    Big event July 30th, Arnie the Farmer and others should be good gates open 10:30 racing around 2:00
     
  9. We were there yesterday. The Messino Gang in "Shake, Rattle & Run" vs. Arnie's "Tameless Tiger" and the Nostalgia Super Stock guys put on a good show. The place was packed with good cars and an impressive number of spectators. We left just before 11 PM and they were still racing. Well worth the 1 1/2 hour drive!

    GREAT SHOW!!!! Congrats to Bob Gibson and his crew.

    Midstate is the first place I ever when to the drags. I saw these wheelstanding rails on TV and had to check it out. There was a jet car that started a tree on fire accidently. I've been hooked ever since. Spent most of my spare time at Motion near Assumption.
