Club News Update

Our summer race season is quickly coming to a close. Its hard to believe we only have two more race weekends to complete the summer series. Unfortunately due to the paving project earlier in the spring, we have filled every possible weekend with racing we could. Because of this, we will not be making up the two weekends that were rain outs. Instead, we will be adjusting the points and only considering a drivers 10 best finishes for the season (currently best of 12). I am aware that the points are not up to date on the website. We are having trouble with the database and the way the numbers displaying the tables. I have just been very busy the last few weeks and unable to work it. We still have all the points accounted for and I will try to have this fixed soon. Future Reverse Dates Our next reverse race is scheduled for 9/7. This means that Saturday practice on 9/6 will be conducted in reverse only. Because of mixed emotions concerning races in reverse, the last scheduled reverse race on October 12th has been changed and will run in our normal direction. Greg Morse Memorial Money Race Rescheduled This money race was completed on August 8th for those that run Yamaha, but we didnt have a large enough turnout of Tag racers. We have tentatively rescheduled this event for TAGs only on October 12th. Check back for more information soon. Our next money race, The Alan Decker Memorial Money Race, will take place on September 21st. More info on this event will be posted in the next few days. 2015 Board of Director Elections Here we go again…As you know, there have been many changes to our Board of Directors this season.

A Sad Announcement…

It is with great sadness that I am announcing the passing of long time member Greg Morse. I was informed that Greg passed away unexpectedly Saturday evening at his home. Greg,  Shane, and Barb have been fixtures within the club for as long as I can remember- well into the 1990s. Please keep Greg’s family in your thoughts and prayers as they struggle through this difficult time. I have not heard about any of the arrangements and suggest keeping an eye on the local news papers for details.   Here’s a picture of Greg and Shane at the track on a hot summer day in 2011. Godspeed...
