The last races at the BCLMRA track before the Christmas break were held on December 8th, 2007. In the feature races, Michelle Wertheim won the IMOW powder puff class, Kerby Barbe won the IMOW novice class, and Chase Martinez won the IMOW expert class. Dennis Drake of Marble Falls put on an eye-opening exhibition of speed and performance in faster AP and CP classes. A small but enthusiastic crowd of about 40 racers and spectators enjoyed the afternoon of racing. The next races are tentatively scheduled for March 29, 2008, at 1pm. The public is invited. Additional information is available from Steve Wertheim at 830 336 2172, or Jim Barbe at 830 336 3611.
