    Congrats young man. You are a natural for that position.

    I'll hoist couple in your honor here real soon.

    Valley of Speed is making Eric Miss Merced shirts and Miss TNT shirts for this year, he liked the Furias ones (that I happen to love, and own ) that he wanted some more! Would love to see a Miss Merced/ Furias shirt one day...

    Count me in that group. My first Reno was '97, and when Strega and the Bear came around 8 and past the home pylon on that first lap....man, that sound!! I knew right then I was a fan for life.
