My appologies for being such a slacker and not posting-alot of things have been going on lately and "me" time is at a premium. I didn't race last weekend and probably won't be for sometime because my real cars' motor is nearing completion and I need to pay for that. Sorry Dave A., I probably won't be racing at the NORRCA Nats, but I'm pretty sure my little brother, Petenis, will be racing. I am not sure if he'll run stock or Mod, but it will definately be 1/12 scale. I will probably be his "pit bitch" for a while until my motor is sitting in my 1/1 scale car. I am so bummed!!! I already miss it. When Duey's closed, I waited for two years for him to find another location... which never happened. Now I have to wait again, but not as long. I will be able to buy better stuff once I return since I don't have the "I am saving for my race motor" excuse anymore.
The Petenis is more than capable of carrying the Simons Bros. Racing torch until I can return. We haven't even been back into racing a full year yet, and Petenis started racing 1/12 scale of any kind about 8-9 months and never ceases to impress his older brother with his still-blossoming abilities. He can solidly kick my butt all over the place in Mod, in stock, and in sedans, when we both started up again about 8-9 months ago. I will try to post when I am not trying to kill myself with work. Good luck to everybody who posts here and I will hopefully be seeing some of you at the NORRCA Nats. Keep them race reports coming in, hearing how others do this 1/12 scale deal is fodder for great ideas and ways to get faster.
Keep the shiny side up, fellers!
