Sounds great!!! I really want to come and run. Every time I have tried so far it's rained. Hopefully next weekend will be good.

My wife said going racing wasn't what she planned for fathers day..... I thought that was my choice, oh well

good luck, see you soon.

We have 6 huge tents that we setup as well as tables on sundays

Also we now have a driving stand, stairs down to the track, and a sprinkler system to water the track!

i bet you guys raced on Sunday didn't you. My place was soaked in rain, so I made plans with the wife and at 10am - the sun came out. I was upset all afternoon.

I really want to come - maybe this week for some practice after work.

Sorry for the delay to post - but I had to say - I had fun running on Friday nite!!

I liked the track, you guys have a nice layout there. It was a lot of fun - thanks for letting my little boy marshal - he is still talking about that - it's even better than getting to drive my car.

Don't know about this weekend, but I hope to get out of a Sunday and see how it is with a little more light on the track

Nick

How have the turnouts been for 4WD Buggy? I am interested in coming on July 18th and only have a 4WD Buggy.

Thanks

4wd buggy usually has about 4 entries....i am trying to get my hands on one as well, and the owner is waiting till the durango is released, so it will definitely be a hot class. It seems most of the beginners are sticking to 2wd shortcourse and the intermediate to advanced will run 2wd truck or buggy. 4wd buggy is all really good drivers.

trying to get more people to run 4wd shortcourse as well!

Finally! Looks like I may break free and going racing on Sunday.

I will be with the beginers in the Short Course class. See you then!
