Keith yu won the first two mains in his class.

Mike Steel came second in the first two mains in his class....not sure if this class has an overall winner yet.

Joe Glover - broke in the first race and finished 6th in the second race.

Way to go Troy. Couldn't have happened to a nicer person. The Seatle connection always seems to make great showings at the Nats.

Congratulations to all the winners. Specially to SIR's Troy Crabtree and Mark Dawson.

This two guys are first class racers. They are just not fast guys but are down to earth and very willing to help other racers all the time.

Troy and SIR. Thanks for the shirt, I was surprise to get one with my rctech signature on it, awesome! Have a nice trip back to Seattle and off to Japan.

Mark great job and well deserved. Now bring a win for the USA.

Lee,
David finished 2nd in the mini A-main, and Nathan was 6th. Marty finished 5th in the GT1 A-main, and Paul finished 2nd in the GT1 C-main.

Many thanks to Fred and the folks at Tamiya for putting on another great show. Sticking to a tight schedule worked for everyone, and kept the sunlight over our heads.

Yet another great TCS Nats in the books! This one had a level of competition that met or exceeded any of the previous five I've attended. Big congrats to Troy Crabtree- you had to win it twice to get the trip, but you just ran off and hid in the third round- well done! Dawson was smooth and quick and really the class of the class in GT1 Might be worth hoping he brings it home to the USA for the first time in a long time. Keith Yu in GT2- simply amazing. Plus, when you figure he had to win the regional Canadian championship in order to then go on and win the Candadian National Championships and THEN come down to Aliso and battle the best from the USA...it simply boggles the mind.

Some impressive highlights for me: Mike Masters breaking in the first round of Mini and then going on to win the second round from mid pack. Marty Hageman making the A from the C qualifier rounds and then finishing 4-5-6 in a 414M. Craig Richter sneaking into the Mini A Main at the last minute. David Weir's son Nathan doing an AWESOME job handing it out to more experienced drivers and having a super overall finish- he's one to watch.

See everyone in 2007!
Later
Doc
