A giant THANK YOU to drag race participants!!!!
« on: August 13, 2018, 02:15:23 PM »
    Once again the staff of Infineon Raceway bestowed the "Easiest to deal with" title on SAAC for Friday's drag program participants. NO failures , oil downs , stupid moves , speeding on the return road etc. Even with out shortened time slot , I got the impression everyone had plenty of runs.  THANK YOU from myself to EVERYONE that made it work. Your advance preparation and RESPONSIBLE actions led to the unheard of "passengers OK" nod from manager Georgia Siepel. Yes the very same lady that chewed me out in our drivers meeting! She relaxed the rules after seeing how YOU all acted on the track.  Before I left ( mild case of heat stroke) I went to the tower to thank her and she said "I forgot how good your people are". "Not like my local knuckleheads".
    Great job to all participants.

Hey, Randy, Keystone Raceway is only 38 minutes from the Pittsburgh suburb world famous Monroeville Mall ( Where they filmed the great "Dawn of the Dead" movie)
Keystone is where TV Tommy Ivo "allegedly" ran the "first" 200
Want to try the drag racing thing again?

  That is a long tow from California! I am going to Norwalk Ohio on the 24th but I'm flying in. I saw the "area" where the track is from the tunrpike  many years ago when I was back visiting Bon Hanlon and some other customers. BEAUTIFUL country you have back there.

Norwalk is an awesome track, be sure to get the "pound of Ice Cream" for a $1, thats right its a pound of Ice Cream for only $1
Seats are great, track is beautiful, the bathrooms are so clean you would eat the Chili Burrito Hot Pepper and Cheese breakfast and not have to worry.
