Our Black Friday sale was such a success that we're bringing it back for a few days: a 1-year subscription to Grassroots Motorsports for just $9.99. That price is good for a new order, a renewal or a gift. Mom loves Miatas, right?

To take advantage of that special price, go here and enter promo code "hoho." (And don't forget to then click the Apply Code button.)

Thanks again for the support.

Update: This special pricing is good through the end of 2012. Operators are standing by.

Interesting error message... Server Error in '/pdmg' Application.

Index was outside the bounds of the array.

I tried anyway...

noddaz, try again--sounds like just a quick server glitch. (And if you keep having problems, would you please please let us know what browser you're using so we can follow up?)

Thanks, Margie

Ohhh, you are a rock star for sharing that. Thanks, I'll set the dogs on it. (Also, I compressed your post just because it was a long string of stuff for people to scroll through.)

If anyone else is having trouble, you can always call 877-677-6878 and ask for the Last-Minute Special. Operators are standing by
