Sorry, I have been kindly advised that some folks won't go on Facebook for information. I posted the link as Steve Stupp had posted the announcement about ECTA  there, including his phone number: 812-305-0710
Go for it.

"Removed"?

That's an awkward term.

So I just signed up for the spring race at Blytheville, the cost is certainly higher. I hope this translates to good facilities and services at the track. I was always pleased with the treatment we got at Wilmington, enjoyed it a lot. I am hoping there will be overnight parking for cars and trailers on site. Now we hope for great weather.

At last count, I saw 83 vehicles registered.  2 of those are mine, but .... 2 weeks ago I had a timing chain to surrender while the bike was on the dyno at 11,500 RPM.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I have it back together before the event.

Hey - it kinda looks like I'll be there for the April race.  How 'bout that?  A guy from not too far away (Mike Segorski) is gonna run his doorslammer - and I'll ride down with him.  I have my request in to live stream the audio so youse all can hear it whether or not you're there.  Stay tuned for further details.

NOTE TO ALL BIKE RACERS:  I'll have my leathers with me but will need to borrow a helmet (hint, hint, hint!)
