Here is the funny thing.

I originally emailed him, sent him a description of the truck, my background, all of the instructor schools I have done in the last two years and a list of all the events....it was very clear that it was a truck.

He then asked for some photos of the TRUCK...

Of course I obliged and sent him a few photos of the truck.

I asked him this evening and he sited their rules and that there are no trucks or SUV's allowed for safety purposes.

I call total b.s. no trucks allowed is fine just tell me that up front but when you ask for photos and run it past your officials there is another reason.

I don't believe in not telling the truth as hard as it is to hear sometimes I would rather hear the truth than some bull**** story.

I'll get down there to run with you guys this spring.

Sean
It was your Eugene address, file a discrimination suit.

Also get a Springfield PO Box for future entries.

Have you been to Oregon Raceway Park yet? You'll love it and they'll love your truck.

My car worked great, up to a point. In my third session, I started getting some kind of power cut that only happened when turning right after about seven laps. Otherwise, I was having a good time, hitting about 120 on the straight before applying my still somewhat low-confidence brakes. Last time out, I had the stupid speed limiter (unknowingly) sticking me at 95-98, reminding me that the car's PCM was from a Suburban, not a Corvette. Now, it's set at about 217 . . .

This was my first time doing the bypass configuration, which is perhaps a bit more interesting when you're seeing it from so far back in the car (back seat area). It takes some getting used to, and I pretty much hit it like your grandma every time.

Dave's car worked great, until it didn't. I didn't see Dave in the first session, but in the second, I passed him, only because his clutch said "F-you!" My friend Chuck, who drove his totally stock 1985 Mazda Rx7 120+ miles to the track (and back home), ripped through all of his sessions without an issue. Go figure.

There was very minimal carnage for the day, short of a guy in a McLaren who lightly tagged a wall. Small groups probably helped.

Nobody brought a real camera, but there is phone-cam evidence of Dave using tools.
The FalcoVette is so cool. Probably the biggest fan draw of the day. And it sounds good at speed on track.

Speed SF does a good clean job running things. Their drivers meetings actually seem to serve a purpose. Go figure.

Fun, fast track... but 7 total laps for me... fail.

Chuck, Paul and 2 Bastards...
