Weather is looking much better for the TNT now. Get everything setup and moving early to beat the rain in the afternoon. Sunday looking pretty great now, too.

What do you mean? Three different sources show good Conditions for both days with rain Saturday afternoon and night.

I’m watching the weather as well and may come to the T&T, though I am 5 hours away now...this is actually one of my favorite Autox events of the year!

Ditto. It's a tad over 4 hours for me now and if the weather is bad that would suck.

I was more talking Sunday. The weather.com forecast was showing 98% chance of rain basically all day.

Per this morning, looks like it starting to clear out thru the day. :)

Hi guys, Just wanted to let you all know I am very excited as this is my first autocross event, and if time permits I would love to attend the event on Sunday as well. I did have one question though, I usually work on weekends at night, so what time would the we be released from the events on average? I'm sure I could work something out with my boss if I knew ahead of time!

Since Saturday is a test and tune, you can leave whenever you need to that day. Just get your work assignment out of the way early.

Here is some video from inside my car from the Test N Tune. The way you all looked at the car everytime I put it in gear was worth all the work :)
