          Pretty sure it hasn't happened yet..

          I'll see if I can't track down more info and make this into the "official" SSHS thread.

          I'll have to check my schedule, and see if I can get down there for it too.

                  You would be referring to the SuperCoupe Shootout.

                    JP, I see that the car show judging is at noon. What time does it start? If I were to enter anything, it would likely just be the car show (the G8), and I'm not sure I would be able to get there at 8am. lol.

                    I just checked for you. You're good to go.

                      Yeah, like JP said, that was the SC Shootout. SSHS is less restrictive. lol. I have a double interest in this, in that Mark VIII's AND G8's are well-represented. I think I counted 14 or 15 G8's and Chevy SS's last year.

                      As much as I enjoyed meeting JP and Mike Schultz last year (and hope to see them again), I really hope some more Mark VIII guys are able to attend this year!

                        I hope to be there and support the club. Not going to race though. All my safety gear has expired and I don’t race The Mark like in years past. Besides, there is nothing else goal wise that I feel the need to chase. The Mark has nothing more to prove to me.

                          I think most show cars start arriving around 10 to 11 AM? The show portion is officially during the 'lunch' break from 12 noon to 1PM so not to take away any race participants.

                          I hope you're joking Mike.

                          I always look forward to seeing you there and watching you run.

                            Likewise, JP. Watching you and the Blue Flame evolve all these years is inspiring!

                            I have a lot of great memories, but I'm pretty sure it is time to retire from the track and get The Mark back to a car that has some tread on the back tires to drive in the rain. It sits covered up way too much anymore.

                              I've submitted my time-off request for this, so it's pretty much 100% likely that I'm going. After my trip to the Tail of the Dragon this weekend, this will be my next big event to look forward to. Can't wait!
