Have they given you any idea of what they are expecting?

Pretty sure the gates open at 10 am. No idea on cost.

I think Uncle Tony has Dallas expecting 500 cars. I told him our normal turnout is 8-10 and our biggest ever was 37. He was shocked to say the least.

Somewhere on the board a flyer was posted. I'll dig around and see if I can find it.

I just bumped up the thread that flyer is in. Dallas is already reconsidering that many classes. I think we will end up with Points or No Points.

I plan on being there all weekend and am pushing it on Instagram. Seems like there is a few coming from the responses. I haven't seen much pushed on Facebook but not really on that anymore. Later

Just wondering how many people are attending this event with a Slant? I see UTG isn't saying much about it and they are the sponsors? 1100 miles one way for me.

I plan on going. I originally wasn't going to be able to get off work but now I can. I'm only about 2-1/2 hours from the track. Would have sucked to not be able to make it to one so close to home.

As with any new event attendance will be a crapshoot. Right now it looks like we can guarantee maybe 5 cars.

I have confirmed with Dallas that we can have a points/records class if we want.

Jeff Kendall posted on FB today he is planning on being there and setting records. :D

BTW: The #42 (Bill Kendall) is a tentative go. If that helps.

Nearly ready and looking forward to the event. Unfortunately the 42 has some issues that still need to be worked out, so Bill will be my pit crew.
