So hold up...who's not going? Clany...yer goign but not racing? Tex is going right? What's he riding? I heard some folks were backing out. So many questions.

I'm headed down Thursday morning with Andrew and Yukio, frantically working all this week on getting my bike together. It's got a PPG make over and I gotta track down a 428 chain by tomorrow or I'm screwed. Can't wait...never been to VIR before.

See you there!

Sweet. Van is packed to meet Evil and Lonewolf. Getting the TZ out of the basement and through the yard was interesting. Remembered that I should drain the water (right after i filled it) because it'll freeze tonight.

My Dad and brother might show up friday and camp with us.

BTW, I'm a nutjob. The plan is to wake up early friday morning and go for a jog around the track. Figured it would be a good way to learn it. Anyone else that wants to join me, pack a pair of running shoes.
