Well be proud of what u pulled off mr Casey. Regardless of what you did racing wise here and in future. u can always look back and say the track i managed did a national. whether u stop RC in 20yrs or next wk. So how long is the C closed for 'recovery'?

I also request comments disrespecting the effort of those who did attend and worked very hard for their positions, stop? That simply is not fair as... well, where were you, without the excuses?

Thank you Dawn and Casey for putting the date question closed.

Thanks to the RMT for running this event, a couple of minor issues that were handled quickly and quietly. Congrats to all the racers who showed up, I hope you-all left with with good experience racing at the C. We locals really tried hard to make this an good event and that it will not be the last time you come and race with us again.


To those who came thank you, for those who chose not to... too bad, you missed a good race...

Hmm...for a representative of both TOP and Epic, that is a very CLASSLESS thing to say. The racers who made it to the A-Main deserved to be there. They EARNED it. So what if other pros did not make it..their loss. It is so easy to blame and point fingers, but as it stands, this IS a Roar national event and the ones who won are ROAR National Champions. Don't hate. It's a shame a company representative is less than professional on this matter and has to post this for the world to see. I really hope this isn't a representation of the companies you race for...cuz if it is, im NOT a fan.

That's not a very good attitude for a rep to display at all.

Congrats to all the winners at the Nats. Don't let a few poor sports sour your experience.

Big congratulations to all the participants and especially the winners. The racing looked very courteous and ultra competitive. But in the end, it was a XRAY weekend.
XRAY - 1st Place MOD TC
XRAY - 1st Place Super Stock TC

Interviewer: Hey Robbie...now that you just won the ROAR Nat 2009 Super Stock Championship... what now?

Robbie: I am going to Disney World.

Default Wow!

Over 24 hours later and I'm still at a loss for words!

I cannot say thanks enough to everyone that has helped and supported me over the past few years, and including this past weekend.

Thanks first and foremost to ROAR and HobbyTown USA, "The Coliseum" for holding and hosting the event!

Thanks to all of my sponsors, RC America/Xray/Hudy, Express Motorsports, Jaco, SMC, Tekin, MW Designs, 5-Nines Consulting and Sheckells & Sons Construction for all of the support and excellent products! Ralph Burch, Paul Lemieux and Drew Ellis for all of the setup advice that helped me dial in my T2 '009. John Tag, Jason Schreffler and Randy Pike for all of the expert advice on tuning my Express-tuned Duo and Tekin RS which provided insane horsepower. Mike Webb, thanks as always for the rad paintjobs!

Also I'd like to give a shout out to Mike Hanulec for the topdeck that he gave me Thursday night that kept me running after wadding up the car in practice. Without your generosity, I may have ended up spectating instead of racing.

Hope to see everyone again at the Halloween Classic!
