Yep, 4.5" stockers at every race just like you guys wanted. I would like to keep qualifying and stick to 3 classes a day.

Definitely glad to see the stock cars at each event. It looks like the GRRR/Retro South event will be in June? Based on their schedule, it looks like just can am and F-1 will run? 

 

I love running my stock car but I do think that would be best for all parties with the amount of entries that event had in 2013.

Personally, I think offer a big box plaque at each event for the overall combined laps for all three divisions. 

 

Truthfully, if I am leading the points, it will still not dictate whether I come to a race. So I would prefer more/better awards at each individual event instead of anything year end.

 

Maybe a most improved driver at the year end and a most outstanding but that is it.

Thanks, John.

 

The majority of the racers informed me that they wanted more races this year, so I booked them. I think it will be exciting with 3 new raceways in the mix also.

No it's not. The track is in Marietta, Ga.

I'm sure you wish it was in Cordele, Ga right?

Nice job. Ralph!!

 

Looks like a great schedule for 2014 and I like running the Stock Cars at every event (hey, this is the Deep South!).

 

I vote "No" for points this year, there are usually only three or four drivers that make enough races to contend for a "Title" so I think it will be better for the majority of the racers to give nice plaques/prizes for each race.
