November 4th Newsletter

  Hi Everyone,

Well I hope you all had a fun Halloween, and that you made it through the night with no tricks. And just a reminder to all of you that we "fall back" on Saturday night Nov 6th, and our days will be shorter. I'd like to start out with a couple of "save-the-date" events. First I'd like to thank Jeremy Timmins for bring to my attention his event Auto Barrel Racing, it's a new form of racing that was created by professional stuntmen and uses many of the same techniques and skills that you see in car chases on TV and in the movies. They are holding an event on Sat Nov 20th at Hollywood Park, 1050 S Prairie Ave, Inglewood 90301, gates open at 5pm, with practice from 6pm - 8pm and qualifying begins at 8pm.
