Madison Indiana Race This Weekend

The race in Madison was set to start on Friday with testing and qualifying, however it appears that due to high water levels they may have to make it a Saturday / Sunday only event.

Detroit Fireworks Night at the Dodge Pits

While we were some distance away, the Detroit fireworks pot-luck gathering at Pit Tower was a big success!

The guesstimate I heard was 140 people, I'd say that's conservative. It was nice to see everyone in a casual setting outside of a volunteer meeting or at the races. Plans are to do it again in 2014.

MANY THANKS to Jim & Carol Verkennis, Jeffry White, Ray Dong, and everyone else who helped host this event!

Cleanup Days Continue

The next cleanup dates are July 8 & 9, then it is GO time!
