Hope that helps,

Weather is good today. Time is 7:15. Track is scheduled to open at 8:00. Full day of controlled practice. The qualifying will be seeded by the drivers fastest three consecutive practice laps times.

Thanks Jim, miss you out here. Your Mugen boys are running well.

Kinda cloudy. No rain expected for today.

Good day, humid, fun and lots to watch.

Thanks Robert. It will be nice when Live RC gets here.

There are twenty guys running really fast. Focus is moving toward final motor selection and qualifying game plan, tire type and such. Most chassis decisions have been made.

Controlled practice is continuing. No real changes. By the end of tomorrow there should be a pretty solid picture of who is ready to shred. Weather has been hot and humid, but, dry today. Tomorrow is 40% chance of showers/thunderstorms. Monday - Friday shows a daily 50% chance of showers/thunderstorms.
