They don’t require masks at the raceway and have a lot of traffic. Just too early to not use them. Mike was good with having a race later in the year when things may be better.

Got to make the racers feel safe.

Or if you are afraid of masks stay home. Lol I hate them, with my allergies it’s hard to breath..

No reason not to be safe. We have guys already staying home even with masks. If Masks bring a couple of more guys out and help support the shops, never mind the older racers who are most susceptible to the Covina We will probably continue with them until something changes. Not knowing what to believe it’s better to opt for the safe side.

According to what Mike told me. He didnt say he didnt want masks in his store. He just said he isnt going to make them mandatory. Im not scared of a mask. I ware them where its mandatory. I just dont agree with changing the venue without a vote is the right thing to do.

Hey Brian:

Off topic but did you check out that WrightWay power supply for sale on eBay.  It's a nice little unit and will work for everything and it's the one I bring to the track as it's small enough to fit in your box.  If you don't want it I just might pick it up as it's a good deal.

Maybe that's why masks are required.;)

Is the off set for the braid still the same after the rebranding?

Went to try out some of the weird stuff I built during lockdown and was presently surprised. Track was in great condition and they did an awesome job on the rebraiding.

6 for practice today considering the short notice.

Danny, Jeff and Marcus look unbeatable for next weeks event.

Traction is good with track getting rubbered in nicely. Should be even better after the wing car racers run Tuesday.

And yes Grant is back for now.

Remember masks mandatory on race day.
