Date: October 14th, 2011

Hello Everyone --
Well as we all know, October is here and we have had a variety of weather so far this month.  Everything from frost to 80 degree temps!!  That's Wisconsin and October for ya!!  Well this weekend's weather looks good!!  We are looking at upper 50s to low 60s for temps and pretty much no chance of rain!!  So.... that's all a good thing.  Just think of what kinds of ETs and 60 ft times you'll be getting in this cooler weather. 
We only have a couple of weekends left of drag racing (weather permitting), so please plan accordingly. 
On that note, we hope you will come out and join us at Rock Falls Raceway  for the LAST Test & Tune Day of 2011 on Saturday, October 15 and the last Bracket Drag Race (for points that is) on Sunday, October 16.  Remember the Bracket Races are OPEN TO ALL CARS, TRUCKS, MUSCLE CARS, IMPORTS, BIKES & SLEDS!!  You do NOT need to be in the RFR points series to attend any of these bracket race events, so please come on out and join us. 
A couple of quick things before I get on to the schedule of our weekend's events!!
E.T. FINALS -- Team Rock Falls Raceway finished tied for 3rd place (out of 20 Teams) at the Division 5 E.T. Finals just a few weeks ago.  We had a great time and I want to thank my Team for their support, their efforts and for making the journey to Brainerd. 

Although no one on our RFR Team won any of the classes at the ET Finals, we did have a few racers who do race at the Rock earn some of those spots and they will be heading off to Pomona, CA next month to compete in the World Finals, so congrats to them.  Winner of Super Pro was Gary Koch, Winner of Pro ET was Brandon Schmall and runner-up was Jim Noben!!  All of these guys did a great job and we're proud of them and happy for their accomplishments!!  Good luck in Pomona guys!!  

Finally, thank you to Mel and Deb Knott and Joe Marx and for putting on our Team Rock Cookout on Friday nite.  They did a great job with the Pulled Pork and fixings, as usual.  We are alway s the best fed team there.  Also "thanks" for providing us with food throughout the entire weekend.  Thanks so much, again, couldn't have done it without you!!  Team Rock Falls is the BEST!!
