You know for me the tire situation really isn't a factor being I doubt I could tell the difference in tire, but then again I might. Like some have said I'm just excited to race this race. And for the races prior to the Reedy I have gotten a handful of different tires, Jaco (blues), sorex 36, and 32, and some other brand I can't think of right now. So i think for the guys such as myself that haven't driven a whole lot of on-road stuff a tire may not make a big difference, but some of you regulars might disagree. So getting a set up under my TC3 is what I'm focusing on, and a tire will be a tire in my mind.

The only useful tips Clint can give are how to fit into a tight black dress.

I think the basic information that we don't have right now (like general rules) is what we really need, and probably should have had when the entry forms came out.

Tires and handout motor announcements are delayed a lot of times because of supply/distribution problems, so I almost expect that at any big race.

All in all, I'm really looking forward to comming down. The reedy race has always been a race I've always wanted to go to. Now that I have the chance to go, I'm totally stoked haha.

Well put.... and have a safe journey to Roseville you will be impressed with the facility! Also I ran at Speedworld last weekend for the warm-up race...and I have a decent setup. Check you PM for my email address.

See ya in 36 days.

Hey Clint, maybe if you relive that moment you might lure Randy over for some practice! Like Rob Base once said " it takes two to make a thing go right".

i'm not the smartest guy on the internet, but with the announcement of the new tire coming from the guy that owns the track where the reedy race will be held, I just kinda figured the left hand knew what the right hand was up to.

btw, how ya been. liking the off road stuff?

can't hurt to ask. It would be in their best interest. We gonna be there through Sunday anyway. The extra class would bring more revenue and fill out the classes. I for one would love to run RCGT, but given a choice between classes I choose 13.5. It was a hard choice. RCGT is a lot of fun and has brought a lot of life back to touring car. I think it would very positive to allow it.

Aww, ok, I must say that you were the best looking 6+ foot black man I've ever seen in a dress. (besides Dennis Rodman I guess)

I'm gonna run the warm up race down here next weekend, you should come down for it!
