I thought it was a great weekent too to add to the word of the day

I had major engine trouble in the 1/8 class, I think I'm 2nd last in the entire race, or something horrible like that. I finally switched the engine which ran great... and stripped the clutch bell

Truggy was AWESOME, I'm just glad I finished the A-main

The start was CARNAGE lol, but it was cool still to watch, not to be in

i'm happy i flamed out. Man that start was dangerous and it was like Dave wanted to see CARNAGE. But the truggy A-Main i would have to say was the worst for that corner lol. The track conditons turned out to be pretty good too. Overall great weekend and I can't wait till next year. I'm just happy i finished my main with all the problems I had (thanks to Gump).
I support Global Warming. Cold Weather sucks.

No problemo, shorty. Glad to be of assistance.
Awesome weekend, everyone!
Big props goes out to Dave McLean for putting on a wonderful show, the track crew for busting their asses both way before, during and even after the event, the guys running the event behind the computer and on the mic, the Lions Club for the great grub, all the wonderful sponsors who made great donations to help make the event a big success, and everyone who pitched in to help the guy next to them fix their stuff, get on the track or finish their race, or fix the track or any other thing they did to help out - awesome stuff!
Special thanks goes to Holly for not ripping the arms off our Wookie after he lit off fireworks (we really need him to help fly the ship) and for allowing all of us to hang out in her back yard and play with our toy cars in the sand box all weekend long!!!

The final is coming up in just under 2 weeks. Y'all better watch out for Eat Dirt Racing Inc.!!!

it was deffinatly an awsome weekend, I finally had a race that I didn't blow a servo, motor, or my radio, so thats always a good thing, lol

My only complaint was the starting gate thing, it wasn't even so much the gate, or the big crash, but with like 5 guys running around trying to get everyone going straight, you coudn't even see your car, and to me it was just a really dangerous position to put the marshals in, 10 guys all trying to get going as fast as they can, and they can't even really see their cars, not a good thing IMO, another thing was it gave some drivers a chance to jump the track to avoid the crash, and with all the chaos, no one noticed, but it DID happen, but I'm not going to name any names, they can live with knowing they cheated and got away with it,

thanks to everyone that made the race possible,

Yup it was a awsome weekend, minus a broken battery pack, and steering horn it was good. The track was awsome wish i could have done better lol. Congrats to everyone who won, and also to the bump up king " Ben wheeler" that was awsome almost 3 hours running.

What a great weekend. I think we should all be happy that we didn’t get more rain than what we did. Also it was nice to get out of the track at a better time than last year. The races were run smoother as well. I was the in the 2nd qualifier in the 1st round and when there was an hour or so delay I thought to myself, “Uh oh, here we go again.”, but after that pretty much everything went relatively smoothly. Thanks go out from me to EAT DIRT racing for getting the track in great shape so we can run. John, Dino and Ron for being great on the mic. Also I would like to thank all the sponsors and Hobby Craft/ Darren for giving me the opportunity to run for Thunder Tiger this season. I highly doubt I will be in Niagara because of College starting up this year and I really want to focus on my studies. Also thank you to all the great people out there that helped me this weekend, Joe Parent, Vic Garcia, Chris Buckrell, Darren Altbaum, Rick Endler, the Zontas for the servo (you guys are by far the most generous people in this great hobby), Steve Powling, Matt Devries, and last but certainly not least JakFrost and RCPARTSOURCE. If I forgot someone, I am sorry.

I personally had an OK weekend. It could have been much better if I did lose my steering in my 3rd qualifier, but hey stuff happens. I had a great time in the main. Joel and I were battling back and forth it seemed like for 3rd place but unfortunately my fuel line split on me.

Nice seeing all you guys again,
