Going to test for this race in a couple of weeks. Got a couple of things coming in the mail. That will be our test for the next ex275 race.

Everytime I have been to spennis, I have never gotten traction. Have they changed anything lately?

been a couple of years. Came down 3 times and never got a good pass, so it put a bad taste in my mouth. I was just asking. Things change and I know that. I will still be coming no matter what. Hope it is better.

Good Deal, I would like to think it is a little better then a few years ago. I took over last Jan, Seems like things are slowly but surely getting back together.

I know of 12 local cars, 5 from Oklahoma, and 1 from Houston. I'm sure we will have a good showing.

As of right now gates will open at 6 for tex275 cars only and first round qualifying at around 8. We are trying to get them to open around 5-5:30 since out of town people are coming in. I think they are having regular test n tune Saturday night also.
