    I assume since the N stands for National and this is a national event series it would be okay to post here. Several of us from my area will be making the trip to participate and/or watch (weather permitting). Some will be arriving Friday night while others like myself will arrive early Saturday morning. Several of us are planning to run in the True Street class event Saturday.

    Would love to make some acquaintances in person if anyone plans on being there at least for the Saturday event.

    Anyone else? It's pretty much the last hoorah for those of us facing cold and snow soon. Hope to see folks this Saturday.

    I'll see you at the booth. Going to have them spin mine up just to see the number for fun. Been looking forward to meeting Alex. Spent so much time on the phone with him I feel like he's my field service support specialist. LOL!

    Finally made the final True Street pass just before midnight. Talk about government run state of organizational chaos. Rain delays had some effect but not to the degree of being 5 hours + behind. Was much better organized event at National Trail in Hebron, OH back in June. I got home this morning at 7:00am after a 27 hour day with a 45 minute power nap in the parking lot of Waffle House at 4:00am in Elizabethtown this morning.

    Sorry I forgot to come see you guys in the pit area. When I am doing something for the first time especially at an event that was that poorly organized (in spite of 150 true street entries) I develop tunnel vision and a very bad case of old man PMS. LOL!

    Hope you all had safe clean passes. Pretty Certain I saw T-Birf guy make a pass in Bracket 2.

    POCOPOWER were you running TS Class with the GHIG 13?

    Missed everyone else. Sorry.

    That's good that it wasn't just me that thought it was a little crazy.

    I did enjoy seeing Urist's new car.

    Not one car went down the track Friday.
    Sat. started 1 1/2 hours late.

    So alot of racing was crammed in.

    A lot of cars there.
    150 in TS...wow !

    Still my favorite race of the year tho.

    Seemed like 10 lbs of crap in a 2 lb bag Saturday. Some of that lost time from Friday should have been moved to Sunday or simply a lost round of qualifications. They trimmed TS class finals from 3 to 2 passes to compensate for lost time due to weather.

    If I do go back and participate I will only do so with 0% of rain forecasted for the four day event just to give it fair chance. Otherwise no way aside from watching you fast guys getting r done. MAN THERE WERE SOME SERIOUS SPEEDS AND ET'S SAT.

    Dag, I bet the track was really hooking with a little sun load on it Sunday. Nice air as well I bet. What did the DA get down to Sunday? DA was at about 1050 at 7pm Saturday evening.

    This was my first time watching the NMRA Street Outlaw class run 1/8th mile.
    I understand why they went to 1/8th, but still it seems weird watching the quickest class only run 1/2 track.


    My new favorite fast class now is Renegade. Full 1/4 mile :headbang:
