    Pretty much all my pics were posted to my desktop and then directly to BS thru the process in the sticky ((click on the icon that looks like a suitcase with a fish hook in it) and follow usual procedures). Works well for me.

    I just store them in my computer in appropriate file folders.

    it happens. People are real.
    well we always notice fast cars that don't have squat an get away with it. Natural for us to "look". Lots of illegal cars out there. Excuses like mine is a street car and we only race twice a year is BS..

It's difficult to get insurance to run any sort of racing facility and one of the stipulations from the insurance company is that certain safety regulations are in place and enforced. So running outside of those regulations puts not only the track operator in jeopardy but you might also cost all the competitors a place to race because no insurance = no track. We came close to that at ECTA last year.

    I realize you can run too quick for your safety gear by accident (it was faster/quicker than you thought) but PLEASE don't do it on purpose.

    Sorry to be the safety Grandma.....

    Dan my daughter worked @ NED for years. We know the rules believe me. My car has everything but the engine diaper. I also need shoes, pants and a different helmet. My daughter is harder on me than the track Rules ??? Go to Beach Bend BG Kentucky. t shits. shorts and flip flops in 9 sec cars. Club week. Guys don't want to even put in a roll bar . Oh my daughters biggest boss was her mother. She had everything for a 10.0. We went to CC in MD. She ran in the 9s an she got booted. Came back home an were planninng our next race in Ga. Mom stept up NO more racing till the front halo is done. Got it done i a week.All of our cars are street cars drivin daily.

    So ya I know where you are coming from !!
    Dan

    Oh we really didnt think it would go 9s. Her car would kill it so I thought I was safe.

    I'm guessing the sorta good =

    sorta = getting tossed
    good= NINE's.

    I think Good won on that exchange. Excellent!
