I think not.
James Stewart won his heat race "handily" (spelling Rob?) and in the main event, getting the hole shot and keeping it proved it was his night to shine.

FYI:
If anyone ever decides to attend one of these,,,,,,just get the nose-bleed section seats.
Goddamn chuckleheads in the lower levels felt the need to stand up when there was stadium seating. No need to stand.
Diann and I spotted some unused seats up high behind the starting line and we had a great view of the entire track all the time.
The pomp and circumstance combined with the racing IS better than sitting at home watching it on TV.

I'll go back next year too if the level of competition is as close as it is this year.

Really,,we ought to go in together and reserve a skybox.
Price would be workable with 15 or 20 of us.

Rick, I did a quick search about getting a skybox.
It's more than I was lead to believe.
Pricing starts @ about $175 for bare bones nothin supplied if 20 people sign up,,,, to many times that amount for servants, booze and pretty girls.

Still sounds fun.

Just talked to Mark about the Treeman Ride. I'm on call and told him I'm sick about not being able to join in.

I'm going to shoot for a kitchen pass, but as I'm currently printing my flight schedule for the week I'm probably going to have to make it a day trip on the DL, and just shoot the c.h.i.t. with you FF's at Mark's for a while and head home.

Barney, I still have these KTM rad guards I'll bring for you.

Madhouse, I have something for you too Sir.
