Awesome. Thanks.

By the way, maybe if you post the schedule of events for each particular night that would encourage those from far away to make the trip. Enduros would hate to show up on sprint night and sprinters would hate to show up on endurance night. But if guys knew that the races for a particular week were their type then they'd definitely go. That works well at DLV in Atlanta. Some folks only show up on Chariot Race night. Others only show up for the 10 Mile Scratch Race night.

Good luck with this race series. It sounds like fun.

For example, have a look at our April 2011 calendar: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/calendar/2011-04

Notice April 6th "Record Night":
C Grade Chariot
B Grade Chariot
A Grade Chariot

B Grade 10 Lap Win and Out
A Grade 10 Lap Win and Out
C Grade 5 Mile Scratch Race $20 to break the record
B Grade 8 Mile Scratch Race $20 to break the record
A Grade 10 Mile Scratch Race $20 to break the record

And April 13 "Wheelrace night":

C Grade Miss and Out

April 20 "Madison Night":

That way everyone knows the agenda well beforehand. This also helps the more serious athletes work these races into their training programs.
