Are you bringing it up to the Shootout this year? We went to the Bristol night race last year, so we missed seeing your boat. I know that circumstances did not allow you to come up, but maybe this year!
It's no biggie.
I was simply making the point that race fuel price does not fluctuate with gas prices which surprised me. A $4.00 per gallon jump is ridiculous.
I thought the shootout was cancelled, I just read yesterday that it is in. I will check into it tomorrow but I'm 99% sure i will be there. (regardless of gas prices!)

At cruise speed with the ECU set at 1550 it burns 2 1/2 Gallons per mile. That is not 2 1/2 miles per gallon either!!!!
So if you're cruising at 125mph, it only costs you $4593.75 at the new price to go that 125 miles. Hope the Casino is doing well. What is it at WOT? (Probably don't want to know).

I took a group of friends out on my boat Yesterday. They showed up with beer, ice, food, etc..... Then at the end of the day 1 of them tried to give me a $100 bill.... I told him thanks for the offer, but keep it. He then REFUSED twice to take it back, said I could give it to Charity, throw it away or whatever, but he was NOT taking it back! So I thought why not, and put it in my pocket. The day cost me about $400 for fuel, but the $100 was really a nice gesture...HE WILL BE INVITED BACK!.......
