I'm not blasting the event, not at all. It's by far the most professional and well run race program I have ever been a part of. I can't imagine the planning it take to pull off what they do evey year, not the mention calming a fire marshall hellbent on shutting down the race! Mine are simply suggestions, I'm sure Mike is open to that. I second the Hobby shop thing, if you race 20 hours a day, shop should be open 22 hours, 1 hour before and after racing. Either that or allowa hobby shop that will.

unfortunatly Andres it seems to be the trend among current on road drivers to be a immature, rude, and childish as you can. I also want to bring something up. Have the factory touring teams ever heard of a trash can? after all teams pulled out of that room it was trashed. i think that what is most disturbing is that you team guys think it's normal and where are the so called team managers at? that wasn't the way the puit space was when you got it. Show some respect next year.

maybe they just don't like you EA. I have yet to have that happen. don't get me wrong there are some jerks on the oval side but it seems every year the onroad guys take the cake.

You should also change that a little. I know of 8 maybe 9 "factory" teams on manufacture's row that were OVAL. Not all of them were On-road.

And for the record I picked up everything in and around my pit before I left Sunday night....Thats what the trash bags were on the table's for at the end of the event.

LOL that is very possible....Most guys think I am an ass anyway......And its usually only when someone is in the A main or close to it that they do that....Espically when at the top of 19 turn or Mod.

I know of one Oval "Team" that wont help you much if you run in the same class as them because they are afraid you will beat them!! On-road guys are just the opposite. Associated, Losi, Xray, etc....Everyone on the team helps the other guys out to try and get the cars as good as they can to get them all into the A main....You can walk up to ANY on-road guy in the country and pick his car up and look at it....You try to walk up to some of the Top oval guys in the country and pick his car up and you'll draw back with a few less fingers!! Just a different breed I guess.

Which hobby shop are you guys talking about? The one in by the track or in the hotel?

And I'm sure the oval pit area was just as messy, and there were quite a few oval guys in the front room too. Just because we can turn right doesn't mean that you have to hate us.

for the last 4 years the hobbyshop has been that way. the guys at superior are awesome but they need to be open 24 hours a day. as far as having someone else. there is knowone else Superior is the only hobbyshop in the state of florida that can pull off a event like this. maybe next year. they be open more

Timmy and EA I was there well after most had left. and let me say that the room where losi trinity xray and associated were pitted was trashed. no excuses. no matter what class you ran. and yes that room was worse than the trackside pitting. that's the thing that kills me EA your like cool let me pick up all my trash when others are like awe screw it not my problem. so in the end EA maybe you can be a leader in this group of follows and raise the bar.

Hey man the kettle is here, it wants it's color back.

Reading your stuff you sound like sour grapes.

And they aren't called "Pits" for nothing. I think after the race it was pretty clean, but it's an RC race, things get messy. But I don't think anybody was being dirty, you think your buddy Jeff Gordon cleans up the pits after he races? California speedway has people to do that.

I'm sorry if I don't get off on heckling the lower mains, getting drunk and acting like an ass and being a slob in the pits. Thanks for proving the point even futher Derek. just because there pits doesn't mean that it's ok to trash them. guess I was just brought up different

Have you ever been to a race? Cheering heckling is part of the fun. This isn't tennis. It's just as bad as people not wanting flashes during a race.

I didn't see people acting like "asses" maybe remember you're having fun and racing and things won't be so bad.

Your pit must be super clean, because you have half the work to do, turning only left.
