They have normal practice on Friday anyway. I will check to see if they will include it to the MWS without extra charge. I think normal practice fee is only $7 anyway.

the 7 fee does not bother me... I just do not want to drive 70+ miles one way for 5:30pm to 10:30pm practice... I would prefer something like 10:00am or 11:00am....

I have to break in motors, (just ask Ira and Rick about this.. ) and I need time to let them cool down, then back out, cool down back out... This will be an all day event alone... Going this weekend is another option....

Are people going out this weekend? Saturday is much better for me. why you ask... The Bears play and my wife is glued to the TV, so getting out that day is much better... But Sunday for a race makes since... Anyone going? If not, I will go on Saturday so I can stay out of other's way on the track....

I do not know about that one... I agree he may have been up there, but passing is another issue all together... Remember you have to have a clean pass or you are in the pits with a stop and go....

Look I as hoping just like you, he would pull it out, but that tire change with 2laps up on the field and Josh said he was not ready for it, did not help... Josh thought he had one more lap until Paul was coming in... Either way, it was a great race with Toso and Paul coming back.

I think the USA are going to have to shake these luck issues...

By the way, if you run in 2010, I will pit for you... Remember 2010 the Nitro worlds are in the USA...
