Stevand Racing at Summit Motorsports Park

Two Weeks In a Row!

At the end of my last writings I had said that I was going to go out at do a little testing on Thursday at PRP…I should have stayed home! What is great for race tracks is huge turnouts on test and tune nights. What is bad for someone like me who wants to actually test is, you got it huge turn outs. But it was good for the track to get such a great car count and I did end up getting in three passes for the night and was able to make a little ground on my set up. With getting those three runs in I was able to determine that the car was still a little on the rich side because it was wanting to pick up a little every pass. So after work on Friday I high tailed it to Norwalk Ohio to try to make a couple test passes at SMP which always has the same problem that PRP had the night before, a ton of cars. I ended up getting there around eight pm pulled the car out and took some jet sizes out of the carburetor to lean it up a little and try to eliminate the variance in colder weather. Handy enough for me they were in the middle of cleaning up an oil down so I was able to finish up what I needed and sneak in the lanes. By the end of the night at two AM I had gotten in two passes with great results of the car only moving .005 in the quarter in two runs.

Saturday was exactly what the weather man predicted, Rain and a lot of it. Since it had plans to rain all morning Amanda and I took the chance to run over to Macedonia Ohio to Precision Hotrods and Fabrications annual open house. I help out there on the weekends in the winter so it’s always good to stop in and say HI and see what all new is going on. By about two in the afternoon things where getting a little brighter and they got back on the track to dry it off so we made our journey back to Whew!SMP in just enough time for them to call us to the lanes for our one and only time trial. The night was cut short for us only after one round of racing due to more rain. Steve and I both made it through to collect our one point for the night. Steve’s opponent went red and had a nice and easy first round, I on the other hand barely made it through giving up a decent amount on the starting line my .029 light to his .004. Luckily I had enough room on the other end to work and managed to take .003 for a dead on my dial in with a zero for the win.

Sunday was a race day that I have been looking forward to and I could finally make it. A good friend of mine Nick Karas teamed up with Willow Lake Park to organize a 7.00 eight mile super street shootout race at Magnolia Dragway. Something very out of the norm for me, as we never race on a pro tree format as well as an index style race where you can only dial 7.00. But Always up for a challenge I somehow managed my way through the 32 car 6 round field to pull the trusty ole Spirit back in the winner circle for the second week in a row to collect the one thousand dollar prize money up for grabs! It was an awesome win just based on it was a totally different style of racing packed full of great racers that .90 race all the time. In the midst of all that going on I was still entered in magnolias weekly bracket program putting the spirit up for double duty, I fell just short in the fifth round of competition giving the finish line back by .001. But at the end of the day that didn’t matter I had a blast regardless and I have to say thanks again to the Dragway of Magnolia staff for having an awesome facility and great employees!Mags HR Win

This week I will be back at PRP for one of their points meet and hopefully keep this streak alive, after that Amanda and I will be making our way to Dragway 42 for their Sunday points program that I haven’t been to in a couple months to try to make enough points to make their bracket finals team

Winning Without Racing!

It’s kinda like Fishing without Fishing. That’s when you come home with fish & never went fishing. With an all Ford race @ Summit Motorsports Park this past weekend & being way behind on a ton of non race stuff I did some catching up.

RotoTillerI made it to the finish line with the rototiller in my moms garden. The problem with racing & yard work is you race when it’s nice out & stay home when it rains. You do yard work when it’s nice out & you stay inside when it rains. See the problem? So the garden is finally planted, the branches that fell all winter are burned, & Moms place looks pretty good again. In another month or so we will be making Spaghetti Sauce, Zucchini bread, & Pickles. Yummay!! A win in my book…

 

I did do some race related stuff. One thing a lot of racers neglect is their tow rigs & I’m probably one of the worst! I tow with a 1997 Ford Diesel Dually. I knew it needed some love but out of sight out of mind seems to be a way of life for me lately. You remember what needs done when your towing to the track. First I changed the oil & oil filter. The Ford 7.3 Liter Diesel motor takes 15 quarts of oil & a 20 plus dollar oil filter. I write the date on the oil filter to keep track of when it was last changed. I really only use the truck for towing so once a year oil change isn’t stretching it too far. BUT after further examination it was 2 years since the last change. Yeah I’m pretty bad. I changed the fuel filter which I do change that often as diesel is a pretty dirty fuel.Oil Change

One thing that really needed attention since I bought the truck 5 or 6 years ago is the exhaust system. I took a trip to Summit Racing Sunday morning while it was raining & picked up a sweet new stainless exhaust system. By the time I got back to Moms the rain had stopped so I decided to try my hand @ installing the new system. After about 3 hours some minor scrapes & a ton of rust in my eyes despite safety glasses the job was complete. The truck is happy & should be good to get me down to the World Footbrake Challenge in Bristol Tennessee next month.

