Everyone else, I am sure you will love the track, facility, and fun racing.

Chris,

This is standard issue with some people. They show up on the threads and bash against races they never intended on going to in the first place.

I do not understand it my self.

But i do look forward to my first time to mike's and the track layout looks great. Can not wait to smell paragon again it has been way to long LOLOLOLOL


See ya Friday!!

Mike

I just got my pulsar 3 to be 8.49 max and now I need to reset it. it took a month of fussing with it to get it there. and I'm not sure what my thunderpower reads as it was always under 8.50 for sure. I might have to buy a new charger to get to run.
Do you think the extra one hundredth of a volt is going to make a difference?

Ah, this guy is planning on coming... he signed up at least. Track layout took at least 100 man hours from myself, a kid that runs offroad and wanted extra cash, Mike, AWD, Robert Bell and a few that stuck it out for a few hours ha. Repainted all boards, put up counter sunk flappers, retaining wall, layed out green carpet in dead areas, and have vacuumed at least 6 times so that the groove that was there before wont be a big deal. The layout is gorgeous and anyone that will see it in person can agree. The paragon smell is amazing. See ya Friday.

Can't wait. Thanks for all the hard work. I know once we get into the flow of things at the races we forget to think about all the hard work some people put in to make the race what it is. That you can not bitch about..

Thanks to every one of you.

See ya.

Mike

smelling paragon at 6am in the morning is almost better than coffee.

I was at the 2000 Carpet Nats in Clearwater, can't wait to do it again in D-town in 2012.

I've been to 4 races at mikes, they always do a great job.

Regards!

Sam
