    And one of the best things about this event is that you can cruise the track.

    Thanks for the pics Binga. You must have been there very early or it was a lot quieter than what I remember it from previous years. First year we've missed it for awhile. Great venue and great event.

  22. Thanks for all the comments

    Swifty it's the first time that I have been to the nats but all the people that I talked to said that it was a little bit quieter than previous years.

    And yes Scott and I were so early the gates hadn't opened............:eek:
     
  23. Ok that has got to suck.

    What happened?
