we are a victim of our own success sorta...

we have to have nitro done by 10PM now because we were going too late and kept getting the cops called

there is a rule now if we have over 100 entries we only get 4 min quals, to save time

Its crazy how Tuesdays get so full. If I remember correctly HRH had 14 heats last Tuesday vs 7 heats on Saturday. Double the turnout.

Maybe all the racers have wives like mine that race at that track.

If I don't race on Tuesday and choose to go Saturday I'm in the dog house and get none for a while because Saturday is one day all are off work and together as a family.

So Tuesday it is, but still wish I lived in CA to race with a crowd like that.

Our Tuesday's sometimes have had to run Truggy and Buggy together, and boy o boy what fun that can be.
