Yep it's time to start this thing up. We are one month away from this point from the Showtime Speedway event in Florida. So let's get serious about this list. The first report I have looks this way:

Good List:
Mark Tunny
Ben Tunny
Chris Harmon
John Conner
Steve Durham
Cory Harmon
Mike Riddle
Donnie Murphy

Maybe List:
Mike Hadley
Pat Pierce
Jeff Harmon


Still waiting to hear from a few others that are possibilities such as Jeff Roberts, Darrin Greenwell, Doodle Farris, Buddy Vertrees to name a few.

And both Vertrees and Greenwell are a no go this year. Also heard that both Jesse Tunny and Austin Tunny will not run.

I believe Jesse will be in the grey 57 he drove a couple of times last year and Ronnie Basham rented for the Midwestern.
