With Ray Murray spinning the tunes, free (not your average race-type) giveaways, all the fun classes in attendance, retired talent not seen since the Parma Alfa dynasty, and Casey wearing ugly Christmas sweaters all weekend...THIS EVENT IS GOING TO ROCK!!!!

I'm looking forward to calling this race and being part of all the FUN that's surely gonna go down! Who wants to bet against Kregger running less than 4 classes?

Hey guys lets get a Pro10 class for this race!!! come on Pro10 guys!!! I think 13.5 Pro10 might be a bit much for this track so maybe 17.5??? let me know what you think??? I have 3 pro 10's and will be "sponsoring" 2 other drivers to race my rides!!! so we reallly only need 2 more entries to make a class, so lets get it on!!!
