Congratulations to all of todays winners and thank you to all the great sponsors for the door prizes.

Well it was another Fun but hot day at the track today with 63 cars hitting the track. Congrats to all the winners and thanks to everyone that made it out. It was great having 2 heats in the novice class with more new racers showing up today. With mother nature threatening rain yesterday and last night the track wasn’t the best the first round but we all stayed after it and it really came around nicely. Then there was the issue with the power outage but thanks to the generator that Donna didn’t need for the café today we were able to keep the program going.

We now take some time off due to my work schedule and to prepare for the KDOC on July 29th and 30th. We have some nice trophies and we hope to see you all for the race. The website will be updated soon with the full results and updated points. Once again thank you all for the support.

It was another Fun day of racing today. We had 73 cars take to a tough track that some rework after the first round turn into a good track. Congratulations to all the winners. It looks like the Smoked turkey and ham sandwiches were a hit, since there was none left for me to have for dinner. LOL We would like to thank you all for the continued support for the track and café. We continue the action with race #3 next Sunday 6/12/16.

What a great day to kick off the season. It was great to see everyone again. We had 65 cars take to the track and saw some great racing. Some of us need to do some car maintenance but that’s another story. Congratulations to all the winners. We had some new racers that saw us have a Novice class again and that’s what we need for our hobby to continue. A big welcome to all of you.

During the drivers meeting there were 2 tweaks to some rules made. The Sprint Car class is now 10.5 Blinky tires. Bandito tires on the rear are now a second tire option for the Street Stock and Limited Late Model classes. There will be no more changes done to the rules until the end of the season.

The next action at the track is Practice on 6/2/16 and racing resumes on 6/5/16. Thanks again for all the support.

What a great day at the track. The kids were Trick or Treating the pits and the racing on the track was a fun filled event. We had 68 entries today all vying for the coveted Tombstone trophies. The racing was great and most important at the end of the day everyone was smiling and talking about the surprises that were added to the Havoc 100. The Trailer race was a added bonus this year and it was entertaining for sure. We would like to thank Gary Offutt for doing some guest announcing. Gary will definitely bring a smile to everyone with his style of announcing. All in all it was just a great day. Donna and I would like to congratulate all the winners and our sponsors for the great door prizes. This will now close out our 2015 season. Thank you all for the continued support and we hope to see you all next season. The rules will be updated soon and the 2016 schedule will be made hopefully by the end of the year.
