Track is in super shape !

 

I hope we can count you as you come in the door; HA HA! 

Sounds great to see you are talking about coming down to the fastest track in Talladega, Al.  I'll add the the real Talladega on that list.  Sure enough can't leave out the "Dirt" track....!

What a great race!  Big turnout, great people, sportsmanship and competition. I had a ball but I'm beat now.

 

Sorry about the wall shot Dallas. You caught me when I blipped the bank. You always have the ponies but the brass tubing main rails need to go!  

 

Kudos to Eddie Lawly on another well run event and to Fire Marshall J.C. for telling to smokers to GO OUTSIDE!!

 

Standout performances by Jay Guard, Eddie Lawly and Red Valentine. My guys, John Clow & Bud Green were fast but snake bit all day.

 

This racing kept a smile on my face all day just watching the awesome looking cars go around!!

Thanks to all the racers who came out and supported this race in spite of the lousy weather. Easily the best turnout we've had to date. 

 

Thanks to Steve Saunders for helping with the track prep and Shirley Harrington for race directing.
