Man it would be sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet if we could just figure out this whole JLAP situation! Other then that, the race has run pretty smooth. The traction is SICK so a lot of people have spent the week scratching their heads. As you can see, all the normal names have been on top but the racing has been incredible. Tommorow will definetly been interesting, if we get the mains printed out.

Two new ideas for ROAR rules... No paragon and no JLAP. Then the races would really be awesome.

Bobby: Dang it! That was what was in the computer -- when I left the track a short while ago, they were on speaker phone with the JLap people, and it wasn't pretty. Thanks for pointing that out though.

Racing does begin at 9, although since nothing was run today, it will be a LONG day -- especially for me. It's an 8 hour drive and I have to be at work bright and early on Monday.

Anyway, not too much else to report, I do have a boat load of photos as always, and just haven't had a chance to do the race pages. The software is all on my main computer which is at the track, so I have to apologize for my shoddy work there.

I do want to commend the race crew for working their butts off at this race, even with the software problems. They are all sitting there right now trying to figure out how they are going to re-enter all 190 racers into a new event, since the database apparently corrupted or died or something. Hopefully they can figure it out and things will run smoothly tomorrow.

Ray Darroch ran the top time in 12th stock but is the 14th qualifier. Ammo for all of the Q points critics.

Tell them that it might not be to late to hire Doug from RCScoringPro to drive down. I'm sure they'd have to pay him quite a bit to drag him out of bed and make the drive for tomorrow, but it would be well worth it.

I guess it's a hard lesson learned for them.

They say that they asked Doug to come but he never followed up with them. So, who knows. I do sure wish he was here, though!
