So, not running Retro on my track this year and want to do flexis. This won't be a point series, just fun racing for the summer season. If there is enough interest to keep this going we can start a point series in Nov and race over the winter. Also, at least for the June 17 race there won't be any lunch provided, we can discuss if we want to keep doing pizza or other options on June 17.

Can someone tell me where Mike's track is located and whether it is a commercial track or a home/club track?

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Mike's is a very nice four-lane home track (originally built by Cruzin Bob) and is located in Spokane, WA.  

There should be a post in this thread of a 16 ft expansion done a few years back. He's been a track owner in the Northwest Retro Racing League for years.

At this point it looks like it will only be 5 of us. Do we want to cancel or hope a couple others show up? Kent won't be able to attend. 

 

Tom is feeling better, he will be coming tonight.

Is there interest in doing another flexi race day, either July 22nd or 29th? This wouldn't replace the race on July 15th in Montana, just adding another day of racing flexi's if there is interest.
