It should be going live on the web tomorrow once Fred is done writing the article.

I have better pics of the trophy girl, but i'll leave that up to Troy to post them after I send him the hi-res pictures on CD. This way my reputation isn't marred. Or you fellas that simply can't wait, just PM me and i'll send them to you from my personal email account. haha
Am I the only one who notices how absolutly aghast and terrified she looks in this picture?!?!?!?

I wonder if that smashed in nose will match the big mark on the side of my car from the 180 on lap 1 of that race.

I think only video could tell for sure who it was. Nice black mark about 3 inches long from the driver door to the fender and into the rim on the Lexus body. 8th to fourth to last in a matter of seconds. I had fast lap of that main so there would have been a little more pressure up front if the start was clean. Oh well, TCS '07 is over (except for three very deserving drivers) time to get ready for '08 !

I just wanted to see what it looked like. Where did you get hit? I don't remember the car he hit, but he got that damage from a car getting turned in front of him in the middle of the kink.

Jose was pretty dialed in the B main even with the punched in nose. Chris practically stopped his car twice to let everyone catch up. I don't think he realized how close Jose was until the very end.

I will try to take a pic later. I got hit at the 180 on lap one by a car that I am going to guess would not have made the turn if I was not there as their brakes. I did not get to see much fun up front after that. I think videos of all the races would be fun to see. I think Fred was to busy lining up the trophy girl and forgot to hire the video person.

Hebiki - you mean you forgot to turn on your in car camera ?

If anyone took video of the Tamtech on road "drift" qualifier, I bet the video would be blurry becuase they were lauging so hard.
