Tyree's Sauce works
Simple Green sorta works

As far as which one works best...it's up to personal preference
So basically, what ever you put on, it will work.

I can understand his feelings. This was my first time to compete in the TCS, and I'm heading to California for the Nats. Can't wait!

Still, it's an awfully long way to go to get my rear end handed to me.

Oh well, this is all about fun, right?

Kevin-
Troy didn't win Mini?
I thought he was one of your guys!
What class are you running at the Nats? How many Burienites are going to make the trip?

Neal-
Yes, I am excited. Mostly because I'll get to see you run in KOH!
Later

Sure , let everyone psych themselves right out of contention.
It would be really cool if someone came out of nowhere and beat the speculation.
