I think Vince and I are going to try to make it. The kids are out of school that day -- Not sure which vehicle will make it. Depends on if we can get Tigger tuned for the Great Colorado Air by then....

Looks like there are 27 people signed up currently. Need 40 for the event to go on, but it is limited to 100. Check out the link in the 1st post for more info and how to sign up. Both Vince and I are signed up. We hope to have both the G8s there.

Had a blast at the track today...got in about 15 runs. My first run reset my personal best by .03 to a 14.6 flat. As the track rubbered up I quit wheelhopping and was able to do better as the track would let me launch at 1500 to 1600rpm as opposed to the 1200 rpm launches I usually do.

My last run was a 14.51 @ 98.47 mph with a 2.22 60'. All personal bests! And I was the first driver down the track for 2011...with a win too!

Only mods are a vararam and a magnaflow 12468 mid-muffler.

Not my video...and I lose too
