I am planning on bringing the FNSS out. Haven't seen much track time, but track time is better than setting at home I guess.

LSx BG KY Day 1.
I think we have18 running.
Qual Rnd 1 - not so good for me. Left line 200rpm low and car shut down at 3-4shift from poor DA and Deep stage. Will fix in morning.
When things were running correctly-ran 0.006 of index and 0.09 RT.
.
Was able to meet some new C5ers-good chatting.

They threatened to kick me off the track if I didn't slow down because I don't have a cage or roll bar, so I'm racing on street tires now and granny shifting. Instead of 11.0 index, I'll try 12.0. Sucks, because I had a decent shot at running consistent 11.0s.

Tim E, it was nice meeting you in the staging lanes. BTW, I'm Tim E as well.

They apologized many times for the mess up. It started moving much faster. It's a great event.

Would have liked to meet you.

Tim
you cant start a competition when you cant even get the competitors through the front gate. they were processing cars at the rate of about 1 per 15 minutes at 7:30 (late) when they finally started getting a few cars through the gate. they allowed people coming in the wrong way from the right side that were not registered to criss cross to the left through the line of people who had been registered for a month. the girls at the pre-registration desk were still lost at 10:00 a.m. when i left.
how can you have people posting times at a competition when you have had cars sitting in line for three hours? it should have taken less that 30 minutes to process the cars that were waiting at the gate at 6:30.
they should have been ready, but if they were not ready, they should have held up the start of the events til they could get some type of stability to the screw up at the front gate.
it was like there were two events going on. one to get into the dang thing and the other to see if you could actually figure out what to do once you finally got in and realized that the event started on time even though it was obvious that they were having a melt down at the front gate.
i have helped run events before and things do happen. the main thing to remember when putting on an event is that this event is for the guy who has been working on his car and planning his vacation to go and run this event. if the front gate debacle had happened and they held up the start, it would have been better. you cant take my money and not allow me into the event when im there waiting to get in.with your explanation, i should just be ready to give up a the first day of any event i have entered because the event staff isnt ready to move some metal through the gate.

Had a great time at the event despite the HEAT and minor confusions about when to be where. The 3S Challenge was awesome!

The heat was tough.. I had two blower cars there and must have spent 120 bucks in ice.
