A few of us are getting together tomorrow (Sunday, Oct 5). We'll be meeting at the A&W at Plumb and Kietzke at 11:00.
It's just going to be a fun little cruise for a few hours up to VC.
Right now there are only 4 or 5 cars going. Myself, 96 Formula, Dillon(ieatrice),94 Formula, Phil(Birdman1) 95 Formula, Jon(97blackformula), 97 Formula, duh, and Vinnie, 97 TA.
It should be fun.

Ya Bob. My usual problem, spinning the tires. :lmao22: I did win the last race, even though he still got me out of the hole. :) His 3:73s and auto got me every time off the line.
I think the 135k on my car is taking it's toll. :lmao22:

Jon has 66k on his.
