Wow 142 entries

56 Mini's

I better get my game on if I want to make the show.

Are they going to use the TCS indexing system to set up the qualifiers for this race? I was 4th in the "A" at the Trackside race I was hoping to get in a good qualifier with Doc, oh wait never mind

See you Saturday,
Steven

Wait, I thought this was suppose be fun? How come it became serious... seriously fun? Hehe... Regardless, expect somewhere around 50 to 100 TAOB guys to attend...

Fred, thanks in advance for putting this race up... or should I say, thanks for putting up with us? I guess it works both ways.

Let's be careful there, Steve. Don't confuse a good qualifier and a qualifier with me Two different events entirely!

Agreed, however, that 56 Mini's is alot of small tires in one place. That's like...8 qualifying heats!!!!

Mini is going to be INSANE this weekend! I don't think I've ever seen that many minis at one time. Gotta love the photo op!

Can we drop off our entry in the Starbucks Cup soon to be renamed the Medel Cup ?
I like the sound of that..... "The Medel Cup"

Everyone is to have fun whether they like it or not. If you don't we'll stick you in the corner.

Did Doc make it 2 in a row like Gordon?

Default Reedy warm-up

Hey Fred, thanks for throwing on this weekends race. It's always a blast racing at the Tamiya facility. It was also nice having the Nor-Cal guys come out and mix it up with us So-Cal guys...EJ looked fast and so did Pillars, Corey, and Juan. Good run guys...

I just want to thank Fred and Tamiya for putting on the race yesterday. That was a lot of fun (hence the name). It's really too bad this track is going away. We should have more races like that. Great competition with great racers.

Congrats to all the winners.

Congrats to Steve Wang too for making the GT1 "A" fresh out of retirement. Good Job

Thank you Fred for putting on the "FUN" race Sunday. It was just that and I hope we can run a few more before the year is over. For the next event, I think you need to dock one qualify lap for everyone that did not read rule 6 or 7 (?) BRING STARBUCKS FOR FRED. Oh yeah, RUN REEDY !

Any idea yet if Fremont will have the track set-up on Saturday for practice ?

Hey Brad,
You may want to cruise over to the MSRA thread for info on the TCS in Memphis. This thread has been hijacked by the Fun Race.
