I used a regular Mazda 6. I was going to try a Mazda speed 6 or a Parma M but my LHS didn't have either in stock, so the 6 it was. This was for rubber touring.

Hope everyone made it home safe and sound. This had to be the best 'birds yet! I can't remember races being so close and exciting. The mains were absolutely amazing. We will have some audio of them on-line and hope there will be some videos of them on-line soon. Of course Mike from Steel City has all the mains on DVD coming out soon. Thank you everyone and a huge thank you to all the TRC Thunder Race Crew guys and girls. Thanks to Tony Padilla, he was our photo man and there will be 1000s of pics on soon!!

I really had a awesome time and am sad it is over. Thank you again for all your support racers and a huge thanks to all our sponsors, and to Trinity for taking the chance 7 years ago and helping me get it started.

Mike

Just got home after driving all day!! I cant believe its already over. It seems like this race comes and goes faster than any other...it must be because there's so much non stop action!!

A big Thank You to Mike Boylan and his Crew for the best track ever!! Excellent layout, awesome sub-floor and allowing us to use Tire Compound that actually works !!

I liked the B-main bump ups as well. It added a lot of excitement to the racing...Maybe next year lock in 10 for the A main and bump the winner of the B up for an 11th mixer in the pack!! That would be awesome!! I think overall this year was some of the cleanest mains I have seen....Heat races were a different story though

Thanks to Trinity for being the major sponsor of this racing and getting it going years ago as Mike said!!
