Tony, I saw your guy's cars at the Nitto stand and they looked great! Didn't see any of you guys standing around. Seemed to be a pretty good turn out today. Are you guys leaving from anywhere in particular tomorrow? I would really like to tag along in the morning if you guys are going as a group.

We're at the holiday inn express. Not sure where it's at exactly. We're rolling out around 8am. Be probably 5-6 cars I believe, couple first gens, Z06 and the 5th gen atleast.

Saw the cars today at the booth but hadn't read this thread yet. Looked damn good.

I got 22 mpg on the drive up from Texas with T56 and 4.33s. I'm sure it's going to be much worse for the rest of this trip though.

There's a driver's meeting?

I don't think we'll be attending. Probably just going to high tail it out of town.

1st road day was a blast! Folks in Iowa and Illinois are great,
felt like being in a huge parade. Gotta love laying black marks in two different states in the same day.
