Oh I like that one a LOT...

You have 6 good marshall locations on the second one... spaced well with good coverage... and the track itself is technical but has some speed sections...

Thanks to Ike , Dave and Jeff [I think that was his name]for helping out today.. I think we got a lot done for 4 guys. If its not raining I'll be there 9-9:30 tomorrow. I'm gunna pick up the drainage pipe on the way in in the morning. We can start to lay out the CAT BOX so we know where the litter has to go.

If anyone wants to help, feel free to stop by. I'm, gunna come up with some way to compensate all that help. Maybe like free track time or something. So, bring a shovel, a rake, a skid steer or back hoe and we'll see you tomorrow. If its not raining.

Ryan... for some reason with this software it cuts the pics around 700 pixel wide... I would resize them for say 600 wide and then repost... let me know if you need any help with it...

Yup, there will be electric and a drivers stand. The wood for the drivers stand has been delivered. It will be 40"wide x 24'long x 3' high. I have a AMB scoring system that will handle personals. Hopefully we will be able to start racing by the end of May. It all depends on weather and help that I get. There is a group on facebook called "The Cat Box Raceway". Ask to join and keep up with progress and to find out when we're working or racing.
I was looking for away to compensate all my great volunteers and I think
I found away. For every day you work you get 2 days of either racing or practice for free. Plus a lunch at the work parties.
