Hope you dont get too much crap for saying that, but I believe many agree with what you are saying. Imagine a class like SVL or Cat outboard getting resources like this!!!

on that note they get a lot of expousure for thier sponsor, but it sure doesnt make the rates go down.!

Would I like to see more competition? Absolutely.
Sure, Haggin is a special case
my hope is that other potential sponsors will look at what they are doing and decide to bring it!

The theory being "A rising tide lifts all boats."

Roostertail does not lie.

There are indeed too many sanctioning bodies and too many classes, but I don't see how you can blame the Geico team for that.
