I finally made it to the track,, Can't wait for my car to get out of the shop and get it on the track..
Randy and Lance both are very great people to be around and talk shop.
Fairly well stocked parts, and some nice custom built ready to run cars on the shelf..
Hoping this grows and more people get involved!.

AL!.. DIA is 20 minutes from me.. load up fly out , I'll pick ya up!!
