Thanks for getting the schedule up early Z - helps all of us get our weekends lined up good deeds done and requests for hall passes made.

OH, and I suppose winter is when we're supposed to rebuild our cars isn't it????

Sounds good, I've added these to my calendar. Also got a 13.5 so I should be ready to go. Are there any requirements for tires?

Thanks for getting this up, looks good to me as well.

What would be the interest in doing a practice / warm up race May 10/11?

Thanks

Took the touring car out to the asphalt track this evening. I had to try out the new motor and it was fast for sure! I was surprised that even with a dusty track and using my carpet setup, the car was driving really well. I can't wait to drive it on a prepped track!

Mark, Are you going to be having a get together to paint and or repair boards for the track. Let me know, if my schedule allows I would like to come down and help when you need it.

Last Sat, Duck and I removed all the blue boards. Next sat, the 19th, we are going to power wash a few areas and do a little painting.

The following weekend, the 26th and 27th, we will be painting the new boards and reassembling the track. That weekend, help would be good.
