I loved the way it was set up, thanks for all your hard work. Getting called up and running in the M6 street tire class was the highlight of the fest for me, eventhough I missed 3rd on my first run. I will definately be setting my car up to run in this class again next year.

The M6 owners did not set the class. We welcome all comers.

And that time was faster than all the supercharged M6 class that non- supercharged M6ers complained about.

MLEE, it was a lot of fun and the best part of the fest. I run both the AutoX and 200 class at the same time on Saturday. Would run AC then line up to drag. Was frantic but fun. Ran a 38.34 on AC then 12.44 to qualify. It was competitive and if you Look at the times posted, "THE" fastest cars did not always win. Sometimes it was driver and other times luck. But that was racing. If the car show and AutoX had been as smooth as the drags, more people would have been happier. you had heavy mods and lite mods. You had ZL1s and convertibles. Try running a Supercharged M6 Convertible with luggage and ice chest in the trunk and a trailer hitch on street tires in extreme heat on a slick track. I think I had the heaviest car at the track. I was car #234 and drew the number 1 and number 2 fastest elapse cars in the 200 class. They were fast, I was lucky. Thanks for the hard work and the tower guys were great fixed last second issues without complaint.
