As you look at this on this Monday morning trucks are hauling new clay on the 3/8’s at the “finest dirt track in the southeast” and the fall fling should make for some interesting scenarios.

Hopes are to have a couple chances to pound on the new surface before Labor Day weekend, but the new clay may still have a mind of its own for a couple shows before being “tamed”.

Other improvements that would like to be done before Winter Nationals in February such as frontage improvement for a easier sight for the eyes and rework on the front stretch wall , fencing and the armor metal replaced with a solid dirt banking behind the concrete.

All this depends on weather, time and scheduling but it will be a start to more improvements for 2021.

Had a blast Saturday night going up in the booth and announcing with Patrick LaPage our new “secret phenom” announcer who told us after his first gig a few weeks ago it was his first time ever announcing any event.

Patrick who has followed dirt racing for years and drove a center seat mod himself in the north has learned from listening to some of the best in the northeast and has styled himself to be close to these pro’s. He is by far a natural and we are proud to have him be a part of TEAM NFS.

Can’t wait to hear him and Eishelman together in February.

When the Pure Stocks have a big money, show its almost a guarantee it’s going to be a “barn burner” as Inverness, Florida's Karlin Ray #72 and St. Augustine's John Thorpe #114 had everyone almost peeing their pants by providing a side by side, slide job, battle to the checkers which brought a loud approval from the packed house in the stands.

Only thing missing was south Florida’s Tommy Hill who did his own “that’s entertainment” show in his #1H with Stark, Florida’s Racin Jason Garver #74 and was also joined by North , Florida’s Brian Hansford #2 until Brian had some issues in the Street Stock main.
Good to see J.J.'s and my friend Ronnie Chance in a mod again. brings back tons of memories.

The racing Saturday night was awesome from heats to features on a almost perfect track which had the fast guys banging the outside walls riding a near perfect cushion “waaay up”. Hopefully we can create even better with the new clay.

The day’s sun and heat was brutal Saturday as all of us on TEAM NFS battled it throughout the day and it was a relief to go up in the tower at night. Thanks, Don Wilson, for handling the box blade. His veteran racing knowledge helps make for a superb racetrack when he comes to Lake City.

As hot as it was enough can’t be said for the fan’s “true racer’s” who stayed in the stands and loudly supported the competition that night. You truly were the heroes on this night.

This will be a weekly column on Monday nights with a little twist with driver and fan news and things observed from the previous NFS event and news on ones to come.
We will have a few guests writing on some weeks whether fans or driver's.

If anyone has news about your race team, birthdays [racers or fans] or something you think of interest get with me, Patrick, Liz or Phil and we’ll jot them down for the next column.

We usually are at the track working on Tuesdays and Friday’s during the week and sometimes change up a little but I will post when we will be there and volunteer is the best way to support even if it’s weed eating or stick picking paper trash. It's all an important asset and any help is appreciated and makes it easier for us.

Let us know what talent you can volunteer to showcase to help us and we will start a contact list for info.

Till next Monday remember “Keep it twisted”.

When you do hundreds of pictures sometimes you overlook what you have. Looking again I found this one that got lost in the stack. I thought it was posted.
There you go Ry Ry Sowles.

We will post photos on this page each event.
I will take as many as I can in between doing other stuff so if your not in one event pics I'll try to get you in the next.
This is a courtesy being provided by us at NFS and you are welcome to these pics.
If you want me to make some 8X 10's or 4X6's get with me and i'll print them at costs.
We will be working on taking some driver pics holding a checkered flag next to your car for small 4X6's to be sold out of the souvenir stand and pins also down the road for fans and competitors.
Again I will be doing this when not busy with my other duties.
Remember I am old and slow and don't run away very well anymore so no senior abuse please.
Also i will be starting a column on Monday night's with the racing from the week before sharing driver and fan news.
i will post results on Sundays as I did today if home from the track.
