If you think about it, without any serious competition how can someone better themselves. Pushing yourself to the edge and drive above and beyond your ablility is what racing is all about. That's the rush you get when you compete!! Without that, what's the point? A trip to Japan, I've proabably spent enough money on RC to go first class round trip tickets and then some!
You know what I'm talking about! Right?
Bragging rights! That will get old real quick!
This hobby is about competition with friends and alike!
I guess you should be flattered that someone thinks your skill level is that of a Factory Driver that they would want you out of the competion!
That will be the day when that happens to me! Yeah Right!
See you at the track!

Will ship to your hotel (or where your staying) free shipping.

...and now back to your regular TCS conversation. Good luck to everyone that's running at the nats this year.

I must admit, this last week and a half, this thread has kept me amused sitting here in China with all the what if's and conspiracy theroies going on. Now I know where they get the stuff for soap operas.
I hope you appreciate that the Entire Devin White Episode was solely and exclusively for your personal entertainment whilst overseas! Thank you, please tip your waitress.

Would be nice to see the ranking system up on line...but if I understood Fred correctly, qualifiers will be set up according to your single best finish in a regional event. Which means that Hicks, White, TA DA!! Vacek and I will be the first two rows of the A Qualifier. I think.

Anyway, nice to see that William of The Famous Vacek Racing Family, Winner of Laurel, will be coming to the Nats this year. Excellent driver, truly nice guy. It will be a pleasure to beat him. Maybe.

Hey Doc,

Just so you don't forget, please make sure to bring along my PINK fuel tubing.

I have searched high and low and can't seem to find any more that is just the right shade of pink. And we all know how important the color can be.

See you next week

Speaking of mini, I've got an extra set of tires to sell, if anyone's interested.

Doc, you should be the first for the following reasons...

1. you won at a track that wasn't your "home track"
2. you won TRIPLE A-mains (so thats like winning twice )
3. the SIR mains were 6 mins. long.

i think that should carry MORE weight.

Well, perhaps, but Devin also had to make it through triple A's. And I no longer really have a "home track".

But being in a Nats qualifier filled with TCS Regional podium finishers is sufficient reward for all that travel during 2007 to hit every regional race
