Thanks Kyle. The Region is doing what they can to make it better. They just spent a fair sum to modify the single scale they had to make it into a drive on scale so that the driver can stay in the car. Also, we hope, this will help with having to not push the car over that drain hump that always stops the cars. Doesn't sound like much but it was always a pain for all.

With the private test day, I figure we will not get into track to set up until after 5PM. Maybe we can figure out a way to handle any annuals you may need out in the holding area. That way, everyone can get through express tech and not have to come to the tech building to get decal. As long as I can see the car, I don't mind crawling around in trailers. Make sure you keep your logbooks where you can get to them and if it's your first race for 2018, we'll need to check gear and give you decal for helmet. Again, we can do this so you can go thru express tech.

I know these are little things but anything will help.


Jim that is really good news I think the car I am bringing needs and annual although I'm not completely sure. I have always found the tech at ATL to be very easy to work with. I think you may want to set up a little area so everyone knows where to find you guys to get an annual before parking.

some years the june sprints is only one race for our class!  its funny jim doesnt complain that its a big waste of money, not to mention the 500$+ 2 session test day is the biggest rip off going...  

 

I think you go race where you want to go race and what fits your schedule.  therfore Im going to ATL majors.  it will end up being an enjoyable weekend IMo

"Jim" likes to go to what he considers the best tracks and race the best competition.  Road Atlanta has filled those requirements for me in spades.  It has always been and will always be one of my favorites, if not my outright favorite track.  Last years race had half the normal front runners as years past for whatever reason. This years schedule likely won't help that. My goal is to make the event what it once was  and always had been, not to criticize. I realize this is a thankless job. The June Sprints is also the second biggest race of the year. 

 

 The scheduling and the way this event has been run the last few years IMO has diminished the attendance and the competition. BTW, I appreciate all that Jim does for our class and the region( he does FAR more than most know). However, I sent an email to "higher ups' in the Atlanta region about this situation and apparently my email was not worthy of even a response. Perhaps that is part of the problem when you don't even bother to respond to long term customers when they email you. 

 

I am still undecided on whether I am going, I will likely go.

We love the track and we love the competition in the spring, last year didn't work out because they had so many races on back to back weekends we just couldn't afford the time.  Last year I think it was NOLA and Road Atlanta Majors back to back weekends.

Jim, the current "power" of Atlanta Region has only been RE for 6 weeks and had very little to do with the decisions for the 2108 Majors race. I gave an answer to your concerns based on my last 5 years on the Region BOD.

 

I believe that there is a chance that the Region may return to the Super Tour status is 2019 provided that NOLA does not back right up to us again like last year. After all, Atlanta is in the SEDiv and is a SEDiv Conference race while NOLA is in SWDiv and only has dual conference status in an effort to help their entry. I don't believe it's right to step all over a traditional date especially if it's a same conference race. We want to see NOLA do well but not at our expense. NO Region anywhere would be happy with that.

 

We are pretty locked in at Atlanta on dates with Road Atlanta and have very little, if no wiggle room. And we had absolutely no say in the cancellation of the test day. It will make it hard on us also. We have no day light to get in and set up tech, T & S, etc.

 

As soon as I find out where we can set up for annuals and 2018 gear checks, I let everyone know. At least we can get as many as possible through tech before you go inside.

Yes, Road Atlanta bites, and bites hard. I personally love the track, but I have had intimate contact with pretty much every wall on that track over the past 10 years. It demands respect!

Congratulations Michael and Danny on the wins. Both guys have had a very impressive start to the season! I tuned in late today, not sure what happened to Jonathan, he was in the mix all day yesterday as well. Nice runs by lots of guys.. Congrats to Jonathan and Preston as well for the podium finishes. Wish I could have made it, I miss that place.
 
Anyone care to comment on how the changes in the track came into play if at all?
 
 
BTW... there are three or four of us that plan on putting an end to Michael's streak at Hallet :)

Thought after a fun weekend...  First Creighton and crew made getting an annual outside the track a breeze, needed two annuals and moments later had them in had and they handed us a tech sticker in the trailer so we didn't have to go back to the line!  Great job and it was a very well run event from the parking to keeping us on schedule all week!  

 

Congrats to Michael, Danny, Blake, Jonathon!  All had great runs but I think Danny had one of the best showings chasing down Michael with no help to get another big WIN!

 

Great to see smiling Mike Rossini he was smiling as usual and well before any of his drivers showed off!  Thanks for making a special stop at my trailer to say hi! Friendships are what this thing is about just as much as the racing!

 

The region needed to have a test day, first sessions were on wet track and for me I didn't have time to see that my car was way to tight for a dry track.  Started p5 on Sat and dropped like a rock!  Sunday started p13 and finished p7 pushing my buddy Adam around, he is still figuring out ATL so he got me passed a couple times going into t3, but we always found a way to get back together and were catching the p4-5 guys... Multiple passes were thrown in almost every lap between myself, Henderson, Jones,Roberts!  It was very hard but clean racing with all of us ending with big smiles and thumbs up!

 

I may even have to post a vid of the battles, not much for posting vid but this one may give some  mid packers a glimps of what clean hard fought racing is supposed to look like and not the traditional dive bombs and bump and runs that I hear about all the time.  I think had I been committed to Henderson rather then Adam we would have caught p4-5, but that was not the plan for the day, trying to work out team work with Adam was the goal and I think it was pretty successful although maybe not the outright speed factor.

 

It seemed like a condensed schedule so I didn't get to talk to as many guys as usual, but I did meet my new SM HERO Robert McDaniels who drove his #16 to the track with two sets of wheels on a little dolly behind the car, set up camp just up the hill from us and proceeded to racing his first majors!  This the grass roots that the class used to be, and I thought it was the coolest thing i had ever seen someone drive their car over for a majors race and just go have fun! Hats off to you man!
