Good luck.
Vince I learned that years ago! Of course living 62 miles from work helps, I have a hour to decompress on the way home every night!

My one BIG decompression will be in September. I'll be running the Silver State Classic open road race for the first time. Will be required to start in a lower class than the car was built for, as I need experience in driving at 140+ for extended periods of time. We go down for rookie qualifying in Vegas at the LV motor Speedway, a 2 mile oval. THAT will be fun ! Then race on Sunday. Next year I'll be allowed to run in Unlimited @ 200+.
I'll also get one pavement hillclimb in, in June.
