Thumbs up

On behalf of all the people involved with Homestead RC Raceway we would like to thank all the racers and pit people that showed up to make this a fantastic event. It was a pleasure working with such a good group of people.

As the Race Director/Announcer I would like to thank all of the Homestead RC Raceway track crew that went above and beyond to plan, prepare and finish this wonderful facility. You made my job much easier.

A special thank you to Johnny Wong for working tirelessly to get it all done in time.

A special thanks to Jim Rice and David Larry for covering my back and offering your help and ideas.

Finally all of us at Homestead RC Raceway hope we were good hosts and that you will return to race with us again.

You did an outstanding job running the races. Way to keep us informed.

Track crew,

Excellent job with providing us a great area for pitting, the track was awesome.

Johnny Wong,

Yes I had a great time and thanks for cooking.

To Jim Rice and Randy Rhodes,

Thanks to you 2 for providing us the wreck of the weekend.

Randy you should have never given that engine to Gary. Now he has Rhodes power and thats not good.

See you all at the next race.

WOW Great racing. Even though the days were hot every one was great. Doug and every one the Homestead crew did a great job. I anticipate that Homestead has earned its spot in the Forgass series.

Some realy great action on the track, commentary by Doug and food by Johnny and family. All around I had a great time.

Either go Fast or go Home.
