The pictures are from last years Race for the cure.Some before we added dirt and some after.The grass is cut down to the dirt as low as you can go.We had just enough jumps and dirt to make it exciting.This year the drivers stand will be in a differat location and the track will be about 50 feet longer I beilieve.I cant wait if it is half as fun as last year I will still be happy.All types of tires work.

I heard something funny today but I’m not surprised. I heard one of are locally racer isn’t going to participate in the Goshen stampede because it’s a two day event or they are making all kinds of excuses, come on….LOL…. I don’t think it has anything to do with being a two day event but they are afraid to get there ass handed to them. Come on $35.00 for two days of racing in one of the most amazing environments, all the PRIZES, the big crowd that watch’s.
And to top it all of were all promoting are hobby. But most importantly were doing it for one of the most important reasons on earth. CHARITY……..And a cause that affects all of us in some way or another, CANCER.I know I’m not the fastest driver out on the track but I want to have fun and help a GREAT cause. So come on out and do it for the right reason and don’t be afraid…..You know who you are….

Even if you can only come on Saturday for qualiying or Sunday for the race just come out one day still come out and have fun an enjoy the enviorment.Don't forget it's all for charity.
