My dad has a nifty scar on one of his legs from pegs like those, crashed at Ascot back in the fifties.

I spoke to my Island "Insider" last night. Event is still on. The head guy has been concentrating on his son competing at Loretta Lynn's and getting into Pro MX. After Loretta's he will be on the GP full time. Current plan is to have Thurs. as a practice day, Friday a Pro MX, Sat & Sun GP.

He had problems with the website but has a new one that has yet to be updated from the last race:

http://www.thecatalinagrandprix.com/

I also heard some disturbing news about D-37 clubs that helped put the race on last time all but holding the event hostage by wanting huge money (six figures) along with free entries and all expenses paid for everyone. Pretty crazy seeing as the promoters lost money last time. I see getting course workers and help as being the biggest hurdle this time.

I have no idea where you would sign up to be a course worker. I would guess that once the web site gets up to date there might be a link to contact the promoter. I think the chances of getting a free entry or expenses paid would be highly unlikely.

Because I know you guys need to be whipped into a froth.

A couple programs I found after my dad passed.





1955 - number 166 on the same page with Bud Ekins' brother, Dave, and "Feats" Minert.



1956 - number 184. Dave and Bud Ekins started behind him that year.



And here are a few action shots:

I was bummed that we didnt get to race through town but that would have been too much to hope for. Just being able to say that I raced there once is pretty cool. I'd love to give it another go....
