I will see you guys up
There. Unfortunately they put me in intermediate so I don't think I'll be in your run group to play. I'll be in my e46 m3. So far the best time I have run there is a 2:37.

I'll be up there for the Drive for babies next Friday. It's sold out, but for those interested for next year, it's a pretty good deal and most of the fee is tax deductible

I did an HPDE last year in Dec near Fort Worth. It was 36 and raining. I can tell you that worn Hankook RS3's are absolutely worthless in those conditions.
