    Us truckers refer to it as the Watermelon 500. I am SO glad i don't go anywhere close to Atlanta on my current job...not to load or deliver.

    You can put your foot to the floor since they use rev limiters. I drove one here in Texas and couldn't go over 150 because of the chip. You can hear it popping all the way down the front and back stretch. I had to feather the throttle the whole time. But I will tell you, it was a blast. You will enjoy it.

    That is awesome. Did you watch Days of Thunder? That scene where Cole runs for the first time. I'm Droppin the Hammer.... I would love to do that if I had the extra cash.

    It's not really that expensive. She got it on Groupon for $149.00

    Is that a 3 - 6 lap deal?

    I'm planning on doing this at either Charlotte or Atlanta - and doing the package that lets you go for like 18 - 20 laps.
