I had not looked at this series because of the tracks on the schedule. But with the race at White House, well that is close enough.

 

I was going to attend the Can-Am race in April, but with what has transpired I had changed my mind. Then I noticed the announcement about OSS running at White House, and everything that OSS is running is just what I like. So I am going to get down to The Track, and do some testing then I hope to be there Feb. 13.

Andrew,

 

It says "Henderson, KY" below his avatar.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Yep, I am a good distance from any track, and then I am a bit picky as to what cars I want to run.

Defeat Ralph.
 
It has never happened, but maybe one day. ;)

I am not comming to beat anybody, I just love to race slot cars. What I like is the one motor rule.

In the past when I would go to races where people had equipment that no one else had and they blew everyone off the track... well, that was no fun for most. Having rules (and sticking to them), that keeps the competition equal which is what makes for an enjoyable experance.

There are always a few that can just drive their cars better than most of us and they have my respect. I enjoy racing with them.

I have not ever raced with RT but I will feel privileged to compete in a race that he has anything to do with.
