I plan to hit this again. Can anything be done to allow entrance in return for a few photos? I thought we had that setup last year but no one knew of it. Let me know please! Thanks!

You're too late to sign up for Saturday. Sunday still has a few spots open. You should have signed up when I told you.

It's an incredible time, well worth the trip at whatever cost. Also, if anyone wants to shoot after on either day, let me know. I will have all my gear with me.

Well unless you register now you more then likely won't have a slot. I was debating on it but will more then likely just spectate this go around. Hopefully by next year I'll have all my ducks in a row from mods to safety stuff.

I ran 155.89. I was a little disappointed but we learned a lot and will be back next year to go faster. I've got a good friend building a TT Viper that I'm very interested to see how he does.

I really think being at 2200 ft. hurt the power of the car at least some.
