Scott....I think it could be the way of the furture for us to get out to the fans....the TV is great...but this is a great way for the fans to be able to follow live...

We have been working on some pretty cool things over the last 2 months and with the C.G. contract locked up again and NASCAR out of the way.....we have the opertunity to do some out of the box thinking with the backing now.....

Plus this is just another thing to bring to the TV show and takke our sport to the next level....

The #1 thing you hear at races are:

Who is winning.....
How many laps are they doing...
What place is that certain team in.....

Make it fan freindly and easy to follow....

This could take care alot of that.....

That is so true and with todays technology we are actually speaking to our team on shore and they let us know of any problems on the course or how far ahead or behind we are lol. So the "team" is truly the team. It saves time at the crane and we can let them know right away if we are in trouble. I get a sneak peek at what Scotty and the guys are working on and it is right out of star wars. Gino you lit a fire lol lets get this going. Thanks,louie

Forget the cock pit conversation, just have the engine sounds with the on board camera. Great idea.

I've been saying since mine and daves first race at Biloxi."Can you imagine if we had a camera on us and a recording of what we were saying".People would get one hell of a thrill out of it. Laugh there arses off probably.But at least they would see the abuse we take and how difficult it can be to drive these animals.I think its an awesome idea.You can put one in Adrenaline Rush any time
