Topic: Mothers day? MOTHERS DAY? (NJMP)

Hey anybody else sign up and NOT know Sunday is Mothers day? I'm sure my Mrs. is NOT going to like this... Anyway looking forward to getting up to NJ and testing our fresh 305 and giving the 350 cars the beat down....  Spun a bearing last year.

Re: Mothers day? MOTHERS DAY? (NJMP)

In 2014 and 2015 it was.

If you look back, this race is being scheduled on the second full weekend in May.  The reason it was not on Mother's Day in 2016 was May started on Sunday, which meant the second Sunday (when Mother's Day is observed) was a weekend earlier than most years.

I have a felling that isn't going to fly... It isn't going to help that I'll be away that week for business... I probably won't get to the track until late Friday night or early Sat morning.

Yup, with the exception of last year we've gone racing on mother's day just about every year I've been doing this. My mom is shockingly cool with it considering both myself and my dad go racing.

My wife even braves the traffic to come down to watch me race.  (it was over 2 hours last time because of the airshow)

A race weekend AND an airshow?  Now that was a mother's day.  With 3 new babies on the team this year, this mothers day is going to be hella expensive.

In 2013 Mother's Day was the weekend of the Loudon Annoying race in NH.

Re: Mothers day? MOTHERS DAY? (NJMP)

It started as: "Honey, I know it is Mothers day, but we can bring the kids, and have a great pic-nic, and we'll spend time together, and if you want, even you can drive the car...!"

Thinking: oh, she'll just say "Don't worry, you go, and have a nice time, and we'll celebrate the following weekend"

But no....

Instead, now its: "So did you get the car fixed and ready for the next race, so it is dependable when I race it...?? !!  Come on...what are you waiting for?  The race is coming up soon!  The brakes rattled at the last race, and the exhaust was loose, and it needs to handle better.  Plus it is filthy inside and you need to clean out the mouse poop.... "

Take the woman racing. Way better than flowers that are gonna die, or chocolates you'll regret eating in one sitting.

The combination of lemons and a free 3-day air show rocked, but damn that weekend put a pounding on my already damaged hearing.
