Almost like you planned it that way!

I am impressed with 38 cars making it to the show. Thanks in advance to the proxy hosts who have volunteered to host this circus. It's going to be a labor of love with this many competitors. Definitely looking forward to seeing how my entries stack up against some of the proxy legends out there- it's been a long time since I dove into a proxy pool. Let the games begin!

THANKS Allan!
