keep it up. (chicky, where you at?)

I just spoke with him (chicky) and he said he had a engine go dead rich on him at the start of his qualifer. Bum deal for him. Sounds like they are going to resort after 2 rounds. I think the 200mm cars got their second run in, but Masters and 8th Open did not.

Hopefully someone at the track will take pictures of the specially built track jet dryer that the Ft Myers Club just finished. That thing is sick and will give you a suntan in less than a second!
If I am not mistaken, that dryer can be found on this video at 2:57. It that is it, your right, looks sick! However could be improved. I would put some servos on that thing and drive it around the track.

How is this? I would be forever in your debt if you could find the time to get some video of Art. The entire time I am watching the video, I will be praising your efforts in keeping the general public informed on such a great event. Afterall, if it wasn't because of you, we wouldn't have any video at all.

Seriously, I appreciate the time you devote to filming, downloading and posting the images. I know you probably have better things to do, but the reality is that if people like you didn't feed us this video images we would be in the dark. I extend my most sincerest appreciation for your efforts

Hey All,

If you go to Winternats.com. All the heats will be posted from today and the qual standings. Just give us a little time to update it.
We had just complete all the Sedan heats and was running the first Masters race when it started raining. We will pick up with the first Masters race in the morning.

The standings are all close and the racing is excellent.

Dave
