scottypinthemix should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Petit Le Mans 2019

It will be here before you know it.
I haven't taken any real time off work since Sebring, so I'm ready, already.

I was thinking, "MAN, this is early", but then I realized, man, this is early!

Looking forward to it Scotty. How's the weather looking?

Might have to start my cigar buying to let them rest and figure out my beer selection. I've burned out on IPAs hand-in-hand with the decrease in quality products. And of course hit Cabela's and see if there's new stuff I need for this year.

I'm debating on whether or not I should try and drive my wife's car up. It is definitely more spacious and comfortable, but it does have one less pedal. Although that could be a blessing in ATL traffic. Thinking about a peach pass too to make the drive easier. Not sure if I'll be joined by my brother or dad this year.

I've never been an IPA fanatic. There are a few I really like.
We still have just over 2 cases of Hopslam stored away for race week.
I am, however, a big time imperial stout fanatic.
Started the collection already. (It helps to live walking distance from Scofflaw brewing)

I'm over that was almost daily but somehow I think they wouldn't be happy with me stopping in the city car to pick up some beer. Also, those guys SUCK at parking and lining the street over there, almost saw a couple cars get smashed by a 53' truck making a delivery around the corner off of Chattahoochee.

More importantly, is it a Mazda with a turbo? Cause that may have to park in the lot sir, there's a lot of camping gear to burn up with the inevitable turbo fire.

Non-turbo Mazda for the wife's CX-5. And typically there are very few turbo fires when a car is parked with the engine off....

You say that but is that true? I think they have found a way before

It is at the point when the engine is switched off and parked that turbo fires can be a greater risk.

How many drivers of cars with turbos take the time to let their car idle, and cool the turbo at the end of a journey?

The owner's manual of Saabs contained advice to let the car idle for 2-3 minutes at the end of a journey to let the turbo cool down.

While I've come around on several, IPAs, by definition, are gross.

I don't think I can fit my ice chest in the Accord, so it's a nonstarter. Wife's CX5 on the other hand can handle more than all my gear. And possible Evan a few IPA's
