Off to Kershaw!
Well, the car is ready...ish, the gear is packed, and The race starts Saturday morning. The excitement is _palpable_. Of course, so are the sleep deprivation, anxiety, and poverty.
A few last minute items...the new carb and intake were a bit too tall for the stock hood. So McCall and Rob created a solution, drawing inspiration from those wooden cutout things you see at parks and Old Tyme Western Saloons and the like where you put your head through and it magically appears on some other body. Except, no one was brave enough to stick their head through the jagged metal cutout in the Landau hood.
Perfect! Didn't even have to repaint the number!
We loaded the 400M and spare C^ and engine hoise into Rob's comically tiny pickup truck.
Now it's just a simple matter of winding away the next 6 hours at work until I can head off to the track. There's another LeMons team at my place of employment; we rolled into the parking lot at nearly the same time this morning. Real Estate agents across the Upstate were reportedly cringing and contemplating suicide as property values plummeted as our tow rigs drove past.
Circling for the kill...
GOOD LUCK IN KERSHAW!!!
Don't blow up any engines... Remember to keep it rubber side down and between the lines! Oh, and it's not bumper cars either!
Hope you win some stupid trophy that is accompanied by ridiculous amounts of nickels in a nondescript bag stolen from a shipment hijacked on its way to the local bank... Or something like that...

I think the Lemons car has a better chance of finishing the race than Rob's truck has of making the round trip to Camden for the race. That little truck is low to the ground :).
