Wow! If it isn't the famous Jimmy Hacksaw!

I might have to come down your way a few times this year, there's not much to choose from up here.

Are you going to Cleveland this year?

And before anyone asks, no, there will no Rallybu exhibitions this time. :lol:

jrp 09-18-2008 10:53 AM

Hey Socko!

Come on, we all loved the Rallybu !

I think the normal crew will be hitting Cleveland again.

I hear that St Louis doesn't have a carpet track at the moment either, so we might pull a few from up that way.

Pack your crap and come run!

See Ya.

You guys know what classes are already "Set in Stone"? Would like to know pretty soon. IDK if i wanna run Oval at Allens and Joes, or Road Course with you guys.

You guys are closer, just dont know yet?

I would definatly be in for a VTA or Stock Foam Touring Class!!!

Track will be open for practice this Wednesday evening for anyone that wants to come.

Just wondering, do you allow Paragon or is it Jack only?

jrp 09-24-2008 09:30 PM

Paragon is fine for now. Track owner doesn't like it due to smell, but so far hasn't said anything this season. We are all running it right now.

Bring your own table/chair/snacks.

No restrooms in building, but plenty of weeds out back...

McDonalds about a mile or two down the road.
