Saturday night we are starting the show with a motorcycle parade. We are going to try to have bikes parked all the way around the track to hold a moment of silence in memory of Bill Warner's life and his dedication to racing and motorsports. Please join us with your bike if you have one to help us make this memorable. We will look to take photos of this moment and send them on to the family of Bill Warner to show them a little support from the County, in this difficult time. By the way, you do not need to buy a ticket and attend the races in order to participate in this portion of the show. We will begin the night with this and bikes will enter the track and then leavae the track area before racing begins. If you would like to stay and watch the show, buy a ticket come on in and enjoy. If you just want to come and be part of sending some county spirit to the Warner family please by all means come and join us with your bike at 5:50 outside of the pit gate. Thank you
