Guys remember,, Mugen or Kyosho didn't won this one,,
Mugen can't win if they don't show up Looks like it was a competitive race. Actually all the big races have been competitive. I think there's been a different winner, for both driver/manufacturer for all the National level events.

in 1/8th, Josh had a glitch, which sent his car into the wall, thus breaking the right rear suspension.

I've got LOTS and LOTS of photos guys.. be patient and I will post some as soon as I can. I just got home an hour ago and will work on *SOME* pictures tonight. I've got 1,000 pics to sort and edit, so this will be a nightly thing all week long, but I will post on here each time I update.

Expect the first update around Midnight tonight Ladies...

Great job by Ted Hammer and all the other club members for putting on a great show and making it a supper enjoyable weekend. Little FYI, I counted roughly 30+ drivers from both Region 1 & 2 who made the drive just to race in 1/8th scale. You guys have a great facility. I'll make this race again for sure.
