You probably can't see 11 & 13 because there are no pictures on them yet.

I think he was just simply making an observation. I don't think he was trying to put the A main guys down.

the guys that didnt make the main didnt pack teir stuff up a few of them over slept
mo denton missed the a main because some people thought that all the A mains were to be run together at the end so he didnt charge in time.
as far as the others who know.s

Default I saw The Man !

This was the first national level race i've been too and it was a thrill. Walking into the place to see all the faces that i know from the mags.Seeing the skill that they have on the track,wow how i would like to be able to make consisent laps like them.My son was not as thrilled being only 5 he is just taking to r/c. Just as all the excitment level in me was leveling off i see him! Giddy as a school boy ,i can't beleive who i am looking at. Walking with his hands in his pockets he looks so much like just another guy,but he is" The Man" . I have to turn to him and can almost not get words out. I have to shake your hand its people like you that make this such a great hobbie . My day is made i can leave now all else is is just plain RC stuff. I met and shook hands with Mr Mike Reedy!!!! I've got to go back i've got the erge to race something!!!!!!
by the way i'm 45 years old

Man Steve, I saw the results and you were on the cusp of makin the A in both your classes and then had a real photo finish in the B in one of them! I see you as a real threat at the Carpet Nationals come next month.

Im really hoping to go to that (I should be able to sacrifice the absences for my classes)

What an event! Great coverage Futureal!
Some great (and competitive) racing in every single class.

Must congratulate 19 year old ADAM BROWN for his win in 4-Cell Stock (OVAL) class and for his TQ qualifying round. What a nice, gracious and talented racer.

I sure look forward to racing again next year and with all I learned about carpet oval racing this year am confident I will do better!

Congratulations to the Snowbirds crew and all of the competitors!

Bob

Corey, Shane is on the road coming back so we might have to wait a couple of extra days. Personally, I am as anxious as you are to see some pictures.

Yeah that was weird. So weird that I deleted it. People probably think I don't know how to use a pc.
