  1. Man, that really sucks for all the people that have busted their ass getting ready. But my wishes of luck and safety go to the residents and firefighters of California. Good luck, guys!

  4. That is a bumber that the race is canceled, but it is definately the best thing considering all the fires in the area. However, it will be interesting how they do 2009 registration process and if they are going to credit any of the $$ from this year to next. Here is what their website had to say....
    In the coming days, we will announce details regarding entries for next year's race, which will be determined in a fair and equitable manner. It should be noted that per our race rules, all race entries are non-refundable.

  5. That's is a huge question - 2009 lottery entry. Will they just let in the 2008 lottery winners ? We will see....

  6. 2008 entrants will have auto entry. So the remaining issues include whether WS expands next years field (they can) and how many of the 2008 entrants apply again in 2009.
