Windy Hollow Dragway / Sponsors needed for 2013 Season
« on: March 06, 2013, 10:26:07 AM »
I have been asked a zillion times about the fate of the 2013 racing season. Good news is that it is only March and there is still time to make something happen. Bad news is that it is March already!

With YOUR help we can make this happen! But it might not happen without your help. So let's make it happen!!

The scoop: for there to be full race season, sponsors are needed. As posted before, there is nothing at the track - no timing system, PA system, track prep equipment, safety equipment, concession equipment....etc.

I would be willing to do whatever is needed IF we can secure sponsorship to help get the supplies and equipment needed to get opened.

There are sign packages, race events, clA- sponsorships....etc. available for one, two or three year deals. Let me know if you can help. I will post more information on sponsorship packages soon.

You can contact me by email: whrp@aol.com or on Facebook or by message here.

Thanks everyone!!! - Rooster

-----------------------------------------------------

Sponsors needed for the following:

1.   TSI 2000 Plus timing system – installed          
2.   Guardrail on right side shutdown (must add about 100 to 200’) - could be concrete barriers that need to be moved from Henderson, Ky   
3.   Guardrail at start line for starter safety area (must do) - unused guardrail is behind the concession and should be installed at the starting line. Must do prior to opening.    
4.   Fire extinguishers – minimum of 8 ABC - 2  at start line, 2 - safety vehicle, 1 -concession, 1- tower and 2- top end safety          
5.   EMT first responder bag and supplies                     
6.   Push Blower (used) for track clean up                  
7.   Brooms, squeegee, mops for track clean-up               
8.   Shovels, scrapers, torch, LP tank (2-3 of each) for track scraping and cleaning      
9.   Garden hoses for cleaning dirt (up to 700’ 5/8 heavy duty hose), nozzles - 700' would go length of track so it can be washed weekly after dirt races.
10.   Ag Sprayer on trailer for traction compound   
11.   Electrical repairs and replace lights                  
12.   2-way radios for officials (start, tower, safety, water, gate, tech, staging…etc.)   
13.   PA system and microphone                     
14.   Speakers or repairs and speaker wire                  
15.   New pole and electric box at finish line                           
16.   Concession repairs – back wall and floor, side door, etc.            
17.   Concession items– frig, freezer, electric skillet, warmer, microwave…etc)

This is just a list of things needed now. There is another list of 'wants'!! A long wishlist just like the old Sear's catalogs!!

Bunches have said they would help but not one has actually signed up to be there Saturday. Should I be there or am I wasting my time?

Windy Hollow Dragway / Clean up day 2013
« on: March 02, 2013, 07:04:38 AM »
hecko everyone! A clean-up day has been scheduled thanks to all the great offers to be there! I know that many of you really want the track to open this season and so would I. Nothing yet has been set in stone for 2013 but hopefully soon.

Clean-up Day #1 will be March 9th from 10am to 3pm.

There is nothing at the track to work with so if you can, please bring supplies and equipment.

Things that need to be done:

Trees need to be cut and trimmed.
Guardrail needs to be moved to starting line.
6 boards need to be replaced on grandstands.
Hand rail on grandstands needs repair/replaced.
Concession has some repairs that need to be done.
Would love to paint but have no paint at this time.
Trash needs to be hauled away (before 12 on Saturday)
A few ditches need cleaning to accelerate drainage.
Would love to paint grandstands, concession, starting line and window sills of the tower. Need paint and supplies.
There is a leak on one window in the tower that needs to be tracked down, repaired and the floor may need some attention.

Again there is nothing there to work with except water and electric.

Need:
Chainsaws, fuel, oil
Shovels
If I remember correctly, the guardrail has 1" bolts. (It was installed behind concession and is no longer in use and the start line must have a safety barrier for the start line personnel.
Need 6 treated boards for grandstands - correct size to be posted since I haven't replaced any in 8 years.
Handrail - 1 inch tubing is now used. It doesn't have to be completely replaced but has rotten in several location.

Would love to see you and get the track property looking lots better.

Post if you plan to join us and tell us what you can bring on the 9th!

I appreciate each of you.
Thanks.
