I originally announced another September date, but it did not attract any ISRA racers as I had hoped, and with the hot September weather, there was not enough A/C to keep the large group of racers who attended this year comfortable, so we are going back to mid-October.
 
So we are going to go with Oct. 16-18.

Dan,
When you said Lake Charles, I had no idea what you were talking about.

But indeed, there is a decent size lake, but just tucked away where you really don't easily see it from the main street, that goes through this area, Oakwood.

You can see it on Baltimore, which maybe I've been on once.

I sure as s*** didn't know there was a beach, a mile, or 2, from the raceway.

That is the place.  We rented a nice home that is next to the lake.  Not quite walking distance to the track.  But close enough to smell the glue and tire rubber. LOL

You finished 3 laps behind the GTC-PRO winner, and 1 lap out of 2nd, in Can Am, so you did well, but it's great you're looking to do better.

Another minor thing for next years race, barring disaster, early next summer, when rebraiding the Donut, I plan to cut a 3" wedge out of it, to dish/bank it more.

Yes, I suppose most of us definitely can classify this year as a disaster.

Yea, we all have to watch out for that Howie guy! However, all great slot car racers test a lot and they know how to test. That's what makes them great. Like my buddy DZ in Florida.

 

Another big race in Chicago. Howie, am I going to have to pick you up at the airport like I did in 1968?
