Summer's almost over with. Time to set up for fall and winter. We have already sent out a schedule to our e-mail list. Tthis is the first i've had time to put it in here.
SPECIAL RULES MEETING AND AWARDS FOR SUMMER PAVED OVAL RACING
Our summer paved oval series ends on Saturdayt 13, 2014. Awards for the series will be handed out on Saturday September 20th, 2014. Also on the same date we invite any interested racer to attend a special rules meeting. The awards will be handed out at 6PM. After getting pictures we will hold the rules meeting. Also there will be free practice on the carpet oval from noon on until we give out the awards. Also we will be setting out some light refreshmenrts. Everyone is welcome. although I don't see changes in some of our established classes, there is always things that have to be decided. I have been receiving information from some other tracks on what they are doing and also have the (for now) updated TOUR rules. We are always open to suggestions; some of the things we do today were suggested by our drivers.
Saturday September 27th, 2014--No racing at Marshall's on this date. The shop will be open usual hours (10 AM-5PM) and the track will be open for practice at that time. We charge $3.00 for anyone to practice and you can stay as long as you like. It's hard for us to believe how many folks try to "beat us" out of the $3.00 practice fee.
2014 FALL CARPET SERIES
Marshall's R/C Raceway's 2014 Fall Carpet Series will start on Saturday October 4, 2014. The first two weeks will be "shakedown" races; no points; a points series will begin on Saturday October 18, 2014 and end on Saturday December 27, 2014. Racing gets underway at 5 PM.

Free food both days, soda on tap, door prizes, plus drawing for the driver's point fund at noon on Sunday. Driver must be present to win. There will be more about this as it draws closer
NEW YEAR'S EVE RACE AND GET TOGETHER
For many years Marshall's has run a race on New Year's eve. This year will be no different. The race is on December 31, 2014 and is more of a gathering or get together than a race. Dot and I are not usual party goers. We do think of our racers as our extended family. We have a short race program at about 7 PM and after that we put out some eats for everyone. At 11 PM we start our Pigeon Roost Enduro which is now up to 750 laps. Lots of fun and the winners have bragging rights for a year. More on this later.
