Any one on the property of FTRC will consider a trespasser if you do not have a PAID in FULL membership

THANK YOU.........

There was not racing during that time, it must be a management doesn't feel like messing with it rather than a racer issue? If it's to big of a hassle for you guys to keep it open or too big of a financial loss that's one thing but to blame it on a couple fools 3 days after the fact is weak.

Well, it was a nice little track. I met some pretty cool guys, the place had a lot of potential. Hate to see you go, as these venues are few and far between (far, being the operative word). I built and managed a track while living in Florida so my daughter would have a place to race, and it is a real hassle, hard to have fun, and it seems there is always more criticism than praise, so I can see why you're making that decision.

Like I have always said... be good to your tracks, offer support, and have fun, because you never know when it is going to go away.

Good luck guys, I'll see some of you in Winchester and Gs

I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS TIME TO SAY THAT I AM SORRY TO SEE THE TRACK CLOSE, TOO. THIS HOBBY CAN BE SO MUCH FUN WITH THE RIGHT GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND SO DAMN DEMANDING AND DISCOURAGING WITH OTHERS.
B & ALF DID A HELL OF A JOB TAKING OVER THE TRACK AND PUT THEIR HEART AND SOULS INTO MAKING A NICE PLACE FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO ATTEND.
HOPE WE WILL STILL GET TO SEE YOU GUYS HERE (OR MAYBE I CAN LEARN TO RUN A SCT AND COME DOWN TO PLAY AT YOUR PRIVATE TRACK.

I KNOW I SPEAK FOR MANY WHEN I SAY "THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU TWO HAVE DONE & YOU AND THE TRACK WILL BE MISSED!"

damn right the track was sweet this past weekend.people say things about surface, but I don't they understand this track was built in one of the driest summer to date.It is very hard to pack a track when the clay is dry and the lack of water. Ftrc uses well water, and pumping high volume more than once a week is not a good idea. b and alf gave us they best track they could, and deserve respect and understanding through this time of trouble. thanks guys and I hope to see you two at G's for some racing.
