I think the most impressive thing about that day was the 107 degree heat BEFORE the heat index. Pretty good for two 30 year old cars running 5 times in their heat.
Even more funny was all the comments and questions by various people out there. Bucky missed a gate one time and the guy calling it in, called the car "DNF on the 240 z, or a 280 z, whatever that orange car is."
The announcer for the Heat Bucky ran in made a comment during one of Bucky's runs how rare the GTs were and here were two of them represented.
I plan on going to check it out, but next year, I'm afraid. I'd like to meet some fellow Oplers, and my 6 year old Andrea wants to see all the pretty little cars. lol.
As for the rain, I know you guys want to get to the cones, but "Thank God!" Some of the ground cracks would have swallowed my GT!
So, does anyone know if it is on or not? We have a group that is planning on going up and seeing if it's still going. We will be there around 9-10 and if it's cancelled we'll just have to go to the boats or a movie or something. Hope to see someone there. We'll be by the Opels.
Sorry, I can't make it. My basement flooded. It's never flooded, EVER. We got lot's of rain. My house has a full walkout on a steep grade. The water used the underground power line and sent all the water in the front yard to under the basement floor. I have a mell-of-a-hess. Water pump fried, looked like a roman candle spewing.
Tomorrow is waterproofing day. Digging 70' of trenches for drain tile in the mud. Wish I could go. I live 15 minutes north of the stadium.
