I just wanted to thank Greg and everyone else who played a roll in bringing us the live coverage via ustream.
The coverage couldnt be beat !! Somehow, Greg managed to run the feed, give us up to the minute race reports, chat with us, and corner marshal !! Ron Hershman helped while greg marshaled, and we cant forget Mike Swiss who did a little bit of everything too !!
Mikes a great race director, and keeps things moving. It was great to be able to watch and chat with all our friends at the same time. A big hand to you all, for a job well done !! :clapping: :clapping: :clapping: Sorry, I know there are many more to thank. Maybe Greg will chime in when he gets a chance and name all the others who helped put this together.

Alright, who cut the cheese?

It seemed to work well from the raceway location. He borrowed my roll of strapping tape to hold the camera steady on our pit perch above the flat track and from the sales counter when the flat track was broadcasting. I could not figure out how to hook-up my in-car camera that I have used to make VHS recordings of driving on the track or as a live marshall-camera....another day.

Thanks again, Greg, for a job well done. Allowed me to view the races or what I had time to view.

The wire to wire video coverage was really something. Started off a little ragged on Friday, was a lot better on Saturday and Greg had it in HD mode by Sunday.

If you didn't see the F1 and Can-Am races on the King you really missed something...

GREAT job, Cheater. :D... THANKS!!

Thanks, guys. The stars all aligned to make it possible at a level I never envisioned.

BTW, Jay, Ralph, and I pulled into my driveway about 20 mins ago, after driving through the night.

More to tell later, but right now, I have a date with a pillow... Zzzzzzz....

Awesome job, Greg. Couldn't make Sunday's race due to family obligations. I was able to watch the races via the live feed. I was one of almost 800 viewing during one of the races.

Get some well-deserved sleep. Thanks again for all you do for the sport.

Greg also worked hard keeping people out of the camera during racing and qualifying. Good thing Mike killed off all the dust bunnies.


Once again, I had fun racing in the Windy City.

Thank you to Mike, Jackie, Ray, Noose, Jay, and Bill for you hard work and looooooonnnnnnnng hours in keeping this race going.
