Rose City Crew-I just want to say you guys put on one great race. To have 5 rounds at a ROAR National....that was awesome....more bang for the buck. The track was fun to race on, had a ton of traction, and all the race officials were really friendly. I think ROAR really needs to take a look at this club. To have a race in the middle of a parking lot is dialed. All of our onroad races should be in parkinglots so more people can see what the sport is all about. The Rose City Crew proved that parking lot racing can be awesome for National events. ROAR needs to get their stuff together and provide tech tools for all the Nationals like is says in their rule book. Also with having the tires teched with markings before the racers received them was da bomb....good way to avoid a lot of headaches.

Come on... I don't know a soul here and I took it as funny as hell...

I for hope he doesn't remove it... its way to funny.


If we can't laugh at ourselves then who are we going to laugh at.... the kids on the short yellow bus?



This was not a slam or a war starter... It was just a public service annoucement.

Todd - I totally agree about the Rose City Club. They were excellent to deal with in every way. If they hold another Nats in the future we will be there.

I'd have to agree with Todd, as funny as it can be that is a touchy subject and certainly not one that I'd like to have made light of on here.

For the race coverage, I went through most of the pics and I have the results ready, I just have to do sponsor sheets and captions and they will all be online. 184 photos this time around, the most yet from any race!

I would guess sometime tomorrow for the photo coverage.

And I'd like to echo everybody else's statements, the club did a heck of a job and really put on a great event. I think they could have used some more guidance from ROAR but maybe that's just me. In any case it was the best Nationals that I've been to yet, and having the parking lot deal was a great idea, the whole point of these races should be to get new people involved in the hobby, not just to crown a new set of champions.

Tood, thanks for you kind words. It was my pleasure to meet you and thanks for giving us headsup and the whole issue with the guages. It was my pleasure to meet you.

Adrian, once again thank you for the kind words.

I just want to say that I was pleasantly suprised by and wasn't expecting how friendly the pro drivers are. And just happen they are the most understanding people during this event. I guess they have "been there", "done that"....seen everything.

I can't say enough.... even though Adrian wasn't present during the race week, but him, Todd and Brent (Thielke) are AWESOME guys!

I've met a LOT of great people during this race!

Dom
