Yes, you bring the chips and I prefer beer. You race, I'll drink beer, eat chips and shoot you with the potato gun.

Then Nick, you can' put you're money where your mouth is.

Hopefully, we only have to ride the crash truck together and not the ambulance like last time.

think smart play well and respectful. Or don't be surprised with what ensues.
Well than I just stick to running super twins...

it's funny when you call someone retarded and then proceed to say something like "mute point". and you'd probably like to know that all MW races were combined when we switched to a 1-day schedule towards the end of last season... not to mention that twin sprint weekends combine the MW classes which make up 3 of the midwest rounds next year. but thanks for the lesson.

now i'm just gonna have to figure out how to beat you and your rockin' fast 14s.
