Thank you to everyone who either made a donation or secured a sponsor for the Bash, it takes a lot of work to produce this race.  Shout out to everyone who rallied around to find workers!  Thank you to the office staff Nancy Howell, Wendy McCaffree, Raelynn Hays, & Paige Leavitt and to Lyle Potts for announcing for us again on Saturday. Thank you to Jenny Johnson, Jaimee Root, Kerri Schroeder & Melissa Potts for handling the In/Out gate.  Thank you Megan Tutvedt & Carrie Dickey for helping with the Time Onlys on Friday and being available to help out wherever I needed them to.


We have gotten off to a good start for our 2017 race season, but there is a lot of racing left with a possible 9 sanctioned MT 5 NBHA races. Reminder 2017 will be my last year as Director, so if anyone is interested in taking on being the Director please contact Wendy McCaffree, Jolene Burke or myself, we would be happy to answer any questions. Reminder you must enter 4 Montana NBHA races to qualify for the Montana NBHA State Finals which will be held in Great Falls September 30th-October 2nd, which is shaping up to be even bigger and better than last year, don’t miss out.  You must enter 8 NBHA MT5 races to qualify for a jacket at year end.  I hope everyone has a great but safe summer, see you all down the road.
