Albany-Saratoga opener now just postponed

"The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry."

Albany-Saratoga Speedway race director Bruce Richard did everything in his power to bring an early start to the 2009 racing season.

He looked to the skies above, he looked down to the dirt racing surface he worked into shape last week and he looked deeply into the future through the screen on his computer at the long range weather forcast.

The only thing he couldn't look into was a crystal ball.

The early, pre-season, 50-lap, bigger than life purse, big block/small block race scheduled for Saturday, postponed to Sunday has now been just postponed.

The weather didn't cooperate with rain falling on the track surface followed by the lower temperatures and high winds made it a bad weekend to sit on aluminum bleachers two weeks before the season was set to begin.

The event could be run as a mid-week event (but I doubt this week, again because of the weather) and plans are being set up for practice next weekend.
