If It Wasn't Tied Down, It's Gone



GRAND BEND, Ont. -

Wind & Rain Rearrange Mopar Display
A monsoon-like squall line ripped through the Grand Bend Motorplex Thursday afternoon, giving racers arriving for the Sixth annual Mopar Parts Canadian Nationals a rude welcome.


Moser Engineering Awning
Torrential rains and strong straight-line winds roared through the pits around 4 p,m., upending tents and wrapping awnings back over the tops of trailers.








The rain stopped after about 45 minutes, presenting race crews with yet another set of challenges beyond those they face most race weekends.





Quain Stott's Awning
There were no injuries reported and the damage appeared to be limited to things that presented large sail areas to the wind, mainly awnings and pop-up canopies.



Pop-Up Canopy For Sale, Cheap!
Racing is still scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Friday, but the weather forecasts for the weekend hint that more of the same kind of weather could return any of the three days of the event.
