THE LAP WAS TOO FAST!! Screeching around at 30 mph started to blow the sign off my hood. I thought I had taped my "THREE DECADES" sign securely, but the parking lot heat must have loosened the double-sided tape and I almost lost it on the track. ON THE PLUS SIDE.... I can say I not only RODE on the track but when the "traffic" stopped, I jumped out to retrieve the blowing sign and became the only Fiero driver to have WALKED on the track. A great day and experiences to remember!

Thanks to everyone for making this an awesome event!



The official number from the 25th was 262 cars so it tops the 25th but not by much. Throw in the prototypes and there were 285 at the 25th.

I'm impressed that the 30th turned out that well. It bodes well for a 35th. Maybe I can make one every decade. At least for as many decades as I have left.

That's why I said *just tops* the 25th and *officially registered and on the show field*, we didn't count the cars not entered in the show... Why are you arguing this? Turnout was higher than we expected, that was the point of mentioning the 25th...

One more picture -- the most hallowed finish line in racing.

The only bricks left on the "Brickyard".

Here's a video I made of track day. This is edited pieces, and there's no audio. I thought about adding "Born to be Wild", or "Magic Carpet Ride", but at this pace, maybe some "elevator music" would be better.

So that's what you were doing.

When I saw you get out, I thought you just wanted to touch the bricks.
