Default Timezone Grand Prix

Hey guys,

I just wanted to extend a invitation to the TimeZone Grand Prix. We just started running the Gt class and we are having a blast. We will be running the sweeps as a spec tire for the class.
I would like to thank Sweep for the support and John for being a class act...
We hope to get to see you there.... TIMEZONE GRAN PRIX July 22,23,24 2011

I had this one on my list to do, but the Byron race worked better as I was able to take the wife to a friends lake house for a week. Many kitchen passes earned!!!

But Maybe ..........

You can buy them unmounted, and glue them up. I buy them mounted because I glued them up once.

Tires worked welll at the Byrons race. Not sure what tires the winners were on, but I loaned a set of 45's out and they did not come back ....... 50's worked well but based on the temps, had to get some heat into them then good to go.

Car was quick when the engines worked, but never did run a full qualifier. Was on pace to be gridded 5/6 in the A, but hey that is racing.

Mark, I'm going to the Timezone race. I would love to see you at that one if you can work it out. Be sure to let us know when the Rocky mountain challenge is coming up. I've been on Sweep tires ever since that race last year.
