    I'm planning on being there with my 85 Omni. It will be my first time so I cant help you with the inspection thing. You can however get a WV inspection sticker on any licensed and insured car even if its from out of state provided it will pass WV's inspection which can be easy or hard depending on which station you take it to.

    Got my Mini Monster back together. Didn't test drive it, just put it on the trailer and not unloading til I get there. I need to get at least one race in before something breaks.

    Awesome! If you see someone with a red VR4 come say hi. This will be my first time,too.

    So I can take my PA registered car and get a WV inspection? I wonder what PA would think of that lol would be convenient though, especially as WV doesn't do emissions.

    ps any tips on what station to go to in Morgantown? My car is missing a few parts if you know what I mean.

    Every time I look at the weather forecast the chance for rain goes up. Should have quit looking three days ago I guess.

    I have made every event this year. Drove the olds to all but 1 and took a 95 stang I bought. Been pretty fun this year! It started raining about mid way through the last event, completely rained the next one out and now Saturday looks like a wash. Sucks! Got a new set of slicks I'm dying to try out!

    Staff said race is on for tomorrow. Chance of rain is morning only and clear afternoon. The car is ready and I hope it will stay together for more than one run.

    I'm still planning on being there and Chris is bringing his Camaro. My brother can't make it with the trailer so we hope at least one of our cars will survive enough to make the trip back home. Does anyone know if you can leave a car there overnight if you break?

    I'm going out the door now but its raining cats and dogs here. For some reason I'm humming the theme to Gilligan's Island "for a three hour tour, a three hour tour."

    I had a blast! 300 mile round trip with 5 nitrous passes and didn't break a thing. Already have a few ideas for next years races.

    Video is poor since the spectators were so far from the track but maybe you can see someone you know on the return lane lol. The only car I recognized was mgtf289's. Here are a few minutes of racing.





    Here is my last race of the day vs a small white (Honda?) two door. It sounded way better than mine did taking off that's for sure.

    I was going to head down but I figured the car count was going to be lower than normal because of the weather.

    I will be back out next summer running harder then ever. hehe
