Andy….

This sounds like a great fun race/event. I will see how many Roadrunner members I can get to caravan down. I will be there for sure.

Will there be power available or should we bring our own?

There will be some power there, but just in case, i say bring some. I also have genies for you if you need some power Mr. Pres! Maybe have another VIP section for the Road Runners.

That's great news. Not only you can race, you can also see the evolution of Toyota from the early 60's to present. A lot of Old Skool cars and trucks will be there plus Toyota normally brings out some of the collections from the Toyota Museum to showcase at the show. It is a nice venue with great scenery. I'm sure everybody will have fun.

MARVIN....90% of the races that start in the AM start at about 10:00am. Just figure you should be at ALL races at about 7:00am. Remember...at Corona, La Mirada, Fusion, Crystal Park, and Longbeach, you want to be there by 7:00AM.

Cool man...Leg is ok...im trying to get through the week. I think teh ebst rule of thumb for weekend morning/afternoon races are that they generally start at 10-11. Night races start about 6-7. Just be there early...you always come late with your dad!

yeah unfortunately he works weekends at night so its hard for him to drive at while he's sleepy. i dont have another car or licence to go there earlier lol. But its ok hopefully he can work weekdays instead of weekends lol. glad to hear your leg is better. later see u this weekend at corona. by the those girls that work there dont know nothing, cause i went there to buy a body 4 my tc4 & gave her the part number & she couldnt find it on the computer & said "it doesn't exist in our computer system" when i gave her the part number, i found it but still i worked at best buy before & i would always ask the manager or co worker if couldn't find something or i'd get fired if i said something like that. lol oh well i'd go to ultimate hobbies but its to far just 4 a body lol.
