Yes that was a great job on cleaning the entire left side off your truck... Man next time lift. Chris Crews said that was like a Indy 500 wreck with parts flying..."Lift Driver,Lift!!!"

Man next time stop by in the am for the blue pill special and maybe ya can make it to the end...

Great Job making the A main out there in 1/10 nitro...

Well that definitely was a FUN weekend! Well I thought my car would of been better in my 4th 19 turn qualifier but it wasent by much. I improved my time by like half a second or so I still sat 4th on the grid. Jeff was able to qualify 2nd and finish 2nd, Rob started 5th behind me but he broke early on in the run. In the main I had a rough go from lap one. I started in the back built my way up and once I'd get up there I'd go back down type of thing. Anyways I ended up 5th.

In Mod Touring I bettered my TQ by quite a bit with an experimental setup. It worked out pretty good for me too! In the main I led from lap one and took home the win! The car was awesome and I just drove a very steady and consistent race. I also ran my eXpress Komodo 19 turn in mod as well just because the tracks smaller and tight and it's hard to wheel a mod around it. I tried a 12x2 and it was still way to much to handle. It was faster on the straight obviously but not in the infield. What I gained on the straight was lost in the infield so I just decided to stay with my Komodo because I can stay consistent with it.

In stock touring Jeff Beaule started 2nd and Rob Say 4th. Jeff had a very rough start and I think was last by the end of the first lap but pulled it back up to 3rd place finish. I think Jeff also had the fastest lap in stock with an 8.0 in stock but I can't confirm this. Rob ran pretty well and drove to 4th place fininsh! Way to go guys! I kind of wish I ran stock now but I had my hands full with 19 turn and mod!

I didn't watch too much 12th scale but I did watch the A main. I know Rob started 2nd and finished 2nd behind Mr.Wayne Vince (thanks for the motor can zap wayne).

I'm sorry I didnít get into "more" details, I am very tired right now. Here is a picture of me having a little celebratory drink with my trophy when I got home LOL Also included pics of Jeff, Rob and myself with our hardware from the weekend of racing and our podium pictures. I will get some more pics up as soon as they are sent to me...

Thanks John!

Well you just might see me again! At this race I was lucky enough to win some Detroit Pistons tickets in the raffle that are worth a lot of money! I have them up for sale and depending on how much I get for them I MIGHT go to the gate race or the P.O.R.C race you told us about...or might look into a new 8th scale buggy for this season. Decisions Decisions!
