Absolutely great race in the 3C's Keith!!

That 3C race was the fastest ever. Bryan as usual was too fast to catch.

It is so nice to see a happy face of Paul.
Thanks a lot, Keith, for the great race report.

Good Hard Body Racing,

Haruki :) :victory:

Haruki, it was great to see and race with Paul again. He traveled quite a distance to be at the Nats and we all had a lot of fun.

It looked like you guys had a TON of fun! The Sprint Cup cars were beautiful!

The new Sprint Cup class does have a lot of great looking model kit bodies available. There are also 9 AMT kits which have pre-painted bodies which are beautifully painted and detailed, great for beginners or anyone who doesn't have the time (or patience) to paint their own bodies.

Great FUN day Keith!! Thanks for all your reporting!!! The 3 C's WAS fun until my motor smoked in the end of the 7th heat!! Great run by Bryan, Keith, and Gonzo for the podium!! ALL the class's were fun---although it may be time to say goodbye to the 36D cars!! Far more participation in the little TSR motored class's!! 36d's are a thing of the past---just a thought!!
She's real fine, my 409!!!

Many thanks to Keith for his efforts in setting up and running this event.

The 3Cs was a great race with Tim, Bryan, Keith, and Hector setting a really fast pace, to bad Tims motor quit while he was leading. I do want to thank Tim for his help in the pits with my gearing problem.
