Jim was a great person. He fought through many battles but always had a smile and nice things to say.

I think the whole proceeds should have went to lung cancer foundation. Very grateful to all that showed up to show JT the respect that he deserved. With being said like dad said moment of silence would have been nice. Tq spot left open In all class out of respect would have been nice.
Thanks to srs crew for getting off-road track done it was fun.

And NO, this is not a sport in any way shape or form!!

I would agree with the above comments, it kinda felt like business as usual. Except new layout and a few comments made about Jim on the mic.

Just my thoughts, also was very, very rough getting home at 3:00 in the morning. Don't get me wrong it was great seeing the turnout. But a little more efficiency or time saving would have been appreciated.

Great racing on saturday!

New track is a pretty fast track, not too technical, but still fun to run.

Got home at 3am, but it was worth it :-D.

Good people, good times.

SRS is not moving to the east due to the fact that there is a HobbyTown USA located in the east already

The location of the new facility was based on two major things. What would be best for the Indoor Carting which we hope to be our big revenue source and the proximity to the other Hobbytown (Gilbert). With a Carting venue in Scottsdale Pavilions and Gilbert Hobbytown to the South the new location was a logical choice for us. It is in no way our intention to hurt other tracks in the area or put anyone out of business.

I hope to work with W3 not against. Keep in mind that I don't have final say as I am not the owner BUT If everything goes my way we will be club racing on different days that W3 to give racers an option to race almost every night of the week and hopefully grow RC racing in Phoenix.
