This event is going to be absolutely wacky. Rumor mill has multiple LS-powered cars showing up, multiple Rotrex cars showing up, and of course my turbo beast.

Last year there was an LS swapped car that ran a good time, it would suck if it rained.

If he just needs it to race Sunday I can loan him a 99-00 unit...

I'll need it back to make it home though.

I kid, I kid.

Looks like a lot of fun, I haven't run Infineon but I hear it's awesome.
