Lol Eric why use a 84 when you can use a 64? More power is always better.

More power can also get you in trouble faster remember we are limited to what kind of tires we can use which is the limiting factor not so much the arm. But goodluck if you can make it work. Maybe ill test my qualifiers lol.

Jason, Thanks for the shout out! It was a lot of work and with Sam chipping in and doing tech and taking care of braid issues we got thru it all with only one issue that needed to be worked out and i know we made the right decision.

 

MORE CLASSES

I have had some requests to run something faster. We have a few options provided Debbie lets us have the track longer.

 

Add either OMB, 27L or TMO to the monthly schedule. Or we can rotate them every month, or?

 

We can ask for a different day and just run cobalts.

 

I am open to suggestions. If you have an idea, please post it and lets see what everybody thinks about it.

 

There are 2 things I want. The first is to have good racing with good fields. The second is to continue the phoenix program with "A" and "B" groups

I think we should run every 3 or 4 months OMB,27L and TMO only on that day if we tech at 9-9:30 and move it along no 3hr breaks then we could be done by 7ish

 

my 2 cents

 

if there is a free weekend Day
