This year hoping to ride the passenger seat in a porsche cayenne turbo. If he won't drive then it will be in a lame ass Toyota Camry (just couldn't take the unreliable electronics of the VW anymore).

Seriously Barry why do you have to ruin so many good photos of beautiful women. Yet taunt us with the corn lady.

You coming to Tennessee? I know your luck won't follow you out of state.

LOL!!! I did not create this photo... Someone else did the work... Have you seen Espo's new one on FB? Oh my god... that is someone with some serious Daddy issues.... (not Espo....)

I'm strongly thinking about it... Just need to get some parts back (like my speedos and Pinions....)

Without you I wouldn't of had so much fun calling the races this weekend. I hope everybody made it back home safe and had a great time.

Full heat and main results with triple A mains included

http://results.rc50.com/Thunder_RC_N...11/09-25-2011/

video is up on http://www.ustream.tv/channel/thunderrc/videos I got 162 minutes of the mains. I'll sort out which ones later this week but you can watch them till I can put a main group to each one.

ps if you didn't have a great time or have comments please PM me and I'll see what I can do to fix it for the 2012 USVTA+ Southern Nationals.

Go VTA!

Thanks for running a great event.
