Maybe this would be a good year to see it live....I have seen zero "TV" hype for this race???? Heck maybe I can wear an old race hat and shirt and sneek into one of the bigshot's private party's;)

I saw Ryan walking in the IRL pits. I also saw Marty Fioka walking around. I saw Robbys TT had 40" Toyo's on it with what looked like 18" rims(I forgot to look at the Rim size). I missed the TL and Greaves Pro-4. Wide open Baja had a booth.

I saw alot of good crashes, was right next to all of them. Was standing right above the track when Helio backed it into the wall. Watched Boris Said fly by on with the whole car engulfed in flames. He got out fine but later saw him in the pits with his upper left and right arm wrapped up.

Yeah, he was, that was insane.......Reminded me of when Dale Jr's Vette burned up a few years back up at Sonoma.

Oh, and this thing was out there:



I remember when it passed overhead really slowly, thinking how many people around the world have looked up out of their tent or cave or bunker or whatever, glanced up, saw the bomb doors open up, heard that whistling sound and before they could say "allah akabakalaka" they became fertilizer:)
