Spectator was $10? Maybe $15 for the weekend (this is assuming it's the same as last time).
I spent all of friday and saturday at the last event, and camped out at the air-strip.

The event is a lot of fun, but plan on heat and sun... no trees around on an air feild. And unless you are buddy buddy with someone who is racing, shade can be hard to find in any location where the track is visible.

Please dont think any ol Busa will break 200. You're setting yourself up for pains if you do.

It's harder than people think. Most are 170-180's stock and 180-190's modded. There is probably a very small % going 200+ on a stock motor N/A setup but it is possible...

Not everyone can get a miracle run like you did. I was talking about your runs the other day.

It was good. I was telling the wife about you busting 200 and what was done. She then asked why I insisted on my bike needing so many add ons before I went to the mile.

I have seen many Busas with mods and 14's on a 50 shot not make it to 200.
