I hope you are there. You have answered many questions for me.

Sorry to hear that, Ron. I hope all is well and you enjoy a little break.

I am going to test'n'tune at Motormile Dragway tonight with the White 62 Valiant. Hope to cut some decent lights and get to know the car on track before Knoxville next weekend!

Gary just called with the race information.

Friday gates open at 6:00 and racing starts at 7:00.
Saturday gates open at 2:00 and they will run our class up front, so don’t dawdle y’all!

Entry fee per race is $30. Don’t know about payout yet.

They will try to let us run the VA make up race as well.

The track was having trouble putting a program together. As of Thursday we will be paired up with some diesel truck racers. Lots of 6 Bangers!! :twisted:

Thanks, Rob. I got the call from Gary too, but you beat me to the post punch...

I will pull out of Blacksburg after lunch on Friday, so see you all that evening!

I don't even know his real name. Met him on FABO as Thumpr. He lives about 45-60 mins from me. He was supposed to get with me this weekend, but I haven't heard anything. I'll probably still come up, even if he doesn't make it. Need to pick up some parts, and bring up some parts. Any one need anything?

My bet is we will congregate at the Bruners' garage about 1 mi from the track. Come on when you are ready and give me a call when you get close. There will be several of us hanging out together for sure!

Loaded the Duster on the trailer and had lunch with Big Mike, Chaseroo and Weejword... That would be Michael, Chase and CJ Simmons, three of my four sons. Mike works evenings and often weekends, so my favorite Crew Chief can't make it to test & tune tonight or to the Knoxville race. Chase and CJ will be filling in. :wink:

Come up Saturday morning with car and all your parts. If they don’t get here in time I will load everything in my truck and bring to you on Friday evening.
