Awesome!!

All events this year were sell outs by the way Mr. Storti... with the exception of this one.

But, yes, we have a lot of work to do yet and we always learn from every event. This one taught us plenty and has given us much to consider for
2010.

yo who, over here, In the great state of Washington, known for its sunshine and high temps, we race march to october, only had one rain out this year, record turn outs, and even last weekend with temps at 62 degrees, track temp of 84, sucka$$ traction, we still had 48 entries.

I think turnout was down, and I'm glad I decided not to go, but not going kinda takes away my place in line to complain about turnout. and that goes double for guys that are giving a +1 about turnout that don't even race on road, but can't wait to take a shot at roar any chance they get.

I want to take this chance to thank everyone involved in making this race what it was, racers coordinators and staff, without all your support this could have been a flop. I'm sure HobbyTown appreciates all of you and what you have helped the track and the store accomplish for this race!

Again many thanks to all associated with the ROAR 2009 On Road Paved Nationals.

Sincerely,

I really didn't know what to expect for my first electric national and I'd like to say that it turned out to be a pretty cool event. ROAR did a good job, the facility was super clean, and the crowd was extremely helpful. Even though the turnout was low, the main winners would have been basically the same and the competition seemed really high.

Thanks to RC America and the whole XRAY crew for getting me up to speed. Also thanks to Reilly Paint for the 2nd place concourse body, Hanulec for the Tekin loan, and Drew, Paul, Robbie, Bowser, Mark and Haynes for the pit table antics.

no i think i mean, if you don't race on road and don't attend road events of any sort, then making a comment on turnout at a roar on road event is...... well you pick the word that fits best. And if this same person does nothing but complain about roar, no matter what the subject, well,..... once again you can finish the sentence

I don't know why I even bother.. but George, you are by far the strangest person I have ever not met. You don't even race on road..... you only find threads with ROAR in the title so you can condem.

Its not that you disagree with me.. I could care less.... but you make these wild comments that are completely baseless and unfactual and whats worse, YOU WON'T GO AWAY and leave serious conversations alone.

You have no idea about anything about ROAR because you refuse to learn.


and.... interesting YOU pick out that comment and direct it towards you... which means, YOU know your a pain in the arse of most everybody interested in doing whats right and you know you are wrong and objectionable.

Dude, just go away or stop harrassing those who really do put a lot of their time into this without asking for anything in return.......
