That's going to be a pile of fun now.

I assume you're going to have the new stuff in there over the winter months? Oh yeah...that's mostly a bunch of rain for you guys on the coast right?

Was hoping you had the new motor ready to go in? I'm dying to hear the new one running in there.

Hello Jim. Knowing you have all that (retirement) time on your hands now, I was looking in to see if there's an update on your 68.

How are things progressing my friend?

That's awesome. I'll bet that was fun to do those laps in the pace car.

You guys are lucky to have that and other race tracks right n your backyard like that.
