Looks like tiring fun.

It was very fun, just the heat but I was getting pretty acclimated near the end of the week.
Ready to move to SC now!  :yes:
Marks Barracuda's best time was 10.7ish seemed slower than what it's done before but everyone's times were slower due to the heat/humidity and altitudes.

LOL! Thanks Brad! I also liked the "Jim and Nick's BBQ" pic and will tell the boys that they've been holding out on the old man! I'll also have to rag Mark about those pants! Beautiful scenery, eh? Looks like you guys had a great time!  :twothumbsup:

Brad, can you explain in more detail the "impound" procedure?  I know the fastest cars get put in "impound".  I guess I'm not sure what that is exactly.  Are they just put in a certain area and only people in that area can help them work on the car? 

IIRC in years past, some people would enter a really slow car just so they were on hand to tune and work on the really fast cars.

The impound area is close to the staging lanes usually wide open for everyone to see. Taped off with yellow caution tape. You are only allowed the driver and one other crew guy aka the navigator to work on the car as far as I understand it. I think it's the top 3 cars in each class.

It used to be a whole crew working on them.  That's what they wanted to get away from. Makes sense.
