Another great event in the books. A big thank you to Brian Thomas,crew and Greater LA Club as always for organizing and putting on another great run event.

Thanks to all the sponsors for their donations and involvement in this event and for giving back to the racers.

We saw some great racing, some ups and downs but in the end I saw everyone coming out to enjoy our hobby/sport. Thank you to all the racers and pit persons for coming out and we look forward to next year's event.

Lastly, thank you to Billy and Tracy of Acorn Racing USA for coming out with their trackside parts support. I know it's hard to just come down with a full load of parts for the racers, but you also managed to be the bump up king this weekend!

-Robert

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that it takes to make this race possible. Between Brian, Chris, Robert and the entire club, I know it must be a lot of work and hard to stay motivated sometimes. The track was in great form and everyone looked to have a good time. Glad to see such high competition at the race and see everyone at the Nationals.

Thanks again guys,

DJ Apolaro

Wow What a great weekend of racing the competion was 1st class . We wouldlike to thank robert form K.O. Propo and all the associate sponsor for putting on a great event. To Brian, Chris and all the GLARCRC crew, Great job guys.

Also we would like to thank our supporters Paolo and Jaoquin from Serpent America. Great effort this weekend guys and we cant thank you enough. The 977 is getting better and better with each outing.

To Kevin Hutchinson at Kevco racing for his continued support. The Picco ran flawless all weekend. Without people like you we wouldn't be where we are today.

To all our teamates thanks for your support as well. Special congrats to Brandon for making his 1st A main. To Walter for his bump ups from the C main. And to Paulie B for his podium in the "C". Great job gentleman.

And last to all the rest of the podium finishers and racers for coming out and making this a great event. Many of you traveled from far and wide to make it here and we thank you. Its seems like every year this event continues to grow. We look forward to seeing all of you back out in July and for the nationals.
