I would bet they are going to try and push you into going up. Two years as the best with the best car, that would do it. Guess you will wait and see what they do?

I talked to the track promoter and he said I could come back as long as I straighten up my wheels  :D ÂÂÂ
His nephew runs a beretta at the track, the tech guy is the track promoters brother  ???  tech guy mentioned my springs do not "look" like whats on his nephews beretta.......I told him that beretta's came with different suspension and I had the FE7 (or whatever the # is)......which is much beefier and sportier than his nephews plain (basement) suspension. My cars a GT with springs from a GTZ  :D ÂÂÂ
He said he would call the local Chevy dealer and talk to them about whether Beretta's came with different suspensions.
So this may continue....I plan on racing Wednesday. We shall see.

Man, that sucks that they're trying to screw you out of your wins just because you have a dominant car.  Someone must be whining about it a lot.

And man...  Bowling Green I will never, ever forget.  I got all turned around on the way back since I had to stop for gas and got left behind.  I was one of the last ones out of the track, and after getting lost in the ghetto I didn't get back to the hotel in Louisville until like 5am.

yeah, I am done with them.
I am going to do a little traveling the rest of the season ....then hopefully run a full season with the CRA next year. They run in IN/OH. It will be some travel, but if its the only races I run I can afford it. Their schedule is usually 10 or so races a year. They treat the racers great and run a good "FAIR" series.
