OK gang, here is the schedule for this race. Parking Thursday 12 noon to 8 PM. We are in our "usual" spot along side the stage lanes, just a great place to be. Friday, racer gate open 7 AM, spectators 9 am. On track on Friday at 5PM. Saturday, 7 AM gate opens for racers, and on track at 9AM.
We don't know the run schedule yet, but be ready, change plugs today, not Saturday. We will update things here as necessary, get ready to have a blast!
Gang, Victory Pits will be along side the staging lanes toward hiway 55. Track tech inspection will open at 3PM on Friday. We will be making test hits on Friday.
Drivers meeting will be Saturday 9AM or later, depending on our test hit/qualifier runs. We hope to have this just prior to our qualifier, but that will have to be determined when we are on site.
Also, this year, due to some confusion at the tracks, we are going to call all runs prior to our final qualifier, time trial, or test hit, or test run. When we call them a qualifying run it has confused the tower and we want to alleviate that. We always have only one final qualifier that we set the ladder to so this is not new, just a change in terminology.
We are also going to have a get together after the race on Saturday evening You are encouraged to bring a dessert/snack/finger food to share. Just something small to share or what ever you think and we'll make a fun time of it. Plates and napkins and plastic forks will be provided. Bring a chair and we will have some talk.
Also, we have Victory shirts and hats for sale, $15 for hats, $15 for shirts up to XL. XX and XXX are $18.
As always, we will have to declare and post our index prior to the final qualifier on Saturday. Also, the Victory Rules committee will perform tech checks on all cars Friday and Saturday, and if we get a chance, maybe some on Thursday as well.
Its been a long winter, and a long time since we got to participate in this event. Hope to see you there.
Edit 5-3-22: Another change! Driver meeting Friday evening. Will declare indexes then. IF you show up only on Saturday, you'll have to declare before that one and only qualifying pass on Saturday (no test runs).
St. Louis race info. They have a test and tune Wednesday night you can sign up for, but you can't stay overnight. IF you check in Thursday before 8pm you can stay overnight. If not in by then, you will be stacked for Friday.
Also, just added, rain date of Sunday if we have problems Saturday!
Just in, Thursday check in will cost $25 to park your rig. This is not per person, it is for parking on Thursday. Track says this was always the case, just not published. We have no control over this. As such, I will see you Friday.
Edit 5-3-22 10 am Another change! Driver meeting Friday evening. Will declare indexes then. IF you show up only on Saturday, you'll have to declare before that one and only qualifying pass on Saturday (no test runs).

bosspete: As the new year approaches,,it would be really nice to see more of our cars lettered up to present that Nostalgic race look from years ago.I think that we have more fun and present a better nostalgic product than any other group I've ever seen in the past.

detroitman: 8 3/4" pig assembly must be 489 case with tapered pinion, need to have 4.88 or 5.13 ratio with a spool. Or ill buy just the gears.
