Dude...This sucks...I tell you what... you can use my brand new q2 since I am getting my tires swapped... Of course if you don't get one in time...

I am gonna get my slicks put back on so I can keep up with those lvl 3 guys who should have signed up for 3 instead of 2...

At least you know you'll have a tire..you'll just have to pay whoop to swap it for ya!! you might be able to sell it to someone willing to ride a patched tied on the street to make some money back... someone will buy it.

Once I get my other tires on I won't need it back till after TWS (Texas World Speedway) in Nov.
