What a good time I had! Ray Goppold and I met Bill B and Rob to ride up to the speedway together. This was my first time for the sidecar events. Awesome people and machines.... Really enjoyed the Vintage racing rigs more so than the F1's.... lots of action! Actually toying with the idea of getting more involved Wink ... wife wasn't impressed.. prolly cause I told her I bought her a racing side car for our anniversary today and that she can be my sidecar monkey. She looked at a race or two on you tube and shot me down with that idea... still working on it...
Looking forward to Summit... Thanks Bill and Rob

We'll keep working the problem Big Grin
Glad you guys could make it. Definitely a great time. Sort of a mini mini mini Summit Point. Laughing
Went up on Sunday again and saw more great racing.

Oh well, I guess I'll just keep going in the same general direction, and see where I end up Question



Well, how about that Exclamation Ain't that the same lighthouse that Forrest Gump ended up at Question (yes, it is, up in Port Clyde, Maine)
