    You are all welcome! I had to fix a few typing errors...lol... I was a bit tired when I started to get these finished. They seem a bit bright to me but that could be the track as well as I've noticed each track has different lighting or it would seem. I may go back and give a few of them the full treatment!

    Great race everyone!

    Great work as always Joe. Fantastic race! :)

    I told Glenn on TS after the race, the only corkscrew I wanna see for a long time is one that is opening up a bottle of wine! LOL
