And this is relevant how? Who cares what the Hollywood dorks are doing? Sorry, I'm just tired of such a big deal being made out of what brand of toilet paper celebrities use...

People seek out others deemed cool in this hobby due to it's relative low amount of actual cool people otherwise.

Awwww... come on... we're pretty cool for a bunch of geeks playing with toy cars.

We're much cooler after the race, once we crack open a few beers.

Ha.. I think I saw you at the South Region race a couple of weeks back. My whole existence in this hobby revolves around drinking beer!

Oh, you probably noticed me then... have beer, will travel. Yes, I was there. I'll be in Bossier NEXT weekend for a Lousiana race (not RC Pro, just like to play on different tracks) and OKC for round 2...

And you obviously look NOTHING like your avatar... trust me, I would have noticed!

My truck is pretty hard to miss too:

I saw that truggy sitting in the back of a Toyota truck I think. I'm moving to Australia so my racing days @ N-Control are numbered. I didn't race the south region race, I rode my mountain bike out there for a couple of hours for the mains on Sunday. On Friday night I was running my electric buggy during practice. Electric guys get +20 minutes on the drivers stand, as opposed to 7-10 for nitro.. another reason to convert!

Yup, we came in a white Toyota extended cab truck... that's Ron Fleck's truck. (Jr. not Sr.) We pitted under the tree right by the driveway to the BMX track, so kinda by ourselves.

And I didn't see any hot Asian girls on mountain bikes! Like I said... I notice those things.

Default We be Jammin!!!

This was cool to do and I cant say enough about my dad's friend Paul he wants to really get up to speed and race,and he is a really normal person, he asked my dad to have me show him cars and get him up to date .I think this is just great for my sport ,we need hi profile people to race and the media will follow which makes better tracks and its all good! I would much rather watch this on ESPN than poker or pool.Its basic just show someone the right tools for the job and the work comes out better, thats all I'm doing. God Bless
