Good to see you back, Mike "Who"!

I missed Saturday due to a load of "honey-do's" at home, but next month I will be there for sure.

I believe Mike will be participating in the enduro on April 30th (Sterrett's team). Is that correct Mike?

Not prepared was the truth as my 1/32 car had run two races and just got oil and a new pair of tires. It's probably ready to die because the motor did seem faster.

The LMP car was a bare chassis when it came in the door. Foamy slaved over his bench Friday night to bend it to a semblance of flat and then assembled the whole thing from parts Saturday morning.

It was nice having the Fresno guys come down for the race. Fresno may be getting a flat track to go with their hill climb from what they said.

I'll be there next month and I expect so will a lot more competition.

All of us Fresnoids enjoyed last weekend a ton. It was a lot of fun racing with everyone and we want to thank everyone for making us feel welcomed. I unfortunately will not be able to make next month but I am shooting to be back for the June race. Hopefully we can put together a bigger group to come down and race. Either next month or for June. Thanks again for the fun.

Tim, you are always a welcome addition. The last time I doubled up wins was

I did manage a win tonight in the 1/32 Class with the same car minus the lead weight and with front wheels added. The other racers were polite enough to crash on the other side of the track away from my car all night. It must be noted that notables like Kravitz, Duran and a couple of fast guys named Dennis weren't racing.
