Thanks! I'll simply come in with a full tank and refuel at the track as needed.

I'll have to remember to take a towel for the seat if I ever go...

OC3,

Thanks for posting all the pics. Great shots.

That 350Z must have gone off about 3 times yesterday. I don't think he just wet himself but probably soiled his seats too.

LOL..

Great pictures Randall. If you don't mind, I'd like to put them on the site.. Let me know!

I just loaded the pictures off my hard drive to the computer.. the pictures are unreal.. can't wait to get these badboys on the net!

Thanks for coming out everyone.. It was a great event... Once most people left around 3, open track the rest of the day was EPIC.

Congrats Ricky for breaking his record in his M3! I'll let him announce it himself!

Thanks again everyone! I had a blast.

Glad ya'll enjoyed the picts. Nice meeting everyone.

Congrats Ricky on your yet-another awesome lap time.

And thanks Josh for putting together another fun track event. Quite frankly, I feel very comfortable at your events as it's organized by one of our own. I get a kick out of it when you get on the PA system and go "drivers, get your a$$es out there."

Thanks everyone for posting the pics.

And sorry to whoever I passed on that cool down lap! I completely missed the checkered flag....and after some of those morning sessions (with the 350), it did not seem unheard of to get behind someone going so slow. Anyway, punter move - my apologies.
