I like what you did with the car, looks great! Good luck, and have fun!

That thing looks like a bucket. Don't stuff it into the wall Phillips.

Hey CJ, I sent a reply to your email. We have a ChaseCam car being entered in the race and will have some equipment up there as we are doing some filming for a SPEED TV deal.

Cool, I'll look for the Pink Pig. Good luck to you guys as well.
BTW I recommend you pit next to another E30 team if possible - that will make your life a lot easier when (not if :)) something breaks. You are more than welcome to pit alongside us.

Thanks for the invitation, I'll pass it on to the Team. I'm flying in Firday night won't be there for friday practice and tech, but the rest of the team is on their way to RENO right now.

See you there,

Sean

That looks great! Maybe too great. Get ready for some penalities before you start for looking too fast. I'd be worried they would institute the "we are buying it for $500" clause.
