Anyone who knows me, knows I am not the biggest racing fan out there but when I saw this news release I thought I would at least make sure that my friends who are racing fans are  aware of a starting time change at Quincy Raceways.  My good friend Jack Walbring provided this news release about the change:

Quincy Raceways will be instituting a new starting time starting this Sunday August 26 due to school being back in session. The Pit Gates will open at 2:30, Grandstands at 4:00, Drivers Registration Ends at 4:30, Drivers Meeting at 4:30, Hot Laps at 4:45 and Racing at 5:30pm.
