Snowed about an inch last night but very little stuck to pavement. By morning all about gone but it is cold enough that the witch's you know what is frozen.

Good field of SM cars at school. Pepe Pombo is here with a new driver in the black car. I saw the driver at the end of yesterday and despite having spent the entire day in the rain, he was all grin from ear to ear.

The entry information for the Tom Nehl National is on MotorsportReg.com. Hope everyone can make that race. Roebling Road is in great shape as is the entire facility. Being our one Club owned track, we need to support it. If there are enough requests, I'll work SM compliance. And I'll even disclose one compliance item, framous rods will be measured!

Dude, those are gnarly!! Like Jim said, none of it even stuck. Track surface was dry by the time we hit it. Looks like we have a good crop of SM guys coming up.

Danny, I like the second set, wouldn't they make great bracelets, or maybe a collar?
