Layout should be CCW 13 both days, which is a fun change of pace if you have been running with those screwy CW13-only extremist HPDE groups.

That's my wife's birthday weekend. I asked if she wanted to go to Buttonwillow for her birthday.....she didn't think it was nearly as funny as I did.
Rent an RV? That's what we planned to do for hers, except Super GT didn't allow camping, so I ended up skipping the event because I wasn't just going to lug the Stripper around the desert.
... and not my race car either!

Just signed up a couple days ago. I'm finally going to get to tech a day early since I took Friday off. I've been wanting to run CCW 13 so this is going to be a blast.
Usually, the track also has a test n' tune, so it's a few hundred to run the track, which is why I usually bring up a halfway decent set, and the race set. I'm not really looking for pace, just to see what the course is offering and just get some seat time and consistency down. No groups, so if you've got the fuel, just fill 'er up and go for an hour or whatnot.

I'll be there Race Directing, as well as getting a morning session with my KBM Boss 302. Feel free to come over and say hello. I still look like my profile pick, but with even more grey/white hair. :eek:

Make sure your looking down or you may miss Adam. :D:D

I'm not going to make it, some A-hole tried to steal my trailer and destroyed the hitch trying to get the lock off. They used a bottle jack and some pry bars, so I got to say the Proven Locks hitch lock works! But now I need to torch the hitch off and weld a new one on...

That sucks Don - it’s too bad crime pays here in Cali. Thanks for mentioning that coupler lock - I haven’t seen that style. I have one on the way based on your “product review”

You realize taunting the Race Director isn’t wise, right??

😉

That said - very sorry to hear about what happened, and hope you’re able to make it next month.
