David,

I got a question for you. If you have the track paid in full by sponsors, then where will my $200 go if I pay you at the track? What good is my $200? To me this sounds like we should be getting a free trackday since the track is paid for.

Was it listed a non-profit organization? What's wrong with making some moolah?

2 hour lunch break? with stunting on the hot pit lane? nothing against stunters, but it's a trackday....if people pay YOU for track time, that is what they'll expect. not a stuntshow/bikini bike wash or anything of that matter.

i'm starting to see your trackday as a bad idea.....

don't get me wrong, it was a great idea in the beginning....but it has taken off in the wrong direction.

And its also to see how creative Azylum can be to jack a thread.
in the beginning, it was about getting people together to get on the track, and save some money while doing so......

now it has become a full blown $1,000,000.00 sponsored track organization.

Charles, let me borrow some money and I will make it happen. Can I get a loan at 0% with no minimum payment?

Enjoy the show... and above all CHILL. Relax... We have the facility til 7pm to lock the gates.

In the meantime, see the stunters have some fun and give the crowd something fun to look at!

I'm heading out... so you guys can talk while I am gone. At least I know now where my supporters are and where not to look. Many of which said two weeks ago I was not going to get anyone to show up at my Meet & Greets!
just a small point though. 2 hrs to shut the trak down is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to long.

$1s are fine. I sure could have some fun at the strip club with them. Forget the trackday, lets take the money to the strip club.
