Well folks, it's been a long time in coming but we are finally able to accept online entries for the WMR/FWR Cheap Points Double National to be held at Grattan Raceway from 5/29 to 5/31. As your entry form creator, I've put us in Group 4 so we'll be done before lunch on Monday. And we don't run with SRFs.

We invite all of our CenDiv and MidDiv friends to come on over and play. We're only 180 miles from the IL/IN border. After looking at your schedules, our event fits in nicely. If you haven't raced here before, you will be in for a treat. WMR is known for treating drivers and workers very well and this event will be no exception. This is a fabulous track (half of it has been repaved) and we'll have the great Grattan dinners on both Saturday and Sunday nights. There will be a track sponsored test day on Friday (5/28).

Register online at wmr-scca.motorsportreg.com. We're trying to make this as inexpensive as possible and holdingh down costs where we can. Our entry fee for both races is only $450. So, please, either mail a check to the registrar or use PayPal (if you can) to help keep our costs down.

Contact me (frameh at msu dot edu / 517.889.1100) if you have any questions.

Thank you for your time,
Dayle Frame

Chris is in.....anyone else? Only one SM so far? C'mon.....man up, go over to wmr-scca.motorsportreg.com, log in and sign up. With half of the track newly paved, track records will fall. It could be you.

All of the front stretch and through to T4. I was out there a couple of weeks ago helping to install the new T&S loop and its smoooooth. Even in T1 where the washboard and that big dip were....GONE!

A quick FYI....our cancellation policy allows you to enter the WMR/FWR Cheap Points Double National and, if necessary, cancel your entry [U]without[/U] penalty up to 5/25 (the Tuesday [U]after[/U] MidOhio's race). So if you want to come to Grattan, please enter. If (God forbid) something bad happens at MidO, then withdraw and there will be no cancellation fee. The last thing our registrars want is to process a huge number of entries a few days before the race. I should know....I'm married to one of them. Our online registration closes on 5/25 (11:59PM EST) and there is a $25 late fee for having the registrar do an entry manually.

When you redo the back section of the track, are they going to make the jump bigger? Big smile!

Wouldn't bother me....or an SM....but those formula guys might not care for it. I think the F5's usually get all four off there. Very scary.

I spoke with the owners a couple of weeks ago and the plan is to pave the back next year.

We have 11 SM's entered folks. Good but not great. Its a DOUBLE AT GRATTAN....you know you want to.....
