Default 2014 Spring Classic - 80/35 Raceway Grimes, IA

Tax season got you down? How about an intense weekend of racing to cheer you up! It's nearly time for our third annual Spring Classic race at 80/35 Raceway in Grimes Iowa! The 2014 Spring Classic will be held April 11-13 on our 70'x40' high traction clay indoor track and has already drawn some of the fastest drivers from the Midwest to do battle!

80/35 Raceway is located in Grimes, Iowa right off the interstate. Very easy to find and convenient to get to! 80/35 Raceway provides pit tables (with shelves), chairs, and power for our racers, and Bluegroove Hobbies is on site for all your race needs!

There are plenty of hotels around the area as well as some great restaurants and tons of places to kick back after a long day of racing... all within a stone's throw of our track

Default Videos from the Spring Classic

Thanks to the out of towners that came out and supported the race--Those that didn't, don't know what you missed!! Many of the final results went down to the third A Main to determine a champion.

Got started uploading the videos from this weekend, here's a link to the youtube playlist--

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...7Tktz0i4bzMHbw

Started recording at the 2nd round of qualifiers and clear through the mains, should have most all of them in entirety. I know once or twice I went up and the camera had shut down, so there might be a couple missing or cut off. also once the camera had been moved so I don't know what I got on that clip. Probably about 90 videos so it may take me a while to get them all up, I'll try to keep plugging away on them when I can.

Keep checking back and enjoy!!

Phil

Phil, looks like copy paste on the link from the forum shortens the link.

Correct Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...7Tktz0i4bzMHbw

Thanks Dave--that's what I get for copy and pasting--and not checking to make sure it works. Both links should work now--
