Track Work Day on Saturday July 28, 2012

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

We will be having a track work day on Saturday, July 28, 2012.  Track work is planned to start at about noon.  As soon as track work is done, we will open the track for practice.  See you at the track.

Here are some things we would like to work on:

Move the timing loop closer to the first jump of the triple.  This will eliminate the hop when vehicles hit the loop, and it will make it easier for Travis to hook up the loop to the computer on race day.

Gary is planning to install a new tarp over the driver’s stand to provide some much needed shade.

The 4″pipes leading up to the table top will be removed and replaced with small dirt jumps.  The dirt jumps won’t flip cars as easily.

A couple boards need cut and some bumpers put on them.

Some work needs to be done in the raised corner section.

Various pot holes will be filled in with dirt.

Any weeds that have grown since the last race should be pulled.  If Justin has time mid-week, he could spray the weeds with RoundUp.

Have any other ideas for track work you would like to see done on Saturday?  Let us know in the forum.
