Yep, probably going to need to limit racing and or practice days in order to have a great track surface. We are all ready proud of you Carl.

AWESOME!! It's going to be great being 20min away from a track! Better than the 1 1/2 hr drive I used to do at Loganville

Traction was not the greatest. It seems someone ran a floor polisher down the front straight. Had the sheen of a freshly waxed marble floor!!!! I was however able to throw down a 16.5 lap or two.

Traction on Wednesday was a little dicey at first but once we swept later in the day the track improved greatly. The front straight seemed to be the slickest. Just makes you drive better. C

Last Sat we swept before each heat and traction was really good. A program of always sweeping before each race would really help. Problem is the laziness factor.

2wd Buggy is the biggest class. If it has to be SCT I would say 2wd. 4wd SCT has really died for the most part.

I believe you guys will be very happy with the traction at this Metro race, I have fixed dozens and dozens of pot holes, widen the tight lanes, reposition the new 400watt high pressure sodium lights for more lighting of the track.
Any grape soda, or sugar will not be put on no later than Thursday, 6pm an in MODERATION! I have not really like the sugar idea as a traction aid.
I know all the Hot Shots racers remember the great traction the track had without these additives, the track has been kept wet for track repair, all repairs and widening the lanes will finished TOMORROW the 16th!

Sorry for the lack of great traction for the past couple of week, I have tried a few thing and few ways of preparing the track, my goal was to start now to have the track ready for the Nov race.
I wanted to find out just how much water is really needed, so when Nov gets here the track will be maintaince free from Friday morning to Sat night.

Carl Knight

PS: SPREAD THE WORD THURSDAY PRACTICE DAY THE 18TH, WILL BE CANCELLED, I HAVE NOT CLEARED THIS WITH BRAD BUT I'M SURE HE WILL UNDERSTAND.
