The Torres Family and Smith Family will be with us while the Bledsoe Family, who lost little Aisylin to her cancer will be at another fundraising event, not for them selves but they have started a 501C3 Foundation to help those families dealing with Neuroblastoma cancer and to raise money for research. It is called “Aisy’s Angels”. We wish them the best as they use their loss and grief to help others.
We are expecting Tommy Hopkins and his family, Lacy Pate and her family, Joey Sciacca and family and Keith Purvis and his father. It will be great to see them and to get caught up.

As you prepare to come to the event, I would simply ask you to search in your own heart what you can do to help, how much you may be able to give in the helmet collection, donation jars and other opportunities. There are programs for $3, T-shirts for $10, raffles and more to help raise money. We hope you will come have a great time and understand our mission in helping thee families.

Looking forward to it Rick. Andy and I will be there with my Strictly Stock for Friday’s race, and subsequent pig out. It looks like the weather is going to be great too!

Please explain

Please Boney, Im NOT trying to start trouble. It was always my understanding after you raced a Certain # of years or won a certain amount you had to move up in class. Or if you had prior driver experience, strictly being entry level. Or is someone else driving “your strictly stock”? Just courious.

There was a rule when the class started that kept experienced drivers out, but that rule was dropped a few years ago.

My friend Andy had been driving this car at OSW this year, but he had a work commitment on Friday, so I’m running it tomorrow.
