There was little time to preapre for this year's event and everything was done at the last minute. While the blame is being placed on Scotty or Billy, the real blame should be placed on me and the guys here in the Reedy department at AE.

We placed all our eggs in one basket hoping that some far-fetched options would work out. But there was no back-up plan. Thankfully, Billy was willing to host the race, and Scotty willing to run it. If they had not stepped in, there would not be a race.

We will post the list of confirmed invitational drivers today or tomorrow. And I think drivers can still enter the Open classes, so get your entries in and join the fun!
Rick, just out of curiosity... if a class does not Fill up are you open to allowing Racer to Sign up for 2 classes, based on a first come basis... ???

That is not a bad idea. We have not done it in the past because the race is usually filled or over sold. But the decision is not up to me. I will pass this along to Scotty and see what he thinks.

JP - Numan is in Invitational. Someone must have signed him up for Open.

This is Billy from SpeedWorld; I just made some arrangements with a hotel and w/breakfast. The hotel will hold the rooms until May 10 ONLY. I can ONLY reserved 10 rooms at a time since it is this late, but Amber willing to help be out. If we make reservations before the May 10 dead line on all 10 rooms, Amber said she will add 5 rooms at a time if available. I think she said she only has 20 rooms left and that is with double beds.

to make reservations it will be under GROUP BLOCK REEDY RACE

sHE GOING TO GIVE IT TO YOU GUYS FOR $60.00 + TAX and that is cheep. It is the best I can do guys. It about 8 miles from the track

True, but I know Billy and anything he does or is associated with is top notch. If there's any problems I know he would take it personally, it doesn't matter if someone else was "in charge".

Btw Rick, you gonna run at BCR anytime soon...?

Steve....you are so right bro. Thanks again for everything this past weekend and see ya on the first day of practice.
