No, not jellous, because there's something damn cool about racing at 2am!

Wes, I agree. I think if you're going to run a slot car, run a slot car. If you're going to run a sedan, run a sedan the way it was meant to be run, on rubber tires. But I know I am in an ever increasing minority. I even heard a pro driver here saying he wants to get SoCal to switch to foams too...and that's indoor asphalt!

Thumbs up Well Done job Stephen!!!!!!!!!

WOW! this thread seemed to take off once again with our "All New Super Star!" Stephen Sobottka!!!!!!

AWESOME JOB AND SKILLS STEPHEN & SCOTT! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!

I guess our new World Pack HQ cells really worked! LOL

I can still recall the night I met Stephen during last year's Snowbird and I walked up to him and gave him a surprise! I knew he not only had the skills, wheels, and support from DAD, but he was also one of the nicest guy in the business. His presentation and professionalism in this hobby really got my attention and this has truly proven his worth! I am so proud of you Stephen! Keep up the good work and continue bringing home the trophies!

Fyi, during our Thanksgiving Dinner, every one of our Team Drivers was included in our Thanksgiving Prayer! My wife and I was so happy that God gave us this Company, this NAME, These Wonderful Drivers, and to share all this together with the growth we've seen in the last two years. As some know, it is NOT easy to become a Fukuyama Team Driver and many have tried. Those that we choose are chosen not only because they can drive well, but also because they are among the friendiest, most helpful candidated for this industry. Once a driver is picked to become a Fukuyama Team Driver, he is then considered Family!. Again, I thank everyone and especially our Drivers throughout the globe for their excellent acheivements. But lets make this special toast to our Stephen for the Win in Cleveland! Next stop Novak Race in Trackside, then onward to Snowbirds!

Dan
P.S. Stephen, I've sent you a PM with my cell # please give me a call so I can talk to you and your DAD!
