Yeah, don't let the rain bother you...

but what about the cold??? You guys could be in for a chilly one at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on the 5th...

Another Arctic Blast on the Way... The coldest air since January 2005 will make it into the northeastern US tonight, pushing wind chills below zero for some of the New England residents. A large high pressure will build over Alaska, amplifying the jet stream to the coldest regions on the planet -- Siberia and the North Pole -- then plunging that frigid air south towards Texas. This could be the coldest air we've experienced in the Lone Star State for years, arriving around the 1st of February. Thanks to what could be a series of arctic cold fronts, we may see temps in the teens and twenties the first week of February with a prolonged period below 32 degrees. Although no precip appears in preliminary forecast data, we need to prepare for the potential for more ice across Texas.

It's all about the layers guys. Add as many as you can fit - start with thermals against the skin (silk are best) and go from there. Let the outermost layer be rain gear or something that is waterproof/windproof. Put plastic garbage bags between two layers of socks to keep the tootsies warm, and a pair of latex gloves over thin glove liners (Academy $10 or less) and under your riding gloves.

Go to the sports shop and pick up some of the chemical warmers that skiiers use - DO NOT put them directly against skin though! A friend told me he tried to keep the jewels warm and almost burned himself pretty bad.

Neck gaitor/balaclava to keep the gap between the helmet and suit covered too - cut the sleeve off an old sweatshirt if you have to.

There's cold and there's frigid... sounds like this has the possiblity to be frigid.

I grew up in northern NY and trust me, if this happens... this cold WILL bother you.
