i think it is fine, just as long as your races are not close to each others. in the process you would get to meet some new people. DJ is an awesome guy, super nice. one time my cousin was having problems with his engine, and DJ let my cousin use one of his spares, and he let my cousin have a whole clutch set-up. the thing was my cousin lived in sacramento, and so DJ told my cousin just to send the engine back to him anytime. if you see me at the track, ill be more than happy pitting for you. i actually enjoy pitting. just lok for a fat dark asian kid with a x1-cr

I could relate as I've sometimes felt that same way, but you get used to it. It helps to remember peoples names and always ask early. Most likely others are feeling the same way so it usually works out, so in future events, people would be more than willing to help you out.

I will usually be there solo as well and dont realy know anybody yet either but would be happy to help with pit duties if we are not in the same class. No racing for a little bit though, i need to learn to drive again first! I will probably start up in about a month.

Robert,

I will be there with both Truggy and buggy. Only plan on racing buggy though. I will be mainly rebuilding my engine's and getting them ready, (broken in) etc for the Nitro Maxx Challenge.

More of a preparation session.

Track looks awesome.

Cool, I am glad its kosher to ask around for a pit man, though if anyone sees me next time (my body will have my screen name on it) feel free to ask me if you need a pit man!
