Got some great news today. Larry called and the grader is supposed to be at the rogersville location Tomorrow the 19th to build the track. We are looking to have a really nice smooth track a little banking. It should be fast and yet a drivers track. Most of all we think it will be a FUN track. This will be the first track in the general area permantely built for LMR. It is next to a campground and will actually have some camp sites next to the track. We have bleachers acquired alreay. And they will get moved in once the track is done. Then fencing will go up. We all owe this one to Larry and Jeannie and Elgin Auto repairs for their donations of time and money. I will be going down this weekend to check out the progress.

Thank you, I will make plans to be there, but I won't be able to make the meeting. I also have a few questions. I have a BP class mower, but the only thing is that I put a hood scoup on it. To keep the motor from over heating and getting to hot. Will this be a problem? and are there any annual membership fee's?

Without seeing the hood scoop hard to say!!! Won't turn you away at the test and tune anyhow thats where we initially look eveything over and let those with issue's know so they can get them took care of.Annual Fee's are $25.00. I will get the application up loaded in a bit so it can be got from this site. ;D

Yup we got some FX's. Jeannie the one driving my second BP has a nice one. I just got thru building the exhaust and adding the front brakes and tuning it a bit to the new cam they installed. You won't be alone. I hope to build me one this year also. My biggest problem is my work load!!! All day at work and then building my 07 bp and my son's and two others for customers plus the motor work and extra stuff hard to find time to get anything done for me!!! But sooner or later it will get done.  We also have several others with FX mowers so you for sure won't be alone. ALSO just got the word we will be having an ARMA NATIONAL POINTS race in Rogersville September or October. Havn't nailed the date down. So things are really looking good for our first season.
