Welcome! Hopefully we bring less anger than IIC did!

Yeah I wasn't as happy at the IIC as I would have liked. My gear that I had spent so much time on trying to get right turned out to be no more useful than wishfull thinking. I have since built a few crazy cars to brute force the problems that insane grip caused me. One will truely be one of a kind.

Grip will probably be higher than IIC by a good bit.

Its amazing what 20-30 percent more humidity will do to a track.

Exclamation

It is with both excitement and regret, that I have to make the following announcement.

Due to the increased popularity of the race, the number of entries, our commitment to keeping four qualifiers, and tme constraints on Sunday, we have decided to change the mains format for the race from triple a mains to single mains on Sunday.

We apologize for and inconvienience this may have caused, but are very excited about hosting such a great number of racers at this years MHIC.

More big sponsorship news.


STORMER HOBBIES is on board and will be providing lunch for ALL RACERS on Saturday between the first and second qualifiers.

A huge thanks to Bob Stormer and his crew for this great treat for the racers. Best door prize ever, free food.

We're in the que to have them build and sew us up a few hundred of them. We'll see how it goes. I've never seen anything like these, they're lined but not stretchy like a standard T or jersey. Might not be a good fit if you have massive man-boobs.

just an fyi on that.
When these go on sale, I'll be buying one (man boobs be damned!) Heck with how much I've spent at Stormer, I am starting to think I should be listed as a sponsor of Stormer racing

That is awesome! An event sponsorship everyone wins with! This lets people save some cash up to buy another Awesomatix raffle ticket!

Whoohoo! I like the idea of food. One guy wins a raffle. But free lunch! That's a win for everybody!

I can't wait to call the local pizza place and order 40 pizzas, and some wings... and maybe we should get some cake too. (and maybe ice cream) and....

now I'm drooling.
