Long story short, no one calls it Average Joe's Raceway
Joe, Thanks for sharing that story, I often wondered how the name change came about ! I guess the customer is always right, lol !

What a great weekend ! Fantastic Job by everyone involved. Joe and his crew at Average Joe's, Mr. Baker and the Eat Dirt crew, Mr. Henry for the help sorting out some issues with the truggy, and pitting, and of course ... to Martin - Thanks for the brilliant weather! I knew you would be looking down on us watching.

Some great battles, and tonnes of fun ! I think I now have to get myself a new Short Course !!!

I think I can speak for the rest of the Glenwood crew and say that we had a blast as usual this weekend. I wish we had more people come up but a couple bailed at the last minute. I have to admit to watching a lot of the truggy A-main battle while I was out on the track marshaling , but that was a great clean battle between Derek and Brian and I love to see stuff like that. Track was challenging for sure on Sunday but it was fun nevertheless. Had tons of fun in ebuggy against George, Peter and Jay L.(thanks again for the pit help). Nitro buggy was super fun too, wish I didn't lose my podium spot on the last lap by parking it against the pipe One of these years I'll figure out this whole nitro thing. This really was a great way to honor Martin as we always had a great time racing with him on both sides of the border. We'll definitely be back.
