    Nascar Concourse, I Mean Concours

    Thank you, thank you everyone. I'd like to first thank my concours advisor, Mr. Ronald Southern, who has put up with my weird burnt orange after doing so many gorgeous bodies in yellow and black...with side view mirrors of course. Second, many thanks to Sano Dave who graciously accepted just a $20 bill for picking my car. And finally to Mr. Lee Gilbert who provided the highly detailed wheel stickers that apparently clinched the award. I've said this before, but the Corner Climb at Mid America is just the most fun banked race track I've been on. Heaven for Speed Crazed Morons.

    The 2009 Winner of the Dan Artman Memorial Trophy is Greg Gilbert for his outstanding performances in the ISRA-USA classes all weekend. His name will be engraved on the perpetual trophy for this award. There are closeup photos of Greg's winning cars in the gallery if you would care to have a look. Thank you to Greg for providing his cars to me to photograph.

    Sincere thanks to all of the racers who attended and participated, thank you to the local racers who showed up on Sunday to help marshall.

    Heartfelt thanks to Andy Wasserman who donated his time to direct the races. Andy's the best at what he does and we are fortunate that he is in a position to help with events at Mid-America.

    Finally- thank you to Laura and Roger Schmitt for giving us racers a world-class place to race. See you all at the 2009 USRA Scale Nats.



    If you have a memory of this event or comment I would encourage you to please share it in this thread.

    Wow, that's a pretty good video, I have a lot of friends who have never seen this hobby I spend so much time on, it would be perfect to forward to them. On the tech sheets, a number of us were discussing how we don't see photos of winning cars (body off) any more. I remember 10-15 years ago that was the standard for Slotcar Bulletin. The race reporting you've done, MG, is totally outstanding and FAST! I mention the lack of tech photos and information not as a criticism of the NAM reporting, but I and many others would like to see a return to this practice. Many, many thanks to Andy Wasserman, what a great race director. Regor and Laura, you two make all this possible by running Mid America. And yes, it is a premier facility folks. I even had a blast on the Corner Climb, a little respite from flat tracking. Thanks again to MG Brown for his coverage of the event. Finally, all you racers are really a good group of people to be around. Herman and I were discussing this on the plane on the way home and we all have the common thread of being technically minded, and we are all craftsmen. Crafting something is for our generation and will inevitably disappear. That's why I encourage everybody to keep working at their craft, keep thinking, and keep showing up at events at ANY track. See ya at The Nats!
