Have a Safe Memorial Day Weekend
May 16, 2015
Well as we got the races underway it showed the only race wasn’t only going to be the one on the track but the one against Mother Nature. The heat race was proving to be another action pack night with a lot of action packed racing. But as the heat races were coming to an end and our hopes were we would get the whole night in Mother Nature said different and the skies opened up. Despite the tries of our track crew she just proved that she would be the one winning today. We would like to thank everyone that came out and can’t wait to see you on our next schedule race event on May 30, 2015 as we will be closed for this week and we hope you have a nice holiday. Fans you have two weeks to prepare your banners for our banner night on the 30th.
