Y’all Come to the NCR Picnic! – UPDATE w/Registration Link

The North Carolina Region Picnic will be held on September 28th in NE Guilford County, at North East Park, 4010 High Rock Road, Gibsonville. We’ll get started about 9am and have the park until 8pm. We have secured the use of one of the larger shelters, which will accommodate more than 100. This is a large park with several features that should be of interest to all ages of your family. A new train has just been installed, a Carousel, miniature Golf, and ball fields of many types.

Speaking of ball fields, the West Chapter thought that a game between the Chapters would be a great idea. They invite you to bring the kids and whatever sporting goods they might want to use as there are varied playfields for our use.

The NC Region will provide hot dogs and hamburgers and soft drinks. To fill out the food and make the event a True NCR event, please bring a bowl of your favorite picnic fare.

Please note: This venue allows us to bring and consume BEER as our ONLY alcoholic beverage and ONLY IN CANS. Additionally, it may ONLY be consumed in Shelter #2 and NO OTHER PART OF THE PARK. And, don’t forget that we have to be out of the park by 8:00pm.

And…don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience a little bit of history!

Registration is here.

Anyone who would like to help out, please contact Buddy Matthews at 336-312-8858 or 336-617-8138 or redstarracing@triad.rr.com.

Changes to the Oak Tree Turn

Virginia International Raceway would like to thank their fans and community for their extraordinary support after the unfortunate event of VIR’s Mighty Oak falling down. “You have all made this event much easier to bear.”

VIR no tree

Due to the fall of the Mighty Oak, they have had to make some changes to the entire Oak Tree Turn. It was their intention to wait until winter to make these changes and to release this announcement for 2014, but a few recent incidents have shown them that they needed to take action now:

  • Station formerly known as 11A has been moved across the track to Driver’s Left and is now Station 11.
  • Station formerly known as the Oak Tree station has been moved off the turn and placed on Driver’s Left at the Photo / F&C access gate inside the chain-link fence and will now be called Station 12.
  • Station formerly known as 12 will now be called Station 13.
