 Thanks to everyone that came out for the weekend events. We wish the weather could have been a bit warmer! We still plan to be back in 2011, but maybe move to September. What do you think?

The Dyno Day had 9 participants and everyone that attended had a good time. The folks at RPM Performance did a great job and they even gave each one a video of their run and also posted them on their website for everyone to see.

Sunday started out clear, but gave way to clouds and that wind machine that wouldn't stop blowing! Around 25 racers and 37 show cars showed up for the event. Maybe the weather kept the rest away? We hope that in the future, if the date is moved we can get more of you out to enjoy the event. Do you have any comments or suggestions as to what we can improve on for the event? If so, please let us know by using the contact info button on top of the page. We welcome all comments good or bad!

The racing started on a bad note, as local Howard Flippen almost flipped down track. He had some oil coming from his valve covers and his tires got some oil on them and there he went, but thanks to his all fiberglass body, he was ok and the car only suffered minor damages. See the race results page for a complete list of winners and times.

The show area was on the lite side this go around and Karl Wood came out on top with his 57 Beetle. Many nice VWs out there such as Vince Powers 65 Ghia and Darryl Allen's 66 Deluxe Bus. Check out the results below and photo link above.

As in years past, we have had the Vintage Street Challenge, but this year we only had 3 that wanted to participate. We certainly appreciate Kurt Mezger for coming down to run this portion of the event, but with a low turnout, Kurt decided to give each participant $75 just for their support. Special thanks go to Ann & Kurt Mezger of Vintage Performance in Delaware for their continued support over the years with this class. We will be looking to still continue the event, but may move it to a different event.

We would like to thank you all for coming out and supporting the event. Without your support these events can't happen!
