Yes, I am. I have some of the stuff ready to go but not the pics. Sadly, JLap is not capable of outputting the results in a readable format that I can put up on the web, and I just didn't have the time to sit there and enter everything. I made some mistakes as far as time management at this race (e.g., by racing... haha), but if the software can't give me results, there's not much else I can do.

The magazine print deadline is just around the corner and I have to turn in my coverage article ASAP as well (which means you guys will get to read about this race in Xtreme R/C in less than a month!).

The BIG SHOW is on tap in just a couple of minutes, the final Stock TC race where everything's up for grabs. The webcam is tuned to the race screen for those who are interested. Once again, the URL: http://www.rctech.net/webcam.shtml

And more thanks to Avid R/C, Hurricane Motorsports and XRC for helping out with all of this. I can't thank David at Avid enough for hosting the cam. We'll try and do something even better at the Paved Nats.

As for the fights, suffice it to say there has been some VERY bad behavior from a lot of top drivers at this race. And I won't even talk about a certain well known driver from trying to run someone elses car in a lower main...

Shane, I sure hope you got a picture of Jared in the superman getup!!! I'm sure alot of FL people would pay to see that!!

Looks like Stock TC is a real barnstormer!

And I should note that I could write a book about drivers behaving poorly and showing tons of unsportsmanlike behavior. There have been few races that have been free of accusations and screaming and cursing from some of the best drivers in the business, stock and mod. It's disgraceful.

If you make it out to the on-rad nat's you will have some help. I bring my laptop and help you out with the race.
