Hi flat track fans.  Dan & Kathy Rouit here.  Sorry this update has taken so long!  But it's mostly because results from doctors didn't happen as fast as we thought.  The pet scan came out favorable in that that the cancer is confined to the bladder.  At least it was a month ago.  Also, Dans heart is strong enough for the 4 hour surgery!  So it's scheduled for April 26 at Clovis Community Medical Center and his stay will be from 5-7 days.  We have 3 different appointments to keep before that day in preparation for the surgery.  So we want to thank you all for the prayers, cards & calls you've sent up & out for Dan.  Please keep up the good work of love & friendship!  Speaking of love & friendship, so many of you have acknowledged this wonderful website and think it's ours.  This website was created, designed and maintained daily by our good friend, Dennis Suter.  He's the one that deserves 100% of the credit and thanks for it.  So we want to thank you, Dennis for this GINORMOUS endeavor of keeping our sport alive and well.

Love to all!  Dan & Kathy

AJ passed away 3 years ago this July, he had many, many concussions and as a result took his own life, needless to say AJ's parents have had a difficult time.
We did a memorial race the year after AJ died and missed last year, in planning this just in the last few weeks i have seen a bit  of a spark back in Tony's eyes (AJ'S Dad) our hearts go out to AJ's family and our hope is to put on a GREAT event for a Wonderful young Man/Racer who brought so much joy to all of our life's.
AJ had a very strong Passion for Flat Track Racing  and our Goal is to get Sponsors to help us bring in a GREAT purse for the Pro Class.
So at this point we are asking for Sponsors for the AJ Herrera Memorial Race.

And we are also looking for some of our racing heroes to come make this a special day and be a part of our legend crew!!!

Any questions you can call me @ 805 698-1490
Thanks again

 Joe Kopp race report from Las Vegas



 I know that most of you are probably thinking, man, I haven't gotten a race report from Joe for a few years or more. Yep, you're right because as most of you know I retired (back at the end of the 2010 season) from this full time grind of beating my body up, as I have been trying to live on the safer side of the fence. Most of you also know that I have usually competed at one GNC race a year or so since I retired but I really didn't know if I was going to compete in a GNC this year as I was just busy with too many other things in life. Well then we had almost a two month break after our last GNC race and I started thinking about maybe racing the finale indoor shorttrack in Vegas. Yah, I was thinking about the same thing that you probably are. Why would he want to race an indoor with those crazy kids as those are the tracks that are usually referred to as "bump to pass". So I thought it over for quite some time as I knew this was my last opportunity to race a GNC this year but I also knew that I did not want to really get involved in any bump to pass operation, as those bumps hurt way more than they used to. Ok, truth be told, I thought about it for a minute or two and said...... Ok, let's do this!
