Both tracks are starting out slow as far as car count for the figure 8. I think we will see a couple more at each track this week. It should jump up at the Sportsdrome next week for the Keep Kool 100. Then it should jump up at the Speedrome the following week for the Ed Bishop race. Getting back to this week though, I guess it just depends on if you feel like taking a little nice drive or not. It will be nice weather either way, with it getting a little chilly at night. But at least there is no rain.

Ok fans. It's time I wake The Hawk's Nest up a little. Watch for me to try and make some kind of update on here each day about what's on my mind for that day or evening. It may be short or it may be a novel. But I will have something to say each day that is related in some way to racing. So let's get started. It sounds like the 34 Xtreme 8 car of Ronnie Basham has been sold. I don't think it has been made official to the public yet so I won't give out names. Apparently though, Ronnie has not been having fun in the X8 this season because of the low car count and some bad luck. I believe if he would have held on a little longer, both things would have changed. Bad luck always turns around. And I think we will see a few more cars join in the X8 soon. But for now, he is getting his Salem car back up to snuff.

Lots of people are talking about the low car counts and how they think the track is not caring about stuff. They think the track is going to close down soon and all kinds of things. Well, during these two weeks off because the Sportsdrome doesn't run on Derby Day, they are trying to work on the track surface to repair some holes and chunks and such to make it smoother. Just some words of encouragement that the track will still be here for a while still.

I'm taking a break from racing this weekend. Going away for a couple days with the wife up to Michigan. But I will still be keeping an eye on the racing world. Hopefully Speedrome gets to run their show. I know Artie B Ware is making the trip up with the outlaw.

With the Sportsdrome off this week for the Derby, I want to wish some of the Drome drivers luck as they race at other tracks today. Artie B Ware will be at the Speedrome with the outlaw. There might be a couple other guys from down here going but not sure. Also, good luck to some of the FWD drivers as they venture down to Highland Rim near Nashville, TN to try things out down there. Good luck to Joe Moore, Derick Bradshaw, AJ Seay and maybe a couple more.

Big congrats to Artie B Ware as he took home the victory in the Late Model Figure 8 feature at the Speedrome tonight. This is his first late model/outlaw F8 feature win.

We had our latest Club8 drawing tonight for $100. Danny Wheeler won it with lucky 113. Next scheduled drawing is for May 18th. It will be another Prize Vault drawing.

The X8 Twin 50s event is this Saturday at the Sportsdrome.

As we get closer now to the Race8 FWD8 "Cuttin' the X" series event on May 27th, I will be updating things often as far as info and driver updates. I have started a driver list on the FB page. I will be updating that list daily. Unfortunately this race is on the same night as the Spring Shootout in Indy. I'd love to go watch that race at the Speedrome but can't make it obviously.

I'll be filling in at the track as the announcer on Saturday at the Sportsdrome. So there will be limited pictures from this event. But I will have a partner if you will this week. We will both be doing the PA. There will be a little added element this week with all of this. A surprise for the fans to enjoy. I will just leave it at that for now. They haven't released an agenda for the evening yet, but the pits will open at 3pm with the grandstands opening at 5pm.

I continue to get things together for the first FWD8 series event on May 27th. I need one more bonus sponsor and I will be happy. I will post all the info about the event in a couple flyers real soon. I have an updated driver list going on the Race8 FB page. Right now we have 20 on the "Good" list with several "Maybes".
