When the dust settles on the weekend, I'd be great to capture some of these comments/discussions in the GT500 thread...for those that want to know and couldn't make it!
wish i was there! so jealous...
I will tomorrow and I have more photos. I’m going to start a thread on a potential upgrade for the GT350’s using a part from the GT500.
....and Rob ( GB899 ) won " Best of Show " in the Mustang Car Show!!!
During the 2018 Event we counted the folks who were members of TMO and we found out to our surprise that 11 of the drivers or show car participants were. Fast forward to 2019 and over half to the driver/show car participants were TMO Forum folks! The initial count was at 22, but by the end of Saturday we already had one additional new member and therefore stood at 23! Can you say, " TMO Rules?!"
@GB899 the grabber blue Bosses look terrific and his is pristine looking.
Another great event and glad to meet you Rick @VoodooBoss
Let me know who you are if it’s not clear. I met a lot of new people the past few days and it’s hard to keep track of everyone.
Glad you made the trip Rick and to meet you. In case you don't know who I am I could be called the McLeodkiller. Missed the pic above, we were pushing my heap on the trailer when this was going on.
Group photo? 10% never get the word. . . I'm pretty sure my Boss is behind this fine group of fellow TMO members.
Another great weekend. Meeting old friends, making new ones, meeting Rick, awesome track time. George's MPH crew did a great job. Also, thanks to the sponsors, and people who make this event happen--registration, tech inspection, the awesome meals.
Sunday I even got a point-by from Bill (while eastbound on I-80!)
Just made it into Laurel MS.
Looks like I get the "Long Haul" award this year. What does this pay??? LOL
Since 4 Sept I put 2500 miles on my tow rig.trailer, 4 track days (UTC/Miller and the Roundup) plus a day drag racing with my brothers.
I think I'll walk to work tomorrow. LOL.
It was great to finally meet Rick and to get together with the midwest "Crew". Seeing the GT-500 and the GT at Todd's condo was awesome.
Thanks top George for putting together another awesome event. I wish I could have stuck around for the banquet. Did I mention I had a bunch of driving to do??
Yes I remember. Good luck with the clutch repair and it was nice to finally meet you.
Also nice to meet long tyme BMO/TMO members @drano38 @TMSBOSS and @TymeSlayer , seems like we’ve been friends for years!
Also great to meet many of the others , some long time members and some that joined this weekend.
And a big shout out to @Bill Pemberton. Not only is he really fast he was an integral part of the whole event and did a super job raising money for the local food bank. I’ll start a separate thread with photos tomorrow. I’m tired and out for the night.
The best for last though. George is going through some rough times yet he was a funny and gracious host making sure everyone was having a good time.
Sorry Drano, apparently I can't yell as loud as I used too, because I tried to tell everyone after the entire group picture to come up front for one of all the TMO members. I didn't do a good job, because with 23 members we missed a lot more than 10% of the folks there. I will make sure we get a set time for us all to gather since I figure we may hit 3/4ths of all the drivers being members by 2020!!
Photos from the event are posted here:
I stopped these two in the paddock for a quick pic right after the driver's meeting - it was a GOOD day at the track.
Great pic. I think the GT500 would look even better in Race Red
