1. Hot chocolate is being sold at the concession stand.

2. Tony Dunker, Brandon Brown and Justin Reed are talking about the latest episode of “Rubicon” on Sunday nights, rather than what just happened in a heat race.

3. Denny Woodworth knows he won’t be referred to as the “late model lawyer” again until next April.

5. Ice forms in turns one and two following the pre-race watering of the track.

6. There is a sense of calm in the hobby stock pits, as opposed to the weekly fisticuffs in July and August.

7. Terry Houston and/or Dave Moore are no longer making Iowa stock car drivers mad.

8. Race fans are given a coupon that can be used toward a Thanksgiving turkey.

9. The Rev. Dennis Thomas, the unofficial track pastor, wishes all in attendance a happy holiday season before the start of the last night of racing.

    with all the rain and moisture we’ve had, we could have an iceskating rink in the “infield”.

    Instead of having Zippy as the mascot, we could have Tony R. dress up as the Grinch. (sorry)

    You’ll still be racing on Halloween….so we’ll have a costume contest. (of course Michael Long will probably win with his chicken suit…and he deserves it!) : )

  5. Qcy Godfather says:

    Tony will quit calling Michael Long a chicken but will be referring to him as a Turkey.
