We had 11 sedan drivers last Friday. It was split between Friday and Saturday, but the sedans are starting to move to Saturday. The season just started, so I expect the numbers to pick up.

Well, after a week off for building work, we're back at it. Racing resumed Thursday night.

Last week on the dirt track, a group from Green Bay came down to check us out. The GB racers really showed the locals around our own track. Track records were crushed in both Stock Gearbox and Mod Buggy. Good job Green Bay. Hope to see you guys again to keep our competitive juices flowing. We'll see you all Wednesday night in the dirt.

i ussually go to trackside on sundays for sedan but i may stop by some sat night to see whats going on. On the website it has a stock sedan and sedan mod class. is it like last year where stock is rubber and mod is foam or have you gone to all foam? i stopped by one night and the track looked small enough that there shouldnt be an advantage to the person having a mod vs a stock motor. i think you should just have a stock rubber and stk foam class. just my $.01
if you guys move the road course track to the oval track ill be there every week!

First on road race on the big carpet was a great success. Snowy set a great course. Sedans were running mid 9 sec. laps. 1/12 scale in the low 9's. Fast lap that I saw was a 9.1 by a 1/12th scale. Saturday night the mod sedans looked fast but I didn't see the lap times. Next week, same setup. On road will be in the big room from know on.

Last weeks off road was fast for some. Nick Billie broke the Stock truck record by two laps. That also put him a lap faster that the mod buggies. The track dried out fast as the night went on so this week I will try a little water between heats. A few mini-Ts were seen on the track. Hope to have a full heat this week. They're already in the computer. Bring em out guys.
