Shane might? I don't know. If not, I am somewhat planning on going at this point, so if I end up being there and futureal isn't doing anything, I'll get a thread going on here.

For those that don't know about the race, it is this weekend at S&N Trackside in Milwaukee, Wi. If you haven't been to trackside before, anyone will tell you it is a top notch racing facility with the best in the business running it and announcing ( Scotty Ernst ). www.trackside.com

I'm planning to be there. I won't be doing a full site coverage thing like I have recently, but I will keep a sticky thread here with standings updates and information, and links to Trackside's website. I might do photos on the mains day depending on how tired I am and who all is there.

With the ROAR Carpet Nats less than a month away now, there will be plenty of upcoming race coverage as well.

Josh - It had a slight push off corner. I didn't want to adjust it right before the main, and practice, I was just trying to get used to the car. The Mazda body is supposed to push exiting the corner anyways, so I guess I'll just have to adjust it until I get my stratus from home.

I didn't know, but talking around the pits, thats what everyone was telling me, that the body generally has good turn in, but has a slight push exiting. I know I can make up for it in the chassis, but like I said, I was more working on getting used to the car on it's firsrt run.
