This past weekend’s Twin Cities Takedown race at ERX Motor Park was cut short due to weather on Sunday. Some people on the ground reported that there was a tornado, others say just high winds. We were hiding out in our hotel at the time, so we can’t confirm either report. Either way, the race was cut short.
Jeremy Meyer, director of business development of ERX, said “We battled the weather all weekend, but we had a successful day on Saturday… the racing was incredible, and the feedback from the fans has been extremely positive.”
Saturday was a great day of racing. Cam Reimers did a great job out on the track, placing 5th for the day. We got to meet tons of fans and the pit crew did a great job, as always, tuning the truck.
On Sunday, we woke up to rain and up to 80 mph winds, which left trees, hauler awnings, and bleachers in shambles. Outside of few bums and scrapes from scrambling around the track to grab equipment, no one was seriously hurt. Officials decided to postpone the race in the interest of fan and racer safety, and rescheduled for late September. It’s important to note that all of Sunday’s tickets will be honored for the reschedule date of Friday Sept. 22. Full details on this and refunds are available on the ERX Motor Park website.

Until the next race (schedule here), here’s a few images to recap Saturday’s events.
