I'm not braggin', so don't put me down...

I have a part time gig working on the set-up crew at Philly, Lancaster and Reading PA races. I did get to the late geat SF GP three times, as well as NYC and the first Tour of Georgia. I'd love to get on the crew for this one. One of the guys I work with has been there, but he's got a CDL and I think they liked his truck drivin' abilities. Too bad.
