I am sure that some people may be turned away because it costs an extra $10 that day, but I am hoping much more will welcome the competition and gladly pay the extra money.
yeah, i guess we'll see! i know it won't stop me from racing when i can. but it might for some and i want to see as many people as i can out there.

Default Snowman Series

All i can say is lets put the prices on the flyer and try to get everyone out for the series. But i would be prepared for people that normally race at ARC and people that dont't to be asking why the price increase? And to compare it to JBRL jimmy gives a percentage back to the top ten for the series. We all know there are going to be some great prizes, but those are donated as far as i heard. I would think the twenty dollar normal race fee would draw more of a crowd then the increased thirty. I think once they see and race on the track that would keep them willing to make the drive down from ? in the future . lets hope for big crowds ..

Speaking for myself, I have a hard time as it is making it up there from east San Diego, with the gas/food/race fee. Hobby is expensive and getting harder to afford, which is why a $30 race is out of the question for me. Heck, $20 would be a challenge right now.

I would love to be there though... Track looks fantastic and I miss running with you guys. My driving skills have gone way down hill since I have been away form ARC though.

Default Possible Rain this weekend

It looks like there will be more rain on the way for this weekend. Could someone in charge please post whether or not at the lastest Friday evening, if racing will be canceled?

Anthony - I still have your spare Mp9 front arms. Thanks again.
