My question was really directed at the owner Matt. I was just wondering if they are running the class and if Jr was still going to be the track tech man or just for the 4 banger class.

I agree Matt. They had a good amount of cars but it was really a lop sided event most nights. It was REALLY obvious who was running a legal motor and wo wasn't. I hope the track does well again this year. I don't believe we will be fielding any cars there this year. I will come out and get your autograph soem time this year. With any luck the super's will take off and have a good car count. I think that if they went to Friday nights and did what you and I talked about as far as running opposite Altus there would be more cars from oklahoma show up. Time will tell for sure. Good luck this year buddy!!!!!
