I want to thank the following guys for their help with scraping the track last night, Don Austin, Bill Bedell, Jim Bersani, Vince Musolino and Gary Simons. The help is always appreciated.

I also want to mention that sometimes there has been some of the racers parking their rigs sideways on the spectator side of the track, please only do this when we have wet weather conditions unless you have permission.
Thanks and I'll see you on Sunday for the Affordable Carpet Street Shootout.

The next 3 weeks at ESTA should provide some very exciting racing action. Next week Aug. 16 the Pro Stick gang will make their final appearance of this season with their high revving gear jamming style of racing. On the 23rd the Jr. Dragster Challenge will be contested with $300 to win plus Jr. Wally's will be on the line for our young racers. The Girls Go Racing charity race will be run on this date as well with all the entry fee's being donated to D.R.A.W., the organization that helps injured racers and their families. We'll end the month with the rescheduled Affordable Carpet Street Shootout which will pay close to $1500 to win with no increase in the Street Money entry fee, a no miss race for any Street car competitor. We'll see everyone there.

Here is a recap from the Jr. Dragster Bracket Finals held this weekend. As I mentioned earlier Natalie won the Gambler’s race for the 7 – 12 year olds on Thursday pocketing a cool $500. Friday all the kids got their 2 time trials and then it was into the Race of Champions where Natalie was in the spotlight after earning the right to run in this race. The race started and was going right along but when it was Natalie’s turn to race there was some kind of PA. Voodoo going on making the starting line infrareds act up not allowing her to stage. When she would go to pre stage the bottom stage light would come on and flicker, the officials shut her off twice checked things over and after applying some shoe polish to her rims she was able to stage but at this point she was so rattled she was late at the tree and was defeated.
Then came Saturday and there’s no way to sugar coat it, we got trounced. A few .00X lights thrown at us and some very close red lights spelled doom for Team ESTA. The few highlights of the racing action was Danny Thorpe making it to the quarter finals in the 10-11 age group breaking out by only one thou. Running 8.939 on his 8.94 dial. Ron Klein Jr. lost in the second round and that’s all the points we ended up with, 3. The consolation was held for all the first round losers and Jenna Lipke and Abby Hacker both rebounded very nicely making it all the way to the semi’s. We were able to win the Team Spirit Award again and thanks to Colleen for making up the decorations and make the arrangements to get our Team shirts done. The track held a High Roller race after the actual event Sat. night and Natalie got some redemption making it to the semifinals.
While the results for the weekend could have been better the kids did the best they could do and I am proud to say represented ESTA‘s Jr. program very well. Thanks to the kids and their parents for all of their efforts. Here’s who went down to Numidia for Team ESTA: Natalie Musolino, Ron Klein Jr., Abby Hacker, Dunham Hall, Danny Thorpe, Jenna Lipke, Mackenzie Cayea, Jazymne Short and Hunter Hepner. Alexis Collins was on the roster but could not attend. We’ll see you next week at the track.

We have a time trial class that runs every Sunday if you cannot make this week's time trial day. The cost is $50 and it runs after Super Pro. You are more than welcome to do this as is anyone else that wishes to. We usually get 2 or 3 a week that do this and it blends into our program very well.

I have been asked over the past few weeks to consider changing the Super Pro class from 1/4 mile to 1/8 mile. I am willing to meet with the drivers at the track this Sunday morning before we get started to discuss this. If you want to have your opinions heard be in the staging lanes at 9:15 and we'll see what we can come up with.
