Hi Folks,

I am in negotiations with Motormile Dragway in Fairlawn, VA to have a 2-day race there June 16-17, to fill out our schedule. They are excited and my contact just needs to check with another manager and we can iron out details. I should know for sure by the end of this week. There is Friday t'n't as well. Fingers crossed...

Great little 1/8th mile track, camping and showers, 25 min from my house. I can host several/many people at our house and we can have some fun here even besides the racing!

The track was packed last night, so that is great. Folks got a kick out of Project V. Ran 8.80s/8.90s at 77 MPH, so that's nice. Car feels good.

Best,
Lou

Just to be sure, it is Saturday and Sunday? I know several of us were hoping for a Friday / Saturday race.

Thanks for all your work Lou.

It is Saturday June 16 and Sunday June 17. They preferred that. We can ask about future race formats during/after the race.

Best,
Lou

I think it is fine for now - It replaced a Sat / Sunday that was 2 hours further drive for us PA boys.

We can revisit it to see what we like.
Wilkesboro as well as Knoxville will be a Friday / Sat event.
