I would like to thank all of the MSKC members that helped with the RT66 race this weekend. I received many compliments on our team work today! Even with kart retrieval and any other on track delays you guys remained ahead of schedule. I think that is great because that schedule it very tight.

I also have to thank Tracie for all of her efforts to help at home and with the cookout Saturday night.

The next race is the backwards race. The track Barriers are set for the Race if you Wish to practice it in reverse. Just as A normal practice session/day be considerate of others and Alternate if you are wishing to practice in the other direction and do not take up/waste time on the track if others are waiting. Just as you would with A kid kart on track or waiting to go on track. Alternate. (FYI if you did not know.When a kid kart is on track, NO ADULT CLASS KART is allowed on the track at the same time. If A kid kart is on the grid waiting for An adult to come in...DO NOT BUTT IN FRONT OF THEM.
