Default tuesdays

i probably wont be out for much weeknight fun anymore,
getting darker sooner, it's an extra 15-20 min drive from here, which leaves about an hour and 15 mins to setup and run.
wish i got off work earlyer,
will see you guys one the 26th!!

Isaac

We have some tables now, more on the way. Electric is on site. For our first big race on the 26th of this month we will have some EZ ups, tables and electric all setup and ready to go for the guys that need. I'm also getting a food truck to come in for the day so we have on site eats.

I have plans to build a pit area in the spring which will include a roof over the driver's stand. I also am going to solve the problem of "running out of daylight" by putting lights up. I have the lights already, just need to get the poles in the ground. I don't know if I can pull it off anymore this fall but I promise by the time the weather breaks in the spring the short days won't be a problem.

Thanks to everyone for coming out, and thanks to Rob for the setup help!

Kevin,

One other thing you might want to think about. A raised pit lane for refueling.

Rob and I made it last night with a few others that I can't remember everyone's names. Mitch and Matt I believe were their names. Track is really nice. New section added on the left side of track had some nice moist dirt and hooked up really well. The back corner of it caused a blind spot coming up into the back stretch that they are going to re-work.

Jason,

Raised pit road is coming, I figured that in, along the front stretch directly infront of the driver's stand. We will have a 5ft walk way and a 3ft wooden drive on, drive off pit road. I don't know if it will be done in time for the 26th or not, it kinda got put on the back burner for some of the other track stuff.

Isaac,

Tuesday went well, more new faces and a few regulars. I know the daylight is becoming a concern, I hope to solve that issue in the future. The new section isn't exactly picture worthy just yet, I stuggled with time on Tuesday and didn't get it to turn out nearly like I wanted. I promise by next Tuesday we will have it headed in the right direction. I plan to work on the track on Sunday afternoon and evening, if anyone wants to come over and run the old section while I'm working on the new part just hit me up at [email protected] and I'll give you some details, it would just be open practice.

Mini series,

We are very excited to be a part of this new series! Matt has put together some really good ideas on points and payout for the series that I think everyone will like. If anyone has any questions about the series you can hit us up on here or contact me at [email protected]. Hope to see you here!

The girlfriend wont be making it the 26th, but my wife should be there to run! hahahaha.
