Mid-week racing news…….
On a dirt note, spoke with a couple local hot shoe’s at the track this past Saturday night,
Gary MacPhearson, and Jeff Jones, both were at the track but without a car, both said it would be a week or more before they would be ready. Gary Mac said he had the parts just had to get time to get it all together. He said he got behind over the winter and not knowing for sure if and when NGS was going to open he wasn’t in a real big hurry to get it done but he is now ready to go and will be soon as he gets it ready.
Jeff Jones said it would be a couple weeks before he had the J28 ready to race and his new job was taking lots of his time so he would have to get after it..
Heather Taylor is getting her motor back together this week but she is not sure if she will have the car ready to race Saturday night, but said she may just show up to watch…She also wants to thank her many fans and friends for all they have done to help her get this new motor so she can be back racing, she sure made “Booger” Brooks look bad the other night as she had them all cove3red in her heat only to lose the motor coming through turns3 and 4….
…there are at least 4 more cars I know of who are getting ready but they want to keep it under wraps.

Last week at the races Tony Ray the announcer made the announcement that tickets would be $10.00 all year long, well that should have been for the regular show’s the upcoming SRRS show this Saturday night will be $15.00 for grandstands and $25.00 for the pit passes. He wants everyone to know just how sorry he is and hopes no one holds it against him, after all it was his first race at NGS and he is allowed to make a few mistakes, so if this was the only one he has made so far Kudo’s to him! He done a great job getting the fans involved this past week and he didn’t mess up to many names, (he even got the dr’s name right!) so a tip pf the hat to him for the great job he has done so far.
North Georgia Speedway now has a facebook page!
Stop by and become a fan!
I have been watching post all over the web this week in regards to the opening night race, and it sure seems everyone is tickled that NGS is back open with new management, yeah there have been some mistakes, but it was only the first race and things will improve as the tracks crew get into the swing of things, so lets cut them a wee bit of slack and let them get the kinks worked out, come on out and watch, and see for yourself how much better it has gotten, with more things to come!
