How to order photos online
It has been a long time coming, and I know a lot of you have waited patiently, but photos from the 2013 season are now available for sale! I will continue to upload photo sets from the previous months, so if you do not see a particular weekend's photos, they will be uploaded shortly.
You can email me at email@example.com with any questions.
Jen has added a nice tutorial on how to order your photos online.
I've had a few questions on how to order photos from the new photo site, so I've made a simple tutorial with photos on how to order photos from the site. Hopefully the tutorial will answer any questions on ordering, and be sure to check back frequently for updates. I am currently working on the photo set from the last points day, so they will be available shortly.
Bracket finals 2013
First, on behalf of Greg Miller, the entire PRP staff and crew, and the PRP racers, we would like to thank all of the tracks, their racers, and crews for traveling in for the bracket finals. We are proud to have been your hosts, and we hope you enjoyed yourselves as mush as we enjoyed having you here. The great racing, awesome collection of different cars, sportsmanship, and camaraderie makes for many special memories.
Congratulations to Team PRP on winning the track championship, the 3rd one in the last 4 seasons, and 5th in 7. Everyone on the team worked hard for their spot and absolutely deserved to be there. Steve Butler did an awesome job, putting the exclamation point on the team win when he won the final final of the weekend, getting the Iron Man in Top. PRP racers did fantastic in every class: Kara Jo Bowman made it to the semis in Top. Mike Balaska and Mike Egan both made it to the quarterfinals in Modified, Balaska losing by .0003, and Egan by .008. Rick Clay made it to the semis in Street, losing a tough round to his cousin and class winner Bruce Tharp. Bikes did great, all 4 advancing to round 2. Beaver Springs is always tough in Bike, and our guys knocked out 3 BSD bikes, which is an accomplishment in itself. Matt Powell and Joe Devola both made it to the semis. All 3 junior dragsters won round 1, with Brandon Butler and Thomas Vasbinder making it down to 5 cars.
Before eliminations started, IHRA presented Greg Miller with a plaque, naming PRP the IHRA Division 3 Summit SuperSeries track of the year.

Jennifer has setup a youtube channel for PRP.
This from Jen.
ATTN RACERS: PRP now has a YouTube channel. I just got it up and running tonight, but...WE NEED VIDEOS!!! GoPro vids, Trackside/Standside vids, even videos from when it was still Keystone.
If you want your videos on the site, message me, and we'll work out how to get the video to me to upload (Probably just transfer at the track, seems easiest).
Due to popular demand we are bringing back the Racer's Bios.
You need to register here.
Once registered you will then be emailed upon activation.
When you are activated you will be able to modify your profile and upload a photo.
Photos will be resized and a thumbnail generated. Once I have a few we will use them on the right side where the 3 temporary photos are now.
They will be picked randomly and rotated.
You can find them under the "MEDIA" on the top menu.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
