Track Daze August 25/26 VIR

Dave and Doc I know you are signed up. Who else is coming? Anyone on the fence about VIR should come Thursday and Friday for this event. If you have no vacation time, come down Saturday and Saturday with Tarheel BMW. Either way, you have no excuse. Get your ass out to the track. I will be in the fast gtr...

If you get to the track Wednesday afternoon look for me, I am the drug dealer looking guy. Dave, I will bring your wheels!

I have rented a Villa for 4 days, will bring lots of Beer

Have fun!

Myself and a buddy will be getting down there late Wednesday night, I booked one of the places above pit lane, close to the paddock so we can escape the heat for a bit. I too will have lots of beer, which I had better drink since I am going to have to stuff another set of wheels/tires in the car for the ride home. Hopefully Doc will be able to watch my 6 so I can get out of the way. See you guys there.
