Not that I have heard. It would be nice if there was some sort of coverage.

All I know is Paolo won GT class with the Serpent, JJ Wang won 10th sedan with the Mugen because DJ had an issue with his ride in the main with a commanding lead. I left before the 8th main was over....but Paolo was leading the field. They had about 40 minutes left. I'm sure the mains will be posted on here later. Local guys that made the show were Espo and Aaron,made the main in 8th, Mike Lyday and Mark B in GT howard Lo bumped from the B-main in GT and Dan Louis Also looked good. He bumped from the B in 8th also. Sorry if I missed anyone else. See you'll Friday or Sunday. Ira too bad you're not around anymore. The track is awesome with these Electric sedans. Hope to see you at the Nats in August. The air-conditioned pits are the sh#t!

Thanks for the update. Hope we can keep it a local sweep but I know Paolo is pretty good.

I just got back home to Texas from the Byron's Challenge in Chicago. I know Tony, Shawn, Pete and I had a great time racing and meeting a lot of great people from Chicago and other parts of the country. I want to thank all the people that helped make this race possible. The track conditions and the race atmosphere was top notch. This was my first outing with my new Serpent GT car and the car is awesome. The corner speed and setup is unbelievable. This car makes driving GT even more fun. I cannot say enough good things about the car. Special thanks goes out to the following people: Wild Bill with IGTHobbies for putting our team together and supporting us. Pallo and Rino for the support with the Serpent Cobra GT. Mark (Grenade10) for pitting me in the 1/8 GT A main. I coudn't have asked for a better pitman, love the way you take it so serious. Pete for all the help in the pits and feedback from observing the action on the track all weekend. We couldn't have done it without you. Ryan with Byron's Fuels for your help in the pits for the last qualifier on Sat. My next gallon of fuel will be Byron's fuel after talking with you this weekend. I meet a lot of great people too many to mention by name. It was also nice to finally put a face with some of the names from this forum too. Hope to see some of you at a race in Houston soon! See you guys next year!!!!!!

Well, I am sitting at the airport waiting for the plane. Would like to say thanks to the Leisure hours crew for all the hard work. They held a great event and the facility is awesome. Thanks to the Byron's team for holding the event, the racers seem to have a really good time.

A little bitter sweet for me just from a racer standing. I had a great car all weekend. Setting a strong TQ and leading the final by a good margin, it felt like everything was in place. Too bad the end results for me was a DNF. Tough luck I guess.

Thanks to all the track crew and to Kenny for all the pit work. He did an awesome job all weekend. Also to Rino and Junior for the laughs in the pits.

I highly recommend this race guys for next year. Great facility, just make sure to leave your GPS at home. We got lost a lot this weekend. Juliet must be a black hole or something LOL.

Congrats to JJ and Pallo (Paolo) for their wins.
