    Even if you dont drink or like bars, you will still have a blast. A lot of people didnt drink last year and they still had a lot of fun! This is the second large meet I have planned, you wont be disapointed!

    Thanks,
    Nick

    I got the 26th off of work, so I'm good for the whole weekend. All that's left is to decide where to stay and whom to stay with.

    Definitely gonna be there all day Saturday, except for the drinking part. I think everyone should bring a cigar instead. I will see if I can get a camping spot for Friday night at the Illiniwek Forest Preserve in Hampton, IL. Its only $11 a night for anyone who doesn't have a hotel yet, just bring a tent and a sleeping bag. They have showers and its 13.2 miles (20 minutes, according to Google) from the casino where everyone else is staying and 13.7 miles from the drag strip. The only problem is they might not let anyone in after 10:00, so I may have to leave the drag strip a little early Friday night. I still have to call them and see about open spots. I would have to meet you at the track Friday night since I don't get out of school until 3:30.

    The only thing I smoke is rubber, but with this car, I can't do that, so I need to fill my smoking void.

    Shit, I just remembered. Anyone with a sunroof should probably bring a helmet for racing!!!! If someone has extra helmets laying around I would really appreciate if you could bring them.

    Oh man, Nick, I see we're doing b-fast at Granite City again. Much thanks for making that a part of our routine. Our trip last year turned me on to that restaurant, and I can't resist going (when I've got the money for it haha).

    I might be able to snag a helmet or two from my grandparents on the way out there if anyone needs it.

    Re: Midwest meet FINALIZED! Check in here!

    I have a sunroof n would like to race. So a spare helmet would be greatly appreciated. Why the helmets. Never raced on a track. Is this commonly a rule for all tracks?

    They will probably let you race without a helmet......

    I thought all tracks made you wear a helmet.
