Thanks for the "heads up", Howie. Last time I watched for Stu on the race, the '04 GTO got ZERO air time. The announcers could not stop talking about the Cadillacs. I hope they hype the Goat a little bit this time.

I see they changed the Billy Goat on the rear from white to silver. I liked the white better, but they may have been asked to change that like they were asked to change the louvers on the hood.

I really, really, really, really, really want a small version of that Billy Goat for my rear side windows. :D

I just finished watching the race @ Limerock. If you are not a Audi , CTS-V or Corvette. for get about getting any TV time. They mentioned Stu's name once in the beginning of the race but that was it. I saw the #5 GTO I think 4 times and that was because of replay. everytime it was coming up to be viewed they changed the camera. Hopefully they will show more at the Mid - Ohio race.

It was very annoying. THe only time I remember hearing Stu's name is when he happened to be close to one of the Caddy's during a restart and they comented on how he's down on hp.

I love WC, but I'm getting really sick of hearing about Caddy's and Audi's all race long.

Your right Howie. The GTO is the only car from the Pontiac line you would think they would want to see it do well. but I think alot has to do with corp sponsors. only wanting there 2 cars shown. the CTS-v and the corvette. it does get real annoying to watch . Cant wait till Ohio, then I can see it first hand.

I wish I could get to the mid-Ohio. That looks like the only way I'll get to see the GTO on the track. TV coverage is dissin' us big time. It's sad that to see your favorite car you have to wear out your pause, replay, and slo-mo buttons. Hey, Dave, tell Stu we're pulling for him anyway.

That and I liked the white Goat from Sebring instead of the silver one!

They are running up at Road America in August and i plan on going. Very good exposure there if you like seeing the pits and stalls up close.
