Thanks for the info who!!
I was going to call Curt tonight and ask if/when they were going to start up again.

No sunday racing this year? I know a few guys who can no longer make it up on the weekday evening racing....

sweet.

I'd venture a guess that the turnout next wednesday will be a little light because the regionals in Chilicothe are that weekend, but I'm not going to the regionals, so I'll be there. Looking forward to seeing the new layout.

I'll be bringing my digital camera so that I can get some better shots than my phone cam can take, so let me know if they need some shots for the website. I'm no pro with the cam, but they might be good enough to use on the site.

Suppose we can set up a Iowa Racers forum on here so we know where any changes in schedules etc.. will be. Just an idea. plus any other tracks that may pop up that people know about.

It was good. Small crowd, but that was to be expected. It felt like an organized practice night more than anything. 4 mod buggies, 2 stock, 2 mod trucks and 2 4wd.

I enjoyed driving the track. It's not big on jumps, but it is technical and tight with a fast outer section. It'll require good skills with the brakes, as there is a tight 180 at the end of the back straight.

I took a few shots, and if they are any good I'll post them up here later tonight. Hopefully I won't be so rushed and I'll get some shots next week as well.

Curt said they'd be racing at least one sunday this month. He said he'd have a flyer with the schedule posted up next wednesday

I dont think the Fort Dodge guys are planning on running nitro on their indoor.

Once the indoor track in Evansdale is complete (tentative date Nov. 1) we will be running nitro and electric inside.
