We have had one racer pull out of the PSO Shark Pool......so that leaves 3 cars that will be battling it out for a list position. It will be a Round Robin style elimination. What are the current top 5 bringing to the show?? We have one list racer that will not be showing up for this race, so the Shark Pool winner will be assured the #5 spot. Kiwidave's Mopar is strong and has held the top spot for two races now. Does JJ have what it's going to take to get past Kiwidave for the #1 spot? SKR is hungry and wants that #1 spot as well. He also is chomping at the bit to drag JJ's ass down the track after the Dream Crusher's win in Colorado! Is that going to happen this weekend? I hope so! These two cars have history and a great rivalry that goes back a couple of seasons. Then there is Nosubfor3 that has parked the Nomad and has a new project in the works that he calls "Blue Silk". I don't know anything more about the car, but I 'm pretty sure it will be a GM product . A hungry Nosubfor3 has to be of concern to the rest of the field! I believe that with the addition of braid, shunts, traction magnets, and wheelie bars, we are going to see some significant performance gains. PSO track record will be established at this race.
The New Zealand cars have already arrived. I hope the NTRA racers have tuned their cars because the Kiwi cars are looking clean...lean...and mean! This is going to be good! I will start unpacking cars and posting arrival pics next week. I can feel the excitement building! OH YEAH!

My car got a make over. It's no longer "Reaper" (don't care much for the shows Reaper so I had to change) My car is now called "Slayer". Not sure what it'll have for the list. Could be some shake ups with the new mods and shark pool. I'm looking forward to the event.
Dave632's cars arrived today with the box a little beat up. But the cars are safe and sound as the result of good packing because someone in the USPS wasn't doing their job very well! Welcome back Dave!

Some of the USPS workers are animals and some do a good job. You would think a light weight package would not bother them to much. Glad to hear the cars arrived in one piece. I have received some pretty roughed up packages here to. I had a big problem with a package that went to Brooklyn NY. No one there seemed to be able to read the computer printed address on the package. They sent it to upstate NY where it was finally read and delivered??
Now if the motors don't blow up we should have a good race.
Two racers have yet to arrive, but they should be showing up anytime now. The track is ready and running fast. This is going to be a fun event! Thanks to all that are participating! I will start posting some arrival pics soon.

First to arrive over a week ago were the New Zealand racers. I am always happy to have the Kiwi Racers here at Bear Creek. They have been big supporters of my events. Thank you again and welcome! The two PSO cars.....Kiwidave's #1 Cuda "Villian" and newcomer in the Shark Pool....Ham1200's yellow Corvette.
........and the New Zealand Kiwi Challenge cars of Kiwidave, Ham1200, and the Hot Rod Boys.

Dave632 and his good looking entries. There has been a last minute change in Dave's PSO lineup. The '57 Nomad will be the list runner in the Shark Pool and the Farm truck has an open challenge to any of the list racers that want to try him out. The "55 convertible is his Match car. Track officials have already talked to the driver and told him he needs to have head protection whether he has brains or not.
Arriving close behind was Nosubfor3 with his PSO #4 Corvette "Blue Silk". This car is new to the list and is a total rebuild of the previous car. The USA #1 Camaro and the Monza F/C are his Kiwi Challenge cars. Nosub is no stranger to Bear Creek and has raced here before and done very well.
Welcome and good luck!

Last through the gates was SKR with his PSO #3 Mustang "Slayer". He is ready to make a run for #1 this weekend! The LA Hooker F/C and Alanabi TF are for the Kiwi Challenge and the Blue Hell F.E.D. is an Unlimited Outlaw 4 gear match race. SKR has also been down Bear Creek Dragway many times.
Welcome back and good luck!
