Oh yeah, Shawn, thanks for everything you have accomplished, as it benefits so many more than a bunch of guys with toy cars. It has created a very cool and close group of friends, in this world today friends are a valuable and cherished gift. I think that another great side effect is that you have a home now, and that thoughts we discussed a year ago are coming to fruition. I thank you Shawn, but more than that, I am glad that you now can plant roots and relax a bit knowing you are well on your way to your vision, and you have a group of friends that will help you anytime, and anyway they can.

Eric and Tyler, I thank you for years of friendship, and years of feeding one of my favorite addictions. Playing with really cool toys!!!!!!! On a really cool track that owes it's true identity to you two, and all that were there to help, here is the part of my job that I hate, I haven't been able to be there as much as I would like. I know from the first couple of years I was able to help how much work it takes.. Eric, Tyler, Thanks!!!!

Brexton, Brian, Dan, Ed, Ethan, Jim, Jon, Ken, Matt, Rich, Tim, and associated family members, I can't wait to get up to Rt 281 and see you all...(I tried to mention everyone I could think of, alphabetically so I didn't get hassled about the order) If I forgot to mention you, I obviously haven't wrecked you, See you all soon...

Awsome day. Really liked track set up. Had a blast even with all the carnage, some day when I learn how to stay on the track and my wheels will be that much better.. Any how thanks everybody for a great year and I will see everybody out there next year if not before.....

First i want to say Bruce Thanks. I consider you a good friend and i am so glad you got some much need "work R&R" in.


For those that made it out yesterday I hope you had Fun. I again had other commitments and then worse Headache ever.

I have learned alot this year about the track how it can run better and worse. I had some time to step back from it (thanks Eric and Tyler) and to see it from another perspective.

I want to thank everyone for all you do! It really helps to have racers that take ownership in the track.

And i have to say that Eric and Tyler Herwig made this happen this year!
I just had too much on my plate.

I will make sure in 2014, we will have a lot of the hiccups fixed!

this year ends our offical second racing year,

My plans for next year are simple but should be very effective.

1) Solid Schedule ( Every other week) Next week left for rain dates
2) Points Schedule that is spread out further to allow more racers to participate
3) Larger Races Scheduled and held too. ( Fathers Day Race, Championship Race, And the Poker Race and Money Race) will all be announced in the beginning of the year with no change
4) Basic Parts stocked at the track.
5) Grilled Food and Drinks ( i will use my family)
6) 12:00 Noon Start times.
7) All Awards will be finished in the spring! this awards problem is not funny! Also since we are working on the schedule early, we plan on gaining the support of the rc companies as sponsors and door prizes.

that's about it for now,

Again thanks for everything.

Troy, you have some of the most entertaining/dangerous wrecks we have ever seen yesterday (tree, loop disaster, back stretch with Jim J.) Please correct me if wrong & it was your partner in crime LOL!!! Thanks for everything!!!

Brexton racing Ken in last heat dragging his body sideways on final lap!!!

Steve Kirk landing his truggy over the back fence off vert wall!!! Thank you Tim for retrieving!! I wasn't venturing back from gate area in shorts??!! Not sure what lives back there LOL!!!

Justin for perfectly QUADING the front doubles the last heat of ebuggy!!! That was my thought for when I added the ramp over wood wall!!

To everyone that made yesterday possible, THANK YOU for allowing me to add some new twists to RC Racing!!! But honestly, I am ready for my hibernation from track maintenance, lugging all computer components, & feeding you knuckleheads LOL!! Alot of stress goes into help running a track & my hat goes off to all owners of tracks all around.

To Brian, you did a great job in the booth yesterday!!! Wish I could call races like you & Tyler, but kinda like to be the silent partner.

I'll make it out to watch my "GOOD FRIENDS" race some indoor tracks this winter.

Great job yesteday Eric. Plenty of exciting racing, good food, lots of good humor and frienship all around. One of the best times I had all year! Wish the crowd would have been a little larger but I'll take it. Had a blast!
Thanks

Had a great time on Saturday, thanks to Eric and everyone who made it out.

Hope to see you all again next year...I'll be at Bumps and Jumps in the fall/winter/spring indoor season for their points races. If you make it down look me up.

It was too wet this afternoon, big puddles and wet. If anyone is going tomorrow, please let us know if the track dried any. Also, Tuesday looks good if anyone wants to play.
