Post by aircooled » Sat Feb 09, 2019 2:09 pm

The Mid America Derby is fast approaching. Don’t miss out on the fastest racing in the country. Start making those travel plans or when you want to mail in those proxy cars. To win at the Daytona 500 is the ultimate for NASCAR. To win at the Mid America Derby is the ultimate for our hobby. Many try to win this could be the year for you to beat the best of the best. Looking forward to seeing you track side for the Mid America Derby/National!!!

aircooled,I tried writing to Gregg's email but it came back undeliverable. A couple of us would like to race in the "B" class truck but we would like the graphite to be a separate category. They could still race them together but if you sign up for "graphite" only then that would be the only award you would be entitled to. I know this is for Fun but we don't want to race against oil trucks.

I don't know how involved you are with the Mid America, but if you know how to contact Gregg I would appreciate the info. Thank you.

I don't know that they get enough big rig entries to be able to split into separate graphite and oil divisions.

They wouldn't need to split the divisions. The info would be in the computer. They could run them all together. They would not need to award some fancy trophy to the graphite division. A letter from Gregg would satisfy me. I think it might draw more trucks for the Class "B" division because it's a lot easier to run a 3 wheel rail rider in the Class "B" division and the racing would be lots more fair. If a graphite lubed truck wanted to run with the oil trucks it could do that. That truck would not be eligible for the award for the "Graphite Only" category.

I talked with Greg yesterday and it sounds like there are some cool changes coming to the Mid America race. Now that I have piqued your interest, I'll leave you hanging. I won't steal Greg's thunder and I'll let him tell y'all what's coming.

I do intend to be there at this year's race. Hopefully, I'll see some of you there.

I surely wish I could attend. That's got to be quite a party. I watch my neighbors house and they will not be back from Florida in April. Tell Gregg to move it into May. OK, I'm kidding.
