I was going to fly down to FL next weekend for the V10 Nationals. Went camping with my boys this weekend and broke my ankle.

Anyway, I wish all of you a great time and look forward to hearing about some fast times and some great racing.

John I feel for you a crushed my right ankle a year ago this past Fall. I had a cast on for over 8 weeks but they did not have to do surgery. Still hurts me to this day, hurts worse when it's cold outside. Be sure no matter the Dr. tells you and go see a specialist for your ankle trust me on this one.

Seems like more and more people are dropping from this event every day. Yellow Fever, you going?

Sorry to hear about that, but it is probably best to stay off of it. And you certainly don't want to get to FL and get in an asskicking contest with one leg. :rofl:


Take care.

Mine are screwed together from motorcycle racing , keep it elevated for better blood flow and faster healing , broken feet and ankles hurt like hell.

John,

Why don't you have Nick transfer the throttle and clutch to paddles on the wheel. Come on I have heard stories from Macedo, I know you have raced in much worse shape.

John have Nick drive and use the radios like NASCAR and you can tell him when to shift etc. You should come and party, it is no fun to stay home and knit or basket weave. Plus who will we be able to eat late night breakfest with or who will bring the diesel fuel when we run out.

I would love to come but I got to heal my bum leg up. When I broke my other ankle several years ago, I did some traveling and getting thru airports then just made the ankle recovery slower and more painful. I will see you guys in Bowling Green. Have fun and be safe.
