Thank you, thank you, thank you Rich Taylor and Team Taylor Racing crew!!! What an awesome facility and such a hard working crew!!! You guys rock!!!
I am so impressed with the racing at this event and the overall professionalism of these guys I had a great time (as the official, that is truly very rarely said!! LOL) and have a new appreciation for TOTAL PAVEMENT SPEED!!!!
(yes, I'm still an off road girl...
Regarding the live coverage: ROAR has contracted with LiveRC for every national this year with the exception of oval and 5th scale. (non RMT events) This event, neither Brandon nor Doug were able to attend for other reasons and there was no way I could manage the internet coverage while maintaining the program for those racers in attendance. There was so much going on and we ran things quickly each day. Live RC is awesome but in its infancy, it has a few glitches that only Doug or Brandon could or would be able to correct.... and I simply didn't have the time to work it and stay attached to the phone with Brandon.
Priority was and should always be.. the racers come first..... nothing else.
Regarding results: results will be posted on the ROAR website as soon as possible. In this day of electronic transfers... yes, we have them... and we will post ASAP.
Regarding my not posting as I stated I would: I do apologize
. I was not able to gain access to a computer with results as I thought I would be able to. And...... I was dead tired at the end of each day. 101 degree temps are not that bad.. I'm from Phoenix.. but I guess combined with an asphalt track, it didn't take much to zap the life out of me.
I tried to ensure racers were well taken care of.... water and shop towels to dunk in cold water for neck wraps.... we all suffered in the heat....
All in all, this race ran very well through the efforts of the host track crew and the racers.
Congrats Mark Sweeney in your Masters win and Joel Johnson for your Open win!!! I have NEVER been so glued to a track in my life!! Nothing was going to pull me away as I attempted but never succeeded in figuring out the strategies of these drivers.
