Blake Anderson -
Glad to see that I was wrong and there are at least 5 teams in the Bham area. I've been emailing/texting Ryan since yesterday. We'll have to get together to start forming our "Birmingham Alliance". I know of another team that is early in the building stage, too. They hope to get their hooptie together by the Barber race. I think it is a Nissan 240sx, if I remember correctly.
I guess the "Alabama Gang" moniker is already taken, so we'll have to think up a new name for our group. "Birmingham Money Pits", "Alabama Oil Leakers", "Shelby County Oil Slingers", "Iron Town Idiots" - feel free to improve on these suggestions. On the other hand, "The Alabama Gang" has been out of use for about 40 years, so we might be able to appropriate it.
If you need a driver for Atlanta, I know a guy looking for a seat. He's the owner/captain of the Orca Team (Cadillac CTS) and he gave me my first two drives with them while I got a car and started prepping it. He doesn't want to haul his car from Houston - 15 hours each way. I'd offer him a seat with us if we weren't full already. Send me a pm if you want contact info.
egoldthorpe - did you ever get your team underway? Or did you decide to invest your money wisely and just buy tickets to watch the rest of us throw our money away?
