At our Board meeting last evening it was decided to leave the schedule as it is printed due to the late notification of an attempt to make up the rain dates. Saturday 8/30/14 oval racing/open practice will take place and the track will be CLOSED on Sunday 8/31/14.
On Saturday 9/6/14 oval racing/open practice with practice running in reverse and Sunday 9/7/14 sprint racing running in reverse as well as our 3rd WKA Divisional. For those participating in the WKA Divisional Western NY Sprint Series our 4th and final race will be a rain out make up which is scheduled for Sunday 9/14/14.
In recent weeks I have been extremely busy in my both racing life and my non racing life, and feel a need to bring the membership up to speed with some important information
Most importantly, we will be having a board meeting after racing on Sunday August 24, 2014. The agenda will include the following items for discussion.
1) Updating and corrections of our online scoring. I will do my best to work with Terry and get this updated/corrected.
2) Scheduling and coordinating of our year end banquet.
3) Preparing for election of 2015 Board members.
4) Rescheduling of the Greg Morse Memorial Race.
5) Facebook page and some help with this from Mrs. Coon.
6) Making up of the two current rain out days.
7) Promotional ideas for this fall.
8) Track/Building maintenance.
These are the current items on the agenda and I am sure that there will be more added. If there is anything that the membership wishes to have us discuss, please feel free to contact me.
Well the weather did not seem like it was going to cooperate Sunday, but the gloom gave way to a beautiful afternoon and some great racing! Unfortunately, there was not a large turnout for the Greg Morse Memorial Money Race so we have postponed that until August 3rd so you taggers be ready! The Yamaha Money Race pushed on though, congratulations to everyone who participated and to Don Foley for his victory!

I have noticed recently that there are some errors in our posted schedule on our web site. I would like to set the record straight. This weekend we will host the Vintage weekend. Next correction is we will have oval and sprint racing both on Sunday with the sprint racing running in reverse. The last correction is there is NOT a WKA divisional race this weekend. Our next WKA divisional race is scheduled for August 3rd.
We did not have enough entries this past weekend for the Greg Morse Memorial Race and I want to apologize to his family that came to our track to see this event. On the brighter side of this I am happy to announce that we will try again to host this race in his memory on August 3rd, 2014. All tag racers please hold this date and come to GVKC to honor Greg and his family.
