I had fun on Saturday. I hate it that I did not make it back yesterday, but had to fulfill some pastoral duties with a member that was hospitalized. Congrats to GG, Steve and Ed.

Next year they need a class for four-cylinder RWD cars. Or maybe I should bring the GMC longbed since there didn't seem to be much truck competition- LOL!

What did Ed win? The hot dog eating contest?

All you needed was some sticky tires. Your driving was good.

Thanks to all who came out to help. We had a good event. I'll be posting more info. on the results soon.

Ed hasn't posted anything in a while. He's either still affected by heartburn from all them hot dogs, or depressed about the vette's poor results at Daytona.
And the worst part is he can't even go for a drive to cheer himself up, since his car is not even street legal anymore. Sucks to be you, "meng".
Esteve
