    That's gotta be the most reasonable explanation you could expect. Doug's a committed guy, and he wouldn't let us down if he could avoid it. Clearly, he couldn't avoid it! Give him a break, for Chrissake.

    Hence the Title

    I'm not sure that "unreasonable" is the right word, but let's try inconsiderate.

    We all know Doug and the consistently great effort he and his crew put into these events.

    Instead of assuming that everyone is goofing off and not delivering what you feel you were promised, why not assume that something went wrong...that something got in the way and that the results will appear when possible or convenient?

    Hey...that's what happened..Derek got sick and everyone else was too busy putting their place of business back together to post the results.

    In about 5 minutes some nimrod will be pounding the keyboard and asking where the pictures are.

    Let everyone catch their breath..then the results will be posted and you can resume talking about why the sport is either dead or dying.

    Sheesh.

    Just for the record

    The Webcam never went down or crashed on our end. It seems that if more then 50 or 60 people logged on it would it would dump certain people off. Some people got to see the whole thing with out interuption or clitches. We were monitoring it at the raceway and it worked just fine.
    We have gone through a lot of $ and time to perfect this but now my bandwidth isn't big enough. (story of my life)
    We will try and see what Andy and the rest of my computer geeks can come up with, without breaking the bank. Pay per view is interesting, lets see if we can find a sponsor.

    Smile Picture Please

    I only want to see a picture of Lil Brian getting his trophy. I'm sure his win will be one of the most popular ever.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Mike

    "Clitches"??? Even better, I used it in a sentence I am still working on waking up.

    Milton Brian loves his hat and bag. Thanks
