Thanks for joining us here on Speed51.com…have a great night! 
We will be back at Lanier in just a few short weeks for SPEEDFEST 2012, featuring the ARCA/CRA Super Series and the JEGS CRA All-Stars Tour.  That event will take place January 27th through 29th. 
That concludes today’s coverage at Lanier.  We’re sorry we couldn’t bring you more action, but we can’t help Mother Nature.

Donnie Clack, track promoter, also announced that the event, when it is rescheduled, will likely be on a Saturday afternoon.
We just spoke with track staff. Today’s race is officially postponed. It will be rescheduled for a date to be announced after Speedweeks in February. Lanier officials will announce the rescheduled date via press release sometime soon.
Until we know for sure, we’re assuming the cars into trailers is just to get them out of the rain, but we’ll find out the real scoop. 
We are noticing some teams loading their cars into trailers. We’re going to find some track staff to see what that means. 
Yes, Etheridge didn’t take time in qualifying yesterday and hasn’t shown up here at Lanier today. 
Comment From Guest 

Did the 46 pack it up and leave? 

I wouldn’t call it “raining” but more of a steady sprinkling. 
Comment From Bob 

Is it currently raining there? 

Now we have received word that the ambulance is not here yet and without the ambulance, no cars can be on the track so the track drying efforts have now ceased. 
There has been no rain date announced as of yet but we assume it would be in one of the next coming weekends before Speedfest at the end of the month. 
Comment From Bob 

Any rain date? 

The pace truck is now on track starting the track drying efforts. 
We are now hearing that track officials are in talks about moving the Pro Late Model main event to the first race. 
Comment From rob 

don’t understand why the race order can’t be changed. i’m sure a lot of folks have driven a long distance to see the 100-lapper and would be unable to come back if that part of the program is rained out. 

Looking at the weather map it isn’t looking great right now, but the rain has lifted a bit here and the track and we’re hopeful it will hold off.

Track promoter Donnie Clack pointed out his pleasure with the turnout for what is the final event that he is promoting here. SpeedFest 2012 later this month is promoted by the CRA folks and after that event, the track will shut down until it is sold or new management comes in to run the facility. 
We had a great race with six Pro’s and three Masters yesterday and we’re expecting a similar field today. 
Comment From nick 

how many pro-masters? 

Several Pro Late Model crew members, some rather frustrated, asked if the PLM feature could be moved up in the feature order. The simple answer given was, “No.”

The first point made in the drivers meeting was that the track will do everything in their power to get the event in today.

The chapel service and driver’s meeting are now underway at the start-finish line. 
The umbrellas are beginning to go up in the stands as a slight rain has started to fall.  However, the drivers are still being called to victory lane for the driver’s meeting.

There are several competitive Pro Late Models here that could give Pollard a run for his money.  Mike Garvey, Dwayne Buggay and Russell Fleeman just to name a few.

Is there anyone there that could beat Bubba?

There’s a strong fog around the speedway but it seems to be lifting a bit, hopefully long enough to get in all of today’s events. 
Comment From Ben N 

Kind of wet, south of Atlanta. How does it look at the track? 

Bubba Pollard sat on the pole in yesterday’s qualifying session and then rolled a four for the invert, which puts Dwayne Buggay starting from the top spot.
