2008 ingalls motorspeedway, indiana

racing season is starting up soon at ingalls motorspeedway! i thought would start up a thread here for peolpe interested in racing at ingalls speedway, or have raced before at the track. our first points race will be April 28th and for you people that race the Tri-state series race #1 will be on June 30th at ingalls motorspeedway. i personally have been working hard through the winter to get ready for the racing season on both of new my cars. i did not do much racing last year and when i did race, it was my old car that need some major overhauling. so, for this year i'm going to work on doing alot of racing and try and finish well every race. 2 new cars are ready to hit the track, need to get some testing done. ingalls 1st day of practice is April 21 practice & clean up. hope to see you at the track this season!!!!

Carpet racing season is about over so, I'm getting my car ready to go now... The motor has been laid down (which I done last fall), but I tore the car down sent the chassis to Binnicker to have him put it on the jig to square it up, have it re powder coated. When I get it back I will re-build it, new hinge pins, rod ends (courtesy of Frank) new style WCM shocks & updated front spindles, new red cap. All of that good sh.. Hopefully it will be a better season than last year. I may not have time to make all of the races, but I am going to try to make as many as possible. Definitely the Tri-State and hopefully the Midwest Nationals.

The 7th is the last carpet race of the year at NewCastle. $$$ Race. It should draw a pretty big out of town brushless crowd, after that I will focus my attention to the 1/4 scale. I tried to get Holloway off of his old sprinter, but he is going to keep it for a dirt car. It is just as well, I'd just tear it up too.

My wife and I have the same time off and plan on going to Ingalls to race in the Tri-State race on the 29th and 30th of June.
I have a few questions. Can I stay at the track or go to a campground close by? We have a 24 foot camper and wanted to do some golf and camp a few days. I know itís the 4th of July holiday at that time and want to get reservations if I can. Any information would be great.

Thank you.

Jim, You can leave your camper there for the race, there is power set up all around the track. I know Brett G. Wheels in his big ol' motor home when he comes down! As far as campgrounds, golf and what not I am not shure.


I did not get a chance to go to the yearly meeting at Gaugers house this year...Are we going to get a new scoring system this season that utilizes personal transponders? This would be such a vast improvement over the old system. I know this issue was talked about last year...

MPR went to Personal Transponders and the updated AMB system; actually, the system was already there, we were still using the rechargeable models.

You should be able to sell the track transponders (and your old system?) to help fund a new system. Also, some of the financial liability is shifted to the racer by having them provide their own personal transponders.

Email or PM if you guys would like more details.

Thanks,
Joe

Thank you Brad,
I imagine I need to contact mr. Gaugers and let him know we're coming. I can figure out the golf and camp site after the race. I'll just make reservation for after that somewhere.

Sonny is absolutely correct about racing the quarterpound sprint cars. I ran 1 race at the end of last year and told everybody it's the most fun I have had with my clothes on in thirty years! Can't wait 36 hours and counting down Easley here we come.
