Bonne Terre is a fairly new track owned and operated by Jared Keen and his excellent staff. He has done a great job getting this place in order. The pit area is newly sealed black top and has excellent parking. The concession stand has good food. The track is a little narrow 1/8 mile with about 1300 feet of shut down. The traction is excellent! Return road is fully paved. It is a very nice place to race.
Ken Kapper and I arrived at 5pm on Friday the 23rd and found Rod Urish and crew Richard with their Anglia already there. That evening, we each got in 2 time runs.
Saturday; Dave Walters arrived with his Henry J around 2pm followed by Jack Kaylor and crew, Poppa Jack and grandson little Jack with their Rambler. Then Rob Rothweiller with his 55 Chevy & Mark Campbell and crew Steve Zeiter with their Rambler arrived around 2:30. Ed Miller with his 55 Chevy was about 10 min behind. Mark Dulle with his 63 Nova arrived @ 4:30 after being stuck on the highway from a sudden downpour.
After getting all settled in we got to make our first time run around 6pm and by 6:30 we had a huge downpour. Unfortunately after about an hour and a half of steady rain and another storm on its way, Jared called the race. He thanked us and said he was very pleased with our group.
