Update: I wanted to thank Jim Langer for adding a bonus of $111 to the leader of lap 11 of the ELM in honor of his late son Josh Langer. This means the winner of the ELM could win $5,228 if they also lead lap 4 (Slade Family Racing bonus of $100) and this bonus on lap 11. Lots of money up for grabs this Saturday, hope to see you there! Weather is looking great for once!!!!!

If I was an amateur stock I definitely would stay home because chances are you're not going to get to run as curfew will set in and be screwed once again like every year you read.

Very nice layout for your race events in good work. In my opinion you cannot have all these divisions running. 2 or 3 total divisions is plenty for this long night. Yeah I know it's a back gate track and they like to pad their pockets on big events that others put on.

The only reason they are starting at 1130 (conservative estimate) is we will be giving them heat races and not features only due to their support of that class. If we did features only theyd run around 830. And we need to get the Dobs NQ Race in first since many of those guys could be traveling hours to race and have no chance of a make up.

And remember- curfew is the last feature has to be on the track by 11:59 pm. It will be all good.
