Looking at the possible car count her and it appears that many Indy drivers are willing to take this week off and rest rather than come down. That's understandable but also disappointing. Not too sure we will make the 20 cars needed for the increase. Here's what we have so far:

38 Artie B Ware
12 Brandon White
6 Chris Harmon
16 Jeff Harmon
17 Cory Harmon
86 Jeff Roberts
40 Darrin Greenwell
29 Bobby Corbin III
48 Doodle Farris
3T Mark Tunny
5 Ben Tunny
7 Austin Tunny
3 Steve Durham

Possible:
1 Jesse Tunny
4 Mike Hadley
9 Leonard Basham

Hopefully next year the tracks can work together a bit to avoid something like this. It is ashame that we had 6 good Outlaw races at the Sportsdrome last year and this year we only get 3 with one being ruined by the Spring Shootout.

What is going on with Buddy's outlaw? Pat Pierce? B & R's?

U say its a shame but now I may be wrong on this but speedrome has ran this race that weekend since they started it second y come for a 1500 race 2000 for 20+ cArs when you had a chance to come up here a run for 10k and 6 of say 12 ky drivers showed up the one that had the best chance stayed at home for family reasons so can't fault them to stay home on a nice weekend like this it would be great to work together but as I said I believe the race was that weekend the last 4-5 yrs it was a huge race when Joel had the first one kinda like this last weekend then slowed down to only a day race instead of a weekend

Last weekends race was great and I have no issuecwith the timing with it compared to tonights Sportsdrome race. My complaint is more based on only having 3 Outlaw races at the Sportsdrome this year.

The tming of the Shootout on a 3 day weeken right when a lot of schools just got out for summer break hurt some of the car count, but guys down here need to run more no matter where it is.
