At least you will have the Casinos. It wouldn't hold my attention for a month, but they would get me through the first weekend.

I am in. Driving from Dallas area if anyone needs a carpool.

And yes Racer Ex, I am skipping the well-meaning but nevertheless lame races that are in the area that weekend. And I know you like that road course out there, but come on you know Andy's going to promote 10 more races there this year.

Actually the road course will be out in Celina. Rollers from heck, and "the other Armstrong" production. Gotta support Kevin's TT, he does a great job and let's me amortize the new TT rig. I think the crit is supposed in downtown Denton, even if it's out at Eagle's the whole weekend is an engraved invitation for old Ex, especially since they will have a geezer race. I'll be on the road enough this year...

Have you guys heard a date or info on Tunis?

Tunis is on the calendar for that same weekend, Saturday. But no permit yet.

Why was I thinking it was going to be on the AH course in Decatur? Celina... are talking about the county road rectangle from last year?

That's the one. Definitely a war of attrition. I was double checking on the crit location but TXBRA has been down since last night.
