Mother Nature lost the bet on Sunday, April 30, 2023 when the weather forecast was for rain showers and the Lebanon Valley weather vortex held the worst weather away, permitting the entire first points race to come to completion and the first winners of the 2023 points season to be crowned. Although there were two small delays as the track took on some showers, the crew diligently dried the surface to continue the racing both times. Congratulations to all that endured the day to take home special 60th Anniversary Wally trophies.
