Why i’m quitting RC

It’s a sort of sad day for me. I have felt it coming for the past year, but it’s finally here. The day I am quitting RC again. I say again, because some 20 plus years ago I did the same thing.

The Mendoza – McKune battle was over before it got started. Troy had the mechanical bug all night, and didn’t even get a chance to race a qualifier. Maybe that was a good thing, as Mendoza was on his home track and on fire....
