For those of you who might be wondering, yes the track IS being repaired. Myself, Ken & his son started last night. The back stretch has been completely pulled up from the exit of 2 to the entry in 3 and other sections will be done as needed on a spot by spot basis, the worst of it as some of you saw was the back it was UGLY, but it looks like it will lay back down just as smooth as it was before. This was THE Saturday night place to race in 2004 and 2005 should prove to be no different. Call Ken for the fall schedule @ 518-792-7272.

P.S. If any of you are in a giving mood & have some spare time we could use some extra hands on this.

Thanks,
John

John,

U-L-G-Y for sure, LOL, but didn't much effect the car. I'll be looking forward to the first race. All kinds of new stuff on the way :thumbsup:

See you soon.
Later, 10%
I ran there the other day and i couldnt do anything. I pulled it after 1 pack. It would catch the body and in the corners the tiling was coming up so it would catch the car mid corner and shoot it to the infield. My new KSG CS is dialed tho. Looking forward to another action packed year. With alot of traveling this year. Anyone who wants to take me places feel free to ask :thumbsup:

The repairs went well the back stretch is 110% better than it was. It's as close to being a "POOL TABLE" as we can get it. There are a couple of new patches going into 3 but they fit perfectly NO BUMP. The only thing that we may do and I emphasize the word may, is the center piece in the corners. they're not great but until we get some cars on them to see if there is a problem i don't want to mess with it. So everybody come on up and give it a try.

I am planning on coming out this Saturday (9/25) is there any interest in running mod this weekend? Also if Pedro comes out as well would we be able to run mod if there was just 2 of us?

:mad: Holy ?@#!, I knew someone woluld have to say something negative. That track is 110% better than it was a month ago, and since when did we start racing on pool tables! Ken, Chris & I literally busted our asses to get it back close to where it was last year. No one else offered to throw in an extra hand so don't criticize for what you wouldn't do yourself, but for Wee and those of you worried about the gap coming out of 2 it's way out of the racing grove about a foot in from the outer wall. I don't know anyone who "RACES" out there. However if it becomes a HUGE ISSUE of course we'll repair it, and by the way if you are racing out there maybe you should consider a different hobby like pottery or knitting because you are definately not up to the task in this game.

John:mad:

P.S. If you want to see a track that's rough try attending a week long event on a temporary track where they race 24/7, by the end of the week there isn't even a track left you're racing on the plywood sub floor!!!!! I think some of us need to learn to appreciate what we have right in our own back yards instead of bitching about the small imperfections. We didn't have to repair anything, but the racing was so good last year that we felt it was the right thing to do.
