Well gang....we are close. I personally am working hard on the Madson cars. The plan is to invade Alb New Mexico to start the season off. I know we have some new interest and some seasoned racers getting ready. Lets began the stir! Who's in for the trip and party?

I have heard we may have some local club support and a potential Friday night car show and shine to warm up the weekend. The other point of discussion is the membership for points participation. $50.00 per driver for the points. I will take those early or at the track as we qualify and race. I would prefer we all sign up before the cars even move to the lanes.

Lets hear whats going on! Thumbs Up

Hows the MSVWRA group looking for New Mexico. Three weeks away. I personally am working hard to get the cars in the trailer. I am looking to fire up both in the next few days. Hows it going out there?

Hey Eric. Glad to hear you are getting ready. I got my car all back together and went out to test last Saturday. They have made a lot of improvements to the track this year. New concrete and more paved area. Everything went well. No broken parts. Had a good time running the V8 guys, especially a new Mustang Shelby. We are still rounding up sponsors and trying to get things together for the race. Looks like there will be good participation from the local clubs this year. How many of the MSVWRA are coming down? It will good to see all of our racing friends again.

A lot of the racers have stayed at the track. There is a TNT on Friday and the track manager said we could stay there no problem. The track also has some local motels that give racer rates. They start at $65 a night. Check the track site http://www.abqdragway.com/ for details. Call me at 505 228-6790 if you need more information. Ernie

I went out to the track on Saturday too. Like Ernie said, the track management have made lots of improvements over the winter. The end of the track is still rough. We seem to have a lot more interest this year from the local and regional VW crowd. I'm not sure how many will show up and race but there will definately be more spectators. We are hearing that there will be some people coming from Texas too.

I plan to be there. My car is ready? Or at least it's in the trailer waiting for some test runs. (The weather in Colorado Springs/Denver area is not my friend.)
I do hope to get a couple or three runs in somewhere before heading to NM. but I plan on being at the track Friday night (3rd) test runs or not.

I still need to put some new clearance lights on the trailer, as well as clean out the mess and re-pack, re-stock for the new season, but I am looking forward to seeing you all at the track.

That is some nice work. Thank you for your communication and actions. I hope we can meet expectations..LOL.

I have the truck, trailer, Derricks buggy and a few tasks away from a Ghia being complete for the trip.

Two orange cars are fired and ready to make a trip south. I hope others are getting close for the opening MSVWRA event.
