    read the sticky at the top of the racing forum. Tons of good advice there...

    Good luck! and don't forget to have fun!

    Grim determination and the realization that you may get your doors blown off!

    But don't let that deter you. Get a number, toe the line, and giver' hell. You'll do just fine and have a BLAST.

    Get to the race extremely early and warm up for a good long while.......Nothing is more debilitating (physically and mentally) than feeling like your heart is going to jump out of your chest when you are only on lap 4.
