Haha, you were fast all weekend. My car was good until I broke a shock half way thru the main. The track was fun and what an awesome facility. Can't wait till the next one.

Wow! What a weekend! A big thank you to Jeremy, Mike, Roger and all the crew at Mike's Hobby Shop/ Gulfcoast Raceway. You all put on a great event as usual. I had a really rough time of it on Saturday but was lucky enough to get some help in getting my IGT ready for Sunday's Mains. A special thank you to Andy Liu for helping me out on that pinion gear in order to rebuild my rear diff. Also a special thank you to Lou LaDuca and John Pena, my pit crew. A big thanks to Sam at Kamikaze Racing, Al Robles of Al's Hobbies and Phil and the crew from Hobbytown USA San Antonio. And of course Murnan Mods. After blowing 2nd gear in the A-main I thought I was done but the Murnan Mod Hottinger X28 Fusion kept pushin out that power with only 1st gear and I managed the 3rd place finish. Was great racing with all the IGT guys again. See you all at a track soon.

Regards,

Daniel

Thanks to all that made this past weekend happen. I fought my car all weekend but came away with a lot better knowledge of my car setup. We tried some things thanks to , Drew, Chris, and Terry that I would never have thought of. My car was hooked and dropped two seconds off my best lap time on the track in past races. I'm excited about the new serpent car and hope it will bring more drivers to GT.
I'm glad I was able to help, Dee

It was nice meeting you as well. Hope to see you again. This event was just Awesome from start to finish. I know you were having bad luck, but that got washed away by Sunday LOL!!

The start to our main was amazing, everyone fighting for position and keeping it clean, just pure excitement!!

You going to Bryon Challenge?

Great race everyone! Mike's Hobbyshop/Gulf Coast Raceway is an outstanding facility, and the people who organize/operate the event are awesome! Hopefully, we can do more races like this in the future.

I have HD videos of the complete Sedan A and B mains, GT A main, and 1/8 A and B mains. I just have to finish rendering them, and then upload them to my Youtube page. I'll post when they are ready for your viewing pleasure.

Gus, If you change your mind on the Byrons Race, and want to ride part of the way, just let me know, glad to have the company, plus we can work on the pit timing!

Brian, Thanks for pitting for me, fastest tire change in the North, South, East and West. (We were close to the transfer spot untill then)

Andy, Always nice to race and hang out ...... Got to do this again.

I'm off to the Fireball race Memorial weekend in Lincoln Nebraska, so if your interested, let me know and I'll get you the info.

It was nice meeting and racing with: Gus, Mark, Leon. I'm planning on going to the Byron Challenge in June. Besides all my issues this past weekend I had a great time racing with you all. I'm looking forward to a large count of GT cars at the Byron's Challenge. I know Tony and Shawn are planning on going. I'm sure Andy with enough pressure will go too.
