I'll try to be there  :)




Very good news! I love these events.


Hopefully the altered will be done by then. Maybe I'll even have a car of my own to race!


That would be sweet.  You can always borrow Howie's again too lol

I can tell you for certain it will be a 2 day track event, no matter what.  We're big enough now to actually need it.


Awesome on the 2 day event!  Will be curious to see when we can fill every single spot at the host hotel.
