It's ten 'till ten here at Beech Bend, and we've got bracket cars going down the track, with second round of quals up next at 11. Speaking of qualifying, it looks like the legendary Swill racers will have Scott Lovell's ride back together and ready to go in time to make two hits today and get into the show. With some help in the form of a few new parts from UPR, a little bit of welding on the radiator tank courtesy of John Urist, and a golf cart and a tow strap to yank the core support back into shape, they're at the point where they're ready to fill it back up with water and check to make sure it's good to go. The only thing they're still looking for is some matching blue duct tape for the bumper, but we're told they'll settle for gray if it's all they can find.

Let's check out the exclusive Race Pages WeatherHand for an update on conditions here at the track:
