Heath glad you chose a Saturday and Sunday Race.... I just hope the wife has our baby on the 5th when schedualed. That would be the only reason I would not make it! Look forward to this event. Keep up the great work, it's always nice to call Maximus my home away from home!

I like the format....Sounds like Heath is doing whatever he can to get the guys from far away home at a decent time.....It's easy when you live an hour away....It really becomes tough when the races get over at 7:00 pm and you have a 6 hour drive ahead of you......Hopefully you can make it Brad it will be a great race......Also I like the idea of 2 heats on sunday...Heath always manages to sort the heats pretty good so it shouldn't be a problem having a clean run....

i know mike but the problem is i would probably not be able to get there until 8 A.M. sunday morning so it would be tough. who knows maybe i'll come sunday morning and use the first heat as a practice and hope i can get in a good run for the 3rd. we'll see i'll try my hardest i hate missing these races as they are the best ones around and always draw a good crowd. hope 2 c u there. Brad :thumbsup:

Brad,

I have thought long and hard about the time changes and I applaud you for still considering running Sunday with only the two qualifiers.

As always I enjoy having you and all the racers from Radical Ricks, hope you can still make this race.

I am aware that changing the race to a two day event there will be many happy and unhappy racers. If it works out better then we will stick with it, if not then we will change back.

Time will only tell and I really and hoping for nother great race.

Don't forget the track is always open for practice/racing on Sundays up until the race.

Heath
