Congrat's guys an a great weekend!!
Thanks Lee .

Fun weekend of racing. BIG Thanks to the crew of Harbor Hobbies for a great event. I know a lot of effort goes into this, and the smooth running weekend shows the results of this effort.

Another fun observation... The top 3 in the USVTA class were running:

#1 Losi XXX-S
#2 Tamiya TB03 in qualifying and Tamiya TA05 in the Mains
#3 Tamiya 415

All older budget friendly platforms to race with. Just goes to validate the USVTA formula for racing .

Jimmy

We had a ton of fun racing this weekend. Big thanks to Eric and the crew for running a great race program. The single car 1 minute VTA 1st round qualifing was a great idea, mixing up the starting style of the rest of the qualifing rounds was fun, and running the A3 VTA main backward was a blast (and the track worked very well running it that way). The VTA A3 finish was one of the most exciting I've ever had, Rob did a great job holding on for the win (or driving under? lol)

Great Job to all the winners...you earned it!!

Can't wait for next year!!!

Thanks to Eric and staff for running a smooth race program. There was a ton of close racing in every heat. I know I squeaked away with the overall win in Mini by 4/10th of a second. Must have been the bacon grease I slathered on the car before the mains.

It was a little late on Saturday, but I was home early enough on Sunday to spend some time with the family.

What ever happened to the Mini Belt?

Thanks Eric and crew for another great event!
Still surprised that Kevin K did well with his Losi xxxs.
Maybe next year I will have to dust off my TA03F with dual 1 ways. . .

Huge thanks once again to the Whitesides and their crew on another amazing race, and to Eric/RJ for their help for my dad and I in Mini.

The racing was crazy close all weekend, and there were some amazing on-track battles that you're lucky to see once a weekend, and we saw them several times a round. You can't really ask for anything more, as a fan or a racer.
