     The Memphis Street Rods began saying prayers in early September when the 10-day forecast predicted rain for September 18th, 19th and 20th.  Those were the dates that their 10th annual Delta River Run was scheduled to take place at Sam’s Town Casino in Tunica, Mississippi.
    Car enthusiasts started rolling into the car show, which is 1979 and older, on Wednesday and Thursday.  Normally by noon on Friday, the parking lot is almost full.  But this year, people traveling in from almost any direction up to 300 miles away from Tunica, woke up to torrential downpours and had to make a decision whether not to chance it and come on.  Most decided to take a chance and hope for a good weekend after all.  Trailers started rolling in, cars were driving in and you couldn’t even tell that is was steadily raining.
    People started setting up their tents, firing up their grills and relaxing and having fun.  By 2:00 on Friday the rain had pretty much stopped.  Within 10 miles of the car show, the rain was still falling but the prayers had been answered because there was no rain falling at Sam’s Town.  The rain held off the remainder of Friday.  The kick-off party was a blast on Friday night with Kenny Kidd’s piano show and the Memphis Street Rods handing out some money to lucky participants.  Even though the weather radar showed an 80% chance of rain on Saturday, only a handful of raindrops fell.
    All enjoyed the car show games and maybe even some casino games were popular as well!  Sunday morning it looked like the rain was coming, however it held off until the money and prizes were given out and if you loaded up early, you didn’t ever get wet on Sunday.  Some small showers fell while everyone was loading up leaving out.  All in all, it was a great weekend.  There were seven hundred and ninety entries and everyone is already looking forward to this year, which has been scheduled for September 17th, 18th and 19th, 2010.
