Race #1 is in the books.....

Race #1 is in the books, and by my estimation, was a great success. Thanks to all that came out to race and also to those who came to watch us race, despite the threat of rain. It was great to see some new faces at the track, and hopefully we will see a few more at the next race as well. We had 23 cars across three classes, which is very encouraging for me, and I think we will see even larger fields as the weather becomes more predictable.

IQSR has a very competitive club, and we enjoyed great racing across all the classes. I was particularly impressed with the Sprint Car guys, and to see them run the first two heats of the year caution free, and with 6 out of 8 cars running within 0.1 of a second of each other certainly was a great way to start the year! The Sportsman and Bush racing was as exciting as ever, and both series are going to be very tough this year. Keep your eye out for "Cookie's Race Recap" in the coming days. I have the points figured as well, and will have them posted very soon.

Thanks to everyone who helped get the track ready to race on Saturday, and also to those that helped in the booth and with tech inspection. A huge thank you to Kristie Strubbe for going to get the printer ink for me, you saved the day!! I think things ran fairly smooth for the first time out this year, and hopefully it only gets better. Congrats to the feature winners, Jerry Brawner in Sprint Cars, Todd Holloway in Sportsman, and Ron Strubbe in Bush, and thanks again to all the racers.
