Like I said I got a call and had to leave but I’m not going to get into why here.
Today of course in the Outlaw 200 and it should be a dandy. That many laps with a 40 plus car starting field makes for some great racing. And Fulton’s surface is always changing so make your plans to come out now and enjoy a great race.
I’ll be racing with Allie as she has two races to go. They start a little earlier so I may be able to make it to Fulton tonight but I have some work to do afterwards too so we’ll have to see. If not, I’ve got a lot of extra stuff I recorded yesterday that I can put up.
