I know I could probably figure this out if I researched it - but I was curious if someone could break down the schedules and division championships.

I am in region 4, great lakes division. I assume I can run all regionals and go for the GLD regional championship, OR run all the Region 4 nats and go for the Region 4 National championship? How does it work?

Thanks DB -

So as soon as I log enough National points, then I can no longer be a champion of anything unless I win the runoffs [Razz] That the jist of it?

You can be the GLD National Champ, providing you get the most GLD national points [yep]

Psst - Don't tell anyone, but if you run ever weekend at Nelson Ledges and do reasonably well, you have a good shot of winning the coveted Kryder Cup Championship. Mainly regionals, but those are a good way to practice for the Nationals...as long as those Kucera boys don't run you off the track! [Razz] [Razz]

I have it on good authority that only 1 tire is required on the pavement to make a good pass.

Although, there was that ONE time........

Hey Charlie by the and of that race they started to put cones down so people wouldn't think that was a short cut.

What did you get your lap times down to? 59 sec. [cheerful]

Eric sometimes you drive like your riding a motorcycle [Big Grin] but so do I!

Plus, when done right, it muddies the windshield on the 2nd place car to eliminate any further threats on your lead..... [Eek!]

Bob, That may be. But, thankfully I don't ride my motorcycle like I drive. [fight]

Eric,I used to ride a bike harder then I drive my car and have alot of scars to prove it.If I drove like I ride a bike I don't think to many people would like me. [Big Grin] Plus my wife wont let me have a bike any more(get arrested once)pulling a wheelie at 150mph and the police aren't to friendly.

Have to call your wife to get you out of jail,
!priceless! [fight]

You Ford guys out here too? This weather is killing me. Why is it snowing in the desert? At least a few laps around Speed Street helps pass the time.

Hey Dan,I was never any good at mooning out car windows,but I know a guy that is the KING of that he's name is Dave Jones.

I was always the driver and I will tell you what there isn't a window that he can't get a full moon out of!

If any of you are interested in running a few laps at Speed Street, its pretty likely that we'll be heading there again. Let me know.

The place in Sterling heights is called Kart-to-Kart. I'm guessing Speed Street is in Arizona where all the Ford & Chrysler grunts are hiding out for the winter.
