Yup, they're sold out... I guess I will be doing Nashville under lights, if the forecast looks better.

here's the deal, I always keep 2 slots open for CLSB'ers. If you want to ride Gingerman PM me and I'll hold your spot, BUT you have to do all three days. And I'll waive the late fees...BUT it's all 3 days. first come first served.

I've pretty much had a bump every track day after the first one. I guess I'm a quick learner. I wanted to do "I" with STT at gingerman, but it filled up. So I emailed gunshow, told him the situation, said I ran easily top 50% of Nesba I, and Chris Hipple said I was running A pace on an open track in N my second STT day. Nick said sign up for A, and if I was off pace I could bump down. We'll see how it goes
