youre an as$hole and don't deserve to be part of this hobby. Shut up and leave right now. I bet you live with your mom and just troll forums all day long. You truly don't understand that this is more than just a hobby to some racers out there.

Come on everyone.....lets be nice to each other....everyone has an opinion..and some people have too much internet courage!

I really do appreciate all the kind words that have been spoken and believe it or not I can take the critisisim also...There is so much people dont know about this situation.....

I will try to move forward and hopefully stay in the industry...I really do feel that I can make a difference to a company out there.Weather it is racing or behind a desk....Knowledge and Experience is the key!

Thanks,

Barry

Right on Barry! Met you at the 'birds a couple years back, I think. Was usually drinking between rounds ha! You are a true class act even though you've had your blowups, but that is just the nature of competition. Still chuckle about your discussion with Kinwald one year about which wall would be the "racing line" Best of luck at whatever venture you choose, you'll truly be an asset.

Sorry to hear this has happenned Barry.

Not too sure what happened but I wish you well. I believe you really would have put TM on the map with all their cars.......but alas.
What will be will be.

I guess this wasn't meant to be and your destined for better things sir.

All the best.

"Where one door closes another one opens" so the phrase goes...

I hope it opens soon for you.

I have met Barry a few times and I must say, he was not only was he professional he was also very helpfull.
We have had a few pro drivers come out to one of our races at Fastcats, and Barry was one of the best. I look forward to seing him come back to Toronto with a top outfit.

Barry goodluck, I'm sure you will find a new ride.

Good luck Barry and all other factory drivers of any make for that matter.

With the state of economy and this industry being a fringe entertainment market I can imagine most of the factories are feeling the pinch of we hobbyists, racers and wrenchers tightening our belts just to buy gas to get to the track. I do not know or understand the Team Magic issues, but know they make quality stuff and your are one of the best in the business. It would have been great if they could have kept you employed. For your sake, I hope the economy gets stronger, the business gets better and you can stay pro somewhere. I will miss the useful input on my E4 chassis though. God Bless the factory drivers.

John
