Default Temporary Oval Conversion

East Haven Raceway has temporarily been converted to an oval. It will be put back to its original configuration by the end of February, 2010.

I grew up watching beat-up modifieds slipping in and out of the lights around decrepit West Haven Speedway, and to me, nothing makes oval track racing look better than lights. Nice work, RichD.

Default Update

I got ambitious and stained the table and gave it a finish coat of polyurethane. All of the graphics have been redone.

East Haven Raceway now has Trackmate. There is a 20 inch monitor at the back of the table.

I have installed a couple of strings of blue LED Christmas lights on the ceiling to use when I run night races.

Nice!! I'd like to run on that!!! I live in EH and we race primarily t-jets, we should have a non race track day. Just some goofing around and what not. We have a track also and could always use some more "racers".
