Hey mate,
welcome in. That's quite a car history you have there! :-)
Check out the Show us your ride section to see some of our cars. You might find the time difference a bit tricky between US and AUS, but it's worth having a go. Most races are on at around 9pm AEST, which (I think) is around 7am your time?
But there's always the hot lap competitions and others that you can check out.

Well I am just getting off work when you guys are starting so maybe I'll catch a late race. I hope there is no lag issues.
