amezcua and truhe are a-main contenders at just just about any level they race, not sure i would call them "B level guys".

congrats to all the winners, and thanks to the mag that sponsored our host moderators trip. i already have a subscription, and hearing that they do stuff like this only makes me want to support them more.

TRINITY (Ernie) has been called many things over the years, but HIGHER CLASS has never untill now been one of them.

I am glad to see Pudge back from the other side.

I was sorry to see Truhe leave to the other side. Orion/Peak sponsored him when he had no RESUME and no one else would even touch him. Just like they have done with so many drivers.

Who do you think was the first company to sponsor Brian Kinwald before he ever did anything.

They just have never had the money to throw at everyone like Trinity has. Now they can be more select because as you have seen at the last two HUGE on-road races they have what Trinity doesn't. HORSEPOWER! And unless your Barry Baker you will most likely not be able to win with out it at the World's.

Hey Hodapp, Hey Swanny

I've got the ROAR Nat pics I took online, kind of a "quirky" interface, all I have time to do right now, I'll code up a "slideshow viewer" and a paginator for the thumbnails. Also, still learning my new camera so don't be to critical of some of the pics!! Go to http://www.gearchart.com and click on Picture Galleries. FYI, the original images are 3008x2000 pixels and about 2.5 megs each!! ...I obviously resized them for the web!

I'm use my chime-in card.

For the people or "kids" that do this for a living in the end being paid more money is the key factor.

If any of you were offered (myself included) let's say twice what they make now 99.99% of us are packing their bags. Making money is the bottom line when you get to the point of being paid for a talent. It's why you'll see Basketball players leave teams...hey where did Shaq go? Once you achieve a certain level (NBA it's a ring...RC it's a Worlds) the money becomes the driving factor. And it's okay to admit it. Realistically, most people have a fixed time where they are valuable and it's best to try and do the best at that point. That's when you'll make the most of your talent and money. While I'm 100% against teams sponsor very young drivers, I can see why lots of people move around.

There's a saying

You want to make a lot of money you have to ruin your resume.

I bet there's a price for my man MF and MP.

1. I hope Cavelieri has a great lawyer. The little T should be breathing down his neck shortly. Cyrul happens to have all his bases covered and the little T should be squirming. But little T has always had money to waste. So the legal battle continues with Cyrul and Dieter is on deck, so is Lemioux, Spashett can't be touched and Ryan is the S.O.L.
2. Trinity drivers abandon a sinking ship due to poor management skills, bad communication and a lack of appreciation.
3. Ask J.Johnson, Niesinger, Doseck, Blackstock, Baker, Cyrul, Spashett, Lemioux, Dieter, Cavelieri, and a host of others and I am sure they will all say the money is not worth the grief. Joel didn't leave with a big party, he is only in hiding.
