Got the track ready today, Banners, Flags, blew the track off (twice)

The Big Boys are showing up, Swauger came in yesterday, Tosolini and Cyrul today, European racer Ricky V came in today as well.

It was hot about 80 degrees.

We were going to spray the track and have some open practice but Mother Nature was threating with some liquid sunshine at about 1:30 so we decided to hold off and wait to see what would happen, well about 4:00 the sky finally cleared but the sun was already on way the down.

Tomorrow (sunday) we are going to spray the track first thing (8:00) open the track for practice. Probably run controlled practice all day.

Would you like to see some video from tomorrow ??

Default RCTVLIVE will be there

Guys we got your email. WE will be there shooting video and doing interviews

As Jim likes us to call it we will be covering the Winterchamps as Jeff likes to refer to the race as. We put a zapper on him so from now on he will get a shock when he call it the wrong name

Look forward to seeing everyone. Linda

Default Pictures from Sunday

Below are some pictures taken at different times during the day on Sunday's first day of practice. It appears that everything went real smooth and everyone seemed to be enjoying Ft. Myers great hospitality and warm weather.

#1: A view of the early morning drivers stand with just a few drivers
#2: The famous flat out chicane on left and the wicked high speed esses on the right.
#3: A view of the, now crowded, drivers stand a few hours later. Check out Josh Cyrul wrapping his arm around the pole to be able to oprate the wheel on his radio!
#4: The famous back straight, that is anything but straight, at Ft. Myers.
#5: David Larry and Julian Hope, from race control, keeping everyone in line and on best behavior.

Default Covered pit areas

The covered pit areas are where some of the best bench racing, jokes and stretched truths take place.

Here are 5 random pictures from the scene. I hope you get to see some of your friends in the shots.
