Default Any Illinois Boys heading up to Joliet for the NHRA races?

I will be up there tomorrow afternoon through Sunday. Have not had a nitro fix since the Gatornationals in March. Hopefully the weather is better than last year, stormed like hell Friday and ripped the awning off my RV!

Saturday night was even better with a bunch of Funny Cars in the 3.90's!

Well after almost 6 years and 3000+ post on this forum I finally had the chance to meet a forum brother in person! I have texted, talked on the phone and exchanged gifts with a few on here but never have met anyone in person.

Jeff (bixblk) had tried looking me up a few years back at the Joliet race but I was away from the DRAW booth when he was there. Well I got to meet Jeff in person on Saturday, I gave him a pass to park at my campsite and he gave me some t-shirts. We sat around in tha afternoon, drank a few, talked about cars and just life in general. It was great to meet you Jeff and I hope we can get together again next year!

Jeff is on the left, I am on the right and yes, I could use a little sun on my legs :!: :lol:

Funny you mention the hoveround, we saw one go by the campsite sitting on a 20 foot car trailer all by itself being pulled by a truck!. We were laughing pretty hard! :lol:

Default Joliet 66 and the Bone

Hey Careful ;)
We are both young and young at heart. Sure we could use some sun on the legs !
Also the first time I have met some one from the RJ forum that I have been bench racing with all these years.

We had a great time chatting and thanks for the hospitality.

For all you folks that have not been out to Route 66, its a fast track and usually puts down great numbers avery good place to watch the Nationals. Try it sometime.
