Dave Kirkman and I did a "dry run" to all of our activities yesterday.

We visited the IMS, the Skillman Classic Auto Collection, the Union Jack Pub, downtown Indy, the Dallara Indycar Chassis Factory, and of course, the Clarion Waterfront.

Our ducks are in a row.

We currently sit at about 60 registrants, with some still "sitting on the fence".

Git ur done Carl. We need the King on the course!

I converted to Pertronics from points. I tried it years ago, with mixed results. I think it was a lean surge that had me skeptical before. Carb is tuned better now. If it stops raining, I'll get some road time!

Other than that, might have to mount up some burn out tires!

Safety Fast

Wash and wax, check the fluids, and I'm on my way. I should be able to get that done in 20 days (19 now).
