What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

FYI Wink, I'm going to try to get the 250 back together by then. If I go I'll be spending a majority of time on it.

Just so you know...Wink would have been at many more events this year but after the NESBA date at Blackhawk someone misplaced Wink and he was just recently located in the Blackhawk Farms "lost and found" I would encourage everyone to not be so careless with Wink in the future...it just a shame that he has missed the entire Midwest track season as a result of careless handling.

For all the people that put up the "Wink is MISSING - REWARD for safe return" posters....it is greatly appreciated.

yeah, but don't worry about it. i think the warning actually comes from your browser update.
the site is secure, i've registered with them before.

If you still feel unsafe, you can also fax to them the form

Seriously? I know superdave's a great guy and all but if you have that much extra cash laying around, you don't want passing rules, and you wanna learn faster. Go racing!

as a first year rider, i'll stick with the VSR session for now. definitely sometime down the road, tho...

besides, i felt like BHF really packs their grids and the groups don't seem very consistent.

I'm in. I finally get to do another track day after finishing the patio.

This will be my first day on the track since June, so I signed up for the Intermediate group. I've ridden in their A-group, but I think I'll be a little too rusty to risk being a rolling obstacle. This is more of a warm-up session for the upcoming Barber trip next month.

yeah, I know, and I'm to broke to race this year.
I've heard nothing but great things about the school. Just sayiing I also learned a lot last year from the actual competition and it's addicting. Do whatever works best for you and any day at the track beats a day at work, I'm just jealous of those that get to call a day at the track work.

You're still not up to date...

As for work? More of an extra cost and a way to keep myself underemployed.

Shelly,

the last two times it was sold out and overbooked. The last info I have is that not too many people have signed up so far, so you should be good.

Check your PM box
