I think that Great American Days did a great job. The people were all friendly and knowledgable - everything was organized well. My 10 lap drive was alot of fun. The car ran well, the track was in good shape and the person who helped me ( Darryl) getting set up in the car did a great job explaining things with a very positive, helpful, attitude.

One of the most AWESOME days ever!! Very cool to drive a race car, would recommend this experience to everybody. There were delays at the track due to the number of people there, but it was a nice sunny day, so who's complaining?
