KC, I almost splooged my pants when that car came rolling up. I usually don't like the S14.5, but that car is dead sexy. Let me know if he ever sells those Advans.

Had a blast this weekend...Just wanted to say thanks for welcoming me in. Special thanks to Torry, Joe, Justin, and Abby for making feel at home.

I'm glad I could get 2 cars registered for NICO to help bring home the club trophy.

Just barely! We had a blow out on the trailer at about 10 at night in the middle of nowhere (I-24 in Western TN). It took out the trailer fender, but it was a tandem axle and there were two tires so we made it to the shoulder with no problems. Luckily I had my LED safety glasses so I could see what I was doing (forgot a flashlight). Pretty interesting changing a tire w/ semis rolling past just a couple feet behind you! We finally pulled in at 2 in the morning.

Had a blast and so did my buddy RJ. Just goes to show what kind of people we have when a guy who's never been on the site can show up and be welcomed and have a great time. Big thanks to everyone for all the hard work that went into this event. I apologize for leaving early yesterday, but RJ's wife still hasn't gotten over the fact that he went on this trip.

Yea ya bastard. We smoked part of your trailer at about 70 mph right after your blow out.

Good time though overall!

BTW, for everyone reading, i was the guy from STL in the DRIFT shirt all weekend.

Haha, what's up Kyle, was good to meet you and put a face with the name. I have to apologize about Sunday when you came up to me in the BP area when we were walking the banana around. I know I turned away while you were talking and I turned back and you all had walked away. Didn't want you guys to think I was blowing you off, haha. Glad you came out, hung out at the NICO booth, and sat and talked, was definately a good time. I'll have to make it out to STL to watch a midnight madness event one of these days and harass Nichols.

Also, RJ, was great to meet you, and tell your wife that you coming out is all my fault. As long as she doesn't call me i'm ok with her yelling at me

It was great to see all the faces I haven't seen in so long; as well as meet a whole other bunch of great people this year.

Thanks to every one who came out and repped for NICO!

Special thanks to the lovely ladies who modeled for us, and the folks who helped slinging t-shirts and calenders. You all did an awesome job!

I don't know who it was that won either which is weird considering there was only 20-30 cars registered.
