Just as an FYI.

It looks like they are expecting a larger crowd of racers this year at Clay City. They are changing up the layout where the swap meet and show cars park to allow more racer parking closest to the track.

As we get closer I will post more to keep everyone informed.

Bobby Rogers posted a photo of Rodney Hargis and Gary Bruner in the Winner's Circle from way back in the beginning (Facebook). Pretty cool stuff!

Good gravy…I remember driving down from Michigan to Clay City for the Slant-6 races 2.1 decades ago, all the way back in 1998! 'Course, back then the internet was coal-fired and hand-cranked, and we didn't have any fancypants "Google maps" or "Hey Siri" or Fecebook and whatnot. Now get the hell offa my lawn! »waves my cane«

I wanted to get to Clay City, but apparently my gaul bladder did not.
Had emergency surgery yesterday, in the hospital now, should be released tomorrow.
The gaul bladder has been excised from my body, so it no longer has any influence on me.
Concerning the aftermath, my Dr said no lifting, pushing, pulling for the next 3 to 4 weeks.
So the Barracuda will sit, have an engine installed, welded in subframe connectors just last Thursday, run the under hood wiring, install the seats and I could drive the car out of the garage.
That is now on hold.

Oh yeah!! :twisted: :twisted:

It doesn’t sound like too much more work...

I’d drive up to help ya, but I’ve got my hands full getting ready for my grudge match with Isaiah at Knoxville in the Duster and getting the Challenger ready for its Clay City debut.
