Cool. I'm looking forward to the race. Hopefully everyone will be on their best behavior and we'll all have a great time. I plan to! Controlled practice sounds great.

Is there any word on the number of entries in Mini?

Hey Mike, is that Steve's 414 for sale at the track on the board?

Steve, how can you make all those predictions without having one 'Sconsin representative?

For Mini, you gotta go with Jesse Shapiro. He can't get the trip to Japan if he wins, so I think he'll finally pull things together. Either him, Or Doc Mertes.

Controlled practice would be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday if there is any.

Hey Rod my good luck charm was Hageman razzing me starting Monday when I arrived. He kept asking me what color my King of the Hill car was, after all his sh** I just had to go and prove it. haha.
Whomever does win if the Subaru is an option don't fall for it the EVO's had BIG motor in them.

Last I heard for entries on Mini was around 40. The numbers look good to break attendance records

Not sure if it was typical Jesse but he said he was done with Mini last year and was going to run F1 this year. You lucky F1 guys. He might with the double entry though.

I dropped by Tamiya yesterday, looks like the Tamiya 23T Type RR are tagged and ready. We are allowed to buy a certain number type B tires to make it fair for everyone. For GT1, no more than five complete sets, and F201.........I forgot.

Lol KOH...I'll go into it like I did at the Reedy Race, I plan on running only 6 times that weekend (4 quals + 2 wins) hehe. However, others will make it VERY difficult to accomplish that hehe

KOH, if they are the same cars that they used at the Tamiya Con demo, the Mistu is the way to go. The Acura is okay but stay away from the Mustang...it's slow and ugly...what a perfect combination!

Why is Mini so competitive? Must be because you can run a second class with it.
