Friday, 6:46 AM - Still in Gurnee, Illinois


We worked on the car until very late to get it ready to go, plus put on the DC decals. This morning RAIDMAGIC (Steve Hardy) is arriving at Ohare and will take a cab to the shop and meet us there.

We hit the shop super quick to get a stock Z06 seat back in the car, because after installing the Sparco Pro 2000 seats sat too high, couldn't get a helmet on.

Today we have to be in South Bend Indiana by 3pm for "sticker day" ... when we put all the sponsor decals on, all the entries do. Then there is the inspection.

Our tires are brand new Michelin PS2's... they are "certified rubber" and "2007 OLOA" is cow branded into the side of each tire.

Time to pack, already an hour behind! Tomorrow the fun begins!! :thumbsup:

Started the first day at Tire Rack. The guys had a blast doing the wet skid pad challenge. Not sure how they would have finished, because Pat (Mark Martin)Gramm, pulled off the track after finishing one lap instead of two.:laughing: :laughing: Sorry Pat had to throw that in there.:rolling:

After leaving there they headed to Plymouth Speedway, but found out the track wasn't ready. They moved instead to South Bend Speedway, a quarter mile oval event. We haven't got any results on that as they had to leave to get to the next event. They should get the results at that time.

Sounds like they are having a great time. More updates to follow, stay tuned.:thumbsup:

Had a great time in Joliet with Patrick, Raidmagic, Dan85vette, Willard, and Roy Davenpor yesterday! Patrick looked to be one of the fastest on the track until his final lap when a car running it's cool down lap took his line going into turn 1. It totally killed his momentum and and his lap time. :down:

The team isn't discouraged though! They're just saving their equipment for the final stretch! :devil:

Here's a pic of the DC Z on the track (courtesy of Roy Davenpor):thumbsup:




Here's a link to the track they ran.

Didn't have a lot of time to talk to the guys after Patrick finished his run. They had a 400+ mile trip to Iowa ahead of them. Today they are scheduled to race in the morning, then back on the road for a 950+ mile trip to Utah! :surprised

Good luck guys and stay safe! :cheers:

It was very fun meeting up with everyone including Raidmagic too! :thumbsup:

I'd hate to be trapped in a warehouse on fire with Pat.... Guy can't seem to find the exit! :laughing:
