2019 SAN DIEGO SUPERCROSS | RAINY DAY SCHEDULE IN EFFECT WITH WEATHER CONDITIONS
It seems as the rain gods have been following the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross series. Downtown San Diego is not known as a place where it rains a lot. Locals here don’t know what to do when the rain starts to fall. We knew going into the fifth round of the series in San Diego that is was going to rain, we just didn’t know how much. Yesterday was a beautiful day, but Feld knew the rain was coming. They issued out a normal rainy day race schedule on Friday. A rainy day schedule usually cuts out free practice and shortens the qualifying sessions by two minutes. For tonight Feld has decided to cancel both free practice and the first session of qualifying in hopes to keep the track in good condition. That means that the riders only get one qualifying session to make it into the night show.
As of 12:35 pm WST the weather report calls for an 85 to 100 percent chance of rain from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. After that the rain looks like it will let up a bit. Which is why they are waiting to the absolute last minute to pull off the plastic tarps on the track.
