Rank #8: Lee Grimes and a bunch of SCCA STL idiots record a show at Mid Ohio
Rockstar Superhero shock and strut guru Lee Grimes from Koni wandered into the garage, because we were recording next to his car, and helped us produce the most amazing podcast ever recorded in the history of podcastingness. Or at very least he helped us create the one you will likely download after reading this totally meaningless description. Rate and Review the show on Itunes or wherever you do those things, and if you like it the show, tell your friends. If you don't like the show, and are still reading this, tell your dog, or someone you hate, that'd be fine too.
