Default Overgeared Racing Presents 2015 "Big Chill" November 6-7-8

We're happy to get the ball rolling Early this year. We have confirmed the Dates for our event and will be working all summer to make "Big Chill" Bigger and Better than it has been in the past.

This will once again be a stand alone event on the Beautiful polished Concrete floor of the Chilliwack Heritage Park. Friday Practice, Saturday Qualifiers and Last chance qualifiers with Single Mains with bump ups on Sunday. More information will be passed along as the decisions are made and sponsors confirmed. Hope everyone can fit this event into their Schedule.

Did someone say free coffee machine? Should I just pick it up now or will you bother going through the trouble of bringing it to the chill?

A few of us were thinking of making the trek down... what time (roughly) are things wrapped up by on Sunday? And Friday... what time can we get in at?

Thanks Anthony

If all goes according to schedule, Big Chill Mains should conclude by 3:30 or 4:00pm; it's a little dependent on number of entries, but we know there's going to be (and we welcome) lots of out-o-towners.

Still working out details for Friday, but right now we're aiming to have the track open for practice in the early afternoon. I'll post again as soon as things firm up.

Cheers,

-Doug
