    Money. We can't afford it and you guys can't afford it without more prize money on the line.

    plus there's absolutely no way in hell that kawi 650 would last 24 hours. :Poke:

    Wow, an hour and eight minutes, I would have guessed that would have been up there in five minutes tops. :D

    im in for a 24.......or at least a 12.......(something into the night?)........lets go back to what it use to be, before we become a 2nd class endurance series!!!

    Can't become second class, we've got 1000's :crackup:

    I've got some ideas, just need to figure out the money aspect. I'm thinking we can run at night at Vegas but I want to see what you guys think of the track this year first and then go from there.

    I like the idea of night racing. Wish we could do it closer.
    My butt is bleeding already thinking of the cost to go out West this year,
    let alone next year, when diesel will be over $6 a gallon.:(

    not that i'm going to miller, but i figured even if i did, and i drove my sprinter van which gets 24mpg.....my diesel bill would be a hair over $600 to get there and back from georgia. damn!!!!!!!

    If I could get there and back for 3 times that I would be very happy.

    gotcha......

    i was just thinking about it as far as night racing, it sure would be cool to run an endurance race into the night

    Vegas would be a great place to do it considering that city never sleeps, at least I know i didnt last time i was there :beer:

    dont get bullshitted sean. about half who say they will race a 24 will actually show up and do so leaving you holding a pretty steep bill.

    Oh trust me I know that. The number of people who show is usually less than half of those who will do it "anytime anywhere" :D

    make it pre entry/ non refundable,

    I would but we'd have to have enough entries to justify it 6 months in advance so we could rent the track etc...
