Anyone else want to ride down Fri night?

I'm heading down (in the cage :( ) after I get out of work @ 5pm Friday (10/18) - anyone else interested in riding down?

I'm corner-working at least one day & planning on heading back fairly early Sun. Meeting a couple of friends with an RV who are corner-working Sat/ tracking Sun.
(My tires are smoked, I'm broke, & I decided to skip the track-day - I would have bailed, but I had already committed to c-work).

I know Pegdragger, killboy (Darryl) & some of you other NC/TN guys are going, but I forget who right now. :confused - Looking forward to seeing ya'll there!

PS: We're grilling/drinking/hanging at the track Sat night - the more the merrier!

Yeah - I'd love to ride, but.... my tires are smoked & I've already spent all my toy-money for the next 2 or 3 months, the logistics of getting down there (& back up if I were to ball-up my bike) would be a bitch, and my back is a bit screwed-up right now - so I guess I'll just corner-work & be envious.
At least I won't have to deal with all the :rolleyes for showing up to a track-day on a viffer!

Last time I was at talladega there was a guy on a XR650 super motard that was all most the fastest guy In the Intermediate class. I said all most, he crashed trying to pass me on the big zrx. He was fast as shit In the corner's, pretty cool guy though. He said he gives people fits at the gap.:ar15

I didn't know you was coming down dragonslayer, are you doing the track day or spectating. we'll be getting down there around 7:00 p.m Friday night, staying at the holiday Inn express, don't know exactly where because don booked the rooms for us. Look me up at the track sat. I'll be on my gixxer.:D

I'd love to, but I have some stuff going on at work that I can't bail on - I'll give you a shout though regardless. Pah-tay Saturday night? (Or at least sit around & tell war stories!)

:D Don says it's just about 5 minutes from the track. I've never been there either, but it looks to be right off I-20 exit 188.

Look for us Slayer. You'll see probably 4-5 vehicles all with bikes on trailers from TN :D (I know I'll be in my Maroon Toyota Paseo, Donald will have a black Xterra, Jason has a big Diesel Duelly type truck...dunno exactly what though. Dunno what you other guys are driving :p)

Kerry...COME ON OVER Saturday night, or Friday for that matter :D I'm sure we'll see ya plenty at the track though. Hey, what are the odds that I could give you my camcorder and let you get some good track side footage? hehe

Clay - No problem on the footage - sounds cool to me!
(As long as the SBTT folks allow a corner-worker to shoot video, that is)

One of the instructor types for SBTT will have his wife there shooting pics. She sells them on cd, not too expensive either, and she gets some killer shots. I will have her get lots of shots of all of our group on the track, so everyone should have a killer shot or 3!!:D She took this one at VIR, not bad eh??
