What an incredible weekend of racing. This event had it all - close competition on the track, plenty of entertainment in the pit area (thanks for all of the laughs, fellow racers), and bouts with mother nature as she rained on our parade not once, but twice... Despite the evil weather, we managed to pull together and get the event in the books...

Special thanks to Al and Greg for coordinating track prep for an event of this magnitude, and to all of the volunteers that gave their time to prepare the track for this weekend. The RMT did an amazing job keeping things runnung smoothly, despite the mutiple challenges they faced - great job, guys... Last but not least, I offer thanks to all of the racers that decided to stick it out after the massive rainstorm Friday night. Considering that many racers suffered heavy losses during the storm, it was quite encouraging to see that everyone did whey could to continue once the weather was no longer a factor.

Congratulations to all of the newly crowned champions - given the caliber of competition participating in each class, you've earned that honor.

Great event !!! Guys remember , if you are filming a main , follow the cars ,not the asphalt , not the bald headed guy ,and not one corner of the race track !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Filming did not live up to its potential at all this year !!!!! What's up with the zooming camera features ?????? Don't film one car and watch another car at the same time !!! Pay attention to what you are doing or you will taint the event !!!!! The organizers should require all cameramen to get a $30 filming course with final editing before any footage show up on youtube !!!

Sarcasm there? LOL

Hats off to you and AL for the awesome facility you guys have and getting everything organized as well as you did. One of the best run ROAR races and best tracks I have been too. Its all because of the hard work you put into it before the race!

Ha! Want me to spell it out for you?

Thanks for the kind words. Lots of people put their time and effort into this facility and this event, too numerous to list for sure, but appreciated nonetheless by me, Al, and the racers who enjoy it every weekend ....except next weekend, we're taking the day off for once!

Wow what a weekend. After Friday I thought all my stuff was gunna be wiped out. There's rust on my cars but everything fired right back up on sat mourning. The only thing I lost was a power supply and a ezup thanks to bungee cord Remick. Lol.

I just want to thank the people that everyone is forgetting about. With out these guys that the track wouldn't of been what it is today. Chris O and Freddy H spent 14 days straight building, painting and designing the track. Also big thanks to chris for getting the ball in motion for the nats.

Great race can't wait to do it again.

No problem, there's a pic of me using a hair dryer on ole rusty. Did you really think the combined weight of you and the franchise where goin to hold onto the 10x10? I mean after you guys where soaked, you barely weighted 200lbs together,LOL.

I *think* the math equation would be closer to:

windspeed x tent(10ft by 20ft due to bungee) > two medium shirt E-town posse members
