    Perhaps if the timing is right. I'd do PF '09 before Indy if I had to choose. We do a mini-fest every couple of months here in Rockford, IL and anyone is welcome. Indy is a hike to IL for just the day, and I swear a couple of us are going to Ohio to visit with Ricardo and his system before summer's end.

    I'm probably not good for next weekend, or the 27th. Picking up a new car next weekend and working out some little bugs with it, and the 27th i'm driving down to louisville to get another car dyno tuned.

    The 20th sounds good to me, though.

    I wasn't aware of that. Let me know when you're doing that again! I'm up near Chicago.
