    Wish I could afford to just tag along and take photos. Not in the budget this time though.

    Well seeing it is that close my buddy Gary will most likely run his 66 Lemans in it again. Maybe I can make time to cruise with him . He loves this event. But going out to the east coast did not interest him one bit. Larry

    I did a quick search for the entry dates but nothing came up. I know it sells out in a matter of minuets. When do they usually take the entries?

  14. I don't know why they picked byron. It's been up for sale. The state made a offer that was turned down. The state wants to return the track to a forest. The track borders one now and they want to expand it. It's a gamble on the track being around next year. I would think the grove would have been the safer bet.

    Maybe it was chosen to give publicity to the situation?

  16. My son and I are in, we built a car for 2019 but he changed jobs and we had to postpone. All we need now is to win the registration game. ;)

  20. Your close to were the ferry crosses the lake. Look into that to save time not having to go south through chicago then back north. There are two ferry's. One goes to milwaukee the other manitawalk. The milwaukee boat is faster but puts you farther south. It won t be cheap with a trailer.

    I will have to wait till registration time to make a decision. Job is looking a little iffy. But then again, so is my health. We will see. The only thing for sure is my truck will be ready to go again (it pretty much is now).
