Thanks Eric, For all the help today! Head is just fine, it's the rest of my body that I'm not sure about. I would probably still be there diggin'. I have the 8' stand addition cut and laid out, just needs screwed together. Shawn put the pieces on the drivers stand.
Shawn, if you can get the (3 ) 10' 6x6's and (5 Lg) SAKRETE to the track, Tim and I'll come back up and get the posts set. Let me know.

Well i am watching the weather channel.....and Somerset is the winner for the most snow up at the laurel hill park at 18" of snow..... I was out at the track it only have maybe 8-10 " but it seems like it is compressed....

Weather this weekend may be cold and wet.... lets see I will be laying the pipe down this week, after this amount of snow the clay always get smooth so no need to drag it..... i cant believe i said snow is better then dragging
for the track...lol

Good luck today guys. I'm out with personal car problems & work later today. Shawn, post what got & left to be done? This week's weather looks good & believe I can make it out a few times. Off next weekend! Have both vehicles up & running, now if they can take the abuse of racing??!!

Going to try coming up an evening this week and get the stand posts cut to height, notched, and the headers put in. Then we should be good to move the stand onto it this weekend, and add the side additions.

Eric, I may be able to come up Friday also from noon on if that works with your schedule. Let me know. I should be available Sat & Sun also.

Shawn, I think we'll need to drag a bunch this weekend if possible and fine tune several areas. But, then we should be in pretty good shape. May need to think on raising the inside of the low vis area, but lets wait until we have the stand in its final location and see what we have. Just my thoughts!!!!

Thanks guys,
Jim

Track has been drug and almost smooth perfectly. I ran two packs on it today. I need to get the pipe staked, and laps need to be turned on it. So bring the cars out and let fine tune the jumps.

thanks

PS it was perfectly moist today!!! awesome and super fast! Like touring car and offroad combined. Reminds me of the worlds tracks
