Click on the link below
My last time to Maui was for last years Season Finals in November that ended up
as a rain out and cancelled. The 2004 March event started out great on Friday
night but at about 11 pm was stopped because of persistent light rain. Racing
resumed the following day early Saturday afternoon to finish up Friday nights
eliminations, test and tune and the Jr. Dragsters made some passes also. Just
when Saturdays program began to get going at around 6pm the rain came in and
although the track did dry briefly it appeared it was not gonna let up the rest
of the night. So the call was made to cancel Saturday nights event. This album
has 277 photos in 3 different pages from Friday night and Saturday afternoon.
