Yes Ben it was a great weekend at a nice facility. Met alot of great people and some great drivers. That stock truck race,,man it was a good one. Everyone needs to go next weekend for a huge turnout. Thanks to Jarman and Tony and everyone for the great hospitality. I think I can speak for everyone from Reo Raceway that came, and say we will defenitly be back in the future.

All that excitement for this race and ESC issues? He must be heart-broken.

No interviews or exciting race/breakage footage?

Definately Had a Blast Yesterday!!!!!!!! And first off I want to give a big Thanks to Hobbs for loaning my a turn buckle. 2mins. into the first Qual I broke a Lunsford turn buckle and the shop didn't have one that small. If it wasn't for Hobbs giving a complete stranger/rookie a helping hand I would have went home with only 2 mins of track time under my belt.

Thanks again Hobbs!!!!!!!

And thanks Shieldsmith for the gearing setup!!!!

I will definately be coming back for more!!!!!!!!!

It was a good thing he didn't race or nobody would have had a chance of winning the Mod 4WD class, the winner of 4WD should be greatfull.

Believe it or not, he actually isnt THAT bad on the track (in terms of taking you out) - he does a decent job of getting out of the way when the front of the pack comes steam rolling by (this has just been my limited experience on the track w/ him).
