Standing Water Cancels Speed Week
SCTA — August 9, 2014
The SCTA Board is currently on the salt, and has determined that the standing water will not dry in time for us to hold our annual Speed Week event. The Board is also discussing the possibility of extending our next event - World Finals (Sep 30 - Oct 3) into a full week of racing as a sort of delayed Speed Week. We Thank You all for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Okay, the pics that were posted a little while ago of the shin deep water on the salt is the Pit Area. There is currently 1"-2" of water on some of the courses. They are waiting to see how much of the water recedes by tomorrow before making any official announcements.
We know this sucks not knowing what is going to happen and we do apologize. Mother Nature just had her way with us last night. We will update you as soon as we have any further information.

Back from Louisville, Headed to Bonneville
JHRS 8/4/2014 - Wade Caldwell
our booth before the show started
It's a busy time of year around the shop. It seems like we just got back from Columbus, but that was three weeks ago before Louisville. Now, the trucks are packed and getting ready to pull out for Utah.
We had a great weekend at the NSRA Nationals with cars in our booth, as well as Walker Radiator and The Rodder's Journal. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello.
Prepping for Goodguys Columbus
JHRS, 7/7/2014 — Wade Caldwell
We're packing up the cars and parts and getting ready for the drive to Columbus. If you're heading to the show, make sure to stop by our booth and see us.
If you're in the market for a new set of brakes, stop by and check out our new Kinmont Safety Stop brakes. They're easy to bleed and best of all, they stop like modern disc brakes.