Not a win on the track but a great accomplishment off the track. Now to change the oil in the Gremlin before the No Box Nationals @ SMP starts this Friday.

Not Bad, Not Bad…

Like the title says, It wasn’t such a bad week. The goodness started off on Wednesday night @ Summit Motorsports Parks $7 Fun Night. Wednesday nights are the best way to get your feet wet in racing. There are a variety of entry level classes that mostly run for trophies rather than cash purses. That one change keeps the competition @ a fun level. Amanda was able to get off work in time to make it to SMP this past Wednesday & try her hand @ the $7 fun night. A late night for a week night led Amanda to her first final round in the new ride. She took the runner up positions in a tough race against a full out race car. A great night to gain some experience.

Saturday split the team up a little. Matt & Amanda went to the high school graduation party for Matt’s brother in Pennsylvania.Grad Matt took his race car car with him in case there was time to make it to the races @ Pitsburgh Raceway. It turned out there was time to make it there in time to get some racing in. Matt did pretty good, loosing in the 4th round to the eventual event runner up.

I had a long weekend that started off Friday evening with the Relay For Life @ Wooster High School. With my Dad passing away from cancer & myself having a cancerous mole removed this event has become an event I look forward to participating in. The outpouring of support & the lives effected by this terrible disease was amazing. I got very little sleep due to helping my girlfriend out activities which she in charge of for the entire event. It kept the morale up & raised even more money for a great cause. After about a good 3 hours of sleep it was time to help set up for the Relay Car Show. I made my donation & entered the ole Gremlin in the car show. Not being a “Show Car” I entered more for support than the expectation of winning something. Out of dumb luck I wound up winning “Longest Owned”. The funny part is that the prize was a case of Brad Penn Oil donated by none other than Stevand Racing. What are the odds. I couldn’t take my own prize & chose to donate it to a nice gentleman with a beautiful 1968 Oldsmobile 442 convertible. He was pleased with his prize & thankful to Stevand Racing for the donation.Relay

After the car show wrapped up I high tailed it home to take a quick shower then hurried to SMP just missing the first time run. No big deal I would just hit the 2nd one. Of course the day I only get one time run I go to launch the car & it rolls through the starting beam. I try to hurry up & back up but nothing! After trying a few things I decided to just drive it down the track & see what the problem was when I got back to my pit space. I quickly figured out a fuze had blown thanks to my 20 year old wiring. I figured I would try & get back to the lanes quickly to see if they would let me try & make a real pass. Because I had not taken the full tree they had no problem letting me back in. After almost having no time runs & a little excitement I made it down to the round of 14 cars. The lack of sleep had caught up to me & I was pretty late on my reaction time. I finally made it home @ 3am & took all day Sunday to recover.

Matt & Amanda started back to Ohio to run @ Dragway 42′s Sunday Pionts program. Shortly after heading this way, 42 cancelled the days racing due to rain? Weird call seeing as how it only rained breifly. So everyone had a day to rest up for the work week. Overall A pretty good week.

Matt’s car is still in Pittsburgh with no racing @ Norwalk this weekend he will run their Saturday program then come back here for 42 on Sunday. I will take a weekend to do some much needed car maintenance……

Time flies when your having fun!!!

Hi everyone! here is the Bi-Weekly, weekly update. These past few moths have been a bit crazy! When the weather gets warm it’s time to play catch up on all the things you didn’t or couldn’t do all winter. Before you know it it’s June & your asking yourself where did the time go? Well it went somewhere!Time Flies

I can tell you where the last 2 weeks went. Memorial day weekend is usually a fun filled action packed 3 days of racing But it turned out to be a weird one. Saturday was our first race day of the weekend. We all headed to Summit Motorsports Park for the 4th Mr Gasket Super Series points race. It was also when the Super 64 was to be contested. I had qualified for the Super 64 last year & was going to be my last race for a while.

