How are the rest of you all doing in this class? In Great Falls Montana, it snowed out practice and the first two nights. I have always said, "this is probably the only state where we have to build our cars with a engine block heater for the first month" Anyone getting the season going?

Our first weekend rained out. The second week we had sprints on dirt there and hobby stocks were given the night off. Not to mention that we have blown out the rear end every single race we have run. Hope it gets better soon.

Our 1st night,4/20, here in Denver was called due to bad weather.

uforacing51, My Dad is racing in Billings this year. He came down to help me at the end of last year and the bug Bit him. So now he is getting back into a racecar after 37 years. Him and my Brother are going to take turns driving.

BGA, I know the feeling. Our 1st night was rain/snowed out, the 2nd night I was out of state and the 3rd night I hit the wall in both the Heat and the Main.

Looks like our season may get underway finally on friday and as a bonus because of the snow, saturday too. The weather looks like it will hold thru the weekend.

Finally got the season started, and the car wouldn't answer the bell for the heat (dead battery) got that fixed (short) and went out for the main, started 8th and was in 4th when a competitor rammed me, the flat kept me from getting out before the green came out. race ended without me.

This is not getting any better. Hit that stupid wall in the same spot again this week. Keep this up and the track is going to make me come out and repaint the wall during the week. Gonna try again this Saturday, then have a week off.
