Thanks for the vote of confidence but I've raced Munoz heads up, it
wasnt close.  And I ran times that were excellent for me at Mid-Ohio. 
And it's my favorite track of all time (so far).

Glen's Spit is pretty far into flared fenders, lots of fibreglass and
skirting.  SVRA has turned away many that are closer to legal.  Now Kent
Bain....hadn't thought of that! That could work.

A joint gathering with a keg of Old Speckled Hen would be pretty cool. 
We'll have to engage Harkness to sweet talk the local importer into
getting us some.
