It was a good article about Ernie. He's ticked off about the nationals. Without being there I've seen him do a few things in the past. Business is business- if you get away with it that's fine. It's an expensive hobby to me but it's my only active hobby. I've got to meet some very interesting people thought the years. That's one thing I've enjoyed the most. As for getting kids and families involved I can say right now one of his Factory driver was one of those families that traveled over Florida in our series. Now the son is sponsored by Trinity Alex Lopez his father Gabe owns TQ Hobbies (one of his business) and has also gotten 100% better over the years. Again I seen other father and son and daughters get involved. Our hobby doesn't get enough exposurer to the general public.It does help if there is a real car series that is on TV (Nascar- Lemans America series- Touring Car). Also the Hobby shops that set -up a track in the parking lot Not buried in the back somewhere out of general site.
