Well, I forgot about eats already. I do LOVE racetrack food!! funny how hot dogs, off my own grill, taste better at the racetrack. Nachos are better there too!!!

I know the feelings for sure guys, my work is Jap owned they are great people to work for. First time they've had to cut people is coming. 34 Job on my plant (200 people) I should be safe this go around but never know if there is another go around.

My racing is pricey, I cant go anywhere without spending $70.00 just in fuel to get there and back, then $60.00 to race, $12.00 for each crew, race car alky and I buyback if needed. Thats a normal weekend, not counting these races that cost $135.00 each $40.00 for crew, my racing will go downhill this year because of work but I will keep at it. The economy rolls downhill, if the big 3 dont get bailed out my work will be out of a lot of money. Something needs to happen soon :shock:

Not much high dollar stuff right now, people are hanging on to their money. I just sold a pair of rims cheap to buy a waterpump. Kind of a trade. Now i'm hangin' on hoping to find a converter. Like hammer said people getting laidoff and worrying they could be next.

Hey fellahs, feel your pain as well-lucky me I am in a union-but we are looking at pay cuts as well. I have been trying to sell a used go kart at a deeeeep discount and no takers-I have made a deal with a local who is willing to take payments-thanks to him my son will have the champ kart for next year-but man things aren't hust tight it pucker tight if ya know what I mean-good luck to all and may the new year bring us all better news/luck.....
