First time at MIHC and had a blast. Huge props to the 5280 crew for putting on what must be the largest Club race ever. Was great to meet in person Mario, Jim and Al. You guys have a great annual race and looking forward to next year.

Thanks to the So Cal crew of Phil and Kyle Goodwine, Dave Berger and Fred Hubbard, You made the weekend fun and entertaining. Big thanks to Steven Jackson from Las Vegas. You were the one who went in 2014 and convinced us to go this year. Bummed you had to head home Friday but glad your father is doing better.

Dave Ehrlich and Robert from VBC. Big thanks on the F1 help. Never ran my VBC F1 on such high traction carpet before. I have a really good starting point for next year now.

Mario - the flash drive was mailed out today and hopefully you will have by Saturday. Just over 800 pics. Enjoy going through them.

Hope to bring a larger crowd up for the 2016 edition from So Cal (including Bill Jeric of Tuning Haus that was very bummed he had to miss due to a business conflict).

Thanks to the entire crew and members at 5280 Raceway.
Kyle and I got home from our drive yesterday afternoon. Seen more snow and rain on the trip home.
Had a blast with all of our RC car friends that we knew and many more we got to meet.
Class act at 5280 Raceway to Mario, Art, Jim and everybody else what a great event.
I always enjoy getting to go to any event no matter how I finish up. I'm there to have fun with my son Kyle and friends from all over this great RC community.
Can't wait till 2016 MHIC, Kyle and I will be glad to haul up more guys stuff.
Till the next big event, have fun stay safe and enjoy life.

Just wanted to say thanks for putting together one of the most fun races I have ever been to. I hadn't raced in a "event" level race since the 2009 nationals. I want to do it again this weekend, lol.

It would have been great to have a F1 Concourse. Maybe next year we can convince the 5280 raceway crew to schedule some time for us to put all the F1's on display and take a vote from everyone present.

If we had a F1 Concourse this year, Panda's car would have been my vote.

If you put Art in a banana suit, wouldn't it be more of a plantain than a banana?

Just saying.

I'm guessing he is the short one with the Protoform hat on. Look behind the antlers.

Fantastic race. Well worth the trip from TN. Want to say a special thanks to locals Russ Lantzy and Frank Wantz for their friendship in the pits. Both offered to let me use their radios when mine fell off the table and broke. Great guys! See ya next year...save my spot.
