Sorry to announce that Team Incidental Contact has cancelled our trip to the Eastern States Championships at Watkins Glen this year as I will be attending my Grandmother's funeral services on Thursday instead. Someone else will have to bring a desert to the BBQ. Also, NASA's "no exceptions" policy on not refunding registration fees after September 5th totally sucks ass.

My sympathies go out to you and your family. You will be missed at WGI.

Did you try calling and asking NASA for refund for extenuating circumstances?

I sent the event director an e-mail on Sunday (when Scotts grandmother passed away) explaining our situation. I was given a business like reply that the cutoff date for refunds was September 5th and I was 13 days past that. So we lost $1100.

There would have still been enough cars to have a CMC championship race so I don't know what the big deal is.

For me personally that was the last straw for EVER attending a national championship event.

THAT SUCKS!!!! Sorry to hear about your grandmother.

Don't know if NASA is reading this but I once had to cancel 11 tickets to a spectator event because of a death in the family the day before the event. A couple days later I contacted someone who transferred me "up the ladder". A supervisor was more than willing to refund the tickets if we supplied a death certificate......maybe you can make the request again INCLUDING that piece of paper as proof you didn't just change your mind.

We contacted our regional director, primarily to let them know that we would not be there.

Thanks all for the sympathies.

I watched the race online. I hope it was more exciting to drive WGI over a number of days than it was to watch the final race. I was somewhat disappointed to see the race time cut short by 33%, the numerous yellow flag laps, the online coverage being stuck for long periods of time on camera views that showed absolutely ZERO on-track activity, and the podium ceremonies with no audio.

Unless NASA comes up with a national event at a "bucket list" track within a one day drive of the central U.S., along with a refund/cancellation policy that is more closely aligned with those of the individual NASA Regions, it's going to be nearly impossible to justify the effort and expense to attend another national Championship event. In the grand scheme of things, punching that bucket-list track card may be better accomplished by attending a corresponding regional event.

Still wish I had been able to attend.

Sorry for your loss Scott, and sorry you had to miss the event.

We will try to get some better video up soon. I was just there as a spectator and crew. Even as a spectator I had a great time. Even though CMC was only 6 cars we had some very close racing and times were getting closer every session. Since we had so few cars we got stuck in this land of misfit toys of a group and had to deal with many wrecks and a couple hondas who couldn't keep their engines together. So many sessions were cut short do to a blow up or a crash which made things frustrating. All in all CMC put on a great show and everyone had a good time and all cars came home in one piece. Todd's car was the only one to have some significant damage from the weekend, but it could have been much worse considering his broken axle. In the championship race he broke an axle and as a car was passing on the right they touched.

I should get some in car video up some time this week. Maybe some other people will get their's up as well.
