I love seeing the series, Mike. Cool cars and great racing. I'm going to check with M Carr and see if my car fits the rules. I'd like to run May 12 and the nostalgia weekend.

Awesome Chuck, the more the merrier (and the bigger the purse!).

Hopefully racers see this class as an additional option on the days it's offered, and not just an alternative to another program. Because Mike utilizes a ladder during eliminations, he is super flexible with working with racers who are also entered in other classes on the same day. I've raced in modified, Tri State, and Buds Auto all on the same day before, and never had an issue with being rushed beyond what I considered normal.

I'll be in Top and Mod, so May 13 would be too abusive for my taste. But on the 12th, I'm definitely interested, and could still double in the box/no box combo if I wanted.

Abusive is a good word, it was rough. But, reason I mentioned that was because I know I've talked to people in the past that didn't feel doing multiple classes was an option, or were worried about being rushed.

Buds Auto gets a great turnout of cars that can easily cross over and do both, so I always encourage it.

Keystone Raceway Park They are kept separate, but it is all one class, one payout, one bye per round. Our run order is no box double cars, no box, box door car double entries, box door cars, open body double entry, open body. If there is an odd number of no box, the last no box car runs the first box door car. If an odd number of box door cars, the last box door car runs the first open body box car.

quartermilemadnessman (George?) this is the flyer for the April and September races. The June and August races are the same, except the Friday night race will be for points for KRP points members, and there will be juniors on those Saturdays. I don't have a pit parking form in front of me, but I did hear that the front and second rows on the left lane side are all reserved. Email the track or send a message a message to their FB page.

Fellow bracket racers, I want to take Bud's classes (see the link below, and check out the pages). I have 4 racers and me committed to it, and need 1 more. Class costs $550. Bud McNasby is extremely well known, in all types of racing, and is a stand up guy. There would be a lot of details to work out, but my hope would we'd be able to work something out with KRP for an April weekend, prior to points and the full season schedule of everyone's events. Ohio, NY, MD, you guys might be interested in this too. Please check out his page and website. Bud is on DRR, botmbulb.

From Bud onb my FB thread:
Thank you all for your interest in the school. I just wanted to give a little more information about how I try to set up an at-track class. Typically I like to do 3 days at the track with the student's own vehicles (with a certain amount of classroom time each day). If 3 track days aren't possible, 2 track days and a classroom day will work just fine. As Chuck mentioned, I would need 5 or more people in addition to him to bring a school to PRP. This would be a Level 1 Package, and includes Level 2 Reaction Time, Level 1 Finish Line, and Level 1 Consistency/Prediction courses, as well as 3 years of tech support. The cost is $550 per person. Also, I have multiple instructors to ensure that everyone gets the personal attention they deserve. My goal is to make each and every student the best racer they can be. If anyone has ANY questions at all, PLEASE don't hesitate to ask!
