Thank you, after all of these years of hard work and self abuse. Yes I said self abuse. It is good to be recognized.

For those who fear that a rainout might spoil all the fun...not so. While others are occupied with the task of drying the track, one needs look no further than Gordon's pit. What better way to while away the time than a leisurely cruise on the twisty, rain-slicked back roads of rural Kentucky, in an overpowered '70 era hotrod with a large unhinged Pennsylvania yankee at the wheel? Get there early. Tickets will go fast.

I usually try to drive on the track and not on the guard rails. It seems to work better for me. Very Happy

Why can't we just have it like the bash used to be, all this heads up b.s., is just that, b.s., let everyone run the bracket race or, have a fast race and let whoever wants in let them in, whether it's a dragster, or door car, that deal last year was a pain in the butt, to much waiting around, j.m.o.

because some us could give 2 shits about bracket racing and dang sure not wanna drive across county for it. I know there is whole spirit of the deal............if thats the case just have everyone meet at the f'in park or something and have a g damn picnic...........

The lanes for the bracket claases in TN were thin last year.................just sayin.........


Coug, at least Nick shows up with a car that doesn't have the throttle or shifter linkage fall off before every pass.............. cheers Razz

I won the Q16 race last year,it was fun. But they ran it and the bracket race at the same time. I'd payed for the bracket race too,but didn't get to run it.I may have been able to if I was experiencing starter trouble Rolling Eyes But, I'd be more in favor of a Q16 race with 8 doorcars and 8 dragsters on a dial-in .That way everyone could compete and be competitive.Either way is ok as long as we have a race. cheers king

hey guys me and nick has been talking and its pretty well gonna be an open heads up race not an invite deal because alot of people that wanna run in that have sbf basically there is a rule or 2 is all no pro-mod cars or dragesters or pro-stock or anything in that area just so we cover our butts on that and we are gonna have it at a different time then the bracket race so there aint no interference and as far as las year i think nick did a good job we dont get paid for this stuff we do it on our free time so everyone be patient

Dan you have had very good luck racing at the bash... I wish we didn't have to drive 900+ miles to get there one way..... if it were 100 miles we would be there... you guys are lucky to always be so close to it....


Jon if I remember right we had to Help some guy parked to the right of us Change a starter cuz he was lost I think he drove some crappy looking dark gray mustang with 27 stages of No2 and always parked in the no Parking Zone!

while I commend you on making your 69 run quick after all these years, and your having fun with your 10sec "grudge" car....I can remeber when you were a pro advocate for bracket racing and always trying to win money all the time....so why now do have to be a dick to the guys that bracket race every week and want to come to the bash and hang and race. I would be willing to bet that the majority on this site are bracket racers....you or Nick (sorry Nick) havent done jack in small tire racing or big tire racing as far as that goes....best you muster up is battling through a field of Chevy's...again I commend you on any small time wins at your local track, but you really need to lighten up on some of these other guys that have a different perspective on racing

or your just joking...just saying

Like George said the heads up is going to be after the bracket race so it wont be cutting in to that time.Now you can enter in it if you basicly have a ford powered door car that isn't some kind of promod or such.We shouldn't be crunched for time at all, unlike before the regular program at the track is run on fri,so all day sat is ours.We need to quit bickering and just appreciate all the work it takes to put this together.It is supposed to be about having fun doing what we enjoy.

Coug you wont drive 3.5 hours down here to race so dont use the 900 mile excuse............you cant get off work anyway.


and again I'm not slamming the bracket guys, it was a lot of sarcasm.........but thats just how I roll


and hats off to you guys for putting this on, I'm not trying to bring any negativity to the deal........just make a few valid points to some stuff that was mentioned.

I can't blame anybody who's very far away for not attending this race as high as fuel prices are.But, I can't understand why some people want to try to discourage people from attending it if they're not coming? It's a great small track that is affordable enough for some of us to try to get a race for out little Ford Nation here to come and get together. This track is way ahead of Windy Hollow,and I think anyone who comes to this race will agree,and will enjoy their weekend. cheers drunken king

I just come to watch some great Ford powered cars.
In the opinion of a concerned spectator, Just make the heads-up race an "INDEX" race and you can then allow every kind of car as long as it meets the safety rules.

X 2 and thank you for your efforts George Exclamation I'd also like to thank Wes for his efforts. Very Happy

Some people may not know, or have lost sight of the fact that in the beginning a few years ago, we had some terrific 2 out of 3 match races between the two hard running, wheel standing black pick-up trucks of George Keown's and Wes Litteral's. Because of the trash talk, the furr was standing up on the back of their necks and both men were ready to fight. I had to play referee there in the pits for a while. Wes blew his engine, and when Gentleman Carl Keown offered to split the winners purse with Wes, it was a very kind act. Since then, the two families have become the best of friends and Wes and George sure have each others back, that's for sure.

Now then they are putting on a race at U.S. 60 Dragway in Hardinsburg, KY and are inviting all Ford lovers. There will be a class for you to race in, and maybe even two classes. So you have a choice, either come and race/spectate, or don't come. I'll be there, and I'm willing to help with the purse money. I know many of you are willing to help out also in some shape form or fashion. If you are not willing to pitch in and help then zip it! No need for the bitchers to just be bitching for the sake of bitching.
