Thanx for the kind words. We'll be making the 5 hour drive. I'll need the next 4 weeks to recover, my arms are killing me. The Manual Chevette rack got a workout as did I.

I may come down from Richmond to watch a bit, as well as go to the DSE open house, but I have to head home on Saturday evening. I'll be heading to Baja Sunday for the Pre-run of the 1000 thanks to BFGoodrich!

On a side note, it looks like I'll be able to play at quite a few of these in 2014, as I just picked up a 71 Corvette, and I'm putting the list of mods together already! :jump:

We hope to see you guys at Charlotte! Hopefully Cheryl has better luck. Been testing the last couple weeks on both Crusher and the C10 truck. Seem to have found a small change that made a big improvement to both of them. Would like to set some fast times before Scottsdale.

48hr is already on the west coast, Bret and 33 will be getting prepared for SEMA. I'm not sure if Jason has picked out which car he is going to drive to Charlotte yet. I know he has been playing with the old Impala since its overhaul.......
Before Overhaul - 83761

Last year, I think most of the people driving in with cars from GG got at least one voucher per car for a free meal.

But hey, $5 BBQ plate, and it goes to charity anyways. Its a win-Win.
At the speedway, 20oz drinks are $4.00......:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

I think last year, we left the speedway around 4......
It is about 45min away.

Hey Brent,

I checked the weather yesterday. Friday and Satuday morning temp is to be 30.......

30 degree temp + BFG SportComp2 = Whoa Nelly....:drive1::6gears:

1966longroof
10-21-2013, 03:07 PM
Randy, 30 degrees....and your point is??? You'll have them sticky half-way thru each run. At least your SP2's are wider than mine. The weatherman here said it will be 50's -60's during the afternoon?

Additionally, I guess I should have been more specific about DSE. I was referring to the Voucher that GG gives.

Sam and I are really leaning toward driving the 66 Chevelle down if I can get someone to cover my shift at work on Sunday. Probably camp right there by the track too. Brrrrr!

LOL!!

I just found out about two hours ago that I blew a heater core........Dangit!!
It is out, and I will hopefully put the new one in tomorrow.

I don't like wrenching this close to an event.

Hey where have you been?

Goodguy Ed
10-22-2013, 02:04 PM
Hey guys, this is the last east coast event to bring a qualifier to the big shootout in Scottsdale so it is going to be an all out fight to the end cold or not. Remember Tim and Cheryl are not in and Stacy is still just in with points and she wants in with a win!!!

Should be good to see how this plays out.

I will be out at the event and at DSE as I have not been able to do Goodguys Charlotte in years because of SEMA. look me up.
