Guess I'll start the thread. Was a great weekend at MSRH to kick off the SoWDiv racing season, I had a blast as usual. Although I was 2 seconds a lap faster than last year's Jan event I fell many spots in the qual/finishing order. Clearly the competition has not been idle. Good clean racing around me, had a blast and hope to see you all next month again.

It was a good weekend Mike, I had couple of close calls to keep me on my toes but that was it.

I'll post some highlights to my site tonight.

See you next month.

Mike... fun running with you. Sorry about the bump at the exit of 7, but even more sorry that it seemed to help you accelerate away from me!

Nice race Caesar!

Do I turn my 99 Hard S into a killerfast SM or seek a donor?

Except for getting caught up in the melee on the first lap in Saturday's race (who locked up trying to pass on the inside coming up to the hump?), I enjoyed racing with those around me. Mike Bell especially raced me hard and clean on Sunday - great fun! Don't any of you guys even think about coming over to SRF.

Kent - no sweat, that tap was the fastest I went all weekend lol.

Kerry - Great battle on Sunday, it was really a ton of fun, I did my fastest lap on my last lap of the weekend and afterwards I was used up. Good clean racing, hope we can do it again soon.

I will post my in-car video of the carnage on the first lap on YouTube in a couple of days. Glad I missed that mess.

Looks like one of the closest and best races I've seen at MSRH. If only Keith would have waited around for everyone else. [Smile]

Good job to Taylor and Adam. You have come a long way in a short period of time. If you guys would run the last lap as good as the rest of the laps, you might not lose so many spots at the end of the race [Wink]

Or if we had motors half the size of some of those around us!

Had fun running! Gonna do some work on the silver bullet and then I will be back!

Congrats Keith and welcome to the fun Joey Pratt.

I think I could have ran faster than your car went!

Consider it an accomplishment to finish ahead of some folks with BIG MOTA!

It was fun running with you guys (Taylor/Adam/Caesar) this last weekend...

I'm in the process of reviewing the video. Need to see when it was that "Ricky Bobby" took over and I eneded up sliding up against the tires prior to the front strech...

Congrats Keith and welcome to SM Joey.
