So I guess we still are going to have races despite the Runoffs being on the east coast. I think entries peaked in the 160's before it was apparent that it was going to rain Sat and Sunday and entries dropped to about 120.
Fontana is a roval but the infield has terrible drainage - see my in-car from a practice awhile back in my miata https://youtu.be/7vEd1sGmIbU?t=462 A few spots of inches deep water.

Philip Royle dominated the wet track from the first lap of qualifying. He led both races from green to checker over Tony Jimerson and Brandon Droese. Taz Harvey in the ex-Prather Miata was the only GTL car and was mixing it up with the EP/Rx7 cars. Steve Hussey was back in his Lotus as the only FP car. Had issues with a fogged up visor on Sat on lap one, despite using Fog-x and having it slightly open. Slightly better on Sunday with some other attempts to fix, but still not great. Cory Marcos in his CRX was the only HP car.

There are a few spots that really get flooded after long periods of rain. I took these photos during Saturday's race.

two of Taz and one of Jimerson. In the first picture of Taz you can see the wake that Philip left behind.

I know of one GT3 car that had it's splitter ripped off as it was submerged.

Production winners from Sunday's race. Still a wet track, but not nearly as bad as Brian's pictures from Saturday.
