Great ! Racers are seldom ready this early , we usually end up the last days/minutes rush/chaos ! Good work and hopefully your team can make some new records .

It really pisses the competetion off when the fastest car team in the association always gets to the track early, unload, do absolutely nothing to the race car, walk over to the coffee stand, get a doughnut and coffee and then sit around till the track opens.

Pete, I know what you saying!
Do your work at home garage and not at the pits....
Sometimes it works that way....
