I agree, it is way easier to say than do. I only say that because I'm terrible on my best day and I only broke on the bricks once in mornig practice. My son left the right front end on the straight and was good the rest of the day.

That [email protected] light pole (or LI-PO if your a southern redneck) on the other hand..... it actually moves onto the straight and has a huge magnet in it!

Super Stock buggy, and short course truck are pretty popular. We've been getting atleast 2 heats of super stock. I believe pro-2 is the more popular short course class but im not sure.

Default Saturday racing

I don't think the SRS website is being updated, so anybody know what time practice/racing starts on Saturday? I swear I saw it has moved to 4, but can't find a post anywhere.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure gates open at 12:00. I am sure racing starts at 4:00

Wednesday and it looks like rain. Is the track open/closed, racing or no racing?

I don't recall ever having to wait a week for the track to dry out in the past? I know they used to pump the water out after a storm. Not anymore? Is Hobbytown still maintaining the track?

I have to keep calling and asking a different person each time for their prediction for when the track will reopen. All the predictions so far this week have not come to pass.

It also appears the SRS website is no longer being updated. Is there any other method available to get scheduling info? I really don't want to keep calling all the time.
