Thanks. It's very different to what I thought it would be. I had never raced before in my life, and I had never even driven this car hard until that day. Even as I pulled in that morning, I was wondering what I was doing at a racing competition. Turned out to be a hell of a day. I'm definitely going back, but like you, I'm not running the Homestead events. So I think that leaves me (us) out of the next 3 or 4?

I notice the guys in 1st and 3rd place are the same ones who beat me. We might have a little bit of arch-rivalry going on, so that will be kind of cool. I'm always wondering how much faster I could have gotten on that day, and what other factors played into my placing. And now to add the same guys/ same cars to my class for the next times throws a little bit of flavour into the mix. The soup thickens!

You guys should really try to make it to the Homestead Runs. The track layout really suits our cars.

It's smoother (No LSD? Well, this fact will help you a little then!), More full direction changes (Not unlike Bank Atlantic Center), and the grip level is much greater since cars and go karts run that parking lot all the time.

I know it may be a bit of a stretch but trust me it's worth it. Besides, driving there early in the morning is no big deal, NO TRAFFIC!. If you guys don't go, I guess I'll see you in April, first 3 events are scheduled for Homestead.

Michael Delaney: Lotta people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well. When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.
