2011 Gator-O-Rama Thank Yous

The pits were fun and friendly, the racing was clean, the fixes heroic, and the judging was excellent. Thank you to everyone involved. I love LeMons racing, especially in Texas.

I do need to highlight some specific individuals for awesomeness:

Rich for the tools. Having the right tool at the right time made a potentially terrible, painful job quick and blood-free.

Zach, Kent, Bill and the entire Mostly Harmless racing crew for general awesomeness.

Troy for possibly loaning us a trailer. Just the thought is making us drool.

Matt and the Luchadores team for the catfish. That sh!t was good!

komododave for brisket, encouragement and sympathy. You rock, my man.

Marty showed up instantly in our paddock when we broke. Mark was only slightly slower to show up. I think he had longer to walk. How cool is that? Thanks, guys.

Brian for blowing up. I know it sucks for you, but it definitely amuses the rest of us.

Arcangel needs recognition as the most awesome woman in Lemons. (Sorry Anna!) She's actually remembered my name since the first race, and her stories are fantastic. Thanks for hanging out, and the cookie.

John (the Hoonatic) admitted his car was a risk factor for herpes... while is girlfriend was sitting on his lap. Thank you John for one of the funniest moments of the weekend.

Sajeev and Scott need recognition for general after-hours awesomeness.

The Blue Goose guys were wonderful neighbors. We eventually had a multi-canopy compound that could have housed a small third world country. Very cool. They also loaned us their rolling cart, which saved my aching back. Not only are they good racers, they're friendly. Fantastic!

I know more people need recognition, but my tired brain can't produce any more names. Fantastic weekend. I'll see all y'all at ECR for the North Dallas Hoopie!

Hey ... do you guys have the Jetta or know who does? Orlando at MSR just found the starter if you want it back. It looks pretty roughed up. I'm on the Fluffy Bunny team and he thought it was ours as our VW Fastback is older than most people participating in LeMons. I have no idea how to find the REAL owner and figured I'd start here.

We sure do know them, they're the ones who we originally built the Neon with! I'll let them know that Orlando found it in case they opt to go pick it up.
