This is very nice to see :)

I have 'banged the drum' of 1/64 scale racing since 2014, and there were lots of people banging that drum long before me, here on RLD.

Good luck with the Birdco 500...the first race I ever hosted was a rip-n-race. By leaving it wide open, I'm kinda curious what will win...I'm guessing it will be a Caddy16 fte, a Way2Fast fte, a BWF Camaro, or some other known fast car. But, it will be fun to see.

I'll be popping in here every now and again to see how things are going...and, hopefully, I'll be able to do some hosting once my life settles back to 'normal'.

So, good luck continuing to grow the sport and your channel...and banging the 1/64 scale drum! I feel like the sport is in safe hands
