We are very excited for the KHMR (Kristin Hanrahan Memorial Race) on July 20th. So far there is $1500 in prizes to win that day for the Clone Heavy and Sr. Supercan classes. We have made one adjustment to the race. Like we stated in our last post we have always run the track in reverse that weekend but we have decided to make it a STANDARD/DRAW race. We feel that this will encourage more racers to get involved in this event. Remember the races start at 2:00 that day.
6/23/13 : Kristin Hanranhan Memorial Race
For the past 7 years on the 3rd Saturday of July we have had a hog roast and the races run the track in reverse. This year we are changing it up a little. Instead of a hog roast we will be having our 1st race in memory of Kristin Hanrahan. She was a sweet girl that worked at the track for a few years and she was thought of like family, unfortunately she was taken from us to soon. In honor of Kristin on July 20th, 2013 we will continue to run the races in reverse with the addition of 2 classes, Clone Heavy and Sr. Supercan, racing for prizes. The track will supply the meat and we ask all that come to the track that day to bring a dish to share and stay and enjoy dinner with everyone. Mark your calendars the races start at 2:00 pm that day. If the races get rained out that Saturday we will hold them the races the following day, Sunday the 21st. Please spread the word to help us make this day a day we all remember Kristin and her love for the track.
6/21/13 : Kid Karts
We are wanting to get the word out to anyone that has a son or daughter that races in the Kid Kart class that we have 2 different classes for them to run in. We have a class for those that have a Comer 51 and we have a class for those that have a LO 206. The LO 206 is new to our track. We would love to see more of them. We follow WKA rules for this class. Feel free to contact us if there are any questions.
6/8/13 : Food Vendor
If anyone knows of anyone that would be interested in selling food at the track please give them our number, 563-659-8900. Our races are on Saturday evenings and we have 12 races left for the season.
5/9/13 : Practice at the Facility
Due to the change in structure at the track and the ending of the rental kart program, it is imperative that you call ahead to ensure someone is at the track to check you in. If you arrive to practice without calling ahead and there is not someone to check you in, you may end up not being able to enter the track.
