I do have to say that even with the huge number of entries I was still very impressed with how tight the show was run. Hats off to Scotty and his gang who were awesome with tech and taking care of everything to make this the best race I have ever been to. I will definetly be making the trip next year.

The traction was definetly a little wierd and the air was dry. I also had to water my sponge like 2 times a day and had some seriously chapped lips but all in all it wasn't so bad. My bigggest problem was not driving all that well and having some lack of HP out of my 19t motors.

Thanks again Scotty and crew!!

I was running fresh tires in 19 turn and then rerunning them in stock. A brand new set of tires has a little more grip than a re-run set unless you clean them out and let them dry for a while. So new tires (in any class any tire) was slightly faster as they were a little more free on the track....but at the same time they were harder to drive.

I was amazed at how dry it was, but would never complain about lack of humidity. Racing in high humidity sucks worse.

I thought the hotel was great. It was clean and new (unlike the Snowbirds hotel) The air was dry and Mark and myself suffered from sinus and chapped lips but that's not excuse for myself having such a bad race weekend. I loved the hotel just because I won some cash. The shuttle bus was not that bad to get to the strip. I vote for it to be there next year!

My non-scientific opinion is that over time you body adjusts, but when you fly in from a more humid climate, it really puts the hurt on your skin.

Of course, I also think the blasting AC and everything else contributed as well. I am sure we can work something out with the hotel with that next year.
Try living at altitude, makes Vegas look like a rain forest......
