+1. If there is I'll be driving down from Penn State. The website says practice starts at 3:00, but the calendar says 5:00. Who should I believe?

I'm not sure yet what is wrong. That transponder is a beat up one I bought used so it might have wire issues. Its pretty ragged out looking. My fast lap was a 10.5 with carpet rubber tires on and Ray K ran a 10.2 with the new EXP asphalt tires. They where good for 2 to 3 tenths a lap faster than the carpet EXP 36s I used.

Got back to State around 10:00 tonight. Tonight was a blast, and I gotta thank everyone for putting up with me learning the track. I had approx. zero front traction and off throttle steering was non existent. And that jump on the backstretch is a pain! It was easier to split it up rather than single the whole thing. The E-buggies were clearing it no problem though.

I also need to thank the excellent corner marshals we had!
