That's a good possibility. I will talk to the guys and see what they think about it. I personally think it's a great idea.

Not a lot of time folks. From what we've seen so far with testing this will be a good race. All cars seem to be equal and very fast. This is one you won't want to miss...just sayin.

If you haven't signed up for the Carroll Shelby memorial there is still time. Microsoft points have been purchased and all we need is a few more drivers. Looking to get 16 in this event. Select a car and pick up the number plate for your chance at 1600 Microsoft points.

I had a great time. The hour I was in it I had some very close racing. Can't believe I flipped after an hour of racing. Never the less, it was close racing.

BREAKING NEWS:

aka ROWDY from Insomniac Racing is pursuing legal action against Hostess after their "Twinkie" brand sponge cakes flipped him over on lap 19. Investigators are unsure if there was foul play involved, or if it was truly a racing accident. More details will become available as we continue to report on this story.

IN OTHER NEWS:

Maniac Racing is going to be revealing their new paint schemes tonight at 8PM EST on the Forza Sports Car Series forums. You can find the link to the post here.
