No Road Course Racing on February 5, 2012

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

We have cancelled the road course on this Sunday.  Most of the guys who normally race are planning to stay home and watch football instead of racing.

If anybody does want to come out and race, the oval racing will still be held.  They have offered to run some “roval” if anybody is interested.  Roval is just oval with some road dots laid down instead of using the full road course layout.  A “roval” class can be held in between normal oval classes if there is enough interest on Sunday.
