Mike, Just when I have all but talked myself out of E-Scale, you offer me a chance to get some of your hard earned money.

My plan is to spark interest in the class. I've only put two race weekends on mine and I've had fun learning and adjusting. I know everyone has their preference, but maybe there are those who haven't tried it yet. So the offer of a cash payout stands as long as we get 5 entries. If we get six or more I will sit out and everyone in the top 4 will take some of my money!
I really do think that people who are curious enough to take the plunge will be happy racing an electric and stick with it

I will have to clear this with Rob. The only thing I require is that we would have at least 5 entries.

Have at it Mike, I will provide the venue. Good luck to all the E-Scalers.

Let me know of a date and I will add it to the calendar.

I love challenges.

Thank you for the kind words Michelle! It's nice to know that you would return the "friendly" offering after I've looked through your Beastiality addiction. Although disturbing, I'm not going to judge you because you like farm animals!

I agree with the second post as well but also know that I do not condone the fact that you'll take somebody out for a position! Just a couple of suggestions here:

1: Announce at the beginning of each race you attend that your not there to make friends!

2: Paint your car "Back Marker Orange/Red" so fellow racers know to avoid you on the track!

3: Offer people money to race your class to give them false hope of winning cash, but HACK them on the last lap and take the money you offered!

4: Take me with you when traveling! Trust me, you would never have to listen to SHIT like that!

Rob may need to split things up a little more this year...competitive, fair, and humble class and straight up gangster class.

Hopefully we can have a drivers meeting every raceday and go over drivers etiquette (I think that's how it's spelled).
