Just stay away from the 666 guy (mopar)... last time I saw him on the track he was about two feet above his bike at 100+

Damn, I am a newbie. All you fella's and fellette's doing 2 days. Last year I only did one and it kicked my a$$. Ah, this year I hope it'll be different. I'm going to approach it like I do when I'm at the hold em' table....Patience, patience, patience.....
BTW...anyone know what the chances are that someone (CR or otherwise) will be there to do some video? I thinks that would be a great way to assess my progress this year. (Just curious cause I heard that there was this crew((company)) that did video at NESBA events.)
If true, i'd like to get my name on that list early.

From what I have gathered through various conversations, is that when doing 2 days, you do not do all of the sessions. So virtually you would split a day / day and a half over 2 days. I am pretty wiped the day after doing all of the sessions in a day, so I still plan on doing a day at a time, and maximize the day that I am there.

ive been training for 3 months, drinking beer, "fluids" working out on the fiddy ripping threw hoods and dodging cops, "agility and maneuverability"

All the other stuff too have been mental focus, "blocking out the wife bitching"

etc, etc, etc.
