Hey we like all the rats!
McRat, RaytheRat, and Noonan!

Are you sure that was a golf ball and not Noonan's head?

And thanks to everyone for great coverage. The huge gaps in info for Speed Week and Bub were tough to take.

Yeah but we had 500 entries, this one has about 10 big difference to cover. Dean next time you are at speed week visit the timing trailer and see what it takes to handle 2 or 3 courses 12 hours a day for a week. Slim , Ray the rat and others do a great job and we love it. I agree on the WOS it took forever to get the times.

Amen there. I watched El Mirage last month with only 87 entries and it's a bunch of work.

I wasn't so much complaining about that as I was amazed, thrilled, speechless, (maybe not so much), blown away, and based on the number of views, so was everyone else about what is going on here.

More! More!! More!!!

This topic has been read: "Read 9352 times".....
Very impressive......and bet it will make 10K+ before its all said and done.


It hurts me to read this thread.....I almost feel like I should be there trying to help out anyway I could with the broken rides.

The coverage has been great, my thanks to everyone there and their great reporting. If everyone would show their thanks by going to that little box in the lower left corner of the home page and send a few bucks it would help assure that this kind of coverage can happen again. I know how JonW hates to ask for money rolleyes so I thought I would do it for him. I love this stuff.
