Thank you for the entire Team Taylor Racing staff- sign in, track prep/maintenance, announcer, tech, catering -for putting together and running a flawless program for us racers to enjoy. Hope to be able to come back for the nats; this is without a doubt one of the best race programs around. Congrats to BT and Scott on their wins!

First i would like to thank everyone for all the support, it was the best race of my racing career, i can't say enough for the support that Mugen gives me; thanks to Mike Swauger, Robbie Collins and Chris Moore. Plus all the guys on the team for their help, especially Mike Strack, Ron, Darin, Harry, Steve,Carl, Mark, Jane, Jason, Tone and Ira. I know if Ron Atomic and Barry Baker wouldn't had problems it would had been difficult to run close to those two so i guess you can say i got lucky ..........and thats cool with me . I got to thank Barry for being such a cool guy about that and not throwing that in my face... top notch guy. Also have to thank my painter ...the coolest painter to have; Jeremy GO better known as JGO thanks for all the help...P.S. Im going to finish painting your body before the summer ends I also have to give props to Chris Verano on his third place finish in 1/8th scale and also to the first guy i ever traveled to a nationals with ...way back in 1999 ...Garen on his second place finish in 1/8th scale nice job


Brian Thomas

What a great weekend...As always Rich Taylor and Crew run an exceptional program. For me this has become the one race I look forward to every year.

Congrats to my man Brian for his huge win in Sedan...he drove the entire race as if it was a qualifier...never let off...his line during the last 5 minutes was the same as the first 5 minutes...awesome job.

Thanks again to all the Mugen guys for your help and for hosting the Mugen Challenge Race...this was an opportunity for the non-sponsored drivers to go home with some serious prizes. Car kits, engines and carry cases for the top 3 positions for both 1/10th and 1/8th classes. Thanks for your continual support.

and of course...congrats to Scott Kimbrow for his win in 1/8th scale and to Garen Hagobian for finishing 2nd. Hey Garen...I guess the Kyosho car suits you better than the GS ride....

Default fun race!

Big thanks to Rich Taylor and co. for putting on a fun show... everything went smoothly and the racing was a blast.

Thanks also to Mugen for sponsoring the race; I think races like the "Mugen Challenge" race are a great idea. Maybe more big events will do stuff like that?

Congrats to all the participants, especially Scott Kimbrow for winning 1/8,
Brian Thomas for winning sedan (nice drive!), and Jimmy DePrez for bumping up from the B sedan into the A sedan and finishing 2nd. Ron Atomic was "Mr Smooth" behind the wheel of his 1/8 (did you SEE his car? Smooth as silk...) in the B-main; congrats on the bump to the A on the first time with an 1/8 car! It was good to see Chris V and Steve P and Garen H doing really well too... congrats on a great race guys.

The Nats are always fun but they will be really fun this year -- if this race was any indication of what to expect we'll have a big turnout and good racing!
