Well, that's highly debatable. After watching the video many times, and still not being totally sure where the finish line is (how can the finish line be so VAGUE at such a large event?), unless the line is at the beginning of the corner leading to the straight, one car lead all the way down the back straight, and it wasn't Orr.

Either way, to have a whole week's worth of racing come down to a few inches is absolutely amazing. Great show. Massive props to both winners in 12th Mod.

Not to get in the debate too much,but, on NASCAR race cars the transponder is located on the right rear frame rail. but they use the nose of the car for photo finishes.

I say all ties in racing should now be settled in the parking lot after the race or on the track "Battle Bot" style.....

a couple years ago, in the good ole rack em up stock touring(less racing, more fun). If the race was tied, since we had hand counters(tallys), most guys would just settle it, battle bot, first to brake, or run batties, lost. I ended up buying one of those cars after a battle too, hehe, a tc3. Sold that quickly, raced it once as a backup.

Kick A$$ job Nash!!!!! Those numbers a freakin sweet!!!!!!!!



Congrats should go to both, an 8 minute race that comes down to .04????? That is unreal. I was just fortunate to be right there to watch the whole thing. But, I beleive that no matter who it looks like was in front..... Live by the transponder.....Die by the transponder.

for everybody going to my site getting a 403 forbidden error, this is the response from my hosting company
Hi Robert

As you know your site very popular right now. When your traffic levels reach
a point where they start degrading the performance level of the server we
are forced to disable your web site until traffic and performance levels
return to normal.

Don't know how much you pay per month, but I use FutureQuest.net on all of my clients and all of my own websites. My main site (ApexSpeed.com) pulled almost 19 GIGS of bandwidth this month alone... no problems at all. I think they have a bare bones package, too.

HTH,
