Trackside Now: Georgia Asphalt Series at Peachstate
Rain Doesn't Stop Racing at Peachstate
Saturday 1:15pm ET - The Georgia Asphalt Series makes the return to their home track today with the 100-lap event at Peachstate Speedway (GA).  The GAS cars are for the most part the only ones in the pit area thus far and practice is just now getting underway. 

There are close to 30 haulers in the pits and it is a beautiful sunny day.  But the temperature can be described in one word: HOT.  It's around 81 degrees with a high set for today around 87.  There is a slight chance for some isolated storms, but that's typical southern weather in late spring.  It should be a good night to get plenty of racing action in.

The cars are out on the track now for their practice which is scheduled to last from 1pm until 3.  Stay tuned for the latest updates and full practice results from the track.





Saturday 3:30pm ET - In the fourth and final practice 2006 Peachstate winner Bubba Pollard topped the charts for the Dawn 100 event with feature events scheduled to go off at 7:00pm.  Practice just ended, and just shortly after it was over a small thunderstorm worked its way over the track.  The track is now cold as we wait out the passing storm.

Bubba Pollard has won at Peachstate before, Is he fast enough to do it again?
Saturday 5:00pm ET - The rain seems to be moving off away from the racetrack and the sun is trying to shine again in turns one and two.  Track drying should be underway shortly.

Saturday 4:16pm ET - Unfortunately the storm hasn't went away as quickly as we had hoped for.  But everything is still on for this evenings event at Peachstate Speedway, as we continue to wait out the storm.

It's really just typical Southern Summer weather.  Afternoon showers and storms sometimes become a daily thing, and It's raining pretty hard here right now with the wind is blowing quite a bit. Luckily the competitors were able to take cover before the rain  and the storm got too bad.

Unfortunately, some tents were not quite as lucky as they fell victim to the storm. 

It's a good thing that racecars weigh a heck of a lot more than tents do.
The rain is still falling at Peachstate.
Saturday 7:10pm ET - Track drying is still on-going and the track officials have asked for a little more help out on the track, inviting teams to take their trucks out on the track in attempt to get it dry.  Officials have also announced that due to the rain the GAS cars will lineup by points, which will put Russell Fleeman and Taylor Satterfield on the pole for the Dawn 100 feature event.

Saturday 6:54pm ET - Track drying is continuing at Peachstate Speedway.   It is still sprinkling but track officials are hopeful that there will be racing tonight.

Saturday 5:50pm ET - Qualifying for the GAS cars was originally scheduled to go off at 6pm but track drying is still going on and there are reports of rain once again on the track.  Stay tuned for updates.

Saturday 5:00pm ET - Track drying is now underway at Peachstate Speedway for tonight's Georgia Asphalt Series Event.
Saturday 9:30pm ET - Steve Hill won the first feature event of the evening in the 25-lap feature for the mini stock division.

Saturday 9:00pm ET - A little (or a lot) of rain wasn't enough to stop the Georgia Asphalt Series and the Saturday night events scheduled to go off at Peachstate.

The features are now underway only two hours behind schedule which isn't bad at all considering the four hours of wet weather that saturated the track earlier this afternoon.

Saturday 8:10pm ET - After about four hours of track drying, the racecars are back on the track for a mini track session.  The mini stocks are out on the track now, putting some added heat into the track.  After a few practice sessions to make up for the ones that were washed out for the local divisions, we will go green for the feature events tonight.
Saturday night at Darlington may have been a wash out but we are racing at Peachstate.
Saturday 12:05am ET - CHECKERED FLAG- Bubba Pollard passed Fleeman with 8 laps to go and has won the Dawn Commuications 100.
