Please Note:

I now recall, and have be reminded this time, that while this track is nice to look at, on the computer screen , there are a LOT of spots that look like simple guard railing that will stop the car in it's tracks and rip off wheels. Even the outside wall of the pits has this anomaly. ( Right about where it stops on your right as you are leaving the garage. ). I know there is one on the outside of the track, at the top of the Esses, going up the hill from the first corner. Right were you might be temped to go wide to get out of some drivers way, or if you go in too hot and push out. There are others as well. This may sound weird, but you just might want to experiment with the railing in the places you might get close. I brush of the railing shouldn't end your race, but it could and it did for me, last season.

if by meditation you mean praying not to hit one of those messed up walls? :) yea that's what I am doing. I will be on tonight in about 7 hours. Sucks but lately ive been so darn tired when I get home that practicing hasn't led to good results. See you at about 9PM CST.

Alaster,

Thanks for allowing me to pit. I would have done the same thing since I have no idea how long the car will be stuck in the pit being repaired.

I was on Sean's Teamspeak listening for team orders, but my starting Options were gone and I had to pit.

That is my favorite track and it was measurably worth the effort to get a lot of time on the track before the race.

Thanks again, and sorry about the forced DQ, in the future we may want to find ways to avoid such things.
