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...

PP, it can be a drag waiting around with 50 pounds of gear on, but we get in for free and we get some of the best seats in the house.

    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
