60 racers for the season opener. WOW!!!! It was a good night of racing and the track was in great shape for the first race. Dan and Neil did a great job keeping the racing moving along. Only had one little glitch with the computer for the first race. Can't wait for saturday to get here!!

It was nice to see the old gang and some new un-familiar faces in the pits. The track was fast (considering the begining of the season).

Props to the organization of the track and racers...Dan and Neil did a great job! 60 racers prove that this track is doing something right!!! I hope that other track owners are reading this and taking notes!!......Spec racing is what is needed to keep racing alive. It introduces new racers and helps bring back some of the old ones too (sorry about calling Flag old!).

Dick's car was very fast in COT and it looks like Jacques and Greg have the Truck class covered.

See ya at the races,

Tony,I think once Dick and I figure what's wrong with the Hooters Ford f150,we will be a contender again,also Chad Blair was fastest on practice day and never count out the track record holder Jason Lavalley.63 racers on opening day is CRAZY,like Tony said SPEC racing is the answer,with this economy the way it is ,no one can afford to race pro classes like we did 10 years ago.

Would like to get some input on this.
We are thinking of starting the Rustlers,Slash and Renagades at noon witch would get them done about 4P.M . Then would go to pratrics for the other classes ,plus there would be about 15 mins between the truck heats for pratrics for everyone. The ideal behind this is with so many new racer's and cars this season getting done will be alot later this season.By doing this move we should be done racing by 11 P.M. so the people that come so far can get home at a better hour.I have talked to 95% of the truck drivers and they are all fine we this move.

Please respond

Thank You BIG DOG :wave:

hey B.D.
for me its a real good idea:thumbsup:as more racer will make it in the next few weeks which means an even later time to finidh the races . I will not be a weekly racer every second week or so but getting home at 2 p.m. is a little late...let us know how it works out and a what time would COT and Truck parctice would start