I went into Saturday with a good amount of confidence. After warming the car up & accepting the class call to the lanes I prepped for the first time run of the day. I hit the tree in my normal spot & came up .019 red. Hmmm. I was way red the last points race as well. I didn’t think it would affect me but it obviously did.  SMP had rewired the entire timing system with state of the art fiber optic wiring. The new wiring tightened up the starting line putting me on the evil red side of the reaction time game. Time to make a drastic change. I played with different buttons & figured out if I just shift my finger position on the button & sit on the last bulb it should slow me down plenty. I was .045 on the good side on the last time run before the big race. A .045 would give me a starting point but would not cut it in a run off for such a huge prize @ stake. My competitor was stellar & I took a beating on a double break out finish. He went on to win one of the $20,000 prizes.

After all that excitement we still had a full night of racing ahead of us. 3 Stevand Racing cars @ a chance to nab a nice payday. The rest of the evening was looking pretty good with all of us making it through 1st round, then 2nd round, then third round! Matt was the first one to slip up with a heartbreaking red light to his competitors not so stellar light. Amanda made it down to 5 cars (1/4 finals) before losing on a dead on run. I finally cut a pretty good light & ran dead on my dial only to loose to a better light & a dead on run. :-/ We all did great gaining some valuable points putting us all in the top 16. I was not going to join points this year to dedicate some time to the Hornet but after going that far in eliminations I had to join. Once a racer always a racer I guess?

Sunday was a points day @ Dragway 42. Matt & Amanda had a Memorial day family picnic to attend on Sunday. Family first! I decide to give it a crack & see if I could win a few bucks, get some practice, & hang out with some friends. I was doing pretty good making it down to about 12 cars before a mechanical issue ended my day. We have RPM switches that activate a solenoid that moves the shifter & shifts the car. Well my RPM switch decided it didn’t want to shift anymore. So I had to fix that!

Saturday June 1st we were back to SMP for the 5th points race of the year. Like i said, Time Flies! We reluctantly made the 45 minute trek to Norwalk. Why reluctantly? The weatherman had the day pegged for tons of rain & thunderstorms. Chance of rain 80% through the day.Bad Weather It’s really hard to spend all that money towing all the way up there & turn around when it rains out. But in true SMP fashion we had partly cloudy skies & nice breezes. We made it through time trials & Matt & I made it through the first round of our class but before Amandas’ class was called to the lanes Mother Nature caught up to us. The heavens opened up & dropped the entire ocean on us. Driving rains & standing water was what we had to look forward to on the way home. The good news is they split the purse in our class & we got some money to help cover the fuel cost for the trip.

Matt & Amanda hit Dragway 42 on Sunday. It was kind of a short day for both, losing early in the rounds & headed home for some relaxation before starting the work week.

I will be @ SMP this Saturday & Matts’ brother is graduating from high school in Pennsylvania so Matt & Amanda will be there for that on Saturday. Matt is going to try & sneak out early & hit up Pittsburgh Raceway for their Saturday program. They will be back Dragway 42 on Sunday for their Summit Super Series points race.

Check back & see how the weekend goes!

 

The Two Week Update

Better late then never some say! Being only a week behind this time of year is not bad at all for us. Lets jump back a week to the start of the season at Summit Motorsports Park, The first outing for us in the 2013 season.

Things overall went really smooth usually after working all winter long on my car it seems like there are always a few loose strings. Luckily enough that wasn’t the case this year and it was pick up right were I had left off. Saturday night @ Summit Motorsports Park I ended up making it down to 15 cars losing 4th round at 2:30am Sunday morning!IMG_4260

Amanda did rather well for the first time out in something that she has never ran before. She wound up losing in the second round to a well seasoned racer who has a quarter mile long list of accomplishments of his own. The Concord has fully exceeded all expectations I had for it. It has turned into a nice, low 13 second, fully functional street car, that we can drive back and forth to the local tracks to minimize the expense of having two tow vehicles and trailers.

Steve ended up losing in the second round of competition to end our first outing at Summit Motorsports Park for the year.

Week two and we are back at it just like that. Saturday was the second points race of the year at SMP. As for me & Steve we don’t have much to talk about. Unfortunately we both red lighted our chances away first round for a very short night. On the other hand Amanda was going off in the sportsman class.

