There was a bar. It just wasn't very effective, as you can see.

HaHa, we were trying this at a couple club races. Got the idea form a pair of the faster locals.

Problem is if you time it wrong your throwing a car out infront of a speeding racer on the straight. Crunch.

The scheduled date has already passed. I believe they cancelled the race due to the economy and lack of manufacturer support. It is supposed to be back next year.

2010 Manufacturers Cup ???
