I’d like to say a special thanks to all those that showed up early to assist with the setup and for those who stayed the extra time for help with tear down. We truly appreciate each and everyone of you.
Big shout out to Kelly and Tessa, 210 races went down the track and you two did another outstanding job on the computer keeping dragtrac updated! Great job by to Annalisa and Haylee for helping run TNT!!!
To our officials that kept the race going with quick repairs to the track when needed you guys had it back up and running up within 30 to 45 seconds just about every time the blocks were hit. The staging lanes stayed full and flowing as we raced through our 111 car field.
We look forward to seeing everyone in just a few weeks at test and tune (May 14) and then for race number 4- “The US Military Memorial Day Nationals” presented by the Dees Racing Team- May 28!
