Here's What's New......
Test - N - Tune update ... Like I was saying, "mutha-nature" made the weekend of test - n - tune a wash-out, LITERALLY! The condition of the track after all the rain that fell, made it impossible for any testing to happen. On Saturday, May 18th, the track was closed and no events took place. When Sunday, May 19th arrived, thoughts were that perhaps testing could take place, but after seeing the very wet track conditions, we called off test - n - tune at approximately 9:30am. I then rushed home to change our answering machine to let all know that it was cancelled, but by then some of the drivers were already on their way up to the track. Needless to say, when drivers and cars showed they were teched and were awarded 20 bonus points for passing tech first time through. We of course, felt it only fare to give others a chance to be awarded their 20 bonus points for passing tech first time through. So here is the new Test - N - Tune schedule. Tech will be from 10am until 3pm on Saturday, May 25th (Opening Day). From Noon until 3pm will be a test session (From Noon to 3pm you can take your cars onto the track surface to "test" it). Engines CANNOT start before Noon! EVERYONE on May 25th, who PASSES tech the FIRST TIME THROUGH, will be awarded their 20 bonus points. PLEASE make sure that you have registered your car at the pit gate and you will NOT be allowed on the track to test UNTIL you have passed tech inspection.
We all apologize for the confusion that occurred this past weekend, but hope you feel that we are being as fair as possible to all of our drivers and supporters. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we'll answer any and all questions posed. Thank You! And now I can finally start saying again, CYaSat!! Kathy
