If things go as planned there will be inside heated pits for this race. There is a building right behind were the drivers stand was that should help keep everyone a little warmer.

IT'S ON!!! We'll have details and I'll get the signups going on wheretoracerc next week after our club meeting.

The plan has been to have heated pits in the building Hal talked about. No need for breaker-popping heaters, and you don't need to pack pop-ups either! Similar to how the Canadian WinterNats pits were, only it'll be better insulated since it's a separate building.

I recommend you don't have them (the fairgrounds) scrap down so far this year, the surface was kind of slimy/slick compared to years past imho. It was scrapped down a ton, and there was a lot of dirt that wasn't used.

Good info Randy. We will keep this in consideration when we start the build.
