Default 2013 - 2014 Midwest Grandslam

OK guys, it's that time again. We've been fielding a lot of questions so here is an early tidbit of INFO

YES, The Grandslam series will happen again
YES, It will Start with the Halloween Classic
IT will be more centrally located with the tracks closer together, and a new venue or 2 or 3.
We are working on something we thing is special and that is causing a short delay in a full announcement but it should be worked out very soon and I would expect a full information release within a week.

Thank-you all for your support of this awesome series
The Midwest GrandSlam committee

Sorry for the absence guys, I'm in the middle of buying a house and relocating the family, so Sean and John Peoples will be shouldering a lot of the Pre-season leg-work.

A lot of people know so I'll just make it public at this time. It looks like the Ruggles's are unable to continue with the US Indoor Champs. As it stands right now if it is to continue it will be put on by the Midwest Grandslam Committee as a part of our series for now and perhaps spun off as a standalone event in a year or two. As all of you are aware a hotel event is a logistic and financial nightmare and we are looking into the feasability of this and have been doing so for the last couple months. We have gotten good responses from a fer of the Key players and it looks like this is going to happen.

Keep in mind, our first goal is to bring that event back to it's original status, so if we have to cut corners or sacrifice something we're not doing it, DO IT RIGHT OR NOT AT ALL,

With the sad and sudden passing of our's and the mid-west racing communities good friend Bob Hartman, we are a week or so behind schedule, but should have a full update real soon.

Good luck Ken, I hope this race can happen. Maybe bring back the "Triple Crown" Vegas, Cleveland and Snowbirds. Just some thoughts.

That would be sweet. I don't really do much traveling outside of the vicinity at the moment, but I would love to do something like that.

For the Grand Slam series in the past it was your choice of Jaco blue, Solaris Mediums, or sweep 32. I am sure it will be the same this year. For the indoor champs race, it is usually Sweeps.

The first leg of the Grandslam has SOLD OUT 2 months prior to the event, in less than 2 weeks after registration opened. Stayed tuned for more info on the series, I feel confident the November Venue will set records for recent attendance
