No, Deer hunting tomorrow in Indiana.

The excavating sub on the new track(Ranger, pictured) is owned by a cool car guy who is also working on our 2 hotel projects there. He races in the Ferrari Challenge series and has an Enzo, F40, etc... Movin dirt is good work.

When I go to Austin I only get to hang out at this race:

Seriously, get some backhoes and a female business partner, register as a WBE then buy a dump truck to start hauling checks to the bank.

We should have scheduled a race watching party. Next year I guess.

Make that female business partner a Minority AND a Veteran. Since you are a start-up, also register as a DBE. You will own the town with that combination.

Only in liberal land.
They think being 49% or whatever of that total population makes u a minority,news flash white are stil by far the largest race in merican. Just cause everybody else added up just barely as a wole is more is not the definition of majority...then again if it gets me free shit and the right to cry like a biatch evertime I don't get my way sign me up!!

Middle aged white males are currently the most discriminated group when you look at labor laws. I think hiring, contracts etc should be based on merit, not some labor law definition that requires x% of this, y% of that.

Anywho...COTA runs its first race today and I'll be watching!

Not sure if I'm a fan of all the blind apexes and elevation change right into turns. Kinda makes everything more a leap of faith and less driving the track and skill. While the flow was good and fast on sweaper, kinda seemed like a roller coaster and no way to pass. Almost like a straight a way with bends.

Idk, obviously you would have to drive it to get a better sence, or some video games
