This event rocked. The Ohio/Indiana guys are top notch people. Not a bad attitude in one of them. It was great to meet new AI faces and only wish we ran with them the entire season. They have a really great series developing and I'm very glad we're running with them a couple times this season. The field was pretty large with ~23 AI/X cars running. It's rumored that Watkins Glen will have 40 cars, so things are really gaining momentum on the East coast (OH/Indy included)

Don and Jason - you guys rule. Thanks for the help this weekend. Your respective wives must be the most understanding people on the face of the planet.

Pearson - Considering the relatively minor amount of track time that John has, he's flying out there. John has come a long way in a short amount of time. Also considering he's running a virtually stock front end on the car, a stock motor, and a slow paint job ( :D ), his lap times are impressive and will only continue to drop. You be the man Pearson. Your a man of constant sorrow. (BTW - I couldn't find one of my Rhino ramps. Did you happen to run across it on Sunday anywhere?)

Smeltzer - I had an absolute blast out there with you on Sunday. I was absolutely amazed at how well you move through traffic! I really think that if there wasn't a yellow flag, the race outcome could have been different. You are a great driver and a great racer. I can't wait to run side-by-side with you again at Summit Point. :D Man that was a lot of fun!!!! Mark my words - big things will come of Dean.

Pantyass - I didn't really see you on track... EVER... the entire weekend. I'm not sure how in all of the practice, qualifying, and race sessions, I didn't run into you on track!! What's up with that?! I normally spend a lot of time around you. (no comments from the Corduroy Inquisition, please)

Hoover - I'm wearing my new team shirt to work today and people think I'm weird. Congrats on a great weekend buddy.

Jay (wreckm) - have you ever considered selling your T-shirt artwork? heh heh heh :moon:

Tone - your dad told me your quarter panel should only be around $6-7G's to fix. I'll send you the bill for my front fender too - it should be much less than that. :D :D (kidding obviously)

Jimmy - gut the mystic. You're ready for AI.

Thanks to Hoover, Schlickenmeyer, Eric Mehan, Lawrence Mansier, and the rest of the NASA Ohio/Indy team for putting on a great race weekend. I know everybody really appreciates what you do for the series.

Hey all, I just got home. Jim and I decided to camp out last night in WV. The high winds were incredible.

Thanks for the kind words Bryan. You guys are a great model to follow.

Dean Smeltzer is the man!!! You were flying out there. I'll get some vids as soon as I recover from this weekend.

Ohio-Indiana folks were all top notch guys. I look forward to racing with them at Summit Point.

Thanks, Bryan. If I can get things straightened out at home, I'll be out there with you guys. Whereever home is going to be...

I will definitely be at Summit in June (since I'm basically walking distance). Whether I'm driving HDPE or just spectating, I'll help you guys out in the pits anyway I can.

Glad you folks had fun out there. Sorry I had to miss it, but I spent 19 hours in a Cat skid-steer burying my pool. Yeah!

Dean! You are the man! 2nd on Sunday in your second race ever! Dayum!

And congrats to Hoover, Shugg, Tone and Schlickenmeyer on their wins and to everybody else involved.

So this is where all the SVT AI guys are hanging out!

Dean certainly put some hurt on the AI group. Now I'm going to have to go ahead with that 347 I have been threatening people with just to keep up!

It was definitely a great time and it really was a great race considering that we had 25ish cars start and only one slight car to car contact between a couple of yahoos in the front! Just think....if this was an A-Sedan race we would have lost 1/3 of the field to mechanical problems and another 1/3 in car to car contact. Then again we would have had to be at the nationals to get this many cars together.

I'm looking forward to running at Summit Point with the whole Virginia group! Just need to make a few minor changes between now and then....... ;)

Good friends are hard to come by these days.John, this is for you!! We still need a head count for dinner at Summit, remember Amy has the best meat in town! And we have gazuoy people coming so get us the numbers. THE FULL MOON RULES !

I wouldn't call it a full moon. It was only half a moon. I guess we need to train these city slickers a little bit more!!!:thumbsup:

As for the weekend. MAN WHAT A HOOOOT !!!!
I wish I had the first 2 laps to do over again. I have a vac leak and it is spiking my boost on my brakes and it locked my brakes several times over the weekend. Thus letting Shugg, Dean( great job dude!!) and Jones by me early in the race sun. I would love to have been there to mix it up with you 2 late in the race. You won't be so lucky next time !!!!!

