I wish everyone a safe trip up to the Trackside TCS race.

As Dish said; "I hope Tamiya does not make the same mistake next year scheduling two great TCS races back to back". I was worried that it would zap the strength of WOH? I am glad it did not. If it were Washington and WOH that would be one thing. Unfortunately it forced some to choose 1 venue.

I hope Trackside has "live" results for faithful TCS watchers.

For the rest that are going, hope to see you today in the AM.....

For thos coming to Trackside for the TCS, We open today @ 10AM. The Rally track went over great last night. It is a real challenging track. Should be a blast! I will try to get some pictures posted during the weekend.

The weekend was a blast. Thanks to Fred and Tamiya for all of the fun.
Rally racing is way too much fun. There is nothing better than a driverstand full of guys who are too busy laughing to drive a good line. Well, that's the excuse I'm going to use. Great racing all weekend, if you missed this, start making plans for next year now.
