Just tell her you're taking here to Chicago for Vday. Come up Thursday night, stay downtown at a plush Chicago destination...a little wining and dining...give her a few hundo for shopping on Saturday while you're racing and hit the road home Saturday night. Easy-peasy. Feel free to come to me any time for relationship advice Myron, I'm here for you buddy.

This will be a great race. I think we have avoided all the other races going on during this time of the season.

Roar memberships will be $35 for the full membership.
If you want just a race day membership they are $20.

Please bring your card with you. Without your card or proof you have a valid membership you will not be allowed to race. I will have a current list at the race.

Need to see if that can be fixed!
Says " Hobby shop---NO"

There is most assuredly a hobby shop!


Can't wait for this one.

Yes, there is a hobby shop on site. In fact it is a really nice shop.

I have heard from a number of people making the race. All classes look to be competitive.

Pro One will be at the track this weekend to practice.
