Yeah. It was kind of low last week. We even had a four wheel drive run in our buggy class. Three 4wd guys showed up and two of them had to leave. So Kevin raced with us.

Yeah. Last week was the end. I think they may end up giving trophies instead of money. The collections just weren't what they expected. I would rather have a trophy anyway. How did you feel about the points series. Is there anything that you did or didn't like??? If so then we need to make some comments.

Yeah I missed 4 weeks - I didn't like that. LOL

Umm with them doing 50-50 drawings and taking money for racing. If they don't pay out after saying they were there will be some bitching.

You may be right. The only thing is, they where talking about paying out to the top five people per class. That could make it where the winner only makes like $30. Which sucks.

Yeah, I think I'm in 5th I might get a Dime. LOL ahahaha

I think they should not do points and payouts and lower racing to $10 instead of $12. Thats way everyone is a winner. LOL

Yeah that would be cool. The points and pay outs didn't come from our entrance fees, it came from those 50/50 tickets. I am sure that you knew that though.

Yeah I thought from the start payouts would be small because of that. I guess their thought process was that more people would show up if they wanted to be in the points.

I could honestly care less I'd rather have $10 racing.

The track would have been only ten feet wider if the pole had been moved. If you have the $600 dollars to move the pole, I am sure he wil gladly do it. The track is plenty big for 1/8 scale buggies. they work on the track constantly to try and improve it every week. From what I have seen all of the racers have enjiyed it very much. People should come down and see the facility before they talk down about someone's facility. Just my two cents.

I raced there last weekend and it is a nice track. Plenty big enough for anything you want to run. The clay is very loose and broken so bring some real tires.

I'm not trying to dog it - just stating what I had heard (Notice I said Rumor & when i said that it wasn't open yet.). I'm waiting on my motor to come in and I'll be there. I can't wait to race there actually. Damn LHS is taking their time on my motor. Tower had in stock - ugggg.

Hey man I ended up going down there on Saturday. There where quite a few Brooks guys there. Troy even bought a GT and showed up. There had to have been 20-30 1/10 scale truck guys there. It was real fun. I bet there where 50-60 people in all classes. I have got a tent and will be there next weekend if you get your motor. Let me know.
