looks like a much better venue for a show than Willow Island in Madison, WI was. I like how you're able to run on the track!

Good, Fast, Cheap, but you can only pick two!

Great show. Suede & chrome next to $500k customs. Rat rods, revivals and SoCal flair. Tons of todays' high end machines there including the Ring Bros 69 Camaro Street Machine of the Year 2008. Air Ride had some trick vehicles there running the Auto Cross hardcore. The NASCAR track event was super cool. I did over 100 MPH in places with my foot into it just haulin' under full boost. The safety truck paced you at 60. I just sand bagged for a bit and then did an Earnhardt and took the hi line. The 18 degree bank is a huge transition from the apron. Bob blew his drivehaft running right in front of me and I got a spray of gear oil. He dropped to the apron fast to avoid oiling down the track. His rear end was built by a respectable firm and guaranteed to 1,000 HP. A close inspection showed the pinion was stressed cracked and gave up. Everyone in the place drove past his Chevelle afterwards but he took the teasing pretty well.

Next year I'm taking the Caprice. So many cool old cars showing off their character with patina and pitted chrome.
