Hey Andy how was your first time out on the track? Nope this is my 2nd time down there. I got most of the track figured out just need to start pushing more. VIR really isnt fun on stock suspension or without much power... Good thing I finally upgraded the suspension at least.

I'll be instructing but if I have free time I'll give ride along if any of you are interested.
I'm not really the fastest person on the track tho...

Blue MR2 Spyder.
You cant miss it since its the only MR2 that usually shows up during mid-atlantic NASA events.

Hope that special wave isnt a red flag! :D

I'll think of something, it'll probably be dumb/goofy

I remember your car, but if there are any others (like that MK2 guy that said he might be going....)

It was a blast. I'm going to the THSCC event the week before. Do you know if Vince is coming?

Oh okay, I was about to say, our car club is getting screwed. I actually worked turn 10 last year with a guy from Clemson's car club. Are you a member and is your car club coming up for it. My car club, Madison Motorsports, is going to be there big time. 20-30 folks, half driving, half working.

^^ Tell Dr. Ken Wagner "Hi" if you ever see him. I think he retired several years ago - but he was my F&C mentor - and one of the coolest guys I ever met - about 30 years ago. I think his son is still around there, though.

Hehe . . .

Heyward was a baby the last time I saw the family - must'a been '77 or so - although we communicated via email a couple of times a few years ago. I've never met Mitch.

Ken was the NA of F&C back then. He was treated so badly by ATL Region at the Runoffs in '77 or '78 that he never went back - and neither did I. And I haven't been since then. I guess I'll go this year, though. Since they moved the Runoffs to Topeka and I'm a MiDiv Steward, I'm kind'a expected to be there.
