Thanks Mike and Dennis--and of course Jim and Debby for a very fun race day today on the flatster!! I'm re-learning to drive the faster cars-- GT 12 and Euro. Had a chance to run my new LMP car-- a little down on power--so it handled GREAT!! And in GT 12 ran a Slick 7 ASP 4 -- a little too heavy to stay with the big boys--but a good choice to get my feet wet again with GT 12 cars. Their quick little devils!! Then after the racing got a chance to try my Euro cars that we'll run on June 1st -- and got both the Mack and the Horkey down in the 3.2's out on Blue--the speed shop cars didn't seem to like the track conditions as well. Thanks to Mike Who for rebuilding my Euro motors---some are pretty quick.

All in all--a fun race and "test and tune" day for me. Thanks guys---I"m sure they'll post the results soon.
