I'm hoping for an LMP3 test with the IMSA Lites, doubt it but it would be a nice surprise to see.

Any word from Eric/Meg, Tony or Thomas for this year?
Errbody is coming. Even UA Friday night.

And the verdict is NO grass took, but the straw is still there. Joeb's levees are starting to fade though.
And the dirt flat-hatters left their mark, track is black with rubber

F4 is a pretty cool event, missed the starts but they run a standing start. Good racing and they make a good noise from the HPD 2.0.

Our spot was stolen by a couple of flat-landers but they don't come for Petit. Drunken postman sighting but did get some news from him. Tickets were UPS'd out yesterday so expect them soon.

Additional FYI, especially for joeb or any other travelers, gas is already running out in Atlanta and it's going to get worse for a couple weeks. Passed 6 stations already with blanks on the price signs and bagged pumps. Apparently it burst in western Alabama and could take a few weeks for 'normal' service. It impacts the whole East coast but GA, AL, NC and SC are supposed to be the biggest hit.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll try and fill up when I can south of Atlanta.

Go far south, I'm 25 miles outside the city to the south and most of the stations here are dry already.

Also, thinking about firing up the dehydrator and maybe smoker next weekend, any interest in some smoked or whiskey jerky? Beef not deer, or some Louisiana mystery meat.

scottypinthemix should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I know it's impossible to predict weather this far out, but I'm diggin' what this looks like at the moment.

Was hesitant to post or think about it too much, superstitious baseball guy, but the rain today and next weekend make me feel a little better. Too much nice weather in a row makes me feel like we'd be punished for it later.

Plus the grass at the track is seriously brown and crisp, need some rain to keep the dust down and soften everything up a bit.

There's a "state of emergency" in GA already and it's more than the ATL; try North GA and soon to be Eastern seaboard, if they don't get their $hit fixed. We're seeing some hiked prices and I've already heard of some shortages over here. The Colonial Pipeline runs right through Athens (right behind where my boys play soccer, actually). They've got a week and a half to have something back to "normal". If not, no one is going anywhere.

Until today, even the freaking Kudzu was welting around here. Those temps look a little warm, but I'll take dry then, with lower 80s over 90s and rain from now until then.

Y'all are scaring me about fuel now. Would it make a difference if I took 59 to 285 instead of coming from the south and taking 85 through ATL?


Or should I just bring my 2 5 gallon cans?
