See you guys at 8:00am, lets get everyone to chip in and get the track set for practice by 9:30 and racing by 10:00am. Its up to the entire club to get the track set and going. Every racer needs to make sure every other racer is helping out.

Make sure you and your car are ready to go and in the gym one minute before the previous race ends.

If my car is not ready to go I know I will start the race late or miss the race. I am running two cars and if I have a problem I know that I will miss a race, which to me is no big deal. I don't think it is fair to make up to 9 other racers wait on a ladder when another racer has issues.

If I was running one car and can't get it set for the next round I would be very sheepish asking for a racers minute when I had an hour to get it set.

Technical issues are part of racing and we can't let them slow up the entire race day.

I want to race three heats and mains, if everyone is on board with running 3 heats and mains, we need to all help get the track set by 9:30am and avoid racers minutes like the plague. Its up to all of us to make this happen.

Race day starts at 8:00am if you live in the Twin Cities, if you are coming from Duluth, Eau Claire ect .......no one is expecting you to arrive at 8:00am. But if you live in the Twin Cities and arrive late make sure to put in twice as much work at track tear down time. Lets just set our pit areas toss some batteries on the chargers and lets not wrench on any cars until track setup is done.

What are your guys thoughts?

We also we need a couple guys to help Mark on the mike this weekend to help announce some races any Darrel Waltrip wannabees, "Boogity, boogity, boogity, let's go racing boys!"


Tom
