This would be cool for next year.

  In the staging area it would be cool to have a pa system. It would be nice to announce the driver, what there driving, the class record there going for and finally there speed. I think i can get my hands on a nice portable pa system...hint hint dstray. But it would have to be in radio contact with everyone else etc. Would this be possible?

One more suggestion for next year, Bob.  Get some orange vests for ALL race officials.  Whether they are inspectors, crowd control, tickets at the gate.  People have to know that when somebody leans into their racecar on the starting line that they are not just interested bystanders.
