Have fun - I won't be able to make it. I get back from the UK Friday, so I will have some family responsibilities to discharge as well as some jet lag to get rid of.

Have fun, see you in September.

Unfortunately the track is NOT going back in so easy!! Greg's still working on it today--and I'm NOT sure it's going to be ready by Sunday either!! Hope the hard body guys get a chance to race---AND PLEASE--let Debby know that the Hard Body Nat's ARE STILL ON!!! I'm hoping we get a nice turnout--but we need to start PROMOTING IT!!
She's real fine, my 409!!!
