        Hi Paul & Eleanor,

        It's great to see you participating in our group.

        Bullwinkle's Raceway is in Greenville Junction, Maine, at the Moosehead
        Industrial Park which is in the upper part of the town and on the west side
        of Rte. 6/15 (across from the lake). It's very basic (at least it was last
        year when I was there), a 1/4 mile dirt oval laid out between dirt piles and
        tires. They run enduro type 4 cylinder and 8 cylinder classes.

        If they are running Saturday nights this year that could work out good for
        someone who may want to go to the Moose River (Jackman) enduro the next day,
        if they hold it again the day before Labor Day like they did the past 2
        years.

        Will

          STAFF REPORTS MOOSEHEAD JCT TWP - Bullwinkle's Raceway, a quarter-mile,
          entry-level dirt auto racing track in Greenville Junction, opens for its
          second season on Saturday, May 24. Cars and trucks in the track's four
          divisions will have a chance to tune up for competition on May 17.
          Track operators Doug Whitney and Doris Peterson decided to switch to late
          Saturday afternoon schedule instead of running Sundays for the second year.

          "This way, everyone has all day Sunday to recover, including the workers,"
          said Whitney. "We're not really competing with anyone since the Saturday
          night tracks run different divisions."

          The Little Enduro, Big Enduro, Pickup Truck and Ladies Divisions at
          Bullwinkle's Raceway are actually similar to the Wacky Wednesday Series
          running at Speedway 95 in Hermon. Whitney ran in the Pickup Truck class at
          Speedway 95 for several years, but will concentrate on the dirt oval closer
          to home this season.

          Whitney and Peterson are also negotiating for a set of bleachers for the
          spectator area later this year, but fans are still welcome to bring lawn
          chairs. General admission is still only $5 and a pit pass is $10. Youngsters
          under age 11 are admitted free to the spectator areas only.

          The track operators also hope to build up its Ladies Division and will pay
          off the first five places, just like the other classes, if a minimum of
          eight cars get in the lineup. Regular weekly payoffs are $50 to win down to
          $10 for fifth-place, but some race winners this year will pocket up to $250
          in special events.

          A point fund will also be paid to the top five drivers in the weekly racing
          series at the annual awards banquet.

          Rule books and more information are available at D.W. Cash Fuel in
          Greenville Junction or by calling 695-3566.
