I dunno if I can make it, but to answer Andy's question yes On-Track is in the back of a parking lot off Rt. 5. It would probably be a lot easier for non-Wlfd residents to find On-Track than ***** D's.

You guys are gonna be in my neck of the woods.

I'll see if I can make it, but the answer is likely no.

I say lets do On Track Carting Sat. Feb 21. In the morning I think there would be less people and then maybe we could do breakfast as well?

i should be able to go. gotta ask my parental units though. should be ok. ill see if i can bring my buddy. ive been tryin to get him to join, so, maybe thisll persuade him more. I just gotta know which track were going to, and the directions from 91N. i imagine its exit 10 area. thats the exit I take to go to my uncle's house in Cheshire, and Wallingford's next door, so...hey, maybe we should have nametags with our screennames so we know who we are. lol

Methinks you'll be spending a lot of time facing the wrong way until you get the hang of it.

If you just tap the brakes while you're turning you spin in those things.

If you want to lay down a fast time you keep it floored the entire time except for the hairpin turn.

BAHAHAHA!

I was just cruising around the Honda Ridgeline forums because those morons are always good for a laugh. I went to their northeastern section and looked to see where I'd have to go to crash a meet.

They're planning a meet at On-Track Carting on the 21st of February!

2/21/09 - Meriden, CT Meet - Honda Ridgeline Owners Club Forums

Let's make sure everyone's rigs are at their shiniest. Possibly bring a chain or two. Might need to drag a couple Ridgelines around the lot.

Im confused, (what else is new). Is the GTG at ***** ds? or at on-track? Does anyone want to go early, and get breakfast somewhere close by?

I have been to On Track and liked it. They have a nice viewing area where we could sit and chat as well as a place to get some food.
Ray I think breakfast first is a great idea. On Track opens at 11 AM. I have a friend that lives in that area and I will ask him for a good breakfast joint.

Andy, thanks for checking up on breakfast places

I propose breakfast at Wallingford's IHOP.

Pete since you live in Wallingford, please recommend some other breakfast places in Wallingford so we can have some options, like Diners.

I'd rather not go for a breakfast at a fast food place like McD's and the likes.

As for washing my van to impress those imports.
I think the more mud I have on the van then the more they'll be about squeezing between my fat van and their tiny car.
