You know me Paulie, I'll be there, I dont have the dates yet for that race hopefully is not the same dates as the race in Ecuador, you should come with us to that one too. Dorian It was nice meeting you, and after a year I think that car deserved at least new body mounts lol...

Made it back to Dallas safely yesterday. Took 13 hours to get back home from Joliet. The road got long a few times and Five-O was everywhere along the route back.

I had a blast at my first ever Byron's Challenge race. Got my butt handed to me on 200mm TC (like I thought) but it was a learning experience. Third place in the C-main wasn't too bad depending that I have not race 200mm TC in over 2 years (yea, great time to come out of TC retirement). The TC crowd is way faster than they were when I last ran mine. I will have to work on stepping up my game to hopefully be more competitive in the future.

Not too bad of a showing I had in GT. Need to tighten up my game more there to qualify for the A-main next time instead of bumping up to it. The GT competition was pretty stiff and you had to earn your spot because nobody was giving you anything.

I would like to thank Ron/Byron's for sponsoring a great race as well as Scott for providing an excellent facility to host the race. A special thanks to Mike Lyday, Mike Nelson, and Mark B for all their hospitality and made all of us feel like we were at home racing.

It was nice to see some familiar faces (some in which I haven't seen in a while) and put some faces to some names. Nice meeting you Solara and having some good conversation later in the weekend. It was great meeting Gonzo, Jose, and several others I bumped into over the race weekend. But, I have to give a special thanks/shout out to my Memphis brother Sid Rhodes. He sacrificed a lot of his free time to be my pit man for most of my GT runs and was great in pitting me in my mains. Without him, I would not have finished as well as I did in GT.

Mike,
Any chance they will post the results of the mains online with the lap times. I know my top 20 results but I just wanted to look over the lap to lap times. I look forward to running with you again next year. Hopefully we will be bring more guys with us from Texas next year. A race to keep in mind is the Gulf Coast Grand Prix in Nov. in Houston at Gulf Coast Raceway.
Chad
