The transportation I had planned on using is not available Friday night. He is open for Saturday night. I realize that is prom night, but that might make for smaller crowds at the track, and on the roads. We may even postpone the testing for a bit, depending on weather.

Jeff, Our 2001 Honda civic has been restored to operating condition and is ready for a road test. Since the car is unlicensed, it cannot be road tested in the conventional manner. It will have to be trailered out to Portland International Raceway (PIR) and driven down the drag strip several times to evaluate the effectiveness of the repairs, and to establish a baseline for the modifications that will be made for drag racing. I will be the only driver of the car, so my personal auto insurance will cover the car, if anything should happen. I will be under the supervision of several Pistons Wild, and Oregon Beat The Heat racing team members to advise me in starting line techniques and protocol.
The auto students have been putting a lot of effort into getting the car to this point and deserve to see the fruits of their labors realized. It will help them understand the lessons they have learned in the classroom and in the shop.
Costs will involve the $20 entry fee, fuel for the Honda, and the cost of towing. The towing will be covered by Pistons Wild as a donation to our program. I will cover the Honda fuel and entry fees out of my pocket for this trip. May we have your permission?

Thats Great News! My guess is after this successful test is performed he will let you and the kids do some track testing in the future. Kudos to Jeff for understanding the hard work involved and letting the kids enjoy there efforts in building the Honda!

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
