While I would love to go back to VIR again this year, I have to work that day, and before I go back I really should upgrade my brakes and put some new fluid in.
Hope those that go have some fun and take some pics.

I was going to be there, but my job decided I didn't need that day off even though I requested it and was told I had it.... they gave it to my coworker instead because it's his birthday, $%^&ing lame.

I'm going, but have to take the day off without pay since I don't have any "one day" vacation days left. I know its not much of a run on the track but at least i'll know what its like since i've never been to VIR before.

So, what time is everyone planning on getting there?

Here's the info from the website:

VIR in conjunction with Danville, VA Salvation Army and WAKG/WBTM
will be holding our annual Holiday Laps on November 9, 2012 from
9:00am to 4:00pm.
You can drive the historic full course track of VIR by making a
donation of $25 non-perishable food items, unwrapped toys or
money. Each session will be $25 and will last approximately 20 to 25
minutes. These donations are tax deductible. All donations collected
will benefit the local Salvation Army and their winter/holiday projects.
Each car can sign up for two sessions initially. Additional sessions may
be available throughout day.
Come out and enjoy the fun and help those in need this holiday
season.

Would love to go but have to work. I'll get up there one of these days

Maybe I can make it to CMS if they're doing their Black Friday charity laps thing again.
