On October 2nd we closed out our 13th season here at Checkered Flag with our Season Championship/Halloween Havoc combo race. The day was full of great racing and Fun and laughter.
Thank you to all that helped out all season long. John and Elmo with track prep, Pat, Clint, Chris, Scott and Nikki helping run the races, car inspections and taking pictures, Donna, Pat and Fred for keeping us all fed on race days and my sister for maintaining the website. To all the other club members we definitely showed that we are not only a club but a team that will do what we have to do to make the track the best we can and put on great race program.
The day started with the running of our season championship that saw great racing all day long. We then moved on to the ever popular Havoc 100 where we saw some first time and veteran racers wondering what we had in store for the race this year. All we can say is wow. We hope you all had fun. Congratulations to all the days winners.
We also crowned our Season Champions for 2016 with many of the points races coming down to the final A Mains and we congratulate all of them. Congratulations to Cody Pierce, this years Jim Rupard Rising Star Award winner. Cody’s racing improved greatly this season and more importantly he continues to learn and have fun doing it.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors and hope you support them whenever possible. Without them we wouldn’t have the prizes to share with you racers.
As we wrap this up we want to thank all of you that have supported the track and club over the years. We’re not going to name anyone because we know we’ll forget someone. So if you have helped out in any way or raced here we thank you.
This all started as a dream 13 years ago and we never thought it would grow like it has. Thank you all once again. It brings us great joy to see everyone having Fun. We encourage everyone to support all of the tracks in the area so we can keep our hobby strong. Just remember to have FUN. If everyone gets 1 new racer into our hobby, it will go on forever.
Once again we thank you for your support and we hope to see you next year for our 2017 season.
Tim and Donna
