Is the SIR date a for sure thing? If so does anyone know when the rest of the schedule is coming out?
Fred deserves a break for sure, the nats are always a trial by fire, but I was just curious if they had worked out the where and when for next season

The other thing that Fred changed for this year that was a huge improvement over last....

A 95% long speedweek Not having to thrash so much made for a much more relaxing week

Hey thanks for the present!

As for the TCS series, my last 2 cents........

Lets leave Fred alone for the next two weeks and let him concentrate at having fun "racing" at the KO Propo race in a couple of weekends at Tamiya. Then we can go back to bugging him. (Don't worry Fred, I will get out of your way when you go to lap me for the third or fourth time.)
I usually just put them away. Don't sell them unless they are extras. I cannot wait to have the room to make them into shelf queens, although my office is looking pretty empty at work...

I am looking forward to seeing sneek peeks and an early schedule for next year. If Fred takes a break for KO that is cool, then after that gotta crack the whip..

Looks like my company is going to the every-other-Friday off schedule, so with any luck the race weekends will align with my new schedule and I will be able to make a few more next year.

Hopefully we'll see something posted before Christmas so we can book those tickets. Last year things moved a little slow, most likely because of the instability with a few of the locations. I'd like to make it out to SIR next year, but I really need to see how the other races fall out before committing to a $350 ticket.

Big ditto on that, Bill. With the way things are with the airlines thse days, it's a whole lot more likely that we'll be able to use frequent flyer miles if we know well in advance. Last year I spent cash for tickets to Cincy, Milwaukee, Aliso and Seattle because it was too late to get a ticket on miles. Sheesh. Nice to know that Seattle has their date already...

Brad,
It's just that with your constant presence here and the fact that you informed the world of your impending fatherhood and therefore you would not be in Aliso, I didn't expect you and guess I didn't feel I missed you. I was already set-up for the big let-down.
Have you decided on Me or U yet? btw, congratulations!

Wasnt the same without me was it (probably more enjoyable)
I think those names only work with twins, and as far as I know that isnt the case this time around. I have already told the Mrs, that I will be attending the nats next year, providing they are still in August. Also planning on running Cinci and Scottys if they are not back to back.
