Greetings Chumps!

The gates opened at 9:00am and... by 10:15am, all teams were set-up in their pre-assigned pit spaces. Parking was managed; traffic flow controlled and life is good.

Pit lane has been set-up for two lanes of tech, with four stations for safety and technical inspection.

We're good to go!

The track is hosting a test day and they just completed their driver's meeting. Looks like about 45 cars are going to do some driving today on the South Course.

Here's the link for ChumpCar Live Timing: ChumpCar Live Timing

More to come...

gawd I hate that we're not there. I had a death in the family :( and my team decided not to go as a result. We'll be up and running for the Chumpionship, though, so see many of you there. Have a blast!

As long as Alexander Graham Cracker's theory of relative osmosis holds true. We're planning on it!

Word to that. All things look in order. Best of luck!

App isnt working right now :(

You dont need ip and channel, On the app there should be a "race directory" button. this brings up a menu of current races

if you dont have this button, uninstall and reinstall to get the latest version.

well darn, it looks like the race monitor is having issues still.... the clock on the right hand side is ticking away but the race timer on the left is not and no one's time/laps are changing right at this moment... :(

As of an indicated 18:07 (6:07 EDT), it says "RED" on the monitor, which I'm hoping isn't a red flag.

PS: Go mealtime. And any other Canuck teams.

Edit: 5:30-6:30pm EDT according to the supplementals is the changeover time from south to full-course. So presumably nothing to worry about.

If the app isn't working for anyone...

Well it was an absolute blast but thunder chicken racing ended our day early with a rod bearing knock. Of Course the racing gods decided one last kick in the plums was in order and summoned up a massive rain storm as we were trying to pack up...

Thanks John, Mike and the rest of the CCWS staff for doing such an amazing amazing job and overcoming immense obstacles and avoiding mass confusion. Yall are the best and look forward to seeing you at Sebring.

P.S.: Mike, please tell your brother thanks for keeping such a cool head yesterday during our little parking snafu...
