May sounds a lot better than April. Don't want to be driving in snow or salt.
The harvest event is always good.

Two weeks can make a big difference that time of year if we can get them...

Confirmed this morning.

2016 Season dates. Times are subjective to weather, participant readiness, staffing, etc. As always we will start and end days based on how many people we have ready/left to run. As many of you know it is not uncommon to run until sunset some days.

May 6-8th with racing starting at noon on the 6th through 4pm on the 8th

July 13-17th with the 13th being tech only. Racing at noon on the 14th through 4pm on the 17th.

Sept 2-4th, racing at noon on the 2nd through 4pm on the 4th.

Also note if we get more than 80 registered for the Harvest (Sept.) event we will add an additional day of racing.

Now, get back to work on those race vehicles. Only 155 days until racing!

Once again I encourage everybody to make the trip to Loring. It is the best pavement track anywhere!! Tons of shutdown/stopping room. And it is the best run. I am going to try and make all three meets and it is a 5,000 mile round trip.
