Testing the waters for this. During the 2011 Nationals we had a Night at the Races. A number of vanners who said that they would be interested in going never showed up. I've got the green light to do it again at the 2013 Nats. I just want to make sure vanners are interested in doing it again. It's almost an hour drive both ways from the Nats grounds to National Trail Raceway. Good chance we'll have Blastro and Headstone there again. Good chance John Jackson will join us again.

If we make this happen during the 2013 Nats on the Wednesday night are you interested in attending ?

Here are the vanners and their vans during the 2011 event: http://www.vanning.com/showvans/events/2011Nationals/Nightattheraces/index.htm

Here's some shots from the 2011 Night at the Races.

IF we make it to the Nats, count us in. . . . well as a spectator any way. Stock V6 Astro not much of a racecar.

Just checked the 41st Nationals website and they have this penciled in for Wednesday July 10. I sent an email off to my contact at National Trail to see if they will still have the Wednesday night as an open race night like last year, so the wheels are in motion. Paying more attention to the dates now, it seems that the Columbus GoodGuys event will be the weekend before so we might be able to entice our friend John Jackson to join us again. Here's John Jackson's pictures from Night at the Races 2011

DITTO. I always seem to miss outings at the NATS. GF has always had something to do with that. But that is likely over, so count me in.
