I hope Josh can overcome this and get some rest for the Birds.
geez I can't believe you guys are still fighting about this. he could of flown but maybe it was a question of all his stuff making it and then making it to the next race after that and the next race after that. UPS can screw up. plus he wasn't even sure to the last monent that he could race. more about that should be out before the end of the weekend. plus fatigue at the snowbirds is a given, the man is running 6 classes. you think he's got time to sleep. even going 24 hours straight he could still kick your butt in a race. you get sleep at the birds on monday. if it's anything like cleveland, I went to bed at 4am and was back up at 8am every day and I only ran two classes. sleep you're funny.

Gack - man, you have some serious issues. Obviously Josh likes to race and he does what he wants to - drive or fly. I'm sure his sponsors won't complain either way.

As an old oval racer I love seeing that many people running the class. I just wish people would run it again locally. I've tried to get the track to start again but teh owner seems to be against the idea.

Currently in the club race Bobby Flack is holding TQ for the first round in stock touring, with Brad Johnson right behind him. Flack had the fastest lap of 11.87 and 11.98 for Johnson.

I race Bobby almost every week and I can say that with a little more work he could be in the mod A with ease. This kid is fast. His dad is too.

Spend some time with his dad Ted. He has to be the most mellow guy on earth. But he can make a car turn left really really fast.
