Merely playing Devils advocate here...

but there were a bunch of mercy minutes given during the race. Not giving any names or instances except for that when my guy needed a minute.. IN THE MAIN.. there was no give.

ALSO.. my car nearly got DQed because EA put a motor sticker on it that did not cover any part of the engraved number or identifying marks. It was not in the rule book that stickers werent allowed... and untill then, i have never seen it to be a problem. ESPECIALLY, considering the purple endbell/chrome motors arent even sold to the public (i was told). This was kinda rediculous IMHO.

I love comming to cleveland every year and getting kicked in the nutz.. but this year was a little less than spectacular. OR perhaps i was just so blown away by vegas that this race didnt measure up.

I will come back next year.. but if it is a repeate of this year.. best of luck in 07'

Keith

That was a good one, no matter who you're talking about.

But then on lap 2, Barry moves to 3rd and Matt drops to the back of the pack? was there some contact?

Yes, it was definately a pile up at the start. I was filming it as well as ChrisP had a camera on the action too.

It looked like Matt tapped Josh from behind and piled together right into the corner. Josh's car broke, most likely due to the fragile prototype parts on the car.

Eventually, the pack got going, but by that time Paul Lemieux had a commanding lead and that's all she wrote.

I would have been great to the the Kyosho prototype run the whole race. I watched the qualifying run on Saturday night that got Josh the 6th grid position in the A. It was planted, carried lots of speed and didn't push like other cars.

I really expected a lot more from you than a low shot like this which fuels people and their "adolescent comments"

Honestly after seeing this I am going to rethink my position on sponsoring Cleveland next year...maybe you can get your sponsors to write the check so it is all fair...

BTW...Nice clean pass on Blackstock in the 1/12th main or were you shaking so much you didnt see when you drove through the apex and ran him into the wall......

I dunno Hodge...looked like there was good contact going BOTH ways between Barry and DJ leading up to that point....

I'm kind of shocked at the tone of your comments...really out of character compared to how you normally represent yourself on here....
