Yep, it'll be down to the wire for the Mason-Dixon Spring Race, but I will definitely be there for the Fairlawn Race with my 65 Belvedere I.

65 Valiant won't be ready. New motor for the 66 Valiant, same thing. Going to try and do a repair on last years engine. Should know in a couple of days, if it is possible to get done in time. If so I'll try to make it.

With the price of gas rising, I need to try and get the fuel mileage better, than 8.6 mpg. Boy, I sure miss my Toyota truck.

I invited an old racing buddy of mine. He has an early A body slant and is keenly interested in putting some runs on it.
Scott Smith is his name.

I am pretty certain I can talk him into it.

Sounds wonderful, Matt. Please encourage Scott to attend and race. He will see some stuff he has never seen before, I am pretty sure. I'll put him on the maybe list for now (see above post).

All the best!

Lou
