I will be there for this event. I have ran it in the past. Leisure is also a topnotch track and facility. It should be an awesome time.

I think I might go to it this year (I live close enough to go, it's just that I need to make way out there, would you agree with me Chris and Dayton?) I will run 4wd mod.

(If you didn't know I am Mike J. )

We just talked it over and....LiPo's WILL be legal in all mod classes.

We will have a minimum weight for each class.

There you go guys, no more excuses!
