    What an awesome day! I had so much fun. The weather could not have been nicer and I doubt you would find a nicer bunch of people. This was my second time I attended this event and I will always remeber the fun I had and the "friends" I have made. I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks to all the nice people I have met there. I would like to say thanks to Mike Charness for hosting such a wonderful event. Also I would like to thank all the people who were so generous as to give me a ride in all their awesome cars. Thanks goes out to:

    Jeff Davison
    Lee Pierce
    Tommy Cosgrove

    THANKS ALL!

    And an extra thanks to Lee Pierce who was generous enough to let me take his 78 308 GTS for a spin around the track for several laps. THANKS MAN! This was my first time to drive a Ferrari and hopefully not the last but I am sure this drive will be one I will never forget.

    Also I would like to thank the nice lady who got her husband to give me a ride in the black Lamborghini. I am sorry but with all the excitment I dont remember your names but both of you seem really nice and I do appreciate you giving me the opportunity to ride in such a fine car.

    Branko, I enjoyed talking to you and I hope to see you again and you too Mike. Both of you guys have the cars that I aspire to own and yet between taking pictures, filming all the cars, catching rides and running my mouth I somehow let a ride in your cars elude me. I will be looking for you next time.

    To TOP it all off, all this fun and still this event was able to do some good for the Make a Wish foundation. How awesome is that?

    Sorry for the belated thanks but once again Thanks to all!


    Oh yeah, I have a bunch of pictures I will post when I upload them to my computer.

    I'm glad you had a good time! If you're up in Huntsville in the future, give me a shout and we'll take the Ferrari out on some back country roads.

    Yeah, I have to replace my rear tires before I do much more driving... I knew they were near their wear limits before Talladega (and my mechanic pointed that out on my Tech Insp sheet). They're not quite slicks yet, but they're getting close! :)

    David, You got some great shots! In fact, the one shot of my Euro 308 looked so good, I had to take a second look to make sure it was my car.
