August 15th McConnellsburg, PA Fulton County Fair Race
« on: August 09, 2008, 05:45:50 PM »
The Fulton County Small Engine Club will be putting on a race Friday night August 15th at the Fulton County Fairgrounds in McConnellsburg, PA.

The race will be part of the Fulton Couny Fair show, so, it will not be the only thing going on that night. There is a lot of other family oriented things going on simultaneously on the fairgrounds.

The Fair Association has advertised a 7:00 P.M. starting time. They also have a 9:30 P.M. fireworks show advertised.

That means the race will finish under lights.

For those of you that have never been to our track, its a long one! It's a shade over 300 foot straightway down the tractor pulling track, to a sharp bumpy left turn, to a bit of a road course down the back side with gentle right and left turns, then to one big swooping left turn around the stage, and back down the straightway.

I just walked it off with a measuring tape wheel. The track was 766 feet long without swooping much for the road couse part. That will put our track around 800 feet with the swoops for the back side of the course.

We will race whatever ARMA classes that we have enough mowers to run in. Plus we always have a local church pastors stock mower race.

If ya'll would lke to participate in, or if ya'll want to watch a good evening mower race partially under lights with a fireworks show toward the end of the race. Come on up, over, or down (depending on where your from) on Friday August 15th and see us.

I'd like to get tech and registration started sometime between 5:00 - 5:30 P.M.
