    followed by more consumption, drinking, another round of burnouts, and some drinking...

    almost forgot, there will be a purging competition at the rear of the lot around 3:30 every morning, so be sure to bring a fresh pair of shoes

    Seems to me the track "opened" at around 3 or 3:30 and the first race rolled through the starting lights at 5. Zackly how much stuff you real racers got to unload? :eek: I took the ezup, the lawn chairs, the cooler, and the tool box out of the trunk in about 10 minutes, and I was moving pretty slow. I was moving pretty slow on the strip too, :rolleyes: but thats a different story.:D Looking to break into the teens this year (vs 20 somethings last year).... Did I just type that out loud?

    I think alot of people's time worries are "clouded" by the curtailed racing last year from the power outage at the track.

    What time did we race into the evening the years before? I don't remember what time it was when Triumph Terror made it back to the Ramada with Tman's flashlight taped on his bike for a headlite....

    I hear ya. By noon Saturday the cobwebs have cleared and I'm itching to get to going. Too wired to hang out at the hotel. I can't relax until I'm messing around with something at the track.
     
  23. Seems to me that we hit the road around 10:30ish?

    i dunno if Carl will let anyone on the grounds between like 11am and 2pm'ish. . . historicaly, he boots those campin at the track out those hours so his track and grounds teams can ramp up and get ready for us to race

    I talked to carl and it aint him keepin us out...and I dont see what is wrong with hangin out there . Ill even help carl around the track if he needs it, but id like to have time to look at the shit for sale , get the car ready and visit with the (drag racers) at the track.......but Ill be there whenever we get in.......cause the reason for buildin a purpose built race car is to race.......
