i forgot to mention something else.... do something to make your tx easliy distinguishable so when you go to pick it up from the teching table you know which one to get. it was a little tricky at stampys due to most of them being stock...

i learned my lesson and painted them

see me

Thanks arch!

Good tip,

Wont have time to paint them, will just slap some vinyl on them.

As West mentioned, he, John, Mickey and I are planning to be there as close to noon as possible. Mickey maybe later.

I plan on staying all day for the most part, right now I am sort of planning on staying till close. But we will see how tired I get.

See you guys tomorrow.

it's about 2am and i'm just getting home the drive was miserable up and back. pooring rain up and blizard snow on the way back... it was well worth the 14 hours in a car total

i want to first thank mike (tom thumb) for hosting the event and pulling it off without a hitch i think there was one instance of missed lap counts but other than that i saw no problems and if there were, you never knew i didn't get a chance to say goodbye or thank you mike...so please accept my thanks here!

i apologize for not making friday practice...one wrong turn and you off by about 100 miles

sorry for not hanging out and chatting at the end too...it was fun to run the monsters though

i'll post more about how my brother, cousin and myself did after a good 8 hours of sleep! i will not be posting an article however as some of the locals will be doning so and will be able to give the event and racers much better coverage than i could.

thanks also to mini-z for making the trip even though he couldn't race...it was a pleasure to finally meet you.

thanks to all the friendly locals for the help anf the many forum members as well. i have a new found respect for many after witnesssing their skills even those that didn't do so well (techno, joking), had a good time and that's the most important thing. seriously don't be too hard on yourself...it was only me 2nd competitive race and your 1st

oh, and i DO NOT recomenned the econo lodge just down the street
