The ‘Paint the 1/4 Pink’ ladies are in their second round of qualifying.

So we will be anxious today to see how the first round of Pro qualifying shakes out. We have posted Friday Photos to our Facebook page and testing videos to our YouTube Channel. We will be back with more updates in a bit.


Friday 5pmIt’s Friday and the pits are already full of racers. Testing has been going all day and will continue until 11pm tonight.
