Awesome job to Jerry and his staff. With the addition of an unscheduled 4.70 Class to his weekend, oil downs and a couple of crashes, he and his staff still managed to get it all in. Lots of spectators as well.

Friday was packed!

Saturday did go a little slow due to oil downs and 2 real bad roll-over crashes. One car was Chilly Willy, an original steel body '40 Willys out of Canada. The car ended up with the right front wheel completely broke off with a portion of the straight axle, the left rear wheel broke off with the center still attached to the axle, the right side of the roof flattened and the left side of the roof with a nasty buckle. To say the least, the car was pretty bad but should be repairable.



Sunday saw a lighter crowd but still had great racing with Jim Oddy winning in Double A Gas with his Junk Yard Dog.

Looks like the weather was nice from a former WNY resident.

I see Jim Zakia, Jim Oddy and the Rush Willys with the former oddy pwerplant now a Janis powerplant there.

Thanks

Awesome weekend there. Place was packed. Considering all the problems on track(oil downs, crashes) the program ran pretty smoothly and quick. Amazing job by the staff to run an event this size the way they did. The track surface was great as well. Great job Jerry and staff.

I was only there on Friday, had to work the weekend. But I needed to make a test pass before the TD race next week, so I went out. It was fun seeing them run and it looked like there was already a lot of cars and people there, even on Friday. Good to see the rest of the weekend was a success.

Weather is looking good for next weekend, I hope there are a lot of Top Dragster's. Not that I have much of a chance - I have never raced the car in it's current form, just tested.

Anyway, glad to know how the weekend went.
