    A big thanks again to Nathan Thompson for helping out posting the lap totals - while I played race director in the qtr's & semi's, and while I played photographer in the main! It really helped in bringing this racing "Almost Live" to you reading it on the internet. And again thanks to Roger Schmitt for more great pix, and to Prospeed for sponsoring the OWH Nats coverage!

    Question Paul

    The pictures aren't loading.


    Just the dreaded X in the places where the pics should be.

    Charlie....

    The pictures haven't been taken yet dude...

    As good as Roger's camera is - he still can't take pics of the winners before the race has been run!

    I made a Template for the race reports, and I'm filling it in and adding the corrected photo links as we get them uploaded.

    I was removing the link place markers, then adding them back, but it's a hassle.

    As of now - you should see the concours pic and I just loaded the qualifying scan....

    They are picking lanes for the Quarter finals now.

    I'll tell Roger that you would like to see the pic of the winner now, ok?


    Wait - here's the podium shot for you (before the race):

    Talking Oops

    Sorry...lol

    The page hadn't finished loading here, and an X had appeared implying (or seeming to) that there was a birthday pic of Benny up higher on the page.

    Now that it has, I see what you mean.

    P.S. Shut up...wise a$$.

    I've been trying to contact Alan Cohen to tell him his track record 1.804 held, but i guess he's still up in the air[in a plane]. We'll never hear the end of it!

    And the racers loved it! They would rather have done it this way, racing all day in quarter finals, even if they had to pay entry fee for "Phantom" drivers, then to have the dreaded round robins.

    The general concensus was that for local weekly races round robins are great for saving time - but at the Nats - they want to race for it!

    Paul Meiers said that he has submitted a proposal to dump the round robins from the Nats race format several times, but it has not made it out of the rules committee pre-meeting.
