I witnessed first hand many frustrated racers and turn marshals. One-run bodies are just plain bad for racing, bad for the sport and bad for the industry.
In defense to Parma (the ones who make the leight weights), I saw many DNA's also body tucking, as well as cars body tucking in rubber classdes with the Mazda 6's. I don't have any affiliation with Parma or Protoform, but it seems like you were calling out the "other" bodies.

The leightweight may have a tendency to cave in a little more, but I see too many people tucking that simply cut out the bare minimum so they can have that picture perfect "look" of smaller wheel wells. If cars would just cut out another 1/8in of clearance it wouldn't be as big of a problem.

Derek;

I stand corrected. Guess I was just thinking about all those Reedy Race runner-ups Jilles seems to have had in California.
Senility is a bummer though regardless - lol!

I know I'm three days late. but I really would like to thank all the people that helped put this race on. It was a great show and alot of work went into it.
To all the sponcors I also thank you.
To all the racers and fans that that were there and again I say Thank you.
For those of you who could not make it. I hope you enjoyed listening in.
I got a lot of Phone calls from racers that cound not make it, but will be there next year.

This year was like a big Family Party and a race broke out.

Saw some friends I haven't seen in years and made some new for a lifetime.

Great racing and I hope a great time by all.

Hope to see everyone soon at a race track near you.

PS. "Vicky, Yes, Smaka got Lucky we'll see him in the outfit next year even if I have to come out of retirement to do it" heheheheehe

I just did a "who got screwed" sidebar for the coverage and more people were "screwed" than not.

10 screwed, 6 Virgin

C'mon people.

I admit that I was weirded out and certainly disagree with the person in the photo's choice.

However, making a joke about the person publicly on the forum isn't right. Leave em alone.

Now making fun of Butter at his own expense is just plain OK.
