Is there going to be interest in Short course this year. I know it was dead last year but funds are not looking like a buggy this year maybe next year. LMK if it looks like it will run and I will make some trips over there.

Firstly, thanks to DAK and crew for giving us another season. I've got the tingles.

Guys, they can't make it work for everyone. Half of us want to race on Saturdays and the other half Sundays. If Saturdays don't work for you, I suggest you try your hardest to make them work. Trains is consistently one of the best tracks in the region and the program is run unbelievably well. Not to mention the fact that the competition is ridiculous. Move some stuff around, suck up to your wife/girlfriend, whatever. Just get out there. It's worth it.
