I will be there in the 21 Car. Will be nice to meet some other Tennessee TMO members. Black Boss is attending too.
Awesome. I'll be wearing #73 in HPDE3 (despite the roster reading #19 - I was told that number wasn't available). I'm listed as "Norbert" (my given name) but nobody calls me that except phone solicitors :)
 
I’ve got an RV spot (no RV, but need power for my trailer) by where the Holly Tower used to be.

Im doing HPDE 4 in a white Boss 302S I just purchased. I’ve never had this car on track, so this is a shakedown weekend before moving to ST2 with it.

Come see me!

Will do! I'll be there with a couple of Corvette-driving friends and we'll just have pop up tents since the garages were wiped out by the tornados that went through.

My goal was to have the car ready for this event, but I didn't make it for various reasons. 6 inches of snow last weekend didn't help either. I still need to put the console in, the shifter ball, the drivers seat and bleed the clutch before I can start breaking in the new clutch. I didn't register and cancelled my hotel room. I will make the fall NASA NCM event if the car is still in one piece.

Great meeting Chip at the event this weekend. Had a great time learning the track on my first time there. Not so much fun making the 105dB sound check with full cloud cover on Friday, but Saturday and Sunday no issues. Will be going back to NCM as it is a challenge and is only 1 hour 50 minutes from home.

Great meeting you as well! Spencer, sorry I didn't catch you before you left Sunday afternoon. The event was good - very blustery/cold Saturday, but sunny and not so windy Sunday and the end of day sessions were the best of the weekend.
 
Friday was very fun. It was my first outing in the 302S, and it’s a much different car than the 350R.... very raw.

The car developed an engine stumble off idle that I couldn’t sort out at the track, so I packed it up early. It felt like the engine was in limp mode, but there were no codes. Naturally, it started running perfectly when I got back home!

It‘s probably time to get some spare sensors, coil packs etc. to have on hand just in case.

Glad everyone had fun!
