Makes sense to me Lou. At this point I am out on the Wilkesboro race and a hopeful maybe on Knoxville.

Lukus, if you are sick get right into treatment and get well buddy. We can all race another time.

I am OK either way. I will say if we reschedule to next year there is a possibility that I would go to Chryslers at Carlisle instead of the Wilkesboro race. I'd say 50/50 especially if there is likely to be a low turn out.

I agree with rescheduling the memorial race till next year maybe we could all attend then. As for my sickness I got my test results today and covid, flu, and strep were all negative but i am very sick. The bad news is now they really dont have any idea what it is. Fever has ranged from 100 to almost 103 for 4 days. It finally broke today but i have a low one again now. Had a bunch more test done today

Kay thinks it is a good idea to postpone the Memorial race for Ron.

Rob,
Thanks for speaking with Kay. I was planning to do that too. Good to know. Certainly we should postpone the memorial event then. I am thinking if we do the race it will be Covalts/Shanks plus 1-3 others.

If you are looking at 2021, Is there any way to get Ron's Memorial Race scheduled off the Chrysler Nationals @ Carlisle weekend?

I'd love to race in 2021, but have financial commitments at Carlisle.

Thanks!
John

We will try to avoid the Carlisle/Wilkesboro conflict next year. Generally, we have been able to avoid this overlap.

The Memorial Event should be at Wilkesboro, so that Kay Hamby can be there, and that was Ron's home track.

So are we cancelling the race all together? Or are we only cancelling the memorial part of it? As much as I’d love to come to the race in Wilkesboro if there are only Covalts and shanks planning to attend I’d rather not make the trip and race closer to home. It would seem better to reschedule a mason dixon race and try to get more attendance that way on a non Carlisle weekend. I’m open for whatever I’d just like to have a little time to plan.

Hi Ryan and all,

Thanks for weighing in. Based on the response here, we should cancel it.

Rob: would you mind calling the track and letting them know?

Rick:
Any progress with Mason-Dixon rescheduling?

All the best to the Slant 6 racers and we'll keep trying to make this work in 2020...

Lou

I sent a note to Elmer early this week and did not get a response. They are having a few events although with no spectators. Would you like me to try and see if we could go at the end of the year (early Oct.) as we have for the last few years? I would think by then we will either be in better shape or if there is another large spike in cases, everyone will be out of business. :( :(

I would suggest moving Wilkesboro out of the month of July altogether. Ron never like it being in July anyhow, because it was always 100 degrees! :D Plus we had no race in June scheduled, so it could work then.


I also will not be able to make Clay City. We are leaving that Saturday on our vacation.

Thanks, Rob and Rick. Sounds good on Oct M-D reschedule and letting Wilkesboro know we are not coming.

I will call some folks (Gary B, Mark C...) and let them know we are cancelling. I spoke w/Brian Mimken yesterday and told him.

Agreed on trying to move Wilkesboro from July if we can.

Lou

This is from Pat @ Wilkesboro Dragstrip. I told her we would schedule Ron’s Memorial race next year.

She said they are open and have had a lot of people there to race.
