We Need to fix that huh??
I wouldn't say nobody...as we had some success!!
I would like for this event to Grow some tho..Sticking with the Baton Rouge, LA event has payed off and it continues to grow.
Hope that Michigan can do at least as well..Tho there is Plenty of Competition for "weekend Biker events" around. And Money is Precious here.

LMK [PM/Email/Phone] how to get you some Hand Bills!!! If you can help distribute them...

And...Thanks in Advance...

I'll be ready Marty .......... Zeke just sold the sporty last week  :down: ......... But If I have time I may get around to having the yellow Shovel bike ready for some pass's? Maybe Zekes can just run one of my bikes?

Also have another bike going ......... another buddy you have meet before  :smiled:

And looks like a lot of people going to watch and camp with us as well! .......... I will bring the pudding shots again!  :teeth: So it will be a good time!

Anyone thinking of going just know its a blast! ........ And if your looking to run a great number US131 dragway (Martin) is one of the best track in the USA so you just may run some good numbers!
