Yes thank god, no PARAGON!!! Jack the Gripper is deffinitely a better choice as far as the smell is concerned. I can't say how it works for I have not tried it out yet but do have some.

Goop you are correct.

Paragon is not allowed. Corally jumped on board . 1 can of Jack the Gripper will be provided to each driver.

Will be provided?!!! I wish I had know that or I would not have bought any!! Just kidding, I wanted to try it out before the race anyhow. If it works well maybe I'll be able to score left overs after the race for those that have to fly back home!!

We used it for the Novak Race (U.S. touring car championship) this year and it worked VERY good. There was no putrid odor. The bite didnt get crazy by the mains, like in years past.

220 drivers ? Wow !!! There will be over 18 groups ( A, B,C,..... R ).

Lets say if I'm in group B during heat #1 , my next turn ( heat 2) could be 2 hours later !! Wow, enough time to have snacks at the Caesar Palace's Forum, eat ice creams at the Strip, and back to StarDust.

Hey, if you guys meet Scotty Ernst, Say Hello from Indonesia !!!

Probably more like 5 hours due to the fact a lot of drivers are racing more than one class and 12th scale is 8 minutes.

Gonna be a long time to play around between heats.

The best part about Margarita night, there will be no drinking and driving!! We can by monorail passes, catch it from across the street from the Stardust and head down the strip to Margaritaville!!! Oh, the other thing is, YOU CAN GET DRINKS TO GO!!!
