Doc / Gus thanks for pitting the car. You both got a work out .... Stupid Engine.

Fun pitting with 1*Speedy and Andy, you guys made great progress with the Xray car.

Nice to race and pit with the Utah aka "Spooky Clan"

To all the Holigans - Nice to put some faces with the posts

To all who made this event happen - THANKS! See you next year!
You too Big G...........see you next year for sure, we should have enough time to sort out our little demons and get a stonking good race for all....how about a 20 car main just for kicks and giggles ??

Mark, I thought you were getting even with me for short pitting you in Houston. Always fun to hang out and race with you. Look forward to our next time.

Is it bad that I am already prepping for next years race? hehehe
What an amazing experience. My first big race and I must say it has made a lasting impression. Going into this event as rookie as could be I had no expectations but a good time. I went for experience and oh boy did I get it! I learned tons from my fellow racers like Andy and received all kinds of positive feedback from the factory drivers. From all of the positive encouragement I came out with a finish I still cant believe. Just being on the driver stand with guys like Paolo, Mike L, Andy Liu, Gus Wood, Clete and the rest of the Amain crew was a truly humbling experience! I wish I had a picture of my face prior to the start of the race because my face was soooo sore from smiling. We went out put on a show and had one heck of a time. Thanks to everyone who helped me out and paved the way for my success at an amazing race! I truly respect those of you who came down to help me out and give me words of encouragement. Until next time!

T-Hawk is always a ray of sunshine.......

Just 2 days before the MAYAN END OF TIME, he reminds us of the reason to keep those GT cars track-ready. TIMEZONE GP 2013 !!!!!!!!!

JACKO......get the Dremel out......I think you need 11 ports !!!!!!!

Someone tell 'Bruce' I'll bring a loaner for him if he wants to tackle GT.

Best wishes for Clete, Mike and all you guys up there that started this FUNFEST at Rick's place. One of my favorite memories is remembering Mark's voice on the P.A. system saying 'and jerry has picked up another position'.

Watching Paulo at the most recent Timezone GP was worth the price of admission to see how a GT can perform.

You guys and gals up there 'be well'...........T-Hawk got the adrenaline going again........\\>

Good to see Brad is on top of things too....
