Another day of "Weepers" cancels today's activities at the Inaugural Rockingham 500. With the exception of some mid-day sprinkles, it has been a dry day at Rockingham Speedway, yet all 26 Champ Cars spent another day parked in their respective garages. Despite intense efforts by Rockingham Speedway, the track continues to seep water, which was retained from this week's heavy showers, forcing CART to cancel today's activities on the Rockingham oval.

"It is a huge disappointment that we have not been able to run. CART has been doing a great job helping the Rockingham team get this problem sorted out, but unfortunately it is creating a huge impact on this weekends activities. We could really use the track time to make sure we have a good racecar, and it looks like we might not get that opportunity. If we could just get a couple of hours of sun; I think it would really speed up the process of drying the weepers, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for that. I am anxious to get out there, I have been around the track in a street car a bunch of times, and I did four slow laps yesterday in my racecar, I think this place will be a blast at speed."
