Heck Joe some of us have a hard time keeping one running for a vintage
weekend. Great job. I know you must spend countless hours preparing that
car. Keep up the excellent work.
I'd love some pictures of your car.

times) and chasing the leaders. With a few laps to go, my son radioed me
the RX7 was slowing and to keep charging. Last lap I passed the RX7 at the
up-hill, taking the EP win. A 54 year old Triumph outlasted a Mazda and a
BMW. A Miata was 3rd in EP, 2 laps down. I also got to my fastest race
