Default Thank you...

As many have you may know, my racing career has been coming to a close the last couple of months. I graduate next semester from the University of Miami and I recently became a Licensed Mortgage Broker in the state of Florida. R/C racing has been very good to me over the last 10 years. I have met so many different characters, pissed many people off, ran for many different manufactures, won various titles, and have made friends that will last lifetime. With that being said, I just wanted to announce that I will no longer be attending Major Carpet of Asphalt events for the next couple of years. I just wanted to thank all off my major sponsers over the last ten years; Schumacher USA( PW and Adrian for giving me the fundamental tools to become a champion), Protoform( Dale for being one of the nicest guys i have ever met)Fantom-Racing( Troy), Putnum Propulsion( Todd Putnum for always making me feel like i could do it) EA Motorsports(Eric Anderson for always being a nice guy eventhough I was an ass half the time) Team Trinity( EP,TP, Latif and Sarquis), Team Xray/RC America( Ralph Burch and Jurai Hudy for producing the best touring car ever desinged and for helping me win many nationals), Team Speedmerchant( Bruce Carbone for helping my win my first National), Team Brood( Eddie O, Porno, and Garret for being the best Motor/Batter sponsor anyone can have), Team Novak( Charlie, steve and Bob for being so generous) KO Propo( Sanwa for always being clutch), Dave Vera, Furman Walker, the Bowsers, Roly, Dobbs, Potter, BUTTTTER!( for being like a big brothers to me), and to my father for always putting up with my crap and being there for me. I wont give up racing forever. I will still race the series here in Florida(FSEARA) and will always check out there new products in the industry. Thank you to everyone and i will never be able to repay any of you for the memories.

P.S- If anyone ever needs to refinance or obtain a mortgage in Florida call me up...786-246-4837.

Good luck to you Alex. Wish I could have gotten to race and hang out with you more before you moved on, but I understand. Hopefully I'll run in to you down in FL.

Alex, you help me a few times when i could not get my car going and just want to thank you for your help and the move you made to give up something that you love to go out in the world and be a better man is outstanding that is the best move anyone could make because there's no future in rc racing when it come to real life, the best in your career endeavor
God bless you.

Don't quit, get you some stickies for your car "your company, sponsoring your car" and do a tax write off under "business expenses" (advertisement)! I imagine with a little creativity you could write off mileage expenses too!
