Default Yours Truly GOING TO BAJA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

<------ Starting from pole in SSB race. Live broadcast of the race on SpeedcastTV starting at 11:25AM CST if you happen to be bored tomorrow around lunch time.

Tune in - the start should be a good laugh, I'll get eaten up and be P4 by turn one.

Sorry, not running a miata, or even a Mazda product. There is a couple miatas in the SSB/SSC field though...

Cheers, will try to do you gehs proud.

Dood that's an accomplishment- give yourself some cred:

Luke W., of Marysville, Ohio, drove his No. 79 HPD/BFGoodrich Tires/Alpinestars Honda Civic Si to a lap of 2:42.252 (88.751 mph), just 0.207-second ahead of Ralph Porter’s No. 32 Dryer & Reinbold BMW/Hoosier Tire BMW Z4 for the provisional pole in Showroom Stock B.
Congrats! Looking forward to you winning the race on the first lap!

2006 Civic Si coupe in a very non-racecar like Showroom Stock configuration.

The last time one of our Civics qualified P1 at Road America, the guy was in fifth place by the first corner. So I'm looking forward to that...

Congrats, that's impressive. I hope that you will do a lot better than fifth by the first corner!

As long as you're in iVTEC when the green drops, you'll be fine....until the real cars start trying :lmao: But if you had TRUBO KITTY plastered on your car, everyone would be like "WTF? " and you would distract them to a first place finish....because they'd be afraid of TRUBO KITTAH!!

Seriously, good lucks to you!!
