Who cares if it's 240 miles from Minneapolis. I really think there are enough people around the Moorhead area or within a nice driving distance to make this thing work. Not everything that happens in Minnesota has to revolve around the twin cities.
I'm not shy. I'm just holding back my awesomeness so I don't intimidate you.

Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary… that’s what gets you.

Things are looking up. I have the last bit of info for the race poster. Once that is done it's off to the car shows, swap meets and parades this summer and come fall local bar's, gas stations, dealers and everywhere else to get the word out.

UPDATE...

I and another racer meet with BRRP this afternoon with great results. Here's a short list:

1.) There will be trophy's weekly and year end for Track High Pts.
2.) No Trophy round.
3.) Entry fee = Base price plus small fee per extra class.
4.) Target will be 5 lap heats & 7 lap finals. Bad ice could require the standard 3 & 3.
5.) Depending on sponsorship participation for dollars (13 local businesses have expressed interest) - year end cash for top three places.
6.) Professional announcer at each race.
7.) The goal is six dates; more shows if weather permits.
8.) BRRP would like a couple rule changes researched and considered by SLEDS.

Its looking like a great venue for us. The classes will be SLEDS rules. We'll keep you posted.

As always, pass the word!

CP does a great job announcing races!
