    Ok everyone. Just wanted to give everyone enough notice for our event again next year. Mark your calendars and make sure you get the time off of work. Next years event will be better than the first. We will be setting up a facebook page again for next years event and will invite everyone again. We have added Thursday night to this years event to make it worth the drive for everyone. So, you will be racing Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Details will be coming later. Thanks

    Are the stands open and spectators allowed? What if I want to go to the swap meet or go and watch the racing?

    Right now you would just come in and tell them at the gate you are a crew member on one of the cars. There is a conference from our Governor on Wednesday and it will involve outside events and spectators, so there is a possibility that the no spectator order would be lifted before our event.
    I will post up any changes before the event.

    Hey Denny, any updates? It looks like the OH website states outdoor functions are OK, just practice 6-ft distancing and wearing a mask is not mandatory but recommended. I will be there....unless something happens.

    My GF saw something last night that said June 17th the track will allow spectators. As you said, they will have to follow certain rules and if you don't comply they will eject you. We just booked a room.

    We are good to go. Spectators are permitted back at Quaker June 17th so we are all good to go with our event. No facemask are required, some employees will have them on. They are asking that you park trailers 6 feet apart (which most people do anyway to park their car) and also they will be using every other staging lane instead of the ones right next to each other.
