Not many came in this morning because fellow racers decided to ignore what was said at Orlando and posted on Div2 Facebook and cut in front of the racers that did the right thing! The parking guy gave numbers to the racers that honored the Div2 Directors instructions, so do we park first or do the racers that didn't follow the rules get a free pass? It's about time someone from NHRA does the right thing and shows they want our business!

We got here about 5:30 and we are # 55. So I guess those 60 or so rigs that do not have a number are going to move out of the way and let all of us in first! We all know that’s gonna happen!

Jim and Pam Marshall walked from the road course to starting line and back to road course and it was 2.2 miles. I guess we will be towing our stockers up like we had to do at Chicago a few years ago when we had to park at the NASCAR track. That was the last time we have been to Chicago! Could be our last trip here, too!

Mack your wife is correct! I wish I would've read this before I spent the last hour scanning the world wide web lol.

Hopefully we have a trooper or sheriff's dept. on here to clear this up... I will ask my wife tonight... She was a Dep..Sheriff for over 20 years. She will also know...
Heard on the radio on the way to Gville its a new law just implemented on Monday. It’s for real. $250. Jim
