Oh wow, I just read this I am very sorry to hear this, my heart felt sympathy goes out to his family and friends. This is just very sad, after seeing him at Revelation for JBRL round 3 only a few weeks ago.

So hey Judi, hey Scott. How's everything with team Banzai doing. I haven't been in here in a looooooooong time. Just dropping by to say hi. Still no electric offroad here in Oklahoma. Guess you guys are going strong over on the west coast. Wish that was here, hehe.

Hi Steve, very difficult week for Joe's family, and so many

people who loved Joe.

I think there is going to be another memorial

race for him, I will let everyone know if that happens.

Harjo, good to see you post! I miss you, going to the "g"

word. Maybe soon you'll have some electric in your area.

I just checked Liverc and they haven't posted the final finishing

order yet. Need to get Ryan's. Felles won the B in 4wd mod,

that I saw. But the triple mains make it hard for me to figure out.

Happy Father's Day to all the Banzai Dads!

Judi

Wanted to thank everyone at Banzai for the insane horsepower this weekend at the nats. It was so much i had to actually try 5 cells to slow my car down

I would also like to apologize for my poor performance. When things dont go right, they really dont go right. lol. Time to get ready for the next race and make up for it.

And a special congrats to Ryan Dunford for putting his cars in all three a-mains of the classes he ran! It was a total pleasure to meet and hang out with you at the track. Looking forward to the next time. He is a true class act and a great representitive for any company.

B'Ner, it was all my pleasure man. It was one of those weekends for a few of us, haha. Thank you for all of your help this weekend.

I did OK this weekend considering I was driving poorly for me. It was a tough week being away for my b-day and all but the K guys took care of me.

I got 4th in 19t 2 wheel and stock 2 wheel. I got 8th in 19t 4 wheel.

Great job sir!

I know you were trying hard. You needed a little Banzai power to give you that extra boost you needed in those tough conditions. On to the JBRL and the shootout!

We don't even want to start talking about motors. I went through 9 motors this weekend between stock and 19t and I had to use 3 of them. Out of the 9, only 1 did not rub. The other two I ran rubbed the least of all I had tried. Hard to drive consistant with a strange reacting motor. But I blame me for the driving, not the motors, DOH!!

We all know how hard it is to compete at that level of competition when your stuff is not up to par. I applaud your efforts for not giving up. It showed in your results. Even with all the issues you never gave up. This is shows great character!

Next year if it is on the west coast we will attack the nats together!

Morning all.

B'ner: There is "Never" a need to apologize. Win some/Lose some. That's Racin'. I want to thank you for going and representing Banzai. They'll be another one.

Ryan: Nice job Bud. Sounds like you had to deal with a lot of issues. Way to hang in there.

Morning Casper: How'd Charlie do out there Sat night. Does he know what he's doing. Did you guys run 3 heats?

Maybe Jeremy will check in later.

Scott

B'ner and Ryan, all that Scott said! We really appreciate the

efforts you guys made. At least you got to meet each other,

that's cool. We just go on to the next one. Thank you both!

I can't tell you how weird it is to sit at the computer and

scream for you guys as the times change! I told Scott

this is as bad as watching the races, which you all know I don't

do. But I couldn't stop watching! I watched you Ryan

keep fighting and fighting to get the A main places you got.

3 A-Main finishes at the Nats, not too shabby!

And I watched Jeremy's B win in mod. Really proud of all of you!

For those that don't know, the Roar Nats use hand-out stock

and 19t motors. Ryan, your hand-outs are one of the reasons I

have always disagreed with hand-outs. 9 motors, and the armatures

are rubbing on the magnets! Ok, I won't go on a rant, but that's

just WRONG!!!!!!!

Glad you're all home safe!

Judi

Charlie did a great job. There were some issues with the computer (stuff Jeremy has been complaining about for a while now that Charlie had to figure out) so we started a little late but once it got rolling it was a great day of racing. We did 3 rounds of quals and the mains. Everything ran real smooth and Keith had the track hooked up! He busted his butt to put the track back together after the 8th scales tore it up AGAIN. He had it dialed again as usual though for us 10th scalers. My 13X4 worked flawless all night running 6 min heats and gave me plenty of power to run some super fast laps. I layed down a 20.5 in the main on bald tires.

Turnout was not bad. We had 5 heats and some great racing.

We missed you out there. Hope you had a good time at the concert though.

Will we see you out in Hemet this weekend? I will bring a case of water and Ryan and I will help set up the new canopy!

Jason and I stopped by Pegasus on Saturday.

This was a real shocker, Casper got Jason to put

in a few laps on Casper's car! He was pretty

"rusty", but all smiles!

As Bean said... It was a pleasure racing and pitting with you Ryan. And yes those handouts were horrible. The ones I have the arms are probably still good but the cans are gonna find a special home. We decided on the 7.5 hour butt haulin trip back that we are flying next time lol.
