The only thing that would help from a spectators point is better ventilation. Or hold it a little later in the year and do it outdoors. All in all it looked like you guys did put on a good event.

Interesting race. I would go again. Loved the track. it just didn't like me that much.

Some thoughts for improvements next year if you do it again. Better sound system or should I say a few more speakers so that the main ones don't have to be turned up to distortion level.

Little more room between pit road and the drivers stand, only need 6" to a foot more. (big boys passing zone)

Include a Tee shirt or cap with entry. Paying $60 per class I would think this should be included. Not having to buy one at additional expense just to get a shot at the raffle of a prize. Speaking of prizes, where were they?

Letting the track blow out added a lot of character to the race. I liked it. Easier on the track crew that way and its always the same track for everyone as it just keeps getting ruffer.

Do it again in 2009, just not on Super Bowl weekend.

I was more like a 1A high school football game. The SuperBowl is the Worlds. .

People weren't kidding when they said the track changed a lot. The cars are running much smoother than on some of the other videos that were posted.

Nice Video - thanks!

Geez, you guys are spoilt over there.

I live on the opposite side of the globe (Perth Australia)and since my brother saw the size of those jumps, he's already looking at plane tickets and accomidation for next year. He loves air and he's single If I mention anything to the misses like flying to the US for a race, my head will be still spinning My ears are sore enough, and I only race once a fortnight.

Maybe when my son or daughters are a bit older, I'll call it a father and son/daughter bonding holiday

Guys, that was the most exhausting fun I think I've ever had!! I got to meet alot of new people...and the same old yahoos I've been racing with for a while. I gotta thank my pit man Joe Ledbetter...I would have surely pulled out my hair if he hadn't been there to help me out. I learned alot about my buggy, and alot about engines(thanks to Maxy). Didn't do as well as I wanted but had a awesome weekend anyway.
