Mr. Tamiya,

Thanks for the compliments. Yeah the drivers stand drivers stand drivers stand turned out to be a problem. When we put it up we were unsure of it and went with a lets try it and see attitude. Well didn't work. Sunday we are going to go and move the drivers stand drivers stand drivers stand to the opposite wall and move it towards the front of the building a little. It's going to be a little tight and definitly a one way street for drivers on, drivers off. We couldn't put the track down much further towards the current drivers stand side because, we felt it would limit the walkway too much but, ya gotta work with what ya got. New stand location will be in place for Tuesday practice.

BTW Doors open at 5:30pm both days.

You all will like it on that side!!!!! I picked up over 1 lap and that was standing on the floor.
Robertw321 >> When you get it there check the plastic flipper going onto the straight it maybe just a bit too high.
See you all on Friday!! Should be a big turnout of BRP cars :thumbsup:

Hey Guys,
I have a few quick questions. What time does the doors open on Friday? What is going on with 12th Scale? I plan on showing up, have not raced in a while. See, with the Gate running on Sunday, well that gets in the way of watching my Steelers! Friday night will be great for me!
Thanks,
Jerry

We had one 12th scaler show up. Hoping for more.


Remember practice on Tuesday 5:30pm. $5.00 per driver.

BTW There's something just not the same watching what was a live sporting event on tape.

He means the inside of the turn coming onto the straight away, the white plastic is too tall and blocks view of the BRP cars,12th and the touring cars once you move the stand. Once you move it you will see what we mean.

Ok, We moved the drivers stand and reduced the height of all the plastic flappers. We should be good to go on Tuesday.

Hey Guys,
I am for sure going on Friday, I hope that there is more 12th scales showing up. Like I said before, this is the only place I know that is racing on Friday's and that works out great for me. Does anyone know when they race in Toledo? Oh and joneser... YES, the Steelers are worth watching, we are 5 and 1. You must be a Browns fan.... Sucks that you can't make it Jay. See everyone Friday. Oh, one last thing, if I am the only one in 12th scale, we I be able to run?
Thanks,
Jerry

Toledo is saturdays I believe, YEs you will be able to run with the touring cars, but as long as matt the cat shows up(which he usually does) they will run 2 in a class! and have seperate 12th scale.

Hey, real quick, I am going to be coming down the turnpike from Sandusky, how do I get there?
Thanks,
Jerry
Get off at exit 161 on the turnpike/Which is the strongsville/RT 71 exit. get on 71 north take it to the snow rd exit. At the end of the exit turn right onto snow rd. Stay on snow rd. till Stumpf or chevy boulavard(same street just named different on either side of the intersection) turb left onto Chevy Blvd.(right is stumpf) as you turn right you will see a Mr. chicken on your right. the plaza behind Mr chicken is the plaza, Once on Chevy Blvd turn in the second driveway on the right into the plaza and its in the old DMV Bureau. Hopefully thats cut and dry enough

That was about it. If anyone has any ideas LMK.
I like the idea of the heads up third round of qualifying but I feel we should reshuffle the qualifiers so that it will even be more like the main with the faster guys up front, Just an idea

What happened to the fairgrounds track?
I thought that place was really cool.
Maybe I can get to the new track one night for a practice round.

Talk to you soon.
Tracy :cool:

Where ever it may be, front back middle just thought it was best at least to shuffle the heads up qualifier. ;)
