Is there going to be parking by the pit this year, like in the past?

I still have that bum ankle and the closer the better for me with parking.

Was out there today, the water is very minimal but the mud is going to get nasty. Snorkel if you want but I don't think it is needed. See ya tomorrow. Where the water is' is only 2-3 inches deep

Thanks to Dad and his crew for a great run. It is one of the best mud runs on this side of the state.

smart ass. It was a good run by you though and I will be the first to say you did an excellent job. I knew I should have pulled 2 plug wires or just put in a 4 cylinder to begin with.

Why can't you just run 1/4 throttle

I know shoulda..coulda... woulda....

Good try by everyone! I do have to say at least there was no damn water!!
