great day today! i'll keep an eye on the local magazines for some shots of our elises! Thanks to Macdaddy (greg) and cornbeef (alan) for showing up! great racing for a great price. although next time i'm bringing my own blue flag since the track officials let us ride someones bumper all day without giving them one! LOL I shaved 2-3 secs off my lap times since the last LEO/PALS event!

Z & Cornbeef, good seeing you guys. Had a good time, and saw some interesting cars.

Also, yeah they've gotta teach those officials down there how to wave flags. Are your ribs still intact?

I've gotta say, that is the most fun and technical track in the area. I like it more the GPNY by far. And the prices are better too.

good catching up with you guys, it was fun. next time i need to commission that last cart i had for every race, definitely fastest (it was easily able to haul my ass up to speed, thank god that kid didn't have it) and it sounded like it had a stage 2 exhaust when i came off the gas:drool: which alone had to be worth like a second a lap. i still think the track staff need to rewatch their training video on flag use....

Damn, I wish I had seen this prior to the day happening. Grrr. I'm only about a half hour away and didn't do much that day because of the weather.

lol how about those dismal lap times in pic # 6!!! where were those guys when we were racing???? we would have been 1,2,3 in every heat with competition like that LOL. lol i see your SB in there!
i think that was a couple of heats after our last, we should have stayed longer (although my sides probably couldn't take it:D) maybe next time we should race against the kiddie carts, that should help
