The club has held (3) meetings over this past winter & spring in forming the upcoming season, including this year's Central New York Stock Car Hall of Fame Induction. The 22nd Reunion will be held on September 17th at Midstate and will include some structured on track action for members and their cars. Should be a hoot!
