    Save the guilt for the times when you deserve it.

    A mans got to do what a mans got to do. No worries. You, like many of the rest of us have been through some bad shit in the last year or so. Things will get better. The HAMB family has got your back as well as each other's. Maybe when they run again the stars will align and I'll be able to attend as a spectator.

    You made the right decision. Covid isn't done yet.

    I’ll never fault a guy for putting family first. I’m 60 now, and have regrets about not always doing that when my boys were young. It’s a very small window of time. I say enjoy it while you can.

    AWW, WHAT?!

    But this was the year I was gonna kinda' start thinking about maybe making plans to start getting my car ready and looking at hotels and maybe talk to the family about going in a year or two.

    Guess I'll have to put it off until next year, maybe...

    Hahaha! Have fun!

    Family first!
    I’d like to see it moved closer to east just this year.
    Plenty of small drag strips around.

    Crowds?

    I didn't know the HAMB Drags were in Michigan this year.

    Why the funny looks? C'mon bruthas it's an inside joke, work with me here...o_O

    Sincerely though, never fault a man doing for his family. This isn't such a big official deal that your "management team" runs in the absence of the leader. It's a hangout event. I'm sure most will get over it just fine and smile in the fact of Ryan handling his fam.

    But c'mon, I'm not the only one who thought the Michigan thing was funny am I?

    Last August Mokan had a replacement event called the Spam Drags, and it was great fun. I hope they do the same event this year.

    I retired so I could do this...they will just be a year older next year and bet they hold air until then.
    Have fun with your alignment
     
  20. Yeah? It'll give you another year to kiss and sleep with that Yahoo cup 'cause me and my 34 are comin' for it!
    BOOM!

    Yeah I'm bummed, but it's cool, I totally get it. Do the family thing. See ya next year. Maybe do two events in 2022? Bring back the Revolution or do another one at an old drive in.
