Post subject: Clay City 2018 - Racer's Reunion!!! (Wed Sep 20, 2017 5:34 pm) Reply with quote

It's not too early to start planning. Especially if we're going to be successful in getting some key people to attend... Wink

I'm confident that Team Green will be ready to take on all comers, so I can count on them.

I just got off the phone with Howard Davis and promised to pester him regularly for the next 12 months. Twisted Evil He was okay with that and said he might show up if there wasn't a Junior Dragster race that weekend. His granddaughter will be racing The Hillside Six in 2018. Very Happy

Howard once again mentioned his desire to take on Barry Harrison to settle the score on a bet from many years ago, so let's pester Barry again too.

Will Burns might be willing to make that trip if we can get enough other Fast Four cars to show up.

Ron Hamby may be tempted to play with a little nitrous again. He told me at Clay City this year that he's tired of winning so many championships and he's ready to give up some consistency to run some big numbers. Just kidding Ron. It fits with the story I'm painting, so just go along with it. Wink

Seymour is working with Ryan to get the blue Valiant running again.

Dennis has Mike's Buzzin' Half Dozen car and has been wanting to come to Clay City for years. His new job will make it possible to get away too. Very Happy

I'm sure Tom & Leighton Drake are lurking and would love to show up with the Simca and/or Rampage.

Charles Myers wants to get back into Slant 6 racing now that Charles Jr. Has gotten all grown up and moved.

Norm Foster finally laid down the law with that punk kid that bought his Challenger 6 years ago. He told him if he didn't get that car running in 2018 he was going to take it back and do it himself. So I suppose that needs to be another 11 second car added to the roster. Rolling Eyes

It won't be fast and it won't be purdy, but Cookie just might have the Little Red Piggy there too.

I'm just putting this out there. I'm going to be somewhat of a pest (shut up Cookie!) over the next year trying to get people to show up at Clay City for a Racer's Reunion.

I would really appreciate everyone's help in making calls and convincing people to show up in 2018.

More (much more) to follow... Very Happy

Sounds like a great scheme, Rob!! I'd say between 15 and 20, which would be great. I could maybe potentially possibly bring two cars. It was a wonderful weekend this year.

Blue car is in my garage as is the new motor. Not sure that it can debut at Mason Dixon this year but it will be ready to rumble in 2018 for sure!

I'd love to make Clay City but I will have to see what the finances are like a little closer to the time. Could you drag it 3 hours closer to me??

Good to hear Lou and Rick. I'm putting you on the list!

You have a year to save up, get ready and recruit a second driver. I'm going to start saving up for an extra purse.

I'm going to list an optimistic roster right up front and do my best to keep from removing folks over the next year. Everyone please help me add potential racers and keep me honest on estimated ETs.

Even though this will be a points race, the main intent is to have fun, re-connect with old friends and run some big numbers.

Roll Call:

1. Greg Ondayko in Ruster (7.30/11.90)
2. Ryan Covalt in the Blue Valiant (7.30/11.50)
3. Lou Madsen in the 68 Turbo Dart (12.70)
4. Lou Madsen's Project V (_____/_____)
5. Rick Covalt in Project 65 Valiant (8.50/13.20)
6. Rob Simmons in the Challenger (7.30/11.50)

12. Norm Foster in the Blue Dart (7.90/12.70) and Challenger (7.30/11.50)

37. Gary Bruner in El Desperado (_____/_____)

I looked at folks who have raced at Clay City, Wilkesboro, Farmington, Bristol, Knoxville, Crossville... And added some folks I hope WE can convince to show up.

I would appreciate some help with fleshing out the roster as well as starting a list of folks we can get to come just to hang out and catch up with old friends.

1. Meril Bruner
2. Leighton Drake
3. Tom Drake - He won't be able NOT to race... He'll come up with something...
4. Mike Jeffrey
5. Pete McNichols
6. Charles Myers
7. ....

If you're reading this I'm counting on YOU to help spread the word and make Clay City 2018 the Ultimate Racer's Reunion!!

Rob,

This sounds wonderful, and I applaud your excitement and organization! Planning now is the right idea. I wonder if we might even attract one or a few West Coasters too?

Lou

I am hoping to have the blue car together for CC next year, and I was thinking about asking Mike to come with anyway. We'll see how things progress. Shocked

I will plan on being there. Also spoke to Steve and Steven Adams, and they are willing. As an added bonus Spoke to Chuck (armyofchuckness) Ellis. He is up for bringing his 64 Valiant. Also Kevin (1974duster kev) and he thinks he could make it, with his turbo Duster. That is 5 cars if it all works out. Almost an 800 mile haul. Lets see if we can get some more "long haulers".
