View Full Version : PAUL HEITZ memorial race TRAX 70
07-21-2004, 05:47 PM
I just wanted to post the days for the memorial race for my friend Paul Heitz .Paul passed away earlier this spring and we setup a race to help his family out and get all the guys together for a 2 day race at Pauls favorite track ,,,,The new owner was kind enough to let us use his new renovated TRAX 70 for the race ....The days of the race are August 6ththru August 8th... Practice on August 6th ,3rounds of quilifing on Saturday 7th and 1 round and the mains on Sunday 8th .......Please come on down and race. IF ANYONE NEEDS TIRES I WILL GIVE THEM TIRES FOR THE WEEKEND >>>>>>>I believe that a hotel rate has been set with a hotel that is close and I am sure Jorge M. will post details ....It would mean alot to Pauls son if we could make this race as fun as possiable and I know that alot of manufactors have donated prizes for the racers that attend ...
If you need more info please feel free to ask SETUPS can be sent to anyone who wants to attend this race ....
Really looking forward to seein you and everyone coming out for this one, especially Justin. I can't begin to thank you for helping get the word out for this special race in memory of Paul.
For people that have never been there or haven't been there in years, the track is super smooth, and the surface has a lot of bite with very little tire wear thanks to Paul acid washing the surface a couple years ago. Oh, Iforgot to mention its FAST! Now there's plenty of power & lights, even a few trailer hookups are available.
Just bring tables, chairs and cords!

Thanks, I will check my cap tire storage bin!!
If you have old caps, alot of different combinations will work, there are some guys runnin tires that are 5 + years old...... especially in stock, just about anything round with rubber on it will work...

As promised the zultz are posted, just visit www.Trax70.com (http://www.Trax70.com) and click race results. I would like to again, thank all the racers who came out for this event to remember Paul Heitz. All the sponsores who donated prizes, and everyone who helped during the day to make the day run smooth. Even if it was to put up the last races results, it was a big help. What more can I say that hasn't been said already. Great racing, great weather and great memories. I would also like to thank Justin Heitz, Steve Miller, Paul Morrow for coming up and saying a few words on Paul's behalf. And I hope next years event will be even bigger.

Like I said at the race this was my closure and it was nice to have it a track that I can remember things like yesterday we did there and to be with all you guys made it extra special.
