It would be nice to have some cameras over the parking lot now with monitor that everyone can see because this has gotten out of hand, the freakin crackheads from before when the junkyard was there now we have I think are spectators bringing lookouts on what they can grab and scoot out with before driver comes back, the hard part of this that you want to hepl a buddy pit for you and that already takes two away and when you know there's a good race then more leave the pits to watch. My thing now is you want to help when newbies comeby and ask but involves them in being in the pits and you feel proud when someone admires your stuff but what do we do to prevent this, do we have info pit passes into the pit area like the worlds, I would favor it so when some thing comes up missing you check camera along with driver's lic. info/pit pass that way it gives them a sense that they have onfo on them, the other thing I learned back in my clothing retail days is when a person comes into a store and you greet them they know you've made an eye to eye contact with them and if they were trying to lift something they know somone know what they look like. Sounds a lil silly to greet everyone that comes to the track but it would sure make them think.

Adam hope your ride comes back around somewhere along with others, I've been looking on Craigslist and E-bay just by chance and other should also they could be that stupid.

revelation needs to fence off the rear pit section and have drivers only in pit area. if everyone has to funnel through the gate, i think it would deter thief's.

Man I leave my $h!t all spread out under my tent. iphone in the bose dock, tools everywhere parts NIP in the roller bags 2 chargers on the table and usually 300-400 worth of lipo batteries charging or on the table. That just plain sucks I would be pissed if someone else stole from me at a race. I guess I need to be more cautious. Stealing is just plain wrong. I am the type that gives back change when the teller gives me too much...

They will get what is coming to them there is no way around it.

i agree with ya 100% Frank

i am pretty sure the thievery is coming from little punks that dont race but watch the races and want to race also .

i have no tolerance for thievery in any form , whether it be at the track or on the internet with customers or designs

we wanted this hobby to get bigger ???? be careful what you wish for , with more people involved there is more chance that there might be a few bad eggs out there

Just put up signs that say video monitored. You don't even have to buy a camera. The threat alone should scare off bums.

It would really be nice if there were some cameras around to catch someone in the act. Also Dana should only have the front parking lot gate open. That way no one is able to drive away behind the hobby shop. If something dose go missing and is reported in time, Dana will be able to control the traffic flow and could check exiting cars. There is no outside parking, so it could be feasible to control the flow of traffic.

I hope Adam's and Darren's stuff is found. It's sad that something like that happened to such cool guys. They never did anything wrong to deserve that.

You got that right but if they go there to rip you off, they are not going to leave empty handed....
