First, so much credit goes to the folks at NORCAR and specifically Ken, John, and Sean for keeping the history of this great event going and for all their labors to make the U.S. INDOOR CHAMPS one the best run and most enjoyable events I have attended in my many years. It was so good to see so many old friends (a lot of you guys are really getting older) and make a number of new ones. The racing was great all weekend, so many fast racers so I was more than happy to provide the slow. Mark your calendars for next year, this is a must attend annual event in my book.

Default I'm lost!

Hello, I think I was abandoned at the 2013 U.S. Indoor Championships by Dave Johnson? Much to my despair, I realized everyone had left and I was still here.

What did I do wrong? How could I have offended? Could someone let Mr. Johnson know that I am sincerely sorry and would truly enjoy his company for the rest of my life.

Cheer up buddy. Go grab some of those Chicken Planks, and you'll be all set.

I heard that award say that he was catching a cab to the casino. I'm sure he'll drop by the Gate sometime to hook up with you.

Maybe I'm just doomed to walk the planet like David Banner, hitch hiking with what ever RC guy I can get a ride with until I find my man? Could anyone speculate as to why he would leave me?

First off, I'm specifically calling out Alex and George. Those two worked themselves to the bone to provide an excellent racing surface. Mad props boys.

Sean, Ken, and John, What can I say? A great job, and a great program.

Many thanks to the NORCAR crew as well, awesome barriers, and a fun layout!

Had a great time pitting with the CRC guys, watching the action, and even announcing a bit. The granddaddy of all hotel races is back on track.

Thanks go out to ALL the racers. Lets face it, it's the guys on the drivers stand and the racing on the track that make a race event worthy.

We (Sean, John, and myself) undertook this challenge because we wanted to see the Granddaddy of hotel races return to the top of the list of must do events. As a kid racing in the 80's reading about the Champs in Car Action and Rev-Up, it was always one of those Holy Grail of events that I had no hope of talking my dad into traveling half way across country to do, now life has placed me in the Midwest and fate gave me the opportunity to partake in the support of this tradition, it truly was an honor.

Now for next year, we have heard small suggestions and have discussed amongst ourselves room for continuous improvement. Rest assured this race WILL be better and better.

Thx for the results as always!

Would have liked to have made an appearance this year, but stuck at work again.

Trying to get my WGT car together to make some sort of onroad race this season.
