That is certainly big news. I really hope that is going well for Jason. Life always throws unexpected changes at us...

They make posts on Instagram, Facebook, etc during each race. Some teams stream stuff. There isn't anything real organized or official that I know of.

Almost time! The Dart should be fine as long as the transmission doesn't crap out. I have begrudgingly agreed with Bob not to dial the boost up until we know everything's working fine. So maybe we'll throw the other wastegate spring in Saturday night and blow up in spectacular fashion Sunday morning...

It would be interesting to know what RPM and top speed the car is reaching on the Ulman Straight.
Contrast that with your speed through the turn 7 hairpin.

Have a great time. Sebring is a classic race track, really cool that you and other slant six folks are doing this.

Getting excited now! Getting to race at Sebring is a bucket list thing for Adam.

Looking forward to it. Just wish I could have some seat time. Just can't justify the expense of updating my personal safety equipment for one race

Made it to Florida. Light traffic and fun driving the 62. Pretty smooth on the hwy. Got a few work things to do this morning and will head to Charlie's place around mid afternoon...

Slant on,
Lou
