Masks are mandated in that county for all public indoor activities.

It's not a better wear a mask issue when it's already a must wear a mask scenario. 😉

We've got a couple racers down here that do their best to create a pandemic at every race. Wearing a mask is probably for the best to avoid breathing in what they're blowing out.

When inhaling, a lot of raw air would bypass my mask on each side of my nose.  Also, when I exhaled, my glasses would fog up.

The piece of metal that's built into the mask is just too wimpy to work well, but a piece of 14 ga solid copper wire (has white insulation) solved the problems.

Thanks for sharing Dale! Yep, also using some anti fogging cleaner on the glasses helps with them too.

 

Alright guys.....10 days away now for the 3rd annual Southern Retro Rumble and we are looking forward on putting on this event for everyone with some of the best retro racers in the South.

We will have some sponsor giveaways and raffles going on throughout the weekend for all of the participants and some awesome plaques. T-shirts for this event will also be available on a first come first serve basis so let me know what size you want ahead of time if possible.

 

As Tony mentioned above, Pinellas County requires face masks to be worn in all establishments still at this time.

My wife and I do a good job at keeping the raceway sanitized throughout the day cleaning areas of contact and we have plenty of hand sanitizer at the raceway for customers use. 

 

If your looking for a place to stay the LaQuinta Hotel located at 7500 US Hwy 19 North in Pinellas Park is only like a mile away. There is also a Holiday Inn Express located at 2171 54th Ave North in St Petersburg. Both hotels are showing around $77.00 a night on there websites.

Monday 9/21 (5:00PM - 9:30PM)

Tuesday 9/22 Closed

Wednesday 9/23 (5:00PM - 9:30PM)
