I hope everyone made it home ok from the JBRL Race!

I am depending on everyone to post your results because I

wasn't there to get them!

I was dying to call about 3:00, and Scott said " Leave them

alone so they can race! " SOOOOOOOOO I called Casper!

But his recorder was on, so I hung up and called Chuck, he said

everyone was doing really good!! So, I'll just have to wait for the

results!!!

Here is what I know. Others will have to post there results.

Ryan Dunford TQ'd and won exp stk buggy. Casper got second and Ryan James got 3rd for a Banzai/slingshot sweep of the top 3 in that class. This points race is tight. It will come down to the the last race where only 4 points separate the top 5. I am leading but only by a small margin. It will come down to HRH.

19T truck I ended up 3rd and Ryan James got 5th. The good news is I wrapped up the title in that class this weekend. That means I can just have fun for the last race! That is at least one Banzai/Slingshot title at this years JBRL!

4 out of the top 5 in exp stk buggy are Banzai powered as well so there is a great chance of a top 3 sweep for banzai in that class.

Well, congrats Casper..... Casper and Ryan, and Ryan represented well as they always do.

I on the other hand was the weak link of the team:

3rd B-main 19T Truck
5 A Main Sportsman Truck

The Sportsman Truck Class is very close right now. Andy Cowan has put himself in a good position to win this class, but Kyle Boice (Banzia/Slingshot) finished several spaces ahead of Andy (Kyle 4th, Andy 6th or 7th I think). Even I finished ahead of Andy as I finished 5th on Kyle's heals. However Lousie Fernandez finished first which puts him ahead of me for 3rd in the class behind Kyle. I think it's gonna be a tough race at HRH. I better get my rest now!

Casper and Ryan--Special thanks for this weekend. See you guys sometime this week I hope.....

The racing this weekend was actually pretty fun. The track was very hard. I cannot remember the last time I saw so many people have such a hard time getting around a track! It took me 5 batteries to figure the stinking thing out! Everyone on the drivers stand was fighting to find a line through the large jump sections without crashing. Dunford absolutly dominated exp stk buggy. He TQ'd by 7 sec and won by half a lap. It was an impressive performance. Banzai Blue stock motor and Slingshot IB3600 batteries were the ticket to make sure he cleared all the large jumps with ease and pulled away from the field.

Sulivan had issues all weekend not getting a full qualifier in I think and was in the B where he broke a ball stud or something. It was not a lack of effort though.

I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Banzai and Slingshot for there support of me over the last couple years. I truly believe the support of these two great teams has really pushed me over the edge to become a better racer. It is there support that has helped tremendously to getting this 19T truck title in the JBRL. The 19T truck class is one of the largest classes in the series. My KD 19T motor has lasted me the entire the season providing run after blazing fast run month after month! Thank you Scott, Judi, and Jason of Banzai and Thank you Keith of Slingshot for you faith and support in me!

Now we will see how we do in the last race for Exp stk buggy. It think this is the closest class for the series. That race is wide open! It will be a blast!

I know this is our "fun" place on the internet, but today is 9-11.

Please take a moment to remember. It was a day that changed many

things for us here in the United States.

United flight #93, crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, heroes that

brought that plane down, saving many more lives.
