I'm going to VIR in May.

I was supposed to go to a 1/4 track yesterday, but the threat of rain stopped that...and of course it didn't rain. My nerves are shot at the moment anyway...

I would do it if convenient, but it's not my main goal and I won't drive 8 hours to do it. I think they are building a place up near Chicago...so I might do that once.

The car is just so darn purty. I couldn't stand the idea of scratching it up at a track. But that is just me.

Stay away from the wall! :lol:

Ran at road America last summer and will probably do it again this summer.

Was a blast and burned a tank of gas in 45 minutes.

Wow Dave your up early this morning......feeding the Goats....?
Funny you should say that. Our dog...er...uh...goat actually burps after she eats...funniest thing you ever will see. She does it every time, sometimes louder than others. I'll have to see if I can get it on video and post it for the "Sunday night show". :banana_hitit:

Well, after enduring a few long, winding roads with a couple of vettes in a cruise, I'll stick to the dragstrip myself. Lots of fun, but my car is not set up for road courses. I know that now...
