Chris, Intersting. Pro Racing, Many many avenues brother. Alot of dollars as well. The hard work that you exude may get you to that level. Exposer and backing is really important.

The ability to acheive that goal is on you. Mike will have some good insight as to how hard it is.

Guts,abilities,backing. Go for it bro!

I know what I'm getting you for Christmas.


Chris, are you coming to Sebring next weekend?

Will have plenty of time to sit down on Saturday and have some long talks about what it takes.

Only running the regionals.

Mike, is Mike running the enduro in the new car?

No Chris, I'm not.

I'm crew chief on an Acura that runs ITS and World Challenge this weekend for some friends that help me out a lot here in Lakeland.

Really don't want to overuse the engine and brakes for a race that doesn't provide any points towards the championship and will just wear the car out.

So figured I'll just run the regionals and have some fun.

We can sit and yak about what your plans are and how to achieve those goals. Have a lot of contacts up in North Carolina in the Nascar community that can help you out.

It looks like we are going to enter the enduro. Mike needs the seat time to get accustomed to the new car. Its pretty fast, quite different the the7. Will see ya there.

I'll bring my touch up paint too. Let's do it. If we can hook up on the straights we can really see some high speeds drafting with each other.

Setting my car up for high straight line speed and cleaning up the airflow over the car so we should be close in top end.

Chris , come on by. We'll talk.

Mike G., if you need any help during the enduro, let me know.

Now Mike, we both know that chopping the roof 4 inches and duct taping all the hood gaps is NOT allowed...

Now Jim,

I would never do anything like that. however the new plexiglass rear spoiler is almost done and that should help a lot. Hey it's clear plexiglass, no one can see it.

tell you one thing that needs to be checked a little closer is ride heights on our cars. Saw some cars in June that were way under the 5" rule and our tech people need to start looking for things like that or we'll all be doing it.
