Last year we raced on Sunday's. So how about Sunday October 1st in Michigan and Sunday October 29th in Ohio. That's only four weeks apart so if you Michigan guys think you'll need more time to recuperate from the thumping we are going to bestow upon you let me know and we can space them further apart. :D

Butch, I think that will be a problem. The Area 51 24 hr race is usually the last weekend in October. I know James schedule is busy around those dates too. But will do some talking and see what's happening.

I am going to need to get the NSR nationals in there also. I want to get it done before Thanksgiving this year if at all possible. I would rather have this race about a month before the nationals. We also have that Area 51 race like Rob pointed out. What about September?

We raced in October last year. Area 51 was cancelled so it worked out. The year before that was in July. I'm out the weekend of September 22 - 24. Otherwise I can make it work.

September 3rd is Labor Day weekend. Maybe 10th when all the kids are back in school.

James says he can't until October 14Th. So if we can move it to the weekend of the 14th that would be better.

Rob confused, who didn't see this coming? :laughing-rolling:

OK Rob, if everyone agrees, the race is on Sunday September 10th in Michigan at the store track. We'll test, tune and practice on Saturday September the 9th.

Then the race at my house is on October the 15th. You can test, tune and practice on Saturday October the 14th.

Your leaky tent awaits you. :lol:
