Congratulations to Mr. Pulfer in 1/12th stock! Man oh man it's been a long time coming, but it couldn't have happened to a better guy.

Hope to see you again soon Mikey.

One of the coolest thing about a big race like this, where everyone(for the most part) is staying on-site is getting to meet the different people you read about, or that you correspond with on here...

I was able to meet and chat with Paul Lemieux and Matt Francis at different times in the elevator...Latif in the Trinity booth and had nice chats with Curtis Schlaht and Josh Cyrul in their rooms...

It was great to see just how friendly and professional everyone was!!

Special thanks go out to my good buddy Darko for planting himself into the boards on purpose to clear the way for Josh in his A-main qualifying run and getting our crew the invite up to shoot the breeze..

What bodies were the most popular this year. It looks like Paul was running a Losi Alpha?

There were a LOT of G6's this year-but I'd guess that the Parma Alfa is still the majority from what I saw.

I suppose this has already been mentioned, but I dont recall-how FREAKING awesome is it that Stock guys Ray Darroch and Dave Johnson stepped it up and POW-two Solid A-Main Mod runs. Dave even made his presence known in the A-main by showing the fender to Barry.

Oh so this answers my dilema how a v2 tear down was up front in such a competetive race, we usually only see official Peak or Orion V2's winning races, and it's the same case over here. Pity I thought finally a motor tuner managed to get these buggers to work up to par to the official Orion ones.

No offence meant to any motor tuner.

Ray Darroch was never really a stock guy, he just followed what many believe to be the logical progression from CONSISTENT stock A-main finisher, to Mod racer. Ray is an unbelieveable talent, who I feel is among the best "natural" wheels EVER in the hobby/sport. DJ is just flat out smooth and knows his game.

It is great to see them both having such great success.

Hey everyone,

I know its been along time since I have been on here....but I have been very busy.....

I had a great time at the race even though the results did show at the end of the event....

To the track crew...it was a bit bumpy but you did the best you could do to smooth it out and I thank you all for your efforts..

To the annoucing crew great job...

Nash...thanks for the cams and the great job on the computer results...

Now for the races....

I know I have never hidden under any false screen names and I still will not when I have a complaint about something....

what happened after the last round of TC was ridiculous....Jon Orr was having problems counting in his car all weekend....he tried everything they told him to do...in the last round he missed one lap in the middle of the run but it got every other lap including the last lap....they gave him his laps every other round but how come not this round? we will never know...Only Mr. Bill will know...I dont take anything away from Dave Johnson he drove great all weekend but Jon Orr deserved to be in the main he ran the time and was not given it when right after the race they told him it would be taken care of then it wasnt because of why...we dont know...but the time that was taken for him was from the day before that put him in the B(where that time was given 4 laps he didnt count)explain that......I dont think anyone here even heard of all the stuff that was going on after that race because people didnt want all you to know...but I do know if I was 10th and not just because he is a teammate but he RAN a time that should have been inthe main...I would have given up my spot because I was 11th quickest.....not taking anything away from DJ(he did finish 4th)....but when you do something all weekend as a race director you need to keep doing it not just when you feel like it(or someone says not to change it)....

Thats just my .02$...........I beleive Jon Orr should feel very good about his actions when all this went down cuz I know the races would not have happened if that stuff would have been told to me after I tried all weekend to make the main and I did but was told that because My transponder didnt count 1 out of 25 laps(right in the middle of the run) the lap wasnt gunna be counted....Come on!....

Jon this is not only from your friend or teammate.but because I really feel....YOU DESERVED TO BE IN THE MAIN......

any comments I will answer in a professional way......because the people who werent there deserve to know the truth...

G-Dizzle: Na, it was a Bicknell Motorsports sweatshirt. Pete Bicknell is an old friend from grade school days. He's wins a bunch on the DIRT Series (for many years now) and has one of the most successfull race car fab shops in the north east. From parts to turn-key "east coast modifieds" - painted, lettered, chromed & anodized, they do it all. I was a "tin folder" there for a few months in 1991 just before starting Pf.
