I have been mulling over my decision to attend the July GRRR races at Fast Eddie’s for some time now. Yes, I want to go. And, yes, I am aware Ed takes great efforts to create a safe environment at the raceway, for which all can be grateful.

 

I have spent the last four-plus months limiting all my excursions into the general population for only necessities, and keeping these interactions to “minutes” of exposure. My work at TGH puts me in direct contact with COVID-19 patients, and in recent weeks the number of those contacts per shift has continued to increase; however, the hospital has had strict protocols and procedures in place for the safety of the patients and heathcare workers that must be followed. With all due consideration of my own and external circumstances, the former being to some extent within my control and the latter not, along with the significant increase of daily reported new cases in Florida through June to the present, until such time as there is a significant and definitive decrease in the number of new cases that falls below rates equal to or less than regional statistical values before the June outbreak of this epidemiological cluster-you-know-what, for the benefit of those patients I serve and my fellow healthcare workers, as well as spending “hours” among my slot car friends who I do not want to see become new “statistics”, I have come to the decision that I cannot in good conscience attend the races…

 

And that is that. Oh well. Let’s all try to stay safe, do all we can as individuals to help bring these numbers down, and hopefully circumstances will be better before the Southern Retro Rumble at Fast Eddie’s Raceway.

Very well-thought out decision.

Thanks for being a stand up guy. No surprise

Current point standing after three races.

This season anyone who who makes ever race in a class will lose their lowers finish in each class. This should tighten up the points chase because any one that missed an event or has a bad one won’t be penalized.

Time to start getting ready if you have not already started. I know all I have left is to break in a couple of motors.

Guys...the tracks have all been cleaned down last week and are ready for some thrashing this Saturday.

The raceway gets it's daily cleanings and sanitizing and we have plenty of hand sanitizer available. If you would like a remote driver station i can also offer that for anyone that would like to race that way. 

We look forward to seeing those who can make it and safe travels coming over.

Hey Ed, when you say cleaned last week, it was before the Wing races correct?
