We have a connection here, TRACKSIDE!
Uhhhh, guys, someone should tell Matt the race is at The Gate, not Trackside! He's 335 miles too far west!

Qualifying starts at Friday @ 11am? Man, maybe I should leave tomorrow instead.....

Track already has tons of grip. More steering than most rugs I have ran on. The normal expected people are fast with nobody stand out fast yet. THis is my first time to this track, so I cannot compare it to the Indoor Champs practice track, but I can say that it is a very nice place, big track, but as usual I have one complaint........PARAGON! This stuff should be BANNED from racing!!!!

The new odorless paragon is already out.....one of the local shop owners had some at regionals. We didn't get to use it, but it was pretty much odorless. It still had a slight smell, but wasn't a super strong wintergreen.....

Wasn't there an odorless version already. Odorless usually means less effective.

Is Matt at the same track as everyone? Maybe he's so Paragon high that he thinks he somewhere else!!!

Default Any Pics yet?????

How soon until we get to see some pics of the track and the action??? Comon Shane its not like you are racing or have 1000 other things to do....lol.

First report I have heard the track is building traction and the only problem part is right in front of the driver's stand. The carpet seems to be bunching up a liitle with corner that is laid out there.....they say its a high speed section so that might have something to do with it. But Im sure the Gate "keepers" will have this worked out and everything else is running nicely from what I have heard. Good luck to all the guys that made it out there from around here.

Working on it, unfortunately because of my connection problems earlier I never had a chance to do any photo work, my practice is over and all my cars barely work (same old same old, haha) so I think I'm going to focus on this side of things for awhile.
