Ran my first races last night and it was a total blast!
Took my track to the local bi-weekly get together with my hot rod and custom car friends at a local bar. Had a great turn out and lots of fun. I opened the track for about an hour for people to run the cars and see which they wanted to run. Each person was allowed to run 2 cars, I had planned on classes but just ran it all open for my first try...it was easier!
Ran 44 cars, best 2 out of 3 for each heat which was less that I thought would run, but still took awhile!
Learned about the weaknesses of my track and where I need to make changes and improvements...right lane was running faster all night! The final came down to a vintage 70's stock car and a vette roadster.
Here are some pics my friend Blake took...fun pics of the racers and cars but some shots of the track and crowd in there...we're a fun loving bunch!

Such a great time we're going to do it again in a month...now to find some seamless track and work on a better finish gate!
Thanks for this forum and your plans!
