Two questions for you;

1. Do you know if numbers will be assigned or can you choose your own?

2. Someone I can pit with as I will be on my own?

I walked right by your rig several times, didn't know it was you. I had fun at this race, I didn't get the result I was hoping for, I made too many mistakes. I'm hoping to make the next two rounds. A friend ended up coming out to help, he's hoping to ride the next one. He took some video, I'm waiting for him to e-mail the files to me so I can post them.
