Had a great time. It is difficult learning a new track. Maybe should have asked for more help. My lines were not so good. I WILL be back!

it was a great mafia gathering...

props to pam and all the cornerworkers for doing an outstanding job...

we had a great class and had very few runoffs/getoffs overall...

as for me, i'm still chasing tom...

my 636's midrange pwnz my 750's... so time for yet another re-gearing on the 750 i'm thinking... (the 636 was givin me way better drives than the 750 last time out there)

we're scheduled to be back at TWS (Texas World Speedway) again on aug 11th - hopefully we can get jody out there to help some of us become members in the lstd mafia sub2:00 crew...

get well soon candie...
