Thumbs up Stolen buggy not found-but good friends keep me on the track

Last weekend my buggy was stolen,thought my buggy season was over as I had no way to replace but I have some great friends that I race with and ones Ive never met, but did not hesitate to lend a hand.Because of this I will be able to continue my race season.So I would Like to thank the following---

Travis4380-hyperc10-drpower-brianr34-kgombe-willbe and all who helped get the word out.

Thanks for reminding me why I love and am involved in this hobby!!!

Sincerly,Nick Lewis

If the other guys you mentioned are anything like kgombe, then they represent all that is good in this hobby. With people stealing stuff from each other, cheating to win a club race, and generally making this hobby not enjoyable, it's so great when you run across people like this. I've seen Kgombe (a very skilled driver who was usually in the A main) miss his own heats/finals to fix rookies' cars to make sure they didn't give up on the hobby. Completely selfless. In fact, he even did that from time to time for people that shouldn't still be called rookies... like me haha

Really great that they came together for you... and, the best part is, doesn't surprise me at all.

Great story and a very nice act of kindness If more people were like that it would be a better world not just a better hobby.. Sad when people steal things like that get a job losers ...
