We just didn't have enough to get around JD in the semi. We had the power to but just could not figure out the greasy track at 5000' da. We were all good in the back half of track, just couldn't get to the 1/8 like normal.

Yep I here you. Thx Bro! We did our good deed for the day by spreading some ashes for a very grateful family in a exhibition pass after the final. We did in style for him at 236 mph.

Just changing planes now in Calgary. A quick one hour flight back to Abby now. Can almost taste a glass of Green Stone Brewing product now. Hopefully get fast list caught up today.