After making her two time trail passes we opted to make a not so conventional change to her system. She decided she wanted to “Deep Stage” first round in an effort to pick up her slower (but consistent) reaction times. So deep staging is a process of staging deeper to move yourself closer to the starting line to help pick up your reaction time with a slower reacting vehicle. She handled it really well and the change showed greatly in her reaction times for the rest of the night before she lost to yet another veteran racer. It what was an awesome race. She was .008 to his .019 on the tree and the margin of victory was .0002 not in her favor. All things considered not a bad outing for the Concord.

IMG_4252Sunday we are at Dragway 42 for out first points race of the year. Its Amanda and myself flying solo for the day as Steve opts to stay back and not go out for the day.

We get there in enough time to make one time trial each. We both make decent runs and are ready to go at it. Amanda lucks out and get pulled for the first round bye and gets the luck of making a single run for the first round win. She ended her day a little short by turning on the red light in the second round. I somehow managed my way through the majority of the field before I fell short in the semi finals when I miss chose a dial in and was pretty much just along for the ride at that point. But still a healthy start for the year there.

The first two weeks out had some ups and downs but overall we are happy with how everything has worked with all the cars and we just have to focus on blowing off the winter cob webs. This weekend brings us back to SMP for the third points race of the year and Sunday off for mothers day. Steve has the weekend off for some R&R in Hawaii. There may just be a weekend update from Hilo Dragway????

A New Guy at the Summit Motorsports Park Awards Banquet

The 2012 racing season was the first year that I’ve had a chance to work with Stevand Racing. Before welcoming Stevand Racing to the More Than a Fan family, my motorsports experience was a show at the old Norwalk Raceway Park when I was still young enough to think I didn’t need earplugs and watching NASCAR on television. Since the beginning of last race season, I’ve learned a ton about bracket racing, been rained out at the track and met the great group of people that are associated with Stevand Racing. And Saturday, January 27th was the perfect cap to an eventful season.

Andy, Steve and Matt Obertanec invited me to join them at the 2012 Summit Motorsports Park Awards Banquet. I let a few guys from More Than a Fan know about the invite, and Damien Bowman decided that he wanted to meet the team and see what kind of show the Bader family can put on for their racers. (If there was going to be a Cliff’s Notes of this column, the answer to what kind of show I saw Saturday would simply be, “Holy Crap.” It actually wasn’t going to be crap, but this is a family show)

We arrived at Kalahari for the conference at a little before 1pm and were immediately whisked to the Bill Bader, Jr.’s State of Summit Motorsports Park talk. Not only did I learn a lot about what’s going on at the track in 2013, it was impossible not to notice the rapport that Bader, Jr. had with the room full of racers. No matter the class, the car, the win/loss record or the hometown, the man at the very top of one of the most impressive drag racing tracks in the country knows almost every one of the local points drag racers by name. There is a lot to be said about smooth marketing and promotion, but none of that matters without being genuine with your base. I’m still new to the scene, so I’m not going to run around saying that Bill Bader, Jr. is perfect, but I can vouch for my gut reaction from that first seminar and confidently say that he knows his base and that he works hard for them.

Directly after Bader, Jr.’s talk Drag Racer Bingo started up. At this point, I have absolutely no idea what’s going on. Don’t get me wrong, I know how to play bingo, it’s just that I wasn’t expecting the people throwing hats and t-shirts into the crowd, or the excitement over some of the bingo prizes. I’m not sure what I would have done with a set of Mickey Thompson Tires racing slicks or a big package of prizes from Wiseco Performance Products, but once I got hit in the head with a t-shirt, I started to get pretty excited to win something.

Alas, winning wasn’t in the (bingo) cards for me Saturday, but watching the racers play the game and being in the middle of such a huge group of people that all seem to feel like family was pretty fantastic.

After some down time and boring business type talk with the Stevand Racing boys, it was time to put on the suits and head down to the ballroom for the Mr. Gasket Banquet of Champions, the 39th Annual Summit Motorsports Awards Ceremony.

Wow.

The Mr. Gasket Banquet of Champions was promotion and production at the highest level. At any given time, there were almost 600 people in the ballroom spread between the 68 guest tables and the Champions Tables that were actually on stage with the Bader family and the huge structure showcasing the night’s trophies and awards. The night was such an amazing showcase of the racers at Summit Motorsports Park that it was easy to get caught up in thinking that these guys were the same dragsters that we see on television every weekend.

