2013 Race #1 Results, points, and lap times are posted

Race #1 of the 2013 season is in the books.  We had 37 cars for the season opener, with racers traveling from as far away as New Jersey to race at the Madhouse.  We truly have one of the premier racing clubs in this country, and I am proud to be a part of IQSR.

Matt Hilber took the wins in the Sportsman and Super Late Model races.  Jeremy Brawner took home the checkers in the Sprint Car race, and Gregg Grahn takes the season opener in the Bush Class.  Congrats to all the winners.  I don't have photos of the winners this week.

I will send out an email update on the situation with the Park as soon as I have more information.

I want to send out a big thank you to Cookie and Tina for taking over the booth for me this year.  It is a big responsibility, and I really appreciate them doing this for me and for the club.

Our next scheduled race is May 11th.  Bring mom out to the track and celebrate mothers day with us at the Mini-Madhouse!

Track Clean up tomorrow is cancelled

Since we are basically down to painting, and it is not going to be warm enough to paint tomorrow until early afternoon at best (if at all), we are going to postpone the second clean up day to a later date.  Hopefully the weather will be kinder next weekend, and we can get some racing in.  I am sure there are a few of you that will be glad to get back to some grip.

Please let anyone you know that may not see this or the email I am sending out.

See ya next weekend.

Track Clean up

Howdy racers,

The season is upon us, and the first activity at the track is scheduled for this weekend.  I was out there a couple weekends ago, and have come up with a list of things that we should try and address:

1.  Paint the drivers stand.
2.  Linseed oil on the stairs and floor of the drivers stand, as well as the handicapped stand.
3.  Replace several broken sections of walls.
4.  Paint the walls.
5.  Repaint the lines on the track.
6.  Clean up, weed, and mulch around the bleachers and scoring shack.

As you can see, it is going to be a busy couple of weekends to complete all of that, and I am sure we will find some other things that need addressed as well.  With that said, we could use all the help we can get.  I know there is a race over at BMI this weekend, and that some of you are heading over, but if not, please come out and help get our track ready for the season.  It may be a little chilly to paint this Saturday, but we will also have another clean up day on April 20th, so hopefully we can get some decent painting weather one of those two days.

I am planning on being at the track at 10 am on Saturday, I hope to see all of you there.
