Mile Marker-1 Oct. 11th

Mile Marker-1 .......It looks as if I will be the only 2010 Camaro in attendance.,I was hoping to have more camaro compadres there. Now the pressure is on to make the 2010 be represented to the fullest. There will be plenty of 4th gens, Hell if I could have got my LS3 01 there too I would have.

Anyone else planning on going as a spectator at least?

Thats one from this board. We cant wait.


Wife just looked again and is happy to say there will be 2 2010s in attendance. That takes a little edge off.

Someone I know went 217mph in this event with his Ford GT

A Porsche went around 221mph.
