I'll probably run both but the green will be easier to see when contrasting the large red and white apexes at Kissimmee.

Will certainly miss ya'll this Saturday.

Its all good Todd, I transcribed the schedule to my phone about 5 minutes after you originally posted it... I kinda somewhat remember someone saying a date got dropped do to a event race somewhere and just never updated my phone...
but I was to sick to race, so im thinking that was a great day to find out that I didnt miss out on gym racing!

No carpet nationals for the west coast ... Horsham gets the carpet nationals two times in three years? Doesn't seem fair ....

Yeah I think it was due to our date being right after Snow Birds. But I personal don't think it would have effected it much if at all...

I was considering racing in Nats this year...getting my ass kicked and all. But 2 times in three years? Think I'll pass this year. Not sure who's making the decisions up at the top but they aren't doing a fair job imo.

It's not that I mind not getting it here, but they need to spread it around a bit and give some other tracks an opportunity. Somehow I think Roger Goodell is involved....

This gives SRCR another year to plan and come up with a better proposal / schedule than this year?

Hope this doesn't offend anyone.

Bummer... but this gives us a chance to help support NORA at the hobby show expo. They'll be laying down the carpet, so we should make it a great turn out

Real bummer about the Nats , Kody and Brian put in a LOT of the work to create a proposal and more. Thanks for the hard work guys, I saw enough to know it wasn't trivial . Sonetimes it comes down to timing, and it appears that was the main reason. I believe we were looking for an exception with regards to the timing, so that stacked the odds against , ( IMHO , no matter what they officially said ).

Hope all the guys going to IIC have a great time and do their best. If I wasn't going to the worlds that's where I would have gone, I'm all packed and ready...
Looks as though the weather may hold out, which was my only worry. Just going to try my best and have a nice race vacation. Thanks Shookie and Todd for the well wishes. I'll do my best to represent but mostly there to watch the best race but also see if I can surprise myself on asphalt for once ! Lol.

Cheers,

Jake

When roar was a big deal it had to switch coasts every year, it's nice cause not everyone wants to travel to the same cold east coast track