IMG_20130126_130607From the junior racer awards to hearing the acceptance speeches of the Track Champions to the show choir and marching band to the banter between Bader, Jr. and his father Bill Bader, Sr., the whole banquet was filled with the kind of entertainment that one would expect from a national showcase. That all that class and entertainment was built on the foundation of drag racing in Norwalk, Ohio and the points classes at Summit Motorsports Park is truly amazing. (It was so awesome that I didn’t even mind the last name on my credential packet)

The Bader family did a fantastic job entertaining and showcasing their drag racing family Saturday, and I’m looking forward to spending some time at the track this summer with Stevand Racing and enjoying the show at Summit Motorsports Park. Keep an eye out for our event calendar and come visit us in the pits.

A little look back @ 2012

As we prepare for the 2013 racing season I can’t help but take a look back @ all the fun times we had on our racing adventures. From racing in our back yard to out of state jaunts, they all have a story.

Overall Matt & I had a pretty successful year. No major breakage. Many Many minor pains but I will take those over a motor explosion every time. We walked away with  our heads up high & a car to race next year.

My most memorable race this year had to be the NHRA Bracket finals in Indy. The fellowship @ this race has been awesome the past 2 years. Being a team event comprised of people you raced against all year it is a bit tough @ times to find fellowship. I am not sure what changed but this event has become a favorite. Matt touched base on his “Update of all Updates” Blog on September 9th on my progress @ the Bracket finals. Besides winning a Shootout on Friday & getting down to 8 cars in the main event was only a portion of the fun. The weekend included some creativeness with cap guns, yes the childrens kind, A flat front tire on the race car, A severe shock from the race car coil, & some serious golf cart wheelies. It’s always a success when you get a visit from the law when you have actually not done anything illegal.

That was my favorite weekend. I look forward to more Shenanigans this coming season. How about you?

Shenanigans

 

Halloween Classic Update!!

I started this update a week ago but a computer glitch lost half of it forever. I was pretty mad to say the least & deleted it all! Well, I have calmed down a little & ready to give it another try.
The Halloween Classic @ Summit Motorsports Park is a tradition that has been going on for 37 years. The once small gathering of racers to close out the race season has turned into the worlds largest sportsman event with entries totaling over 1300 in some years. The race has grown into a 7 day long super race with multiple races, contests, & give aways.
Sunday is known as move in day. Picture the race track having a black Friday sale offering half price cars. That is the sense of urgency getting into the track to get a good parking space for the week. Just picture 800 plus race rigs trying to get in the track first to get the best spots. Exciting & a truly awesome sight.
We weaseled our way in with the crowd & managed a decent parking spot for the week. With all this mayhem there is still a race to run. We parked then unloaded the 3 Stevand race cars. Yes 3 Stevand cars. We hired Matts girlfriend Amanda to wheel the company Javelin in the Sportsman class. We got the cars fueled, prepped & made it through our time trials without incident. On to eliminations! Both Matt & I exited the race in the 2nd round but Amanda powered on & made it to the 4th round. The first day of this massive race was in the books.
The rest of the week consisted of a huge Corn Hole tournament on Monday. Tuesday was the Mean Motorhome race (a real sight to see). Wednesday started the Gamblers races. Amanda was entered in a Wednesday Gamblers race. She was killer on the tree all week recording a perfect reaction time first round Sunday. Today was no exception. .014 on the tree but coming up short on the other end of the track by .0001. She was MAD! See Picture. LOL
I went out to the track to make some time runs on Thursday to get my head back in the game. Thursday was to be the last nice day of the event. The announcement was made that the schedule for Friday was to change in anticipation of rain. The original schedule had time trials all day with Mine & Matts Gamblers race to start around 6:00. The new schedule had us on track to start eliminations @ 8am Friday morning. No time run just straight to eliminations. Matt & I got to the track @ 8am sharp only to find they decided to start a few minutes early. YIKES! There were only 128 cars in the class. That’s 64 pair to go down in the round. We had to hurry. We both made it to the lanes, half prepared but won our rounds. Whew!!! We went back up shortly after 1st but were sent back due to a pesky mist. The mist subsided & we both won our 2nd round. That would be it for the day. The money was split between the survivors of 2nd round. We were just happy to be in the mix but frustrated on the other hand we were robbed of the chance to win.
Saturday is the big day of the Classic. If you have never experienced it you need to. Matt & I both won our first round. Amanda won her first round of Sportsman in the Javelin. Things were looking good. Racing continued till late in the evening when Mother Nature decided that was enough. The kids got their chance to trick or treat. Imagine going trick or treat from car to car on a busy day @ Cedar Point. This is like Christmas for a little kid. Then the famous Jaz Wheelie Contest. Watch it on You Tube & it explains itself. But regardless of the fun off track we were done for the night.
Bright & early we were back @ it. They finished up 1st round of Super Pro & made the Call for Pro. That’s our cue to head up for 2nd round. Both our cars were stuck on the dial. Better than most of the year & it showed on track with us both advancing to 3rd round. That’s where the fun ended. Hurricane Sandy had arrived. The rains came & would not leave till later in the week. There is a policy in place @ the Classic to make sure the event is completed that weekend. The dreaded Tent! All the remaining tech cards are put in a pile & 2 @ a time are chosen. The 2 cards are then shuffled, put behind the track owners back, the driver of the 1st card picked then chooses left or right.  The card that is picked advances on. Amanda lost 2nd round, I lost 3rd round & Matt lost down to 9 cars. Our Classic was over.
Most of us were not happy with going to the tent but with the massive car count & distance traveled by some racers it is the fairest way to go. Our season is done for the most part. Matt will be heading to the Fall Footbrake Frenzy @ Coastal Plains Dragway in Jacksonville, North Carolina to try & win his share of $30,000 in prize money. It is time for me to continue with the Car Craft engine build & work on my newest project for next years race season.

