I've been invited to again serve as your Series Director for the 2009 NASA Nationals.

I'm not sure if I'll be racing this year, but I'll be out there trying to make it fun/safe/fair for all of you. Looking forward to meeting new friends and seeing old ones.

I might have a lot to say.. But I guess with what I have taken on, I don't have room to talk! [Big Grin]

For what it's worth, I felt you have done an excellent job the past two seasons. The things you checked were relevant. I think you were smart to ask class leaders and owners of the different cars to see what people were actually doing to illegally increase their cars performance. Keep up the good work!

It's Utah. Why are you typing with a Canadian accent?

i think nasa would greatly benefit from having new mazda parts in the tech shed and being able to compare them to parts on competitors cars this yr. Also did you guys ever invest in a shock dyno?

We'll see. Depends on what the doctors say ( I have a herniated disc in my neck that could apparently migrate and put pressure on my spinal cord in a wreck). I'm going to some specialists soon.

15 cars? It's still a ways away. The economy sucks. The most populous part of the country is 1900 miles away... blablabla. Those are the only excuses I have on the tip of my tongue.

Based on what I've read about entries across the country. It seems on par. I suspect we'll end up with 45-50 entries.

You mean just like last year? And the year before?

Unknown. I'll look into it though.

Jason,

Since you aren't spending all of that money racing. Go out and buy a shock dyno instead. Aren't you fully committed to this job? [duck]

(I may end up being the first backmarker with a full teardown at tech) [Big Grin]

But honestly, thank you for taking on this thankless task. Get your neck straightened out and come race with me.

Thanks again!

31st in the nation. If I could keep the car on the track and put on the oil cap I could be in the top 20.

Thanks Sean,

Just ordered the shock dyno. That credit card you gave at registration has enough on it right?
