Ahh... I've pretty much been a Butler regular the past decade. I've seen mod races there that can make LeMans look like a sprint race.

At least Kokomo has an outside wall, for when you overshoot, you pay a price. That will reel the overzealous in quite quickly.

I'll try and report back, Rp. At best I'll get in a good looooong season ender.

The weather lookahead is thumbs up right now, too. Friday Night might be iffy.

I hope itís a great pair of shows. Sometimes car count jealousy takes on an ugly face.

Those Modified, Street Stock, and Hornet guys are working their butts off to compete, most of them with far, far less resources than their open wheel counterparts. Itís not my cup of tea, but that doesnít make it any less important or valid. You folks enjoy yourselves.

One night for sure.

At least they didn't cancel 2 weeks in advance due to rain in the forecast. There's that.

No jealousy, just the vivid memories of 75 to 80 mortifieds at Volusia during Speed Weeks and getting back to Daytona after the nightly marathon at 2 AM year after year.

Fridayís forecast looks grim. I hope itís wrong. Weíre still planning on heading down Saturday if our favorite race car driver on the world goes. Forecast for Saturday looks good but a little cool but nothing extreme. In spite of the fact my interest Saturday is modifieds, I agree with most, it sounds like a bittersweet experience with that many of them

For are crew the Kokomo Klash is one of the more fun races of the year. With the car counts being what they are you actually have time to work on your car or do repairs if needed. You can't go wrong with the race being at Kokomo. At least you know the track staff will give max effort.

I was hoping they would run Friday's show Sunday. Waynesfield and Anderson are both running Saturday. The stock car people have to make different plans that were only there Saturday.
