Why so few touring cars? And the low turn out? Has the crappy ecconomy hit everyone that hard or is it something else? I know that I would have a tough time making all the big races if I were still in it. Also looks like a number of the factory teams are missing which indicates lower travel budgets this year.

Would still like to be there though. Nothing like waking up after 4-5 hours of sleep to a Paragon headache!

Also, I hear that the Stock and Masters classes are bring your own brushless motors. Will this end up giving a few an unfair advantage or are the brushless motors all that close to each other where it won't matter?

Hey Rick. I didn't see your name on the list this year either. Life is treating me pretty good. Business is the best it's been in 10 years for some weird reason. Almost feel guilty saying that considering the tough times a lot of others are having.

I haven't been to Cleveland since 2004. My last race was IIC at Vegas in 2006. After that race, I sold everything I had except my solder gun. My youngest son (17) and I are racing TAG karts. We run down in your area (Pevely) once a year. We should be there Sept 19,20 this coming summer. I see Skip & Jimmy etc are still going. Glad to see your business is doing well. Nice to hear from you. Later.

(click on photos page, then click on Pevely and look for the two blue karts #7,24. My son is #7 and I'm #24.

What business are you in Steve? Are you looking for people? Did I mention I work for General Motors? LOL
Hope to see you at a race again sometime.

replacement of 10.5 with 13.5 seems to be a good fit

17.5 top 5 = 47-48 laps
13.5 top 5 = 50 laps
mod top 5 = 52-53 laps

Looks like a nice even seperation
