Default 100th APBA Gold Cup cancelled

Looks like they just cancelled the finals of the 100th running of the APBA Gold Cup in Detroit due to weather and course conditions ...

We were there ,, bad show all the way around ,, The parking was bad ,, the shuttle service was bad ,,, the food was fair quality , Bad,, the racing was bad,, the OSS presentation was very, very bad,,, they ran around the course at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and the announcer was giving a race play by play ,, bad,,, and then it rained ,,, bad,,:

The military Jet fly by show was good as always !!!!

yep, we just left there. we had a great time running the offshores at the event. What a great crowd! They were able to get some heats off this morning and yesterday in the Unlimiteds and all i can say is WOW them things can turn. the turn at the Roostertail was unreal. Its crazy tight in the supercat i cant imagine carrying three times the speed through there. Thanks to all for a great event.

OSS had NOTHING to do with the Offshore Boat demonstration at the Gold Cup. This was an Offshore Pro Series / SUPERCAT RACING event.

Ryan,

Actualy it was an OPA sanctioned event as far as the offshores were concerned.

Hope Stan and Al Jr can get things worked out for some of us to head to Nawlins. I will do my best to make it.
