But some of the sickness could be just the cold air. I don't think the human body like radical changes in weather and even though I was only outside of a few moments, it was cold.

X2.... Hope your mom gets to feeling better soon.... Bout got this mess cleared out of my system....
Mama Red has the flu for the first time in years. She actually missed work today! I've been hacking up a lung. I agree with Kleenaire, though. I would rather hack up a lung and be sick after the Bowl than miss the Bowl.
I love Moma & Popa Red.... Oh yea you too Red....

I don't think one has to be expensive. Something that I will think about next Chillibowl.
Pokieokie did bring up a interesting point and that is most of us will probably go again.
I'm already thinking about it. Some things in life seem to happen. I can imagine going to the Chillibowl again.
It's not that I had so much fun, but I did, but it just that the Chillibowl experience is something that I don't truely understand yet. Going to the Chillibowl was a last minute idea for me based on helping a friend and he appreciated it. I think the Chillibowl is about friendships and helping people and if you enjoy the racing that is the 'icing on the cake'. I look forward to the next Chillibowl not for the racing and it will be fun but for the friendships that I will make. Those last a lifetime.
Larry Otani and happy racing in 2011.

after Chili Bowl.

The Chillibowl had a completely different affect on me. I don't like to bragg about it or even think about it, but I'm already thinking about next year's Chillibowl. My buddy already gave me advice on what I should be thinking about. We will probably have an upgrade in the motors and chassis' and doing a few things that the rules don't allow for in normal USAC racing. Not that we are goin' to win or anything but just taking the race for what it is and the rules allow one to experiment and try different things not allowed in normal Midget Racing.
Again, I don't want to take it too seriously. I'm glad to be part of a team and help out. As my buddy told me I have helped him for a couple years now and I'm a member of the team whether I want to be or not. It's amazing I never thought I would be part of a team at the Chillibowl and I have already learned a few things I should be looking for at next years bowl. Namely taking a closer look at the cars that run, the driver that run and how they run. Track conditions played less a part than in past years, at least that is what I was told. Time for me to take a little closer look at track conditions next year and that means probably getting there a little earlier to see how the track takes shape during the week. I was told Racing Boys commented on track conditions being harder this year to pass another car. So if you didn't start up front and get a good pill draw the week could be rather long and discouraging. Supposedly it was not that way in past races at the Chillibowl.
Again, friendships are the big thing at the Chillibow. As I get older it's not so much if you win or loose but being part of the experience and absorbing and fulfilling a dream to be part of a team.
Larry Otani and I hope you get well!
