    Paper work. Planned to travel with Matt with the 41 Pontiac, he has an oil leak after fixing the timing chain. We have not left the track yet. IMG_20190909_122456998.jpeg IMG_20190909_122505855.jpeg IMG_20190909_141650134.jpeg

  2. You'll be driving right through my old home town of Bowie MD.

    Leaving after rush hour may be a good idea
     
  3. X2:confused:

    WTOP (FM 103.3 and WTOP.com) provides real-time Washington DC-area weather & traffic every 10 minutes on the 8's.

  5. Not sure you could hear it while cruising, even if you had a radio.

  11. 10.33 , solid pass again. Maybe get some rest today.
     
  12. McMopar that drive sucks on a normal day. I worked at a ford dealership in MD on 301 and had to go straight north on 301 10 miles to get home. A normal drive was 35-45 minutes. I hate visiting family in the area because of traffic

    If you are in need of garage space after your run at MIR on Thursday, have A.C. and a concrete floor. Only two miles off 301. About thirty miles south of MIR.

    I've felt your pain. Have you ever been in Chicago around 5:00? A 60 mile commute took me around 3 1/2 hours.

  19. Four years ago the drive from st.louis took us through Chicago. We went around o'hare then out to the west suburbs. Of course this was rush hour. We worked our way out to lake Geneva for a photo stop. The Chrysler 300 got its rt front headlight frenched in. One of the cars in our group over heated. We left the track by noon and didn't arrive at our hotel until 10pm. That was fun. Anyone that says these cars are not street cars doesn't know better. To pull off this event they have to be able to handle all conditions. Comfort that's another story.

  20. Lucky any major city has its share.


    I saw today's drive was less than 200 miles so hopefully the competitors get some rest before Atco
     
  21. I watched Jim make his run on U Tube. a bit slower than yesterday. However it was a different track.
     
  22. Some pics from hot rods website...

  23. Sure sucks for the swedish guys. Last year their car got caught up in customs causing them to miss the event. This year they crashed it.

    5:50 am wake up call this morning, a loud car trying to get started outside the window...perfect timing, ten minutes before my alarm was set to. We visited Matt's son's family last night, had a good time, and are fresh and ready for another day. Hope to be able to leave a little bit later in the day today, catch some more time at the race enjoying the fun.