Stevand Racing Podcast with Steve Obertanec

This is the first ever all Stevand Racing podcast on the More Than a Fan Podcast Network.

I (Josh) recorded the  inaugural episode in the More Than a Fan Basement, but Steve makes his appearance via Skype, so he could be anywhere. He even told me he was naked. Luckily, we had the video turned off.

(I wasn’t wearing pants, either)

We talk about Steve’s time in Indy, Matt winning the Dragway 42 Championship, and the guys weekend at Pittsburgh Raceway Park.

Here you go, let us know what you think!

Big Weekend

Well, the last week turned out to be a series of strange events. The forecast  was showing nearly 100% chance of rain for Saturday. It looked bleak as to if we would even get the chance to contend out last points race of the year at SMP, But waking up it turned out the be the exact opposite. it was a perfect day for racing!

 So how did everything go you ask?…It didn’t! As luck would have it (for some people and not so much for other people) there must have been a lightning strike  in the over night storms that hit and fried parts of the tracks timing system. No timing system means no racing. You ask were does that leave us for the end of the year? It leaves Steve with a good finish for the year in seventh place. For this he will receive some money at the end of the year and for the second year in a row qualifies for the NHRA bracket finals contested this weekend in Indy. Steve will be making the trip out Thursday at some point and hopefully following up last years performance but just a touch better seeing as he made it to the semifinals last year. As for myself I do not have much to show for there this year @ SMP. The times I showed up this year I did great but as fate would have it due to sickness social gatherings and so on I managed to have a great start to the season and fizzle out at the end finishing in a tie for what I believe is twenty fourth (I stopped looking a while ago) So that means to end of the year money and no Super 64 runoff. But you just can’t dwell on the what if’s and should of’s.

On the other hand there is our Sunday racing at Dragway 42. Witch Sunday, due to some unforeseen rain put an early end to the day with yet again just one time trial down the track and no eliminations. As Steve touched on before due to some sort of points sign up errors I moved from third in the standings to first. This coming weekend will be a big one for me as well with a double points race this Saturday and Sunday. These are also the last two races before the IHRA bracket finals at Pittsburgh so I have a lot to gain or lose. Indy being this weekend is somewhat of a help because a few of the drivers (Steve included) will not be able to make it to the last two points races so it gives me a little buffer, not much though due to good friend Jose Diaz being in second place and only two rounds behind and he will be there for the two days of points racing.

Nail Biting Time

Hopefully after this weekend Steve and myself will have nothing but good things to talk about. In this sport as most of you have probably figured out by now you never count your eggs until they hatch because anything and everything will happen before then. So stay tuned and we will bring you an update next week filled with all the details!
