We could go 600 plus if we had the room and wanted to race 24 hours around the clock which it will be close. I think I will just sleep at the shop that weekend.
it's gonna be tough that's for sure!! it's good for Bumps, i'm happy he got another big event..

i like the Classic in December...

We also have an big open wheel race in November that is expected to get 100 to 150 racers as well. We pretty much have no rest in between big races this year. Oval is expected to see over 100 racers on just normal shows this year.

Offroad it is still wait and see by the response has been excellent this year. Like always the SPEC SCT class will be huge this year. Mod truck will have a huge resurgence and I could see this being the 2nd biggest class each week be hing the SCT classes. Not bad from a class that was kinda dead last year.

Ok update the shop. The new upstairs pits are almost all painted. 3 more pit benches to get painted black and a few more need final wiring but it is coming along nicely. Floor painting for upstairs might happen late this week but if not next week for sure.

Jackie has been a painting machine!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chris has been a building machine and slowly but surely I have been moving and organizing all the parts in the shop. We have about 9 days left til opening day with about 15 days of work left.

We look forward to your comments on the basically all new Bumps and Jumps. Hope all you racers like the fresh paint, new pits, and even more parts in the shop than every before.

Brian

Yeah I moved ALOT of parts thats for sure. I think tonight I will bust rear and get the body room all setup. Shouldn't take me too long and would show a huge improvment in a shorter amount of time.

That room is bad right now so it would stun guys to have it neatly organized. If I get out of work early I might get it done before everyone shows up tonight to race but it is big if. Not sure what time I can cut of work.

I understand about the touring thing. Too bad those tracks have so much BS that its just not that fun to race at them anymore.

Bumps is alot less hassle free and attendance dwarfs the other tracks. Are oval race is so huge you can take the attendace of the local onroad tracks within a 2 hour radius of Harrisburg and they can't draw a 1/4 of what we do on just are weekly shows let along the CW race at 550 In 20 minutes)!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vegas race didn't come close to this in attendance.

The show of attendance shows where the racers want to be and thats not onroad in this area. Its dirt.......not carpet. Carpet is for my dog to sleep on or for the pit benches. Dirt is where its at. Pretty much every dirt oval or dirt offroad tracks are enjoying growth while the onroad tracks show little to no improvment in attendance.

I think it might be a little hit or miss than compared to last year. Plenty of guys have them though and will run them but not if it will be every week.

Karl great run at the Nats. Heard alot of great things about your performance in mod. Skys the limit for you so keep working hard as it is paying off. People are watching.

I should be up on the 25th this month and come pretty regularly after that. Just need to find a class in addition to slash, I think I would go crazy with the lack of things to work on.

Thanks, the mod car was great all weekend. I think it was the first time ive looked at someone like Mike Blackstock as competition and not an idol.

If we don't have enough to break the class up they will run together. We have ran them together in the past as well.
