Wish I was there too, but my car is still .3 (at least) too slow to make me feel it's worthwhile for a tow of nearly 1700 miles (one way!). I'm working on that, because I want to venture out there to at least have the experience of racing the "Big Go"!!!! Good luck and God Bless all of you who are out there, and I hope you Texan's got away before that Hurricane hit?

Okay Scott, was that smirk a pick on me for having closer to 600 miles less to travel than you do? If so, then hah hah bud. However, you have to remember your car is much closer to running .9 under your index (circa Sonoma 2017) than mine is (Pomona 2016).

I won't make such a trip (on my more meager budget), to just make qualifying and class run(s). I want to have a valid shot at the final qualified field of 128. Moreover, your racing budget is broader than mine too (for now).

Since Stock (as of 12:45am pst), has 161 entries this year instead of 169 from last year, it might not take a run like Ben Wenzel's -0.893 under index to qualify this year. On the other hand Tibor Kadar, BJ Graham, you and Mike (plus improvements from last years non-qualified field numbers), will likely raise the bar to where a -0.92? may be needed to be 128th this year????

Good luck, and safe travels bud....

Here in the stacking line it is partly cloudy and 60s this morning. We got a little rain last night, then now it is clearing, then more rain this afternoon and tomorrow. We kept hearing rumors yesterday afternoon that we were going to park today, but I could not find anything official. Nothing is happening yet this morning. I sent out my spy (Larry) to check out if anything will happen today! I really hope they make the sensible decision to go ahead and start parking today!!
