That deal sounds really good and fair.
It's like basically $120 for the tires and $80 for the entrance fee
(Those Sorex tire sets are worth over $40 each)

I wish I was experienced in racing, I would sooooo enter.

I just sent this to Nick Daman from RC Racing, even if he doesn't some through oh well.
I'm a professional videographer and I'd be down to record the event in Hi-Definition

here's what i sent him:

Hey Nick,
My name is Michael from California, US

I was wondering if you would be able to cover the REEDY RACE OF CHAMPIONS 2009 at Roseville, Ca Speedworld Raceway.
www.speedworldraceway.com

If you would that'd be awesome!

Cheers!
-Michael

The reason there isn't a large herd of people rushing to sign up for the Reedy Race is because:

1. On-Road in general isn't that popular currently
2. The economy is down....very down...even down further from last year at this time.

Vader has spoken...again.

Signed,
Your Father

I come from carpet racing mainly... and they aren't legal there anymore. So I was just double checking.

To any Socal guys coming down for the warm up race please go to www.weather.com and type in zip code 95678. While it's still wet out right now it shows nice weather for tomorrow. I'll be there to sign autographs and make people laugh.....oh and I'll be winning 13.5 so if you're running mod you should be fine if Mo stays home Smack talk is all for fun so if you're taking this serious then maybe this race isn't for you Drive safe to anyone traveling to this event.
