This is just my opinion, but the excuses for a pro driver not making his main because he was out partying too late is just bull. If you're a pro and at an event like this, you're being paid to be there, this is your job.

How many times have you heard people talk about, "did you see so-and-so's run in the C main, that would have put him _ in the A if he could have done that in qualifying."

I thought it was cool as hell to watch Billy Easton run the E main at the snowbirds with only him and one other person. You could tell that she was having a blast, and I'm sure it's an RCmemory to last. Both of them had a smile when the race was over,and that was great sportsmanship and PR for Losi, even if it was the "E".

Brandon, There were 3 people in that heat Billy, Toni (my daughter) and Mark Snook. Mark broke after the 2/3 lap. Billy and Toni put on a great show and had FUN!!!!!!!!!!! There were other drivers who had made that main who didn't race!! Sorry about their luck as the 2 who did had a great time!!!!! Billy is a class act !!!!

Brandon: That was one of the best mains run at the Snowbirds. There were almost as many people watching the E-Main as the A. Billy even signed his plaque and gave it to Toni after the trophy presentation. At the awards Toni was joined by Matt Francis, McMoney, Andrew Gray and Eddie Garrison who took the places of the the trophy girls. She did have a blast that day thanks to some of the best racers in the hobby!!

Just to clarify, it was actuall the F-Main, lol. But yes, it was a lot of fun and I had a blast.

Brandon - thanks for bringing that one up. Glad to see that so many other people find that as memorable as I do, lol. See you next week

i have never raced at a major event, only local club racing, but even at my level if one of the fast guys didnt run in the main cuz he felt there were no competition for him, id have a few words for him that would probably be frowned upon, i think somtimes these guys forget that this is just toy car racing and without us nerds there nobody... to everyone else in the mainstream im sure they can go to a supermarket and not get mobbed by people saying ohhh there goes so and so, didnt he just win the toy car racing championships of the universe... please they need to relise were the few they need to impress upon, hell im a pretty big fan and i think if marc reinhard walked past me in the mall id never know unless hes wereing a tamiya shirt!!!

The way I look at it is...I'm in this main because I didn't do well earlier. I believe I'm better than this and should have made the A. Next time I will, but I'm gonna go out there and prove it to everyone and myself

Oddly enough, I haven't qualified lower than 8th in any race since I started running Expert last season

Thank you Rick.

It was a pleasure to see SAKKE AHONIEMI run the F-main. He had a horriable weekend in the Mod Foam class and didn't finish a qualifier. True Profesional.
