I want to thank all of the racers for coming out to the Roar Region 12 race. I had a great time with all of you . I learned a lot about Roar racing and so did several of our novice drivers of the club .I also want to thank all the sponsors, club and board members that volunteered there weekend to make this happen

Wow, what a great weekend that was !

First off, I'd like to say thanks to the RoadRunners for putting on such an awesome event, you guys really raised the fun bar on ROAR events.

-Tech was smooth and friendly
-Racing was smooth and efficiently on time
The awards and trophies were very cool, thanks for going the extra mile on the F1 award, too cool

The dog tags for TQ, great idea.

Just had a great time, racing with my buds from Norcal, and the local hotshoes.
And Chris, thanks for the photos, just another perk for racing with the RR's gang.

12th is back baby !

Sean, get off the dope. BTW, everyone is still awaiting for your appreciation to the Road Runners for all their efforts. I will send you the Dr.'s bill for all the injuries to my leg. This.... is also banter on my behalf . I forgive you because you did offer to help me pick up the rummage after everyone bailed. Clean up wasn't as bad as it appeared.

Also before I forget, I want to thank all drivers for clean driving most of the time. The 2 bump ups in 17.5 showed excellant sportsmanship in the triple A Mains. Mike Atherton Jr. and Mr. Dujon I believe it was. Both ran their race while allowing faster cars right of way and did not interfere with the outcome. Wish some of the more experienced would take a notes from them.

Mr. Lewis was polite and friendly while at the track. Announcing the lap times was cool but calling traffic would have been better. I think announcing what heat was taking place would of helped too.

Nite nite.

Paco,

Myself and Jr thank you for the kind words this means a lot to us, driving etiquette is very important and one of the things I have been coaching Jr on.

It was nice to race with you and all the people this last weekend we had an awesome time, thank you Roadrunner VOLUNTEERS for putting on a great event, it ran smooth and was great fun!

Your welcome, had fun taking them.

I am in the process of editing in Photoshop about 200 "highlight" photos from the 1400 taken. The 60 I have edited so far can be viewed here:
