    Bummer Will. Hopefully, nobody will need to take you up on your garage offer.

    Yeah, this is disappointing. My SC is really set up more for this kind of driving than the drag strip. Hopefully I can bring it next year.

    David,

    Can you bring my packet back with you when you return to STL. I'll pick it up whenever I see you again.
    You have 20 other cars to drive.... Just saying....

    If it’s just a starter - easy fix. Get to wrenching. Or even bring another car.

    That is true but we are also trying to be responsible with our finances. They have the car today to see what the damages might be. If the bill is cheap then I'll go. I suspect it won't be cheap and whatever I would pay in hotel costs will cover the bill needed to fix the car. The white Aurora needs the A/C recharged so that will also need to be done.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't much matter what I take. I don't think I'm going to be able to take Friday off work.

    Um...ok. It was a wheel bearing as I thought. Now to get the A/C fixed in the white car.

    Don't forget my packet and other goodies. I'll be canceling my reservations here in a minute. That money will pay for all the repairs on both cars.

    Not bad for a first year event.

    I didn't even make it but I want to thank the organizers for putting the effort into pulling this event off!

    Hopefully this will become an annual event. I'll certainly would make every effort to make it next year. It was a scheduling fluke that I wound up missing it this year. I've requested time off for the Shootout so, I hope to make it this year. (Fingers crossed)

    Cheers to the winners!

    Definitely an awesome event. Thanks for organizing and promoting it. I haven't been active with the club in a few years and this has certainly increased my interest again. I had a few repairs that were needed before, and it was well worth the push to finish.

    Cool Stentson's Off to Organizers and Sponsors

    Hats Off!!

    Cris, A big "Bravo Zulu" for you the organizers and sponsors of the First Epic Drive. It was a true blast to drive the cars over the long weekend. Colonel Don and I where thrilled to be on this "first ever" and it was pulled off with flying colors. Though Don came in his Pontiac Solstice, at least he had a 5 Speed to row through the curvy roads and long back road . Thanks to us missing movement on Friday morning, we got to do the Tail of the Dragon in both directions. 636 curves over 22 miles. Bet the PS fluid was hot but the XB-70 did not miss a beat while on the hunt for the slippery Solstice. Got back to Nashville at a constant 80-90 mph on I-40 W. Car earned an early oil change today for it's flawless performance. Pictures available to download are a great plus to memorialize!!!! Kudos.

    Can't wait for the next Epic!
