So. Game 5 of the Western conference finals is Saturday night, and the Blackhawks could clinch. If you want to party, get downtown.

Also - Giordano's or Lou Malnati's for some pizza.

Well we made it through tech, we are class B with 2 BS laps. Same as the metSHO. So far we have just been hanging out and trying to make up for not sleeping last night. So far everyone loves the car! And Coatney, your Dino has gotten LOTS of compliments!

The car seems to be running great. Gary spun, Seanan put down some real quick times, and Jed is racing very smooth and moving up. We are running top 5 in times and are mid-pack in laps.

Well, the other engine is in. We'll let you know how it goes when we get back on the track in the morning. Until then, here's an article from Car & Driver that features us and our awesome dino skeleton!

Well, we are bringing home a trophy!

We got Judges Choice despite ended the race with being told we were butt turrible and to pack it up due to too many black flags...

It was a blast! The Geo Cup with over great! And everyone got some seat time!

For the next race we gotta work on our reliability and our cooling issues so that we dont spend 5 hours changing an engine again. It was still a lot of fun and I think the drive was worth it, but we may have a different feeling when we get home at around 5am.

On another note riding down the interstate on a couch while using wifi is pretty kick ass.
