Friday night racing – 1 July 2022

Yes it is racing again this Friday night for what we think is the last time before the Agfest move out (being confirmed now).

So gates open at 6, racing starts at 7. We had good numbers last race meet so let’s see how many people we can get there for our maybe last race meet.

I know I am keen to get my truck out again for an outlaw class outing, but time will tell if there is enough trucks.

So charge up your batteries, get your fresh tyres, dial in your suspension and let’s get racing!
