  • Never, and I mean NEVER remove your seat belt while driving up to a toll booth in Maryland. Their cops have "little man syndrome" to the greatest magnitude.
  • There is a special method to using a hotel key card. :rolleyes
  • Dan can pretend to sleep to avoid driving a dangerous rig loaded with 2 cars.
  • Bob (2mch) roams the hallways and parking lots while drinking dark beer. Be careful.
  • Mike (Mjust) doesn't really have a Camaro. He's just pulling our legs.
  • Having DWJ walk up to you in a parking lot when you don't know he's there, will scare the hell out of a person.
  • Siska appears to be much happier when he's at the track and doesn't even need a drink to be happy.
  • Never order a fru fru drink in front of your buddies. You'll never hear the end of it.
Only thing I can add to this is Norm's new handle: "Mud-Slide Slim"

Waiting on a response to my email to them, it could be a while as the City of Pueblo now runs the track.

"mud-slide slim" Norm...you crack me up!

The track and cuban cigars make me real happy! The track was my go-to fun every weekend. Until one stupid decision to take it to the street....

Re: MIR private track rental Friday Nov. 16th

Rick wouldn't trust me driving that semi! I ain't complaining cuz I needed the sleep.

Here's Gary running a 10.41. He ran a 10.37 too. Both were good enough to beat the heads & cam LS3 record of 10.6 IIRC.

Re: MIR private track rental Friday Nov. 16th

Guys - check your credit card statements!
The hotel in Dahlgren double charged me for the room - not sure if it is just incompetence or something worse. I called the hotel and am waiting for the Mgr. to call me back.
Best check your statements!
