Hi all, well the 2nd Madera event is in the books with the vintage guys, car count was a little low, however things worked out OK.

We had a 8 lap heat and a 10 lap main the guys put on a real good exhibition for the fans. The weather was good all day, just a little windy. The car count goes up and down for different reason all the time, not everyone can make all of the events. Remember guys this is your club and if you don’t support it, things can change. They go to a lot of trouble to get these events and we have to make them work. Car counts are important, so if possible we’ll be looking forward to seeing you at our next event at Ukiah on May the 20th, good job guys and thank you.
