The Driver School finished $11001.50 in the red. The 1-1 training was valuable but lacked the “real race” experience since there were so few cars on the track at a time.
The National race should finish near $5500.00 in the black, bills are still pending.

The October race will have Richard Dunlap as Chief of Tech. A Sound person is needed.
