It's taken Kyle 7 years and 10s of thousands of laps to make it this far. I'm sure Craig and everyone elase that wins at these events has invested 100s of hours or more a year to acheive there goals. If anyone thinks they can club race once a week and go win at a national event even if someone gave you the best of everything your sorely mistaken. People that win a these events work hard to get that good.

So if you want to be in the A main at a major race start practicing more or just enjoy the hobby for what it is. But don't sit back and bitch about getting beat by unfair motors and batteries by team drivers. Go make it happen for yourself.
Boom.

Awesome post.

Interesting to see what happens to the race this year considering demolition can or may start as soon as May.

Please Please Please do not move this race back to the South Pointe. Or whatever. I don't fly to vegas to be trapped in a Hotel 15 miles from the action. The food there sucks, and there is nothing else around there.

Keep this race on the strip. Whatever it takes.

I think the Rio would be a great a place for this race. Only about 1 mile west of Caesar's.

Great idea; but, getting enough rooms for the IIC during the SEMA run on November 3-6 (Tues-Fri) would be a major challenge. SEMA is huge! Thinking that even the SouthPoint will be full.

That would be awesome, I could kill two birds with one trip. If we are throwing out wishes, then how about Hooters Casino and Hotel.
