Thank you James, that would be really helpful.

Back on topic, a friend of mine had a situation where his rc's fell off his truck. He contacted his insurance and they did not cover it, but they told him if his rc's would've been stolen from his truck they would've been covered. If they were in the trunk of your car or if you were unloading when this happened maybe you could contact your insurance and see if they can help you out?

Ok to all the hispanic comment was wrong, now drop it. We are here to help Greg his buddy and even the other guy(not sure who he is) not to get the thread locked because of 1 comment that was a bit overboard so can we drop it and pay attention to what is really wrong and why this topic was posted!

With all that has been said we should take action on this BS.

RC tracks should have an outsourced security company that they use during big events to watch over the pits and the pit tables.

I for one would pay an extra $5.00 to $10.00 to attend a big race that had 3 or 4 guards walking around in uniform.

We should all think about building a secured fence and gating in and around the pit tables where there is only one way in and one way out. A guard could stand at the gate to ensure all is well.

Something has to be done about this. Nearly every person that is racing has well over $2000 worth of stuff that could go bye bye in just a few seconds. This type of BS has left a very sour taste in my mouth.

Greg and Marcus get the race set up and we will be there to support you guys so that you can get back in the action. Let's get some 2 or 3 cash raffles going during the race.

When I get that all planned I am sure we will run 50/50 raffles and stuff. I am looking for some pics. Kinda hard to take them now that its gone. I know they are in the podium pics from the Alabama race for sportsman buggy and truck. Otherwise I'm sure someone has a pic I will hunt it down.

I hate to ask people to go into their pockets on this. I am hoping we can have a race and raffles where people are coming out to have fun and have a chance to get something for their time and money. If you are very fortunate and wish to help though my paypal is PBfrontman03@aol.com I will split anything we get with Marcus. Thanks to everyone for the support.

This really hit a nerve as I've personally been "racially profiled" and have been arrested in front of my kids, family, and friends, because I supposedly looked like another Mexican who had committed a crime the night before in a city of 2+ million. I had to wait for 2 hours in a cop car until a teller I.D.'d me and said "not even close". By the way I was born in the US and am excercising my freedom of speech... Sorry for being off topic, but I couldn't stay quiet.
Cool I'm exercising my right.... WHO CARES
