The East Coast and Midwest represented at the 2010 Checkpoint Cup

We had a chance to film the East Coast and Midwest legends, John Gorski and Howie Ursaner, as they shared their recent wins and experiences at the 2010 Checkpoint Cup. These guys are true showman and are ready for Hollywood! Thanks, guys; you both rock!

Check out the performance:

John Gorski & Howie Ursaner at the 2010 Checkpoint Cup

(Note, the video is a low resolution version for quicker online viewing.)

The upcoming DVD we are making will include additional John Gorski interviews where he talks about his favorite moments of slot racing's Golden Years.

I'll be uploading additional video clips soon.

First of all I would like to say Thank You to the interviewer's who added meat to their own Dvd and Cukras you are the MAN and you are the :big_boss:,
P Zimmer you are a great and Thanks to Terry Schmid for your memories what happened way back. ;)
In my book you are true Legends and thank you for sharing your memories, the good stuff is on the tape. :laugh2:
Howie love ya man and Gorski you did it man proud of you. ;)
Love guys that made history way back then so the slot cars is still alive because of you guys.
The real man behind of all of this success is Bryan Warmack with his loaner cars the visitors would have been toast, :laugh2: Bryan you are in a Class of your own a true Gentleman. ;)

Fred,

The medicos tell me there is no cure for it, like herpes.

Do you know this one?

What's the difference between herpes and true love?

Herpes lasts forever...

LOL!!
