ith the Super Bowl held Sunday afternoon, as well as a wild “foam party” rescheduled for Saturday evening, most racers said the date change would allow for a more relaxed lead-in to their off-season.
“It’s not a big deal,” said Jeremy Powers, the 2012 U.S. national champion. “I’m confident the organization and people who have monitored this know the situation, and based on everything, they know what had to be done.
“Louisville is great, the city has been incredible. The public works staff has set up a sand barricade to help keep this thing at bay through Saturday. You can control a lot of things, but Mother Nature isn’t one of them.
“And looking at the bright side, this will give everyone an extra day of recovery from the debauchery on Saturday before they have to head back to work on Monday.”
