The bus won't be making it as most people are flying and I am driving my truck with Trey and possibly John. I have a full set of shocks that will be assembled units ready to pop in if that happens again. Podium finish would be pretty awesome.

Anyone getting excited for this? It's only a month out.

I'm signed up to drive with Team Lucky Monkey Racing in a 2nd gen integra. Car is white and orange. We will NOT be competitive...

I haven't been to VIR in a couple years and have never driven the grand course so I'm pretty stoked. I also haven't been on track since March so I'm going through a bit of withdrawal.

Looking forward to seeing you gehs there and tasting your meat...

I'll be there with Liars Anonymous. I'm not sure if we'll have anything special unless I can get a fellow crew member to bring his smoker.

They are a great team of what seems to be pretty nice guys. Super competitive, but courteous racers. Definitely one of the teams to be looking for on podium if they have no mechanical issues.

Yeah, last year the ECU went kaput. Yay for 80mph top speed on the front straight.

Can we do cheezy head shots for my non-budding pro racing career?

My work is going to be so pissed when I am out on the 9th. Ohh well, that is why I requested it off 6 months ago.

they shouldnt give you vacation days as an incentive to your employment to use at will if they're only going to get mad that you use vacation days.
