I can confirm that. I talked to Bart last week and that's what he told me.

LOL. No, I think he's just de-slotting for a bit. I know he can't go too long without racing. ;)

If we are having a pick-up F1 race after the Can-Am, can we run Pro Slot motors?

Don,

How can two Yankees represent the birthplace of the confederacy? :)

Chris,

I don't see why you couldn't. Its just a 'fun' race. But with the economy the way it is now, my 2 cents isn't even worth 2 cents! :)

Chris:

As far as I'm concerned, we can. I think that would be an excellent opportunity to assess the performance head-to-head in a real world setting. Some of the other guys might take exception to this and I'll go with the majority but I vote yes.
