I go the the first and last event of the one lap of America every year because the Tire Rack is about 20 minutes from my house.

Sat May 6th and is the Wet Skidpad test and Saturday May 13th is the Dry skidpad.

Anyone else going to stop in?

I had a great time at the TireRack Saturday.

The competition at this event is getting much more serious and professional. In a way it is a little sad because the shade tree mechanic is having a much more difficult time being competitive.

I saw a Tube frame Viper with a turbocharged 350 Chevy for power, Mopar guys got to be irritated by that?

One of the TireRack employees is running a Honda Odessey Mini-van. It's actaully pretty cool, very tastefull fender flares, fat tires and slightly lowered. It seems to be faily competitive too.

I was really pumped on Saturday because I finally took my Stealth to the dragstrip the night before, best time was 12.84 @107 MPH. I am still unsing stock injectors so I ran out of fuel. My favorite run was a 14.4 sec quarter with a 2.5 sec 60foot:D I had a awesome AWD burnout through all of first gear, I was getting pretty sideways before I shifted into second. I was having so much fun that I ignored the fact that Iwas going slow:)

The Tire rack was a great time today, here are some videos are cars trying to burn the roubber completly off at the very end. The Suburau STI doing AWD donuts is my favorite
