Another idear brought up was a change in qualifying for the sprints.....their first 'heat' would be two or three lap individual runs for time, setting the starting line up for the second heat which would actually be a four minute race and the results of that heat would set the starting grid for the main.

Thoughts?

I wondered the same thing-i used to race at petaluma and the starts we're always one of my favorite parts of the race.Would be pretty cool.

About what a great race it was! After attending the Petaluma dirt track races I was thinking that maybe we could start the sprints with a pace car and rolling start? Have we ever tried that?

That last race was so fun under the lights. VTA was a blast maybe we'll get to see David and Gordon battle it out this next race. See all You GP members tomorrow night at 7:30pm at round table pizza across from Coddingtown.

LOL That last post was Blake on my account!

We had a great time on Saturday!  After 26 years of being in this hobby, I FINALLY got to race sprint cars!  This was pretty much a bucket list item for me!  Can't wait for the next race!

Gordan, next time your racing budget is cut, just bring your VTA. I'll cover the fee, because you owe me one good race.

Oh, yes. Three snaps of the fingers up. Saturday was a fun day of racing, except I left my fleese coat at home that day so I had to improvise with a Walmart yellow hoody with California across the from. At least I was warm for the 8 minute SLASH Bash. I had fun and hope everyone did as well. See ya all next month.

Gordon.

No, Johnny, THANK YOU!!!! and Darren and any other vets reading this.

Thanks also to everyone who helped make the evening a success, especially Gordon, running the mike all night since he couldn't race. Selfless member there!

Fortunately the generator ran great for the last several hours when the lights were all on. I had to return the boxes and cables this morning and made sure that we get the Hondas from now on. The guy from the rental shop came out after hours and returned later in the evening. He now understands why we can't have one that won't run reliably.

Lots of outta town faces, great to see a couple from long ago, and I appreciate everyone cleaning up their pits afterward.

I believe the next race is Sunday, August 5th at the Water Agency and Nitro Sedan is the featured class with a 24 minute race!
