    Default Buttonwillow April 12-13 w/ Speed Ventures

    Who is going? Who is driving? I will be driving both days. It has been a year since my last time at BW. I'm looking forward to seeing how my new 'winter install' parts work out. Does anyone know if the tire center will be open either of the days?

    I think quite a few of us will be there. I'll be there sat/sun. Its also been a LONG time since I've been there.

    No idea about the tire shop.

    I'll probably be there...it will be my 4th trip to BRP in the space of 6 weeks, so I may be bankrupt/running without tires.

    Ha, no more hard drive failures for me. I've got a much better setup now.

    I'll be there both days. The track side tire place should be open. I had my wheels re-balance there 2 weekends ago.

    I am in a Black STI with Black Wheels, driving Sat and Sun.

    Aaron promised he will learn how to take pictures of Black cars before this weekend....

    Should we all try and pit in the same area? Anyone have a favorite spot?

    make sure you guys all come say hi.

    I know I'll probably be parked with a large group of lotuses along with Manly and Jay and Tim.

    Not sure where in the pits that will be though.

    Jared, if you want better photos of your car, get a real color - red or yellow.


    Hey everybody, I'll be driving up early tomorrow morning leaving Sherman Oaks between 5:45 and 6:00. If you are driving up at around the same time, give me a call. 310.699.0588

    Also, I'll be heading home Saturday night so I'll be driving up on Sunday as well. If anybody wants free photos of their car and can give me a lift to the track (and home) Sunday from Sherman Oaks, I sure would appreciate it.

    Looking forward to seeing everybody there.

    I just got a text saying a car is shiny side up at riverside turn.

    then during a phone conversation I heard a helicopter flying in. I hope it was none of us.

    I actually believe it was a white RX7. I never did go look at the car. The driver was taken away in an ambulence but was said to be "ok"

    I just got home and so did the car. Have fun out there guys. Represent trackhq and kick some ass. Keep the shiny side up and the rubberside down.

    Manly congrats on the class win again. Not to shabby only being beaten by the Forcedfed 380R race car with a pro driver

    Tim Excellent win in your class as well against some stiff competition . How did our team do? Hope I didn't ruin the chances for the team.

    Wish I could have been there

    Did excessive honking and waving his hands at the other car cause him to loose control?
