Well, the decision has been made finally.

Racin' and Rockin' VI is happening, July 16th at Springport Motor Speedway.

Long story short, it was a long process to make the decision, many, many things happening in my life, but here we go.

Details will follow in this thread, but it will be basically the same drill. The mod's are the Headliner, and we are looking at potentially a $900 to win, maybe more. Payout for all classes running will be posted here.

I sincerely apologize to all racers as to the time it has taken to make this a reality, suffice it to say life is never a straight road, but hopefully we all get where we are going.

Keep watching, as I will be posting more shortly.

have a good day,

Modifieds will have the add a lap qualifying, and the Sylvia May Ott Mod Fast Qualifier Purse is starting out at $50. (sign of the economic times)

There will of course be pig, other food, please bring your own dish to pass also, camping, porta johns for campers, the whole thing, including Mr. Big Ed Inloes, helping out the stellar Kyle on the mic for the event.

Trying to do what I can to get the purse for the mod feature up to $1,000. Right now, it is $900. Also trying to get some extra money for the rest of the classes also.

Don't be afraid to think of what you can come up with to make the event big and fun. After all, this is a party for the racers and the fans.

R&R VI, for the fans and racers, by the racers and the fans.

have a good day,

The show needs to get completed as quick as possible IMHO to get the fans down to the pits for the party.
I'd say 30 laps max for the Mods.

Try to start the party by 10 pm at the latest.

How 'bout a compromise, 40 laps for the mods?

Remember, the entire show starts one hour earlier than normal.

What do you all think?

Let me know,

have a good day,

Ok Matt, You wanted to get the purse to 1000.00, done deal, Row Z and I will each kick in 50.00 to make it happen.

Now if we can get some other racers and fans to add even 10.00 to the purse you can start breaking that down thru the rest of the field.

Come on all you racers who have been involved in R&R since the begining, lets show the newbies how we can all pull together to make R&R VI another success. We need to talk up this event and only have 16 days to do so.

Get up, Get up, Get up and lets GITTEEER Done.

Alright, thanks to the Governor, Dan Logan and good Sir Brian Roes, we have reached that milestone $1,000 to win for this mod spectacular.

Some real heavy hitters in the mod class have won this race in the past, make yourself one of the R&R winners.

There is more to come,

have a good day,

Sounding like Engine Machine Service & Walt Obrinski Excavating will be joining on as supporters of R&R VI.

I have also been in contact with Gary Howe of Kalamazoo Speedway and he may also show some support.

Shaggy Ammerman is also working on some support from some sponsors and friends.

Updates will be posted as they become finalized.

Anyone else out there have some good news to pass along.

This event needs support from all divisions not just Mods, so please see what you can do to help make R&R VI a huge success.

The Governor is very correct.

Any help is appreciated, R&R has always been a fun event, and a successful event, with real money to be won also.

More than anything else, it is a time to also relax and enjoy some racing, and enjoy the camaraderie of the racing family.

Have a few more surprises and people working behind the scenes also with me, so here it comes,

R&R VI, lives!

have a good day,

Another 50 headed R&R's way from LaPratt's Welding and Fabrication, and a large donation, details to come soon on this one, from one of our very own MSTRC'ers, suffice it to say, it is going to be a great help, and is intended for those other than the winners or top finishers.

Away we go,

have a good day,

Ok, so pig is ready to go, everything else is coming together and the purse is now at $1,050 to win, forty laps.

The Sylvia May Ott Mod Fast Qualifer Purse is starting at $100, with all "Add a Lap" Money going into that pot.

It is getting good and should be a great time.
