|Drivers Meeting Held Schedule Announced|
Over 100 people filled the I-35 Speedway Trackside Bar & Grill to attend the 2013 Drivers Meeting to register, catch up on the latest rule changes, and gather any new racing information. Track owner Mike Johnson started the meeting by welcoming and thanking everyone for their attendance and continued support. Mike talked about the changes completed to the racing surface in turns 1 & 2, changes that promise to enhance the already great competition. Mike encouraged all to keep a positive attitude and have fun this racing season. Also, Mike added that anyone can call and talk to him about any situation; as his phone number is on the website. Owners Mike and Kyle Johnson continue to work hard and make improvements; as they strive to make I-35 the best, fun, and family oriented race track in the country. In the scoring booth this year will be Karen Darling and Jamie Powell, with JD Green on the raceiver. Big additions this year are pit contacts: Brad Whitney and Randy Grimmet to assist with any situations that may arise with line ups and track questions. Tech will be handled primarily by Bobby Lopez with assistance from Jim Peeler as needed. Jim Peeler introduced a better helmet to prevent loss and damage to receivers (contact Jim for details). Jim also stated that all helmets this racing season must be SA 2005-2010. Anyone using a head and neck restraint must have a head rest on both sides of the seat and seat belts must be fastened to the main roll cage, not the tail section. Jim asked all drivers and crew members to assure safety features are correctly in place. Modified, Sport Modified, Street Stock, and Hobby Stock will all remain IMCA sanctioned for the 2013 season. All participants are urged to read the rules.
Please come and join us for an exciting season of “Dirt Track Racin’ At It’s Best”.
