BUFFALO RIVER RACE PARK! BANKED OVAL RACING IN MINNESOTA!
« on: April 26, 2010, 06:08:53 PM »
I just heard that there will be 6! races at the Buffalo River Race Park next winter! BRRP has teamed up with the SLEDS circuit and will be doing some racing!

This is an awesome facility and I can't wait to race there!

Here are some pics of the joint that I took the other day!




Who is goin next year?

Greetings VintageSledders from SLEDS and BRRP,

My name is Randy Olson. I live in Glyndon and am currently helping SLEDS and BRRP launch the track in a big and sustainable way. I've had a couple conversations with local ROLA racers and am looking for more input. The goal is to have as many as 6 races with the possibility of season points, specials races, and maybe something under the lights.

What I'm looking for is input. I'll be meeting with the track and a few SLEDS racers to discuss the season points, sponsor, marketing, schedule, classes, rules and so forth. What are your thoughts? Any takers on a few regular dates at a home track of sorts?

Thank guys, I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Randy

Is that all? I have spoken to BRRP about that already with good reception. The featured SLEDS class will have 5 lap heats and 7 lar final with the last race a 10 lap final. So I'll bring that to the track and I'm betting that it'll be stongly considered. I am working very hard to help you vintage IFS guys with a season points sponsor. There are a bunch of IFS sno pro's wanting to run BRRP but if more laps and a little $$ is what it takes I'll do my best.

Thanks for the input Brent.

This is great news for the northern racers, I assume you would draw the Devils Lake/Minot guys? Any dates set up? SLEDS rules?
 And lastly is Schumme allowed in Clay county? ;D

Morning CruelPaul,

I'm excited for the track and us racers that want a home track and not one that's hours away. Saying nothing to the fact it's a high bank! We are looking at dates right now. When we lay out the proposed dates there's not much room that doesn't overlap with somebody. We'll do our best to respect Devils Lake and Strathcona and we can't compete with ORA, we want those teams. I'm hoping to meet with BRRP next week and schedule is at the top of the list.

Schumme is no longer allowing south of Hwy #2! All kidding aside, there's rumor he's done. It sure would be great for him to come out seeing as we're so close.

Did I mention that the track has a bar and it's heated?  d.r.i.n.k.

The plan is to plow very low and keep the corners wide.
