Sure, I'll be there instructing as usual. There's a FATT the day before if you want a 3 day event. BSR was kind enough to schedule a FATT or Seat Time the Friday before all 4 Summit Point NASA events this year.

Call the BSR office at (304) 725-6512 to sign up. Oops, the website says it's full, wait list only. If you're going to be near the track on Friday anyway I'd say get on the wait list and if necessary be there Friday morning in case of no-shows, which are fairly common (particularly if it rains). Details at http://www.bsr-inc.com, recreational driving programs.

Ask to speak to Bruce (chief instructor) if you're interested in instructing, though you generally have to attend the clinic in February (by invitation, no charge). Talk to Bruce, if you have a fair amount of verifiable experience instructing you might be able to start right away - a full house requires plenty of instructors. Be forewarned, instructing at a FATT is a lot different than a NASA weekend. You'll get 2 driving sessions, plus a credit toward a Seat Time (open track) or other BSR advanced driving school. You will likely be inside a car on track pretty much all day (3 groups/4 sessions) except for the lunch break. A fair number of BSR instructors are also NASA instructors, and vice versa.

I never go to the track without it! It also works very well on my competitors.

I was considering going up on Sunday to watch and hang out. Not planning to run on track.

Turns out Summit Point was (as always) the best place to be this weekend. The track started out wet on Saturday but dried up by mid-late morning, Sunday was absolutely gorgeous. Friday night tornadoes were all over from east of the track to DC, plus a tornado hit Inwood to the west and shut down I81. Good thing I drove down early Friday morning. When I got back to Harrisburg Sunday night the main river route north was closed due to what was described on the news as possibly the worst flood ever to hit Harrisburg. Traffic was packed to my house up the alternate river route, even worse jam this morning coming back to catch the turnpike to Philly.

Don, it was nice to get to meet you this weekend. How was your drive back to Happy Valley? Sorry you missed out on Friday, it really wasn't that bad except for a downpour right after the first (instructor ) session, then late in the evening. Considering the number of no-shows, you'd have gotten in no problem as a walk-in. There's a Seat Time event the Friday before the October NASA event, your instructor status with NASA might get you in even if you've never done a BSR event or don't have a comp license.

Beau, congratulations on your 2nd on Saturday, did you win on Sunday? Hope you didn't need that mallet, I didn't get a chance to see the standing start (or the race) on Sunday.

Frank, I hate you missed the race on Sunday. It was a battle between Brian Smith and I again. This time I won I don't guess I'll use the mallet this time.
