There's a lot of racers pre registered already for September as of today over 120. With the lack of salt to race on looks like lots of racers are heading to Wilmington. First timers will get to enjoy how nice the Wilmington mile is.  An added bonus is how the community appreciates everyone visiting their town.
Were planing on running the stuff we built for our maiden salt flats runs might as well use the stuff since the salts not looking good for the future without a lot of help from all of us.

There is another bonus to Wilmington....., after you get home you don't have to spend the next month cleaning salt or El Mirage dust off your race and tow equipment.

I was late in booking my room for the September meet and as an FYI, hotels are filling up. I normally stay at the Holiday Inn Express but it and the Hampton Inn are already full. I did manage to get a room a the Wilmington Inn so all is good.

We are staying at the Hampton WC too and had a jacuzzi tub while there at the 1/2 mile meet. Free upgrade according to the Wife. Not sure if we are getting Jacuzzi this time time but wouldn't object to it !

Got a room at the HI out on the freeway, everything in town was booked.  Just hope there isn't a dog show this time, those were some stinky dogs in June.

Just registered and count is now 144 entries.  Confirmed my room at Wilmington Inn.  There is a cat show on the 26th and golden retriever show the next few days so expect some fur in your Jacuzzi!

I registered two and possibly four bikes, guess I need to talk to Tanya to see if I screwed it up - Dodge online registrations.  Where do they show the number of entries?

 The site has recently changed for registering for the September meet. I was unable to find the number of entries on the new site.

Yep, Looks like they may have had to change companies.  Not sure what happens on the 2nd page of the new form but guessing it won't include count from AXWARE system they used before.  Email is your best bet to verify count.

If there is a spot open I would like to register for Sept. Now my car is finally ready and Bonneville was canceled. I did get a patch and a membership card so that's better than nothing
