Guys,
 
We look forward to everyone coming to the race tomorrow and should have a descent crowd for this race. Several of us are meeting around 8 AM for breakfast at Parkside Cafe located at 8180 49th Street North ,Pinellas Park, FL 33781 if you're able to join us that would be great.

Doors will open at 9 AM tomorrow and hopefully we will be able to start the first race around 10:30-11 AM.
 
Mark... will you be joining us?

No, we run our Beagles on Saturdays as long as the weather is cool.

I might race this summer, if I'm not skiing or boarding with the kids on the lake. Busy man these days.

Mark...

I am pushing to have the Florida Wing Car Series run more on Sundays moving forward, at least at my place.

Is that something you would be able to participate in? Surely finding one day a month to support a hobby you seem to so vocal about shouldn't be that hard.

Thank you for posting the top 3 for each class we ran. Do you have a total count now of racers who participated in each of the 3 classes and overall standings?

If so, when you get the chance please e-mail me the final points and i'll post it at my raceway for the racers to see.
