There's no "Mini" about these Nats! I can't believe all this will fit inside the facility.

 

Good thing they got a test run hosting the big NASCAR race! :-)

The open track sessions are more entertaining than a NASCAR race........

Michael, there was a question over on BMO about parking non event cars in the paddock (to sit in for A/C) vs outside the paddock.

Doug I answered that ? this morning.... we will park all the entrants and tow rigs first and there will be abundant parking by the Audi pavilion

The excitement is climbing ! I see some good old fashion challenging going on the Mike Maier Inc. and CorteX Racing facebook pages! Starting to pack and pick out what tire sets to take myself. The NASCAR configuration should be a blast on Friday. Gotta remember to bring lots of water! See you there on Thursday.

I recorded the recent NASCAR Race (Savemart 350?) at the track and I've been watching it for driving line ideas on the back side of the "new" course for us.

 

Who will be the first to go 2 wheels in the air coming around Turn 7A ?

Kevin Patten! and maybe Tom Dankel......

The more important question is who will get the first stripe down the left side from the wall after turn 4 going onto the bypass over to turn 7. If you turn in too early and catch the exit berm at 4 then you can get caught up on the berm and roll over it with the 2 left side tires, then you have a hard press time to get back over before the wall because it comes out right next to the track surface - makes for a good pucker factor for sure. Getting 2 wheels up in 7 ? - I don't know but I can get the front inside tire up (been there).

Well, now it is too late but, as of the previous question was asked - does it count if I put 2 wheels up in the air around turn 4 instead of turn 7? The answer is yes and yes I did just that for my Team Shelby members. I'm waiting for the disc to be sent from "Head On Photos" or you can go to the website and check out the blue group pictures (car 57 - photo 141a) from the weekend. Enjoy!
