Who's interested in going to the CVAR races at Eagles Canyon? There's a few of us getting together to watch the races, and check out the new track. We're going on Dec 1st, if anyone else wants to go let us know.
Yesterday (Saturday), the Member Weekend events were cancelled via email due to weather. As far as I know, the members were to "break-in" the racing line for CVAR. I am sure several will go out there this week and lay down some rubber, but for the most part, CVAR will be running their "test weekend" on a brand spanking new track-- and all of the uncertainties it brings.
I will see you guys out there on Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon.
BTW:Randy, I came up with a 67 coupe that I will be setting up for track days. I will not need to go dual-purpose in the Shelby! Woo-Hoo! Now all the pseudo-race stuff will go on to a purpose-built project. Give me two or three years...
On Friday afternoon, I was walking to my deer stand, and I heard something. It took me a couple of minutes before I realized that I was hearing race cars at the Eagles Canyon. I was about 8 miles east of the track, and the east wind made it pretty easy too hear.
That was at 1:00 pm, but the loudest racing started at 3:30. I don't remember when they quit.
On Saturday morning, I hit my deer stand at 6:30. It was 38 degrees and no precipitation. By 7:30, it was sleeting. By 9:00 it was sleet and snow. I took a break at 11:30, and it was still sleet and rain. I returned to the stand at 1:00, and it was 35 degrees with rain/sleet. About 2:00, I hear something, and it is racecars. I thought I was hardcore for hunting in that mess, but there were definitely some hardcore racers at the track. They ran for about 30 minutes, then quit.
