Race Day issues...

Guys, we have a bit of a dilemma. I hadn't realized that the 20th is a pretty big weekend for racing and both Byron and Union Grove are booked for that day. US41 is booked for open test and tune so we could definetely get in there however I'm weary of the drive down there (~1.5 hours from the mod day location).

The options are to have the race day at US41 or to move the event forward a couple weekends, possibly into early June (the 2nd and 3rd most likely) and have the race day at Byron.

It's entirely up to you guys so place you make the call and we'll get it done.

No matter what Byron is crowded. I almost think it is worth the drive to 41.

For the time being we're keeping the location where it is but I appreciate the offer. Since this event has kind of turn into a one man show (and one family show) it's significantly easier for me to set up and run the event from the current location.

This is perfect, I can go to mod day then stop at my house on the way to 41, gut my car and toss on the drag radials. :D

I'm glad this is working out then guys. It seems like it's for the better either way. I just hate to drive 4 hours in an 8000lb V10 vehicle... I can go poor very quickly!

Bob, just get up to Harvard. It's what, an hour away from your place? It's easier for you since you live south. I live north so I have to drive an hour to the event, 2 hours to 41, 3 hours back to clean up the land, and then an hour home. If I can do it anyone here can.

According to Google Earth the Harvard site is 158 miles, 3 hours, away from US41. I thought the hour drive from Harvard to Byron last year was a cruise. :eek:
