So here is your report:

"well, got in about 97 hours of testing today, they set up the heats for the actual race order we will run and ran a practice round of heats.

some really fast guys showed up, picked up some really good info, travis s. is just amazing to watch, when live rc gets up you guys gotta watch the little s section on the front straight, as you straighten out theres a bump and mr. baker is up on two wheels, and no wheels everytime. on one of the 180 turns the mod guys are just lighting up the tires, sounds very cool, lots of big names, and some youv'e never heard of, but the boys down here know how to turn a wheel.

came to room to get cleaned up, everyones heading over to the 'ELECTRIC COWBOY' for some entertainment. Its ladies night, and locals say its a 10 to 1 ratio. (ladies to men) marge and I will be sitting in back watching to testosterone fest sippin on some JD.

weather wise, its 6pm here, partly couldy and 82 degrees"

Thanks Ritchie!!!!!!!!

Drew, as I said I meant no disrespect to you in my response. I just shared my opinion on a topic, much in the way you were doing. Was I harsh? Maybe, but damn after the day I had the last thing I wanted to see was this thread turning into the same shit that so many other threads fall into. (ROAR crap)

You and I have an opportunity to do alot of good promotion for this sport. This is something that can (could) be a great thing for years to come. As with most long term freindships, and business relationships, people cant and wont always agree on everything. There are ups and downs in everything.

I over it. Get well son.

Can we return to the regularly scheduled program now, please?
And this is what I hate most about these issues being taken into threads at random.

ROAR, please get a forum on the ROAR site.... Please!

Looks like the Nats got off to a great start and I'm glad to hear great participation with Baker, Burch, Paul L., Billy Easton, Howart, Cyrul and the other factory guys. It should be great for the guys attending not only to race but I'm sure they will get a kick out of the mod guys wheel

Thank Ritchie Reynolds, he's an ambassador to the sport!

People seem to forget that ROAR is for the average racer, they set the rules that even the pro races use.
The ROAR Nat's are for everyone to enter and most of them are club racers, that's where they get to show their talents off or just have fun and learn from the pro's.


So thanks for going to that huge amount of work to host the race and try to enjoy yourself.

Fred

PS: Ritchie, your the man on the street, and now you have to do daily reports!

AWD, Shack, and myself are having a good time. I dont think we are going to be setting any track records, but having a fun time. The track has a great layout and seem pretty fast to me. Traction is great with the VHT. Tire wear is better than what I thought it might be from what I have ran over the past months. All in all, I happy to be here and hanging out. Now we get to see it being put down in person and maybe in we get luck, we can put some rubber down with the fast guys.
