    Default Simply can't catch a break....

    Not only are they calling for thunderstorms Friday through Sunday (which means no chance of racing), they are calling for thunderstorms Thursday (all day) which is when the Power tour will be rolling through town.

    This summer is turning out to be the worst summer for nice weather that I can remember.

    We finally got one in!

    I will tell you this right now though, I will never double enter one car while still racing another in a different class again, at least not without any pit help. Talk about mentally stressful! Not to mention running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. Heck, I couldn't even find the time to analize my tickets between runs! I was also thrown into having to thrash to fix a surprise brake problem. It was an experience for sure, but the next day, my body felt like I had ran a marathon!

    With that being said, I can hardly wait until Saturday!:D

    Looks you were trying to make up for all those rain outs, and bit off a little than you could chew. I can't say that I can blame you!

    Well, the screen name and the year of the Dart are right. If the Dart is a beautiful, straight, purple, all steel racecar, that could double as a show car, then you better be some posting some pics!

    ETA: Don't forget to stop by the "New Members" thread and introduce yourself.

    50% chance of thunderstorms according to most weather stations. BUT, unless we have pop ups (entirely possible), it looks like everything in IL. is going to slide south of us. Getting ready to head that way now, we shall see........:confused:
