It took an awful big man to do that and it made Jordan's weekend. Probably the best display of sportsmanship I've ever seen.
Thats awesome. I remember everyone cheering him on, but I was left going, "What? What did I miss?"

Thanks for taking the time to document all of this for us! Its obvious you are spending a lot of time on it now and a lot of time during the event.

It was great to watch my races again, even the bad parts!

I couldn't have done it without the help of 4 other racers sitting close to my pit table. I want to specially thank Daniel "ATLiens" Thornton and Alex "ZPG" Varcoe for helping me capture nearly half of those videos.

2012 USVTA Southern Nationals
Some really cool pictures! Is there a cost to get the ones we want without the watermark? Didn't know what your arrangements were with the track. If being sold, do you have any ballpark pricing?
