qualifier and 3rd place finisher was powered by a high compression motor (HC).

Stay tuned for the Champions artwork from Off Road Racing Designs and the Sweet 16 Shootout video from 239 FILMS!!!

$6500 in winnings and 2 one-of-a-kind trophies wasn't enough for the Weddle Industries, TJ Craig Memorial, Sweet 16 Shootout champs, so we had Off Road Racing Designs draw them up a little something.....
