Or even from Clarksville. The real question that popped into my mind was "Why have I not seen you at Blytheville events?"

That's because he lives in the woods near Trenton. That's the only place he could find to hold his underground roller derby and lawn mower racing events.

For those who may go tomorrow to MFS event they posted this in their forum some rules for Sunday just thought you would like to know besides a 96db noise limit.
"This Sunday at Event 9 there are special precautions being taken with the course design. We are being very careful with safety, both for cars and karts, for one. For another, we are attempting to limit areas of sliding over painted lines. The course design will attempt to encourage straight-line braking in non-lined areas entering tight features, rather than trail-braking/power sliding momentum-maintenance techniques.

For these reasons, the flow of the course may be sub-optimal. As always, we welcome suggestions and especially please voice any safety concerns you may have. Beyond that, thou shalt not move cones without the permission of the either the event master or someone on the TAC Slalom committee.

In addition, we will have an extremely low tolerance for any hooning. If you spin, both feet in. No drifting, please. No re-entering the course in a blaze of tire smoke. Drive for time, not for show.
One pavement area that sees a lot of wear is the start. It would greatly reduce the sealer wear at the start line if the run to the timing light has some turns prior to tripping the light that does not require a tire spinning start off the line to get the max speed at the light. The start will have a kink in it. The start will be on unsealed asphalt."

"One other thing: it was mentioned to me that some may not realize that MFS is not city property. It is school property. That means firearms are illegal, concealed carry permit or not."

Were they put on probation or some such from this lot? Their rules seem fine and acceptable, but hint at 'We've been told to be on our best behavior or we can/will lose this place'. Just curious. :|

You are exactly right. This is basically an audition to see if they want to allow TVR/TAC to run there next season.

And considering that Milton Frank is BY FAR the best site within a reasonable distance for a local event for us........we need to be on our best behavior.

Had a great time!!!!! Course was fun no pinchy pinchy parts at all, if you did it right, yes there are some light poles but nothing that can't be worked around, course could've been longer BUT it was perfect. Mr Fisher did a very good job.

Scotty came home with the win in CStreet. Paxed Top 5 as well. COULDA been a 1-2 BUT I couldn't stay out of the cones DAMN ORANGE THINGS!!!!! it was fun comparing times and socializing between runs, there was enough time between runs to make it enjoyable.

MFS is still one of the best sites in the S.E.. Morning session was loosey goosey but afternoon times were a falling big time.

I would say they get to return. I hope they do. always good to have great sites here in the S.E..

Congrats SCOTTY!!!!!
