Congratulations for the good racing Dakotah
This guy has alot of dedication and now is showing all the hard work he has done is paying off
I remember last year I needed some help with the gearing in a losi in 10.5. His mom would show me the temps of the esc and motor at that specific gear
It just shows how dedicated the whole family is in racing and how accomodating they are with other people
congratulations again

I too am amazed and disappointed that there were no trophies at all in anything but the A mains. And even there, only the top three & TQ. Finish 11th out of 50 (Win the B.) and get -- nothing???

Why race toy cars for bowling trophies when there are no bowling trophies?

Terribly cheap and insensitive. Exact opposite of what any good race is supposed to be about.

I don't get why you think there needs to be a throphy for guy's in the B-main just because they won it, when there isn't anything for the rest of the guy's in the A-main.

Really the way I see it, in racing only the top guy's that day get the prizes and everyone else goes home happy or they don't. Racing is about who is the fastest, and the fastes are the ones who get the prize. Based on your logic the guy who lost the most spots should get somthing, or even if you stay on the lead lap you should get somthing.

If you win the B main that means you were 11th best that race weekend. If you get 11th out of 40 at the Daytona 500 what do you get?
If you get 11th out of 20 at a Supercross race what do you get?

as a spectator not a racer, i found the event to be top notch,

my only sugeston would be to have a more controlled practice, on the two days before the event, example would be like the system used at the RROC, practice times are set up just like the heats, this would allow a more equel practice, on Thursday for example, a few racers had there family standing inline, mom, dad, sister, brother, girlfriend...etc i feel that the racer should be the one standing inline,

just my opinion...


looking forward to attending next year

LOL comparing toy car racing to something like NASCAR and Supercross. Yeah I can see how they are incredible similar.

About $515,000 for 11th at the Daytona 500 lol.

Wow that is pretty sad. My local track has at least trophies or plaques for the 1st 3 in the lower mains for a race that large as they has 350 plus for their dirt oval race. Its not much but it is nice to know their are more racers than just the top 10!!!!!!!!!!!

Still think the track layout looked very challenging. Really like that over/under jump.
