I  would like thank all the racers that attended, and made Sano 9, a success.

We had 35 different racers for the weekend, certainly way more than last year when getting open in time, in my new location, was up in the air.

Thanks go out to:
 
The plaque sponsors:
JK Products
KVP Racing
Manta Ray Chassis
Noose Custom Painting
Schatz & Associates Inc
Slotblog
SPR / Jeff Strause

The lunch sponsors:
Blackhorse Racing / Diana Dyckman
KVP Racing / Kevin VanPelt
MPI Probe Labs / Matt Sheldon
R&D Transport / Rodney Ziemek
Wanker Valley Raceway / John Austin

The prize sponsors:
Boogie Bodies
JK Products
Parma International, Inc.

Also, big thanks to Noose, Bill Fulmer, Greg Wells, and Eric Balicki for their help, teching, documenting, and running the races.

Ralph Thorne, for his terrific job on the plaques, and especially the Manta Ray tribute shirts.

My beautiful wife, Jackie, for her tireless job, the weekend, and days, leading up to the event.

And thanks again to all the racers who participated in a manner that would have made Manta Ray Price and Sano Dave Fiedler, our deceased heroes, proud.

Thanks to Mike Swiss and all the competitors at the race for getting it all together every year. While I wasn't there it was great to watch while it was streaming.

Thank you, Mike Swiss, for producing such a great racing event and certainly every person that contributed to its success. The competition, the tracks, and food were fantastic.

The people were the best, and keep me coming back. Plenty of room, a challlenging King track with clear walls, and the flat track that is just too much fun. More people should take the newly-named "Fiedler Flat" track challenge and test themselves. 

Can't wait for the next one.

Thanks again to all the racers for their kind words on the shirt, that was given to Manta Ray's widow, Chris Price.

She received it today, along with a few extra, "stock" shirts.

She called me and was clearly moved by all the great sentiments, written on the shirt.

What made it a little bit extra special, was her taking delivery while one of her neighbor's was visiting who could see how well respected Ray was in the slot car community.
