    Hiya folks!
    Don’t let the new format make you forget that there’s still time to pre-enter for the second glorious event at Blackhawk Farms Raceway for C.E.S. BFR is one of the Midwest’s best offers to karters for road racing: great camping, facilities, beautiful environment, not to mention the great track that can generate some fantastic racing. Hey, but don’t take my word for it:

    “One of the best tracks in the mid-west. Some of the best racers. Guaranteed to have fun. Always someone to race with. Great people” ~ George Argiris
    “Yeah, blackhawk’s facility is really nice, the bathroooms, the showers, the “watch tower” thing. I really like the facility.” ~ Lance Hiser
    “I love Blackhawk!!” ~ Paul Benke
    “If you go to Blackhawk and don’t have fun, you aren’t karting right.” ~ Jake Bustos

    So, in other words, if you don’t go to Blackhawk, you obviously don’t want to have fun. I would feel sad for you, but I’ll be at Blackhawk and I’ll just feel too awesome to be bothered.

    Preregister online HERE!

    See you there.
    Cheers.

    I’ll be sending my pre entry in for Tag Masters this week.

    Jeff, If my brother doesn’t come and my dad doesn’t want to run (chances are slim on both) I’d be willing to partner up with you.

    I was just thinking about the team race the other day. I was going to at least run it by myself to make the donation. I was thinking about pitting and running around the kart a then getting back in and go.

    Sorry for the low picture quality. That is an original GoPro camera and the battery died about half way through the race.

    I really hope I can make this!  I missed out on the earlier event and once again I am cutting it close.  I do have a question to ask.  I am not a member of CES yet, and from my understanding you need to buy a weekend membership to join the club at Black hawk.  Am I able to pay for registration and a small weekend membership at the gate if I show up.  I also do not have a transponder, am I able to rent one at the track?

    If I can pick up mycylinder jugs by Thursday I will probably end up racing.  If I can race I will most likely still come out to spectate and meet some of you guys.  And for the 2014 season me angrit coworker are going to try and make all of theevents.

    Donnie, at the gate you will pay for a pit pass. Once you come in go to scoring tower and see the ladies in registration. They can help with everything you asked about.

    I really hope I am able to get my engine together to race with everyone on Sunday.  Since it blew a rod bearing it has been nothing but a pain in my a**!

    Will there be any shops at the track this weekend selling parts? I’m in need of a 20 and 21 tooth axle gear for my shifter.  They’re hard to find around indy I’m finding out…

    I will be picking up my cylinder jugs today and breaking in my engine Saturday.  That means I should be able to race this weekend if all goes as planed.  I just hope my Pavesi can keep up!!  And since it’s my first time in a shifter at Blackhawk I think I may start in the back of the grid so I don’t cause any issues.

    How much are the pit passes for kids?  I think my 4 year old and 11 month old are coming down for the day on Saturday.

    Alright the kart is running I hope to see you guys on Sunday!  I just hope I can get my carb sorted out.  I am also running 17/24 on a pavesi, I was told to run 19/25 but I do not have those gears and 17/24 was as close as i could get to that.
