Holy, holy, HOLY CRAP!

What an event! Wheel to wheel with 78 cars on a 1-mile road course -nuts! Not as bad as the tiny bullring events like Altamont - the organizers seem to be making a major effort to stomp out any demo-derby aspect of the event.

CMP West was just about perfect - some real roadrace turns with some real overtaking possibilities.

I'm *still* burnt out - I'll try to post a real report later - here's some local NC and SC press we got, and some pictures:

We made the front page of the Raleigh News & Observer!