This is a small taste of what is to come of AI's future!!!
I wouldn't even make the comparison to Asedan.:flush:
We have WAY more class, way more freindship,and WAAAAAYYYY more fun!!!!

With a few small exceptions everyone did a SUPER job over the weekend. If any one has any concerns or questions from the weekend please feel free to contact Dan or I .

It was great to meet all of the new guys and put faces with cars and posts on the boards. I am SO proud of the quality of cars and people we have drawn to AI!!!:thumbsup:

As for the Summit Point STEAK FEST we came to a total of $8 per person or $15 per couple. This includes Rib Eye, Baked tater, rolls, and some sides. Bring your favorite bev and join the family atmosphere and try to block out all of Pantas's :bs: !!

I agree!! I wish we ran with you guys every event. What a great bunch of guys.:thumbsup:

I knew I would love W2W racing but nothing prepared me for the rush I got from being out there with all you. It seems like it should be illegal to feel that ultimate high.

I will have to say starting from the back of the pack on Saturday was something I will always remember and I wish I would have caught all the action on tape. I was kinda bummed about having to start back there but it taught me a lot. The biggest thing was that most out there are real racers, but there are some that are not. I'm not talking about skill/speed but just attitude.

Shugg - I don't think I've ever had so much fun chasing someone like I did you. I kept waiting for you to slip but you never did. Always smooth and under control. Not once did you block me or change your line and to me that is a true mark of a great champion and a real racer!:thumbsup:

Pearson - I want to thank you for all the advise and help this weekend. You taught me a lot and I will always be greatful. Thank you again for being a class act and giving more than enough room to get by you while I was chasing Shugg. Yes, another real racer.:thumbsup:

Hoover - It was great meeting you and I wish we could have mixed it up on Sunday. I understand why you weren't up there with us since I had the same problems on Saturday with the same guy. I just don't understand some peoples ideas of what this series is about. :(

Pantas - Yeah, I had heard rumors about you and your car. I guess I found out they were all true. ;) :D All kidding aside, it was great meeting you and running with you on the track. :thumbsup:

I also want to thank Wilson/Whitehead and Tone for taking care of this wide eyed rookie during his first race weekend. For those of you that didn't get to sample Tone's cooking, it was awesome!!:thumbsup:

Thanks to everyone else that gave me a helping hand and incouragement. :cool:

Hey Mark! Glad you made it over here to our little corner of the net. A great bunch of guys hang out here.

I can't wait till you get that 347 in there. It's amazing what a few ponies do for you. You didn't think I was just going to let you just glide through the year did you? ;)

If you see me do something on track that you don't feel is right PLEASE come to me and tell me. Such the problem we had sun might have been headed off if it was delt with sooner if we knew it was a problem. Basicly what I want to say is SPEAK UP IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM!!!

That 'punkin' car is blinding me in the sunlight and made me go 2-3 seconds slower this past weekend... can we have the 'punkin' stemmed and possibly turned into a 'squash'?

I agree completely with SIUNARA! Some of the AI drivers were simply driving WAY to fast! Some might even say out of control. I'm assuming the situation you were refering to was the orange car in the front that was driving so far over his head that he ended up going off the track on turn 11! Thankfully most other drivers were cool headed enough to just take the correct line and pass him on the inside. Hopefully some pulled him aside after the race on Sunday and gave him the business......

I would suggest that in future races I be allowed to set the pace and everyone else just follow behind. It would really make things a lot easier!! :thumbsup:

Ahhhh, come on Mark. Hoover's smoking/skidding tires were so purty. ;)

True, I just figured he was takin' the punkin' back to the patch...:D

You know what they say... "You can take the punkin out of the patch, but you can't take the patch out of the punkin...:thumbsup: "

Or was that stem out of the punkin? I am not sure about these hillbilly sayings...:D :D

Thanks for the encouragement, homies. Ask Shugg.... it was killing me not to be there at BR. I did pick up the short block today during lunch.

There is only one way to slow Hoov down and I made him the offer at CMP...................drive my '65. He said he would before season is over. That will be interesting.
