Aug 242014

It was another Fun day at Checkered Flag today. We had 53 entries who braved the heat to race and celebrate Donna’s birthday today. Mother Nature couldn’t stop us with her 100+ heat index today. We were able to keep the moisture in the track and it stayed great all day.


Today we also welcomed Elmo Shirk our 2014 Inductee into the Kansas Dirt Slingers Hall of Fame. Elmo is a great asset to the club and has become a good friend to all. In talking to Elmo after the races he told me he figured he had driven approximately 18000 mile to race with us over the last 6 or 7 years. All we can say Elmo is were glad you decided to join us and you are truly deserving of this award.

We would like to congratulate all the winners of the races and our door prizes. We hope you all enjoy the holiday weekend next week and join us on Sept. 4th for Open Practice and on Sept. 7th for our Racing For Heroes Benefit Race. We have some very cool trophies for this race and all entry fee money will be donated to the VFW to help support Veterans in need of assistance.

Once again Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you at the track.

The 2014 KDOC is in the books and all I can say is what a FUN race it was. Donna and I would like to thank everyone that participated or just stopped by to watch this years event. With our support of local racers and a large contingent of traveling racers we had 138 entries. I would like to thank all the racers for their cooperation in allowing us to run the racing portion all on Saturday due to the severe weather forecast for Sunday. Everyone worked together and were ready when their race was up and it is greatly appreciated. We would like to congratulate all the winners and hope that everyone had a FUN time and hope you all come back and join us again.

A big thank you goes out to all that helped make this race a huge success. Josh and Gary for all the hours you spend helping, Pat and Clint for the announcing, Chris, Scott, CA and all the rest of the Dirt Slingers that helped me take care of the track. Jason for videoing the races , Chris K. and Nicole Lutz for taking pictures throughout practice and the racing. To Donna and Patty in the cafe, thank you for keeping us all fed. You both worked your butts off the days preceding and during the race and Fred for all the help every morning and night doing whatever we needed done. I’m sure there are folks that I left off and I apologize for it, but if you helped in anyway Thank You.
