I was gonna say: "Your worst nightmare....." but I have to run against them too in the late session ,,,.so that would be anti-smack talk. They have forgotten more about car preparation than I will ever know and I have "great" old cars. I have never "clayed" any car and they did it to a new one built in Germany for Ford. Geesh. They got rid of an STi because it was too slow. They were finalists in "the most interesting couple in the world". They kill pests for a living so don't piss them off.

Damn from UK. (I mean Dan) You want a piece out of S1?

You were only a couple tenths behind my "race car" in S2 yesterday. You did good in our "daily driver" in S3 last time out.

The Mayor (end of season). Next year will get ugly for some people.

Help! That's what I need. Maybe I can hire some goons to break Joe's kneecaps?

I sprayed him on his neck with my tire bottle once not knowing it was 120F and that distracted him...oops. Thought it would cool him off. He doesn't drive very fast with neck blisters or hot tires.

If you weren't paying attention (and why would you), you might not have noticed that the Late Session of this event is a little light. 36 drivers is "enough" to cover all of our work positions, but just barely. So, if you're one of those people who might usually see an "early" work assignment in the afternoon... you might not this time. Experienced corner captains were in high demand!

Early Session is the opposite story. It's maxed out with plenty of workers!

Should be a great day! Don't forget to wear sunscreen.

If you're putting me out on a corner don't expect any running.

I never expect any running out of anyone over the age of 60. :) Y'all are usually corner captains if I have to put you out there. Make the young'n's run!
