    Ok , ...So it was still a lot of work just to get "pinballed" at the start ...

    As Kent did before me, I'm going to lay down my thanks here. On Saturday I got tangled up in practice, and the result was the whole front end of my car being bent about 2" over to the drivers side. When I opened the hood, I basically figured my season was done, as the frame was bent over so far that the belts couldn't be run without hitting the frame. Long story short, thanks to the efforts of many people, the frame got pulled back to a usable position. Thanks a bunch to Andrew and Randy for their frame pulling expertise, everybody who helped push the car around, and many many thanks to Bill for supplying the "frame straightening" equipment. I don't think there would have been a lamp post big enough to pull the car straight like with that truck. It should be noted that Bill even offered his Legacy for me to race if the Alltrac didn't straighten out. Bill Vickery, sportsman of the year. Period. Thanks everybody.

    Re: Saturday Help

    Didnt't see the point in starting a new thread with the same title, so just posting it here instead. Just wanted to Thank Kiyo and Dan for their help with my car on Saturday, had to replace the rad and after that Dan went out with me for a ride and showed me a few tricks. I know that Kiyo and Dan are not on here but I wanted to make my appreciation known, as I probably would have missed a race trying to replace it my self. Also Thanks to andrew for taking me out to practice and showing me a few tricks!

    I love ice racing for that reason, although its competitive people will still help you out, and there was a lot of that on saturday!
    I guess here might be a good spot for me to say my own thank yous and stuff, to andrew majik, brandon rashleigh, lisa and everyone else who helped fix up my door after it had been rendered un-shuttable. To my whole family of course for supporting me and making sure i didn't quit, PMSC for a great weekend, and everyone who lapped me, i know rookies are annoying to get around
    Id like to apologize for hitting a few people, I can assure you none of it was done on purpose - im new! hehe

They would not let me give up.. It was truely excellent.. and I could not ask for a better bunch of people to race with! Just a strait up thanks to a lot of people who kept me in the game!!!


    THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!!
    Josh, let me know if you still need a window. I'm thinking of raiding my parts stash in Hamilton for a Starter motor but that's not worth the fuel alone. If you need the window then that's worth the trip.
