    "Its going to be a LONG day and a chance a pro license. there is no set number of licenses to give out, we might give out 0, 1, or 4,932. things to expect to have to do to get a close to clips -must maintain drift whole course (spin or straighten will not allow you a license) We plan on setting up the course at start of the day and giving you all day to practice it. Aiming for 10 runs a person before you qualify. We want to give everyone as best a shot as possible. Qualifying for a license will be 2 or 3 judged runs (we will know the day of) and the exact requirements or score you must get will be decided before then as well. THE ONLY RUNS THAT REALLY MATTER ARE QUALIFYING. When we enter qualifying portion of the event, it doesn't matter if you d1 style killed the course on every practice run, if you can't do it during qualifying then sorry. same goes for if the person doesn't get the course all day and throws down a good one during qualifying. If they meet requirements and its on the qualifying run, then they get a license." - Judge Jason "Box Mod" Jiovani

              the difference is that 4 of the 7 FD events are within 10 hours of Laughlin.

                Oh i know i spent about 40 hours total in the back of a dodge pickup half cab going across the country. After something like that taking weekend trips to california is nothing. I would probably head down to the nopi qualifiers just to watch atleast but i'm a little busy at the moment.

                and slapshotnerd you live in slc? or just stopping by for business of some sort? if you live here check out we'll be having some consistent local events soon.

                  Well it turns out i might just be going to this. Friend called me tonight and was saying he knows one of the guy's putting this together, decided he'll make the trip and i will help him out if i can. I may even just get my car ready and decide to make it down in the miata. What is the tech requirement for a soft top vehicle? I'm working on getting a rollbar in the next couple weeks but if i need a cage i'll be out of luck to be able to drive.
