The question is, where is the Legend "Little Davie Campbell" going to be this weekend? No mention of his name on the entry list.

He has this weekend to make up for his August race and again be called "Lead Singer and Driver of the Winabago".

Mr. Hammer, I will see you this weekend. Sure wish you were still riding in the big truck. Oh the stories there could have been.

Last year we attended the RC Pro Series final in Texas and only paid $45.00 to race and that was the only race we attended for the Pro Series. I agree with Z, not bad for 3 days of racing.

haha - I like how "watwasdat" forgot to mention that the man assaulted a 54 year old woman on his way out of the grocery store. Strong-arm robbery is a felony!

There may be changes needed with the RC Pro Series and I think they are coming but, It is still a much better way of determining a national champ.

See ya this weekend.

One other comparison to note here...

I recently wrote a check out for the Indoor Champs entry. It was $155 for 2 classes. That's 2 electric classes, meaning very limited track time (like about 24 minutes of practice, 32 minutes of qualifiers, and 8 minutes of a main... each...). I'd have more track time in just practice at this race than I will for the whole Cleveland event.

PS... DeltaDave... Still waiting to see your name hit the Cleveland entry list !!

60 minute Main is to long. Looks like I will be shoots for the B.

I would hate to have to ask my pit man to stand around and help for an Hour. That is just plain rude. Of course with in 20 minutes of a main with OV, I am sure he could take care of my pipe. I call Mikie as my pit man.

John,

Are we going to see you in Lincoln?
