Thanks to all of the racers who came out and supported this race. Not a big turnout this time but it was a fun event just the same.

Special thanks to Howard Harris and Dallas Jackson for their help in getting the track ready for racing and Shirley Harrington for race directing.

It was great to see Bill Bowers back at a slot car race after a year and a half. Welcome back Bill!

I agree, Pablo.  I've know many racers over the years who's cars would not make the pages of any magazine, but on the track was a different story.

 

I like that too.

 

It was good to see Bill back at the track racing.  Maybe we will start seeing more of him.
