Roll call march 8th.
Is the racing still starting at@ 11:00 sat.
I realize this is not really a retro south race ? Just a monthly race at Snellville yet without a title that it needs...
What should it be called..?

Just found out that the HOD race and this race are both scheduled on the 8th.  I wish these two monthly races would not schedule their races on the same day.  I would like to run both as would others too.

It would help if HoD had a schedule listed somewhere.

It appears only one of the ten scheduled races conflicts with HoD. Larry and Tina Black came up with the schedule and they don't get on Slotblog to often so I'm sure they were not aware of this conflict. It sounds like most racers have decided to come to Flashbacks with is exciting to hear, Larry and Tina work hard to maintain their track and keep all the racers happy. Everyone always has a great time. I promise no one will have to tape lead to their roofs also, LMAO.

 

I talked with Joe McIntosh, he might be making an appearance and coming out of "retirement"!

Be. Great to see Joe again..
H.O.D. Needs to make a schedule .I would of liked to race the H.O.D. Race but the start times sat. Morn. convinced us to go to Snellville plus the races move much faster in Snellville .
Racing at talledaga requires us to stay over night for the 9:30 start ,we'd like maybe moving it to 11ish .. I mentioned this to Eddie not much sympathy there though ..SO....looking like 8 people from Tenn. May make it to Snellville .
We'll try and make the next H.O.D. Race ...when is it ?
Agreed.
We do need not to schedule on top of races though..

Wow, 8 from Tennessee would be awesome! I know of 4 or 5 locals plus Dallas, Howard, Red and possibly Steve and Shirley along with Booby and Bill. That would be a fantastic turnout for us!

Just a reminder that the race is this weekend! They are running Stock Car, Can Am then F1. Starts at 11, and should be done around 5 or 6. I cant wait to see everyone there. The track is stocked with plenty of cool retro parts too, even some Kelly tires I think!
