Well lets start with the approval of the dirt project came through last week so very excited to see PAL step up and financially get behind that project. Couple weeks get that all cleaned up and slang the soiltac again and enjoy that fast surface that we all love. The other nice little thing was that the gate will also be coming soon hoping to have it all coincide at the same time and that would be awesome. Some think the gate is a key thing and I definitely dont agree but I know some people want it and will be excited so I too will share in that hype. Our track is #1 still and we have moved to #8 in the entire country which is pretty awesome the numbers are STRONG and I have a few things to keep pushing and trying to keep numbers around 100 a night. Very excited and the promotions wont be stopping anytime soon. This will be the year that the local track definitely becomes a factor again :) And last but never least page 82 in the new race magazine featured yours truly just explaining coaching stuff at the local level. Its not my first magazine feature or photo but it def is on the race side so it will be a little special but ultimately hearing the kids say they saw me in there makes me feel good and hopefully they see a goal perhaps that keep working hard and they can make it too. Thats all for now off to run races tonight so I can have Easter Sunday off

Well the ball is now rolling on yet another thing that just warms my soul to get started on. Haha. After an actual rain season the first one in several years the time is now upon us to address the track surface. All things considered the previous stint of soiltac held up extremely well and we were definitely back up and running after heavy rains in quick time. Got a decent quote to get a couple hundred yards of dirt sifted and screened in the next week or so maybe? Then line up the army of helpers and frost the track with a sweet fine layer of surface, dirt pack it in then soiltac it all again and everyones favorite... Stripe the lines! In all seriousness the surface like many tracks right now is pretty beat and with the good numbers we have enjoyed its bout time to get ahead of track maintenance. Pretty excited at how things are aligning and happy to say we as a track are a couple hundred points ahead in the track standings and looking to push that further if possible. We have alot of programming going well and the numbers and promotions have people stoked. Sure we aint pleasing everyone, but largely we are doing more than ever before and thats a trend you oughta get behind. Very excited as the jersey series was 25+ motos and some back end stuff is trending in the right direction so cant be happier but as always never satisfied either. Water conservation grant to pave the turns? Long shot but looks very possible and sent to the powers that be for consideration...
