        I know many of you feel that is too far but it doesn't bother me and we'll just split the costs for less cars.

        Let me know when the new date is hopefully I can make this one. Also night time would be best since its now going to be really hot.

        Sacramento track prep seems to keep getting worse, If they did track prep like Famoso it would be the best track on the west coast. All sacramento has is a briggs and straton 5hp motor on a $100 dollar tractor for track prep. then throughout the day the starter uses a bug sprayer to spray vht on the first 20ft of the track. Im not joking so if you go with Sacramento just make sure to let the track know we want it prepped like for an actual event.

        ( sorry about my post on the other thread had a bad day and didnt feel like putting up with others bull$#@! )

        Thank you Mark! It was an honor to get spanked by you on your fastest run of the day IIRC. I'll see you again at the next event.

        Just wanted to say you're a class act man. The easiest person I think I've ever dealt with when it comes to drag racing.

        I forgot to do that article on your car. I'll try to get it up today as a thank you.

        I don't have as much time or money invested into this as some participants, but it would have been nice to get a little more advanced notice than just an hour ago when I received a refund email from Paypal. Although I am subscribed to this thread, I haven't received a single email notification of a thread reply since 4/10. I also don't check forums on a regular basis because I run a business and that keeps me busy enough. So some sort of direct email at some point before today would have been appreciated. Not going to cry about it, though.

        Sorry, I thought I notified everyone on the forum but I forget not everyone is a regular.

        I have the forum set to automatically subscribe you so that is concerning. Great, something else to fix.

        I'll look into what happened.

        Regarding all of you that were refunded I will make sure to discount your spot at the next event to make up for it. If there is anything else I can do, get you a discount with a tuner, whatever, let me know.

        Sacramento won’t work for me though it will probably have better DA than famoso. Can I get a refund please.

        Your refund was already sent on Monday. For some reason Paypal is processing it:

        Would Fontana work for you? Where are you located?

        And not to make excuses but I just wanted you guys to understand some of the factors. This was from another vendor (pulling out 6+ cars):

        So every one of my customers backed out or have crashed their cars. So it does not look like we will be attending Sunday unfortunately.

        Let us know if you are going to do another one as I was hoping to go drag racing!

        Cheers and hope all is well! Thanks for all you do!
        It was stupid to schedule right after Shift Sector. Lesson learned.
