Congrats to all the winners. I had a good time and the Fort Myers crew did a great job. It must be hard to run such a large event. There was a lot of good drivers and I really enjoy these types of races. Although it is a long week, I like hanging out with everyone. Thanks to all my sponsors for their support.

Same here guys....Loran and I had a great time as usual. The race is run so well that you really don't think about it much while it’s happening. Between the tight track and the competition, this race is our favorite. We will be back next year. I have to thank Mugen Seiki USA for helping us this year and in particular Mike, Harry and Ira for all the help, pit work and advice. I also have the thank Rick Vessell for the O’Donnell fuel which we always have good luck with and couple sets of front tires that kept me bumping up. Again, we had a great time and thank you to the Ft Myers crew.
