What an amazing race. 360 rocks the casba like no other. Sal, Donny, Mike, Dave, Alex and the rest of the 360 crew did a great job and represented very well! Thanks so much for having us all down.

Unfortunately, I got wicked sick on the third day and just could not drive. Pooping or puking on the stand would probably not be appreciated.

It was a real shame too, because Bruce Carboni / SpeedMerchant handed me the single best driving 1/12th I've ever laid my clumsy hands on. I don't know what I did to get him to hook me up like that, but I'll be driving my fingers to the nub to get good enough to make it worth while. Thanks again Bruce, truly and outstanding machine.


Ralph/Bill, you guys are awesome. Thanks for pitting with me,Sammy and George, it was such a great time. All the 360 Locals were as cool as ever and seeing faces from the previous series was great! Lots of fun, tons of laughs and just an overall great time.

Again, great time, great people and amazing racing!

thanks again!

Good time this weekend with exception to my marshalling when I destroyed Larry sedan...again sorry hope the new tires made up for it.

Nice to make both rubber and 1/12 a mains being waaaaaaaaaaaay off the pace...just lucked out with a couple of early really clean slow but consistent runs.

Casey feel better...although it would have been funny(and yet disturbing) if you booted on the stand and kept driving like you joked about.

Nice to catch up with all racers in the extended area.

Traction rolling in rubber tires...good times Gotta work on that.

Catch you at the next one.

Cheers,

Jamie

Thanks to the whole 360 crew for a great time. I was really excited about seeing your facility, and it was everything I had hoped for. I even heard one racer say that we should use the industrial washtubs as a man trough, to make it feel even more like our beloved Gate.

Also thanks to Mrs. Haynes for the recommendation on Smokin' Al's BBQ for dinner Friday night. All involved were extremely happy with the copious amounts of sweet, meaty goodness. And Dayger wasn't even there.

Sorry again that I couldn't stick around for Q4 and the mains on Sunday. We'll, not TOO sorry. After all, this happened directly in front of my seats:



We'll be seeing everyone in Maryland for the next one!
