Me and my brother will be there. Our motel room is in Buford. Also, if anyone sees us out there tomorrow, say hi... We don't know anyone 'IRL', in my (shitty stock paint) red 94 with stock wheels and shitty all seasons, black finish panel. AR tags, natch.

Mike is on his way up to the track now and will be in the FM tent so stop by and say hi.

I'm heading up in a few. My car is very, very black and sounds like a Subaru, not hard to find at all. I'll be around the track taking photos.

Glad to meet you guys! Organizing the meet was a bit of fun but ended up working out well for everyone who made it. Jenn got up to Taco Mac around 6:30 to secure the table for about 30 people.....boy did we end up needing more as it was closer to 50 as there was some word-of-mouth attendees and some who saw the event posted but didn't say anything! Our waitress did a great job attending to everyone.

People I remeber meeting/seeing again-
Steve
Chris
Paul
Tasty Breakfast Treat
ianferrell (hope your ride back wasn't as bad as it sounded like it was going to be ...no pun intended)
shuiend (sp?) (will have to hit you up next time I'm in Charleston)

I know there were more of you there....

Well I got wrapped up in lots of beer down in the pits Saturday night, then continued at the dinner in the pavilion, then back to the the GRM tent. So I got side-tracked and couldn't make it.

I did get a chance to talk to Keith from FM and Steve from v8roadsters. I forget Steve and v8roadsters are really close to where I live, he didn't have to convince me I wanted to do an LSx swap

I saw chriscar, finally met Ben, and of course saw Mike(doppel) running around. Never got a chance to talk to anyone :( I always have the problem of trying to do everything on a weekend like the mitty, your always going to miss something, lol.

Glad you guys could all come out, though I don't think I actually met any of you, lol.

Mike was still up at Road A, waiting to lead the FM guys down to the restaurant and I'm texting him saying "um, how many people do you have with you because there are a LOT of people here". Glad they were so accommodating. It was funny sitting there waiting for our table to get put together and other people are walking up asking what the wait time was. The host was like "well, we have a party of 30 we're seating now so it may be a minute". I'm thinking that they are totally hating us.

It was fun though. Nice to see so many people get together for a great weekend of racing.

Amazingly, no real problems. 600 miles with only half a downpipe, and we got 34.4mpg, lol... The less gas you gave it the quieter it was so we were hypermiling it for sure. We just stuck to interstate as much as possible, drafted periodically and kept it between 65 and 72 most of the way...
still more quiet than every v twin motorcycle that passed us, but we knew we'd get a ticket if we gave any cops the chance.

Nice to meet you, man. I think you're the only person besides Steve that I talked to from mt.net.

Dinner was great - I arrived with Ben and my buddy Steve a little after 7:30 and was seated at the 'FM table' right next to Bill Cardell, which was really cool, but damn... in a place with a beer menu that could choke a horse, why was I the only one drinking?!?!?!

Had a great time. It was nice to meet a few of you, though I wish we could have met more. Thanks to RotorNut for bringing me a crucial car part! It was cool to get to chat with you and your girl. Glad to have a chance to chat with and a face to attach to RotorNut, Doppelganger, and SixShooter. Thanks to everyone that made it happen.

The FM gang sure is a nice bunch. Got to talk to Bill for quite a while in the parking lot at Taco Mac. Good times...
