    From Roger Krause? Probably me - I had a fresh set for July at VIR!

    Mix and match should be ok at your speeds. At the limit she will lose the rear first but should be progressive enough to catch. Hopefully it does not rain....if so then you drive like sooooo gently.

    Kill the Toyos on track. You then have spares options if you have a puncture.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll proceed that way.

    Puncture insurance is secured either way with a backup set of OEM 10 spoke 15s

    I read the post on a earlier page that the only tech requirement was the one on the registration page. I was under the impression that the state of New Jersey required a inspection. I read the section about inspections in the code and it only referred to sanctioning bodies or tracks. Do I need any other inspection beyond the one done at the track and outlined on the form from registration?

    Hi Carl

    NJMP Drivers Club is the sanctioning body in this instance. They will do an inspection in the pits on the day using the form talked about earlier. No other inspection is required.

    One Week to go Get any last minute fixes done. Check your tire pressures and torque your lug nuts. Long range forecast for what it's worth is for the low 60s during the day and mid to high 40's at night. It will be chilly for the first session so dress appropriately.

    Croc told me no one signed up for Karting this year which is a shame, since a lot of the regular lightweights, can't make it this year and us heavyweights would have had a fighting chance. But it does save me from a lot of bruising since Croc usually broadsides me at least once a session.

    Safe travels everyone. See you next week. Tom

    So...I just realized something. From a Covid perspective we are fine coming into NJ from MA. But coming home from NJ to MA we are supposed to quarantine for 14 days, which isn't practical for us, or get a Covid test within three days prior to returning. Does anyone have any knowledge of how/where we could get tested over the weekend near NJMP? And hopefully get quick results?

    I don't know about NJ specifically, but here in Pa. the local CVS does drive up tests. I don't know how fast of a turnaround they give for results, but you could call and ask.

    15 min response testing at Newark airport, you go past it on I-95/Jersey Turnpike. Google Xprescheck and see what time slots they offer. Terminal B, level 3 before security. THis is the one I use if I need testing.

    CVS only tests local residents - so you would need to wait until you got home which does not work for you.

    RiteAid in Vineland offers covid testing. Appointment required but they test anyone. www.riteaid.com has details

    Other options come up if you google "rapid covid test millville nj"

    Thanks Croc. Do you know yet the schedule for track sessions each day? I'd like to try to schedule RiteAid tests for a time between sessions.

    I do not have the schedule yet but the day before they send it out to you directly via email.

    It may also be on the TrackRabbit site under your registration as an attachment
