Is this a good time to complain about changing the one and done rule for classes that didn't have two full heats. Because of that I had way too much fun and that's B.S.

Come on out for the Timezone Grand Prix in November! Scotty comes out to run the race and you don't have to spend hours in pre-tech lines . I know Paulie and Hebert will be there again, should be an even bigger event this year!

Wow, that was a great time even if Josh kicked our butt in pan cars. I tried the break check move and he still TQ'ed. He's just that good. CEFX will soon be releasing wheelie bars for 12 mod cars! I have now witnessed a car with way too much power capable of completely looping out on the tone. That was awesome! In all fairness, Mike was hauling and Josh still tracked him down for a W. Josh's WGT was ridiculous.

Mark, I hope that you are not tired of hearing that you did a wonderful job on the facility. You orchestrated the TZ crew into the finest around. Round of applause.

I want to thank CRC for their continued support of my RC habit. We missed having Uncle Frank with us, but from all the texts that were coming in.... it was like he was there. Dumper has his incoming text tone set as: mail m... f... I was quite amused all day. Brian had to run the team, deal with product, deal with rules, and deal with cars and equipment that didn't cooperate back. That made for tough event but he still remained very upbeat. No doubt I was impressed with Andrew Knapp's performance. He truly was too fast for me to catch. Dave Ehrlich was the only other driver close to Josh's wgt time and his 2nd place is way better then my 8th. I had some tough racing this weekend and really had to dig to make results. After the dust has settled, I feel like I was just starting to figure it out. It's too late now, everyone has gone home. I had a great time, but now it's time to go fishing or go hunting for Sasquatch.

It was so great to see all the out of towners come up and run cars for a few days: Still Bill, Tim, Paul, Josh, Dumper, Max, Andrew, Drew (comic relief), the Canadian Contingent: Blake, Mike, Keith, Nospoon, Team N. Dakota: Tyler & Randy...... so glad all you guys made the effort to attend.

Brian

You're just forcing Ritchie to relive the moment huh? LMAO

AWESOME EVENT! Other than the massively long waits in tech... it was an awesome weekend. Mark, Rick, Richard, and the whole TZ crew did an awesome job as always. Always a pleasure to race with you guys. Congrats to all the winners.

Next up... The Reedy Race

A typical driver racing for 2 years, including when I first started, dont have the car control or race experience to make ALL the right calls. Hell, I didnt make my first A-main till 4 years in! Some people expect Andrew to drive like Keven Hebert or Paul Lemieux, it just isnt possible yet. These are not excuses, these are facts.
Corey,
I do not by no means wanna be in the middle of this, but just wanted to say VERY WELL SAID about talent versus experience. As a father of another great and young "10 years old" up and coming driver we have been put into this situation many times our selves. I pray Andrew just keeps his head up and uses all this as a learning curve good and bad. I know its hard as a racer when you get passed and peeled it sucks and I feel sometimes veteran racer take it harder when its done by a 10 or 12 year old. Sometimes it makes me wonder why I allow my son to race and possibly put himself in that situation. We all had to start some were and at some age. We need more kids like Andrew and my son Blake to help this hobby/sport survive.
