Payson City may cancel the race.
Last year we had no one (this is not a typo) show up to race. The only two cars were the ones I brought.
Payson City contacted me asking if there was any interest in continuing the race. They are making plans for Onion Days right now (4/19/19) so I need to get back with them soon. Maybe Labor Day weekend is a bad time for people to be in town and to spend time on the race.
Please contact me at fleany "at" gmail.com if you are interested in seeing the race continue--preferably if you're interested enough to build or race a car. There are enough cars out there we could find you one to drive if you aren't able to build one. But building a car is a lot of fun.
If we do have a race it will go like this:
There is NO FEE to race. We are trying to keep it simple, so in addition to having no registration fee, you show up by 2:00 pm on Saturday to register.
Spanish Fork is done with the derby. Payson is the last holdout. If we don't race this year I'm afraid it's gone for good. That thought doesn't trouble me as much as it should; I don't have the energy for this that I used to. I'm willing to do the work if people have the interest, but I'm not going to force my hobby on anyone.
Looks like my little pipe dream of a Utah Valley Racing League is not going to happen.
