Ill be there but only because its a points night for us. Should be a pretty good show if they get the track back together after the farmfest is was last weekend. BTW $20 for grandstands and $30 to get in the pits. BG Im not sure if Tommy will even be there I think he had surgery this spring and his new job has kept him from running regularly.

It will be a great show. It's always a good show in Slayton, but when the USMTS boys show up it ups the anti a bit.

I can't wait.

If Tommy isn't there that will be a drag. However, I can always root for my second guy.................GO JASON!!!!!

I'll be there. Never miss the USMTS at Slaytona, its a good show. Just wish I had a car to drive instead of just walking around the pits like a lost puppy dog. If you guys see me wandering aimlessly towards the track try to stop me before I get run over!!!

Boiler you on the fire truck tomorrow???

And I hope the #65 Sputz Engines hot rod of Tommy Myer will be there, but if not I will be pulling for the 7K home town boy and defending national champion.

PP, way to bring home the chrome!!!!

Good night of racing. It was a drag to see a lot of the local boys go out so early. Tommy did well at first and was holding his own in the 4 spot. A bad restart set him bac a ways, though.

Boiler, sorry I never made it in to see ya... 15b is fast, I'll give them that.

Wierd track last night, never dried but really slicked off, you could hear the two leaders in the stock cars down by the pits in 3-4 weren't even hardly on the gas which is odd for that class.

Mod race was real high on attrition but pretty good racing. Holy smokes was Donlinger fast! Tommy did come back to finish 5th but Al Hejna cost him a pile of spots with that HORRIBLE restart when Tommy was tucked right in behind.

Lots of blown motors last night, I don't think anybody jetted for the cold damp air...

We tried a few things in the heat race that didn't work out too well and changed a few more things for the feature ended up catching a break and capitalized on it. The car still isn't as good as it could be but we're getting closer.

I wasn't totally impressed with the big show but it turned out the way I thought it would. Everybody thought I was nuts when I picked 3D to win his heat race but quickly changed their mind when he passed for the lead on the second lap. The track was definitely tricky not tacky but not dry slick it was commonly described as "slimey" I really question the call to water at intermission but it was business as usual I know the touring guys weren't too happy but once the action got going it turned out pretty decent not the best I've ever seen though.

Lawdog are you in Slayton evey week? Stop in and introduce yourself sometime we pit right inside the gate you can't miss us if you come in the back.

BG It was nice to see your crews quick response when the #10 hobby tipped. Fire fighters are under appreciated for the work they do at the track.

pp, I've only been there three times this year and this is the first time I've been in the pits. I still have a hard time going in the pits without having a car, not that its a lot better in the stands, but I have free passes for up there so at least its $25 cheaper misery! I'll try to get over there some time...

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
