Congratulations Kara! Sorry we couldn't be there, but hey we were there for 500 and 800 :). As for the off season, are you going to be riding Magnum in front your TV again?

1000 cycles on the Drummer Boy is better than 1000 cycles on the Log Jammer, right Kara? ;) Well, I guess that depends who you're with...

Congratulations! It's so cool to be friends with a "celebrity!"

Well done! Do you keep a diary or what? If you don't mind my asking, does it go something like this "June 23, lap 675, great one, better than the last but not as good as this morning. I think a wheel in the last car needs to be greased some more." ;)

Maybe when I'm in the States I'll drop by. Say for your 2,000th ride? :)

Did anyone catch the title of the story in the Tribune? LMAO!

Hey Rob tell me again what is a Buckeye? You told me but I forgot I believe it's a nut, which explains a lot abotu everyone that lives there
Anyway Congrats Kara. Nice article, you are now famous among all those sand dunes around Grand Haven. ;)

All I need is 4.5 million bucks and a half a mile long sliver of land and maybe someone could build me my very own Shivering Timbers. *** This post was edited by MagnumForce on 10/1/2002. ***

Very nice article Kara, and a great way to end the season. So what are you shooting for next year? Besides Drummer Boy, that is.

Is that your senior picture in the article?? I expected one of you on the track, or with Timbers in the background!
