A big thanks to Myron and everyone that set this event up. I had a great time. I didn't do so well (B main in both TC and VTA) but there was some talent at this race so I feel pretty lucky. I will definately make it a point to come again next year. The track was awesome. The traction was unbelievable from the start. Thanks again Batman. See ya next year.

Big thanks to Myron and all the others behind the curtain. Another great Southern Nats. Thank you for all the time you guys put into this. Hope to see this event continue in the coming years. Got to meet some people from all over and make some new friendships.

Had a great time. Thanks to Myron, Dirla, and crew for putting together a great race. Thanks to everyone that made it out as well. I love close racing, and it doesn't get much better than this. My driver was bi-polar this weekend. I was either on or off for most of the weekend. In the mains, I couldn't make up my mind which driving personality to pick LOL

Congrats to EA on the double win. He was dialed in by the time the mains rolled around. I'm not going to lie... I thought I had tq wrapped up, but you pulled off a great run to sneak past me by .8 or whatever it was.

Thanks to Tim for the trophy's, brad for the help with ballasts, and all those who helped clean the place up. I can't remember his name, but thanks to the guy that graded the parking lot so my G8 didn't bottom out any more

I want to say thanks to Myron, Dirla and the entire Thunder RC crew for putting on a great event. Personally I feel everyone won at this event with either, positions finished or the gain of knowledge. I definitely got faster by the end of the weekend and will be much faster next year. That trophy is mine.

Thanks to all the people that came to our track to run! I know I speak for all the locals when saying we were all more than excited to see our place full of racers and all the good comments we had about the track and work everyone has put in on it.

Special thanks to Myron for organizing this event and putting so much of his time and his own PERSONAL MONEY into this race to make it happen. Myron doesnt like to say much about it but without his efforts this race would not have ever happened.

Thanks to Tim Moore also for the awesome Trophies that he got for everyone, the fill in announcing and just being Tim.

Thanks to Robert Dirla for putting up with all us racers and keeping our track going and giving us a place to race and have a good time.

Thanks to all the guys that showed up last weekend to help clean and get the place ready. Brad Norris (lights), Evan Williams (lights), Bryan Klammer (Union leader and coordinator), Brian Letrich (cleaning and moving), Chuck Moores (cleaning and moving) and the others that I am forgetting also that came to help.

I think everyone had a great time this weekend! When you think about all the hours to build and prepare the track, all the hours we all took preparing our cars and driving to get there, all the hours we spent racing and practicing over three days, man, it blows your mind. What an event!

My favorite part was finding out that I wasn't the only guy who really loves VTA. I sure wish we could get the VTA class going again in Indy. I was only running off road until I saw my first VTA race at RCAR. That hooked me in an instant to wanting to race on-road and I had a TC3 and a Camaro body in a couple of days. Muscle cars = Awesome.

I will post my pics soon on Flickr and link to them.

Hope to see you all again next year!

Scott
