Hey gang. First off I really enjoyed the group photo of some of you fellows enjoying the races this past weekend in Allentown. Also the photo of Kevin trackside speaking with Marco. The question is ,does Kevin ever take time to sleep. He is unreal! Well as Joe posted , we arrived in Tulsa and today was a very active day. We started the day by setting up a trade show booth for the company that Austin works for fulltime. He works for HMS Motorsport (not Hendrick). He is in charge of sales and product development. They specialize in motorsports safety products. (By the way he will be in Philly next week for Lenny's show as well). It is trade show season! Austin's boss is kind enough to let him race this week and when he has his off days he will be working the booth.

I am going to stay with the car the entire time to be sure we ready to go racing when the time comes. Tomorrow (Monday) everyone gets 2 practice sessions. We are in the 4th group so we will be on track early. After everyone runs 1 complete session they switch and go backwards so our second time on the track will be later in the day. This way everyone sees different track conditions. At 3pm we draw for position for our preliminary race night on Tuesday. They group 90 cars in each night to round out the field for all of the races on Saturday. So drawing a good number is key to getting a good starting spot in the heats. Those 90 cars on Tuesday will run heat races and consolation races to determine the starting field for Tuesday nights 25 lap feature event. So the better you run the better chance you have to advance. Plus there are passing points as well. Seems complicated but it isn't. So every car you pass will advance you forward. 

I will check in with everyone each day to let everyone know how and what we are doing. Also on days we are not racing I will try and give you some results on other drivers as well. Again I want to thank everyone for your support. Also there are some sites that will be showing each nights races as the week goes on. Try "Racing Boys .com". I heard that they have the best coverage.

Thanks again everyone and we will be sure to give this effort a 100% and see how things shake out. Good night. Charlie
