Default USTCC Round 4 at Buttonwillow, CA on July 13 & 14

Hey everyone,

We are going into the 4th round of the U.S. Touring Car Championship in the championship points lead! This should be an exciting race weekend as we are getting a lot of track time to get our cars sorted out. This also looks to be the longest race of the year so far - it is a full 50 minute race. It's going to be tough on tires and drivers and we need to be worried about fuel consumption.

If you are in the area, come on out to the track and hang out with us. Kartboy will also be there, and they are having a 20% off, cash only sale on all the products they bring.

This weekend's event is also a NASA HPDE (High Performance Driving Event). So if you've been wanting to get your car out on the track, check out NASA's web page (www.nasaproracing.com) and get yourself registered for this weekend's event.

Here's the USTCC schedule:

Saturday
8:00am-8:20am........Warm-up
9:50am-10:10am......Practice
12:00pm-12:25pm....Qualifying Session 1

Sunday
8:00am-8:20am.......Warm-up
9:45am-10:05am.....Qualifying Session 2
11:50am-12:40pm...Feature Race (50 min)

Hope to see you there!

There are 4 races left, including this one.

Oh, man, this is going to be tough. A 50 minute race in 107F degree heat. Hopefully we'll get that thunderstorm the weathermen are predicting...

Still leading in points. If we get some more support on Sunday, we'll keep that lead. Don't let the BMW pull ahead! Support one of the few Subaru Road Racers in the country, maybe even the world! See you there.

If you need directions, it's the Lerdo Highway exit North of the town of Buttonwillow. The track is just West of I-5.

What Happened ??
It must not have been a good weekend. I cant find anything on how Gary and the crew did. We can handle the Bad with the Good.
Please, give us some details.
Thanks, Jerry C
