See everyone on Monday

I just picked up my used CRC GEN X10 LE, maybe you can take a look at it, it's my first pan car, I know it's a carpet car, but I'd like to set it up for outdoor tracks too.

I live in Orlando so I'll be stopping by to see some of the action.

Pan cars are very good outdoors as well, just need the proper setup and tires.

The biggest difference from last year is that you can not straight line the chicane any more.

Hello from the Snonbirds. Practice going great. The track grooved up about 2 hrs into the first day.

Many Thanks to all the Sponsors and races that are here at the 2011 Snonbird Nationals.
