TonyP,

Make sure he brings his R&C GP car. I would love to see another 'challenge' race over at The Race Place! I think that's almost a perfect track for those cars to run on.

Besides, Mike is another one of the guys from the old neighborhood and is always welcomed here.

I'll see you later this aftenoon / evening for a "Test & Tune" session!

Just wanted you to know, Marty, that the sausage biscuit/thingies have been made and are safely resting in the freezer until Saturday morning!

Have a safe drive up...

BTW... what time does the track open Saturday morning, and what time is the first race?...

I have a 3.5 hour drive... and will need a body for my F1.

Found out today that Rick Moore from Tampa, Fla. is coming to play with us on Saturday and Roger Holtsclaw is trying to clear his schedule to make it down from Tennessee... says he has a new F1 that desperately needs to make its maiden voyage. Not to mention he has the cutest pit crew this side of the Mississippi working for him!

Ben... Don usually opens around 8:00AM on raceday and at 12:00 on Friday for practice. PM him to see if he has any painted F1 bodies, I can't remember!

Yes, Don, I really don't care which one you keep for me just so it is a bright color and won't break the bank...

BTW do these take different fronts than a Can-Am?

Next, Marty Stanley out of Florida will be making his second Fall trip to Abbeville. I had to bribe him with his own personal plate of Brenda's sausage pinwheels to get him to make the trip! Coming with him will be CMF3, builder of some really unique chassis from the "other" blog. Riding with them will be arguably the TOP chassis builder on the East Coast... Tony P!!!

Just wanted you to know, Marty, that the sausage biscuit/thingies have been made and are safely resting in the freezer until Saturday morning!

Don,

Is that the plate you promised me? :rolleyes:

BTW, CMF3 and Rick Moore are the same person. He has some very interesting chassis coming up there. I've had the chance to peek at them and even test some of them! They're quite interesting.

Now, if you want to talk about interesting chassis, just wait until you see those TonyP has built especially for the race next Saturday! Since the only thing we are currently racing down here is the JK Spec Class, Tony has been like a bird dog sitting in front of the pigeon coop, just a nervous twitch. Now that his girlfriend went on a cruise, he broke out the cigars, grabbed his tools, and went to work. Very nice stuff, just wait until you see it.

Myself? Heck, I'm just coming up for the FUN y'all provide at your races.

See you Friday afternoon, Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise!

Why did Jack decide he's not interested in F1 anymore?

He has one of the best F1's at the track!?

"Well into the Night", meaning until about 9 PM.
I plan on having a belly full of steak in my private jacuzzi by 10:30. :laugh2: :king:

Saturday night, John and I are prepared to stay over if necessary, if things get wild and crazy. :yu:

Pablo,

You are one of those people that I just knew I would get along with right away!

The prioritities that you have are VERY similar to mine!

Our motel room is reserved for Saturday as well. Depending on what's happening we might just spend another night there as well.

Now if Don Berni will just fire up that big grill of his, we can have our steak while we're racing!

Marty, you all ready? Who's doing the driving?

TonyP,

Ready or not, I'm looking forward to going up to Abbeville.

We will have FUN and lots of it. There's a very good reason for the name... "Slots of FUN", as he works very hard to make you feel appreciated.

I had a test session last night and the cars are not bad. I'll just have to go with what I have and we'll see what we shall see! At least I've got a Formula 1 and a Can-Am car ro run up there. Both pretty slow, but sometimes the fastest cars does not win, at least that's what I've heard! ;)

My excitement is rising very quickly and I'll probably be up bright and early on Friday morning. Whenever you're ready to ride, we'll hook up and go.

See you then!
