i'm assuming you're the guy going to leisure hours raceway? Its a good bunch of dudes out there...

couple things...

-try not to lean on the drivers stand
-don't drive the wrong direction on the track

all joking aside, its pretty easy going out there.

Oh man, I drove 75 minutes to a track early, early one morning and had left an entire pit box with Tx and tons of other stuff on my bench at home. Yep, I drove back and got it. I've NEVER done that since.
