    Weatherman Relay reluctantly not at the Mint 400

    Sharlene and I were ready to go and looking forward to our continuing support of the Mint 400 Race. We were invited, as usual by Mad Media; however, our effort was blocked by Casey's allegiance to his new sponsor. Had we more than two days advance notice, we could have prepared the Yellow...

    Mag 7 pits

    Mag 7 pits? I have e-mailed the president twice and the race director with no reply! Are they pitting? Anyone know where? I always draw up an asset chart by mileage to make it easier to locate a rider or driver within a 50 to 60 mile window, rather than use checkpoints which are too spread...
