Ray Bale with the Asgard Memorial Day Blowout said, “This year should be pretty good. We got some top fuels coming. So, they are always good. I like listening to them run. Everybody has a real good time. Bring anything you want to run with the bike related. We got the t-shirt contest, barrel racing, weenie contest, all kinds of different racing.”
