TRUTH IN ADVERTISING
This event was designed to accommodate a maximum of 12 cars. At this time, there are only two cars enrolled. In order to minimize participant disappointment due to low turnout, one week prior to the event, we will notify everyone of the number of participants and everyone should feel free to cancel. While we are willing to continue with only one other car, it is possible the event will disappear due to "popular demand". Or lack there of.
