No Go At The Glen (Yet)
The Thursday practice sessions at Watkins Glen were both cancelled – following an injunction granted to Krohn Racing and Colin Braun by New York State Supreme Court Judge Judith O’Shea.

There is apparently a contract between the Indy Racing League and Watkins Glen International, which prohibits competitors under 18 from participating in any on-track activities at the same racing facility on the same weekend that the IRL is also competing.

The defendants have filed an appeal, which will be heard this morning (Friday). A decision is expected by midday on Friday.

“It is important to point out that Krohn Racing and Colin Braun are well within their rights to take this action,” said Grand American President Roger Edmondson. “It is also unfortunate that the rest of our Daytona Prototype teams must wait until Friday for a decision on the status of their event. However, we must respect both the decision of the court as well as our race promoter, and are prepared to alter our plans if necessary.”

There is an alternative plan being put together, if Saturday’s race cannot be held.
