Looks to me like S1 and S4 are equals as CS and ES "only". I'm not showing up in S1 with my CS car against my BS car in S1 car anymore than a person will show up with an HS car against an ES car. Fun only goes so far.

There is ONLY one "Fill Up" in this group who everyone wants to beat (compare times to) and he can't keep my properly prepared CS (S1) car out of the dirt twice at Marion Airport. Can you Farm Truck??

Push Harder - Drive as close to the limit of your tires as possible.
Suck Less - Drive something resembling a proper racing line.

Well yeah. Once it (loren) gets my wife sorted out as my guest/ballast? It's my Father's Day Eve present. The only groin man in S1 again. Time to see if my 2 year old tires are still viable on tiny rims. Come and see. :geek:

Loren is the king of Ponzi schemes and fixed our entry. We have also bribed Ron for the FTD. LG.

Unfortunately those of you in S1 who do not know what a groin is will be subject to the "shoe rule" which doesn't allow open toad shoes.

That's gonna hurt when my wife shows you where it is.

No Ron again this time. He's gotta see a guy about a thing.

Yep he has a diesel sail boat. What could be worse? Being in his 70's is way worse. Love you Ron.

I'm assuming you meant me... I wish I could make this event. The track looks like a bunch of fun!! I have a wedding unfortunately. Although it does have an open bar which shouldn't suck too bad.

I will stay all day on June 30th and do fun runs in the afternoon. I'll have to bring the truck up that day also. Maybe I can have my project car done by then, but doesn't look like that's going to happen.

No, he means the guy who plows fields whenever he borrows Doug's car.

My checklist is shorter:

Lubricate annoyingly squeaky heim joints. Check.
Drive car. Nothing feels weird. Check.
Look at fuel gauge. Check.
Gather the radios and spare batteries. Check.
Print Course Maps, Schedules and Run/Work Lists. Check.
Pile all that crap in the car and don't forget the gas can. Check.
Set alarm for 5:45am, leave by 6:15am.

My run-prep checklist is shorter still:

Adjust rear shocks to full stiff.
Remove box of stuff and spare from the back and put the rear seat back down.
Slap numbers on the car.
Set line of shame.
