We have a double national event coming up starting on July 1st and you still have time to get in on the most fun solo event you can do in the pro solo event. Get signed up and come out and have a blast! JY

If you haven't ever done one, I highly recommend it. They will also have a class to get you familiar with the tree and format. They are my favorite of all the national events.

And you'll want the class if for no other reason to get used to the tree they use. Might not be the same as a tree locally for the drag strip.

Never took mine out of the truck from Charlotte. I figured it worked there we'll just keep that MOJO going.

Great job and thank you to everyone.

Makes me so proud to see the Massachusetts people say it is a must attend event for them, have people travel from Texas and Wisconsin because of the positive reviews in past years, and so forth. It truly is a destination event on the national schedule, which I'm sure none of us envisioned 10 years ago. A lot of that is because JY aims so high and does so much work while ALWAYS being positive and friendly. It really sets the tone for every facet of our events.

The courses were fantastic, too.

Yes, thank you everyone that worked so hard this event. I'm going to try to jump back in and help a little more next year with it.

Great times.

The heat was rough though. Thought I was going to lose it on Saturday afternoon. Was showered and in bed by 8.....Didn't walk course til Sunday.

Vids if anyone wants them:

+ infinity on that.

So many people talk about how much they love the event and it's a cant' miss date on their schedule and others talk about how they regret they can't make it BECAUSE they hear how great it is.

Thank you guys.
Had a blast and even with my crappy finish, I still had fun and loved the courses. This was my co-driver's 1st time there and he's a believer and wants to come back for a local.
