    Made it! Kinda hairy night run coming in on the dragon with a rental car. I couldn't just ease it in! Had to see what it had a little bit.

    @Nix
    In June we explored a new route from the 28 over to the 215: Ellijay/Tilly Creek Road. Which leads to the 281 followed by the 215. Can't wait to hear what you think of it.
    This map should be pretty close: https://goo.gl/maps/zEqZ9orxL492

    As you approach Franklin the key turnoff is Sanderstown Road

    Hey Santi... how'd you like the new wheels today? It's a wild guess on my part but I say you loved it.... provided you had some decent rubber.

    Good lord man,....

    Nomar is a "stock car killer" in anything. I have to say that I am very impressed with the Fiesta ST. Car felt great to ride in and it never seemed to run out of power. Definitely ran down a few Prelude crew members today like it was nothing. They were being followed by an older WRX Sti but this guy, caught them in less than half a mile.

    Fiesta ST - considerable weapon.

    Todays drive was a simple "Dragon run" and "28" from the Gap to Fontana and then Gap to 129/Robbinsville. Loads of hangout time and just plain "car talk" so we don't have to share our passion back home. Hopefully a temporary reprieve for those subjected to our automotive passion.

    Excellent day with good people as usual.

    Big thanks to: @Nomar06 , @SpartanML , @07TLX , @mattsbobo , @Tony An , @sonej4....

    I can only hope we get a larger crowd next year.

    -- As usual the @Nix recap nails it. Thanks man.

    -- With Nomar's new found "stock car killer" abilities probably a good thing I didn't make it out!

    -- So what's another stock car that can go toe to toe with the Fiesta ST?

    -- How about next year we consider Virginia International Raceway?
    Considered one of the Top 6 in the country. http://virnow.com/about/

    The configuration below offers up two killer straights of 3/4 - 1 mile long each. Think about that.
    Takes about 1/4 mile to get my Si through 4th gear and up to 105. Would love to see what it could do with another 1/2 mile plus.
    And i'm not the only one with a need for speed, am I?
