don62

The car count has been improving each weekend, the sportsman and pure stock class has averaged about 6-8 cars a week, Hornets and Mods are still struggling for a full field. But there’s been good racing out there, we definetly need more cars in all the classes.

If i wasn’t so far away i would, 600 miles is a long commute to race.:cool008:
