Practice Push Starts




Just one of the significant changes this year with the program was manditory practice push starts for anyone who had never done it before or anyone in a car they had not previously push started. This led to more "previews" for the fans.


The first car on the track period was Tom Hanna on Thursday.






On Friday, under the radar, Roger Lee fullfilled his beloved wife Juile's final wish by putting her ashes in the chute of his cacklecar. Julie was one of four souls that were put to rest over the weekend. The others were Pete Starrett, Chris Martin and Paul Ruiz.

Every year Dave West does practice start and burnout in his Beebe & Mulligan tribute car and gets better every time.
