Went Great, Hopefully we can get some photo's from the event. I ran the same tires I had on at Miller and I think the 3000 mile tow home dried them out a bit and I was fighting getting the car to turn in most of the morning. I also for the first time was spinning the tires in 3rd gear. In the afternoon the track heated up, the Horesepower fell off a bit but the extra grip stopped the tire spin so much and she rattled one off under 2:30! Post pictures in a bit.
