Guys & Gals,

Please join me For the 2023 12th Annual Gainesville Get-Together & 1/4 Mile Run on April 1at at the Gainesville Raceway (Home of the Gatornationals) for a Great day hanging out with friends & seeing a bunch of trucks on & off the race track !!

Gates will open at 8:00 & Racing Starts at 10:00. I should be there Around 9

We will be parked in the pits in the corporate hospitality area (VIP 301) with trees next to the finish line ! So we can be in the shade & watch the racing !!

You can run yours down the 1/4 mile track for some time runs or can join the Summit bracket racing for a chance to win some money
The entry price is $15 spectator & $40 for racing in the Sportsman class.

They will be running the NHRA Summit Series ET Racing

Sorry change of plans......wife has been sick but I was still coming to Gainesville but as you might know she has an aggressive form of leukemi and now it seems she has covid too. Well of course I have not shown any signs and have been multiple boosters.
So hate to but must cancel.
Again sorry I was looking forward to it. I've cancelled my res at hotel so don't know if they would be available for someone else.

Hope you'll post some pictures so I can at least see what I'm missing.
How was the country cruise this morning....that's my favorite
Wife is doing better and I'm sure because she has had her covid shots. It's was little scary though because she's had lung cancer (in remission) plus leukemia , very rare and aggressive form of , and now covid. We were surprised when we were told. We have been careful but have been relaxing our guard a bit. Well back to masks again.
