To all of those who are traveling, please have a safe trip and say hi when you can. The TCS National has always been unique and fun with a "family reunion" kind of atmosphere.

p.s. I actually looked at my avatar again for the first time in a long time...Hooray for boobies!

Mike, that move was awesome. However, we shouldn't have to resort to those kinda tactics...leave it to Shake n Bake
ooo i heard El Diablo and The Magic man are coming.

Rod... hit me up tomorrow. imma make a run friday afternoon for some "supplies" let me know if you want me to pick up something for you.

Troy,

I timed several guys from all over with the Orion lap counter for an entire 5 min run. I stated above that the times were around so and so, and not the single fast lap times.

Fastest times I recorded for Thursday were

gt1 - 15.5
gt2 16.9
mini - 18.0
Past Champs 14.9
Unlimited Frog 13.9
stock frog 18.9

Just about packed up and will be heading to the airport soon. Looking forward to seeing everyone at SpeedTech tonight and at the track tomorrow.

Each year, the TCS Nats gets more and more like a family reunion...but it's gonna be interesting to see how much 'love' is handed out when qualifying for Mini begins Easily the best group of Nats Mini drivers in the past five years

Good luck to all of those attending this years nats. I would have loved to meet up with the Tamiya "family" again for another round, but family and work called once again. One of these years I will make it for the past champion's race. Would be fun to race against Bruce Hickman in the same class instead of sitting on the other side of the pit table. Maybe if he picks up a mini....

Good luck Troy, Dan and all the boys from Trackside. I didn't see if Michigan is represented this year.

Hi Martin,
What is new? I see you are not attending the race this year to defend your crown. I would love to make it to one of teh past chaps races, but too many other things have taken priority. Oh well.

Hey Erik,

It truly is one of my favorite races to go to. I love the reedy race format that we run under and all the practice time. I love racing not qualifying, so that format fits me. I wish I could have been there.
