I Dunno. He told me he really wanted the championship wrapped up so we could have a straight-up VW showdown at LSPR. I was looking forward to it!
I finally reached Jon today and much like Ed shared he just couldn't justify the expense to do LSPR since the championship is already won. If he or his crew are anywhere near as tuckered as I was when I got done with my 2001 season then I can understand why they'd take a pass competing on the UP this year.
He tells me that the car will be there for PR purposes, and the crew will be there to help him collect the hardware Sunday morning. The TDI being up there is good for the StudBug crew since we proved in Minnesota that a lot of New Beetle parts fit on it!
