Hey All,

Just a quick update.

We have all the drawings and permits in place for the drivers stand.

Weather permitting we will start building it in 2 weeks.

Keep checking back for updates.

Doug

Hey Guys,

Sorry I haven't been on here to much lately, been busy trying to get things around for the track.

This weekend april 10th and 11th we will be digging the holes or our new drivers stand. We will be starting about 10:00 Saturday morning. If anyone wants to come out and help it would be greatly appreciated.

If all goes as planned next weekend we will start building it.

We hope to be up and ready to race by the middle of May.

Doug

Hey Everyone,

Good News!!!! All the holes are dug for the drivers stand.

A great big thank you to everyone who came out and helped. I couldn't have done it without you guys.

We hope to start building the stand next weekend. So anyone that might be available and would like to help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Doug

Brett
Will you be around Saturday? I plan on working on the track, getting it ready for the new layout. Doug told me you had some ideas which were in line with what i was thinking. Doug wants to get both of us at the track at the same time so we can to put our ideas together.
Im definitely down with the idea of a wall ride!! I have a couple ideas on how we can do it.
I will have an idea of a layout on paper for Saturday.

I should be around unless the baby comes. Could be any moment now. Helen spent a good couple hours the other night finding ideas from various tracks on the web. A few are really good and can assist with some of the other track issues when built. Any estimate on the time Saturday?

I am also under the impression Doug wanted to start setting posts Saturday.

Give my best wishes to Helen and congrats to you papa!
I'm thinking around 9:30-10:00am. Doug wants Adam and i to finish clearing off the track and start laying out the new design.

It looks like Daryl did a good job of knocking off the entire back stretch and the right side yesterday. Maybe he'll get up there some more by the weekend to have it totally leveled.

She could not find the video sadly. I did find this image though and is probably a better representation. It's nearly identical to the vid and gives a great view of the idea. These are extremely versatile for all vehicles and skill level yet can be scaled for some serious fun!
