This weekend I am going to call to see if we will need more rooms. I currently have 25 blocked off and it seems like we are going to eat those up.

You know the adrenalin rush you get for several seconds as you hit XXX speed and XX trap time on a quarter mile blast?

Now, picture that same adrenalin rush, but have it last for 20-minutes.

Instead of stopping at the end of the quarter mile? Tap your brakes, heel and toe a downshift to third, turn your steering wheel (strange for you I know) and go screaming around a corner at 70+ mph as you floor it again.

Rinse, repeat.

Do not forget to have someone with some skills (Chriscar comes to mind) give you a ride in the passenger seat around the track. So you realize just how capable our chassis are of ripping around corners. Because right now, you have no idea whatsoever how well our cars can negotiate corners at incredibly high speeds. No clue. You're gonna be stunned.

20-minutes of adrenalin fueled stupid car fun.

The road course was always the focus point in past conventions. And its rare to have a bunch of b chassis cars on a track all at once. I used to drag race but lost interest in it after after road racing. Much more focus in driver skill then just going fast in a straight line for a few seconds. Yea your car has more HP then mine, but can you keep up while hot lapping?

I can agree with him, no amount of giddyness is like ripping around a course with a talented driver that knows teh boundries of a car and his abilities.

Can't wait. I haven't really been on the forums much, but I drove the NX 12 hours from Ohio to Nebraska in 2010 for The Convention, so you better believe I'll be there for 2012!

See ya there

Is there a registration list/page?

If not, I think for tracking purposes at least there should be one to see who and how many will be coming along w/what cars.
