    I've followed this race the prior three years with extreme interest. I had the pleasure of meeting Mike and most of the Cover Leaf team awhile back and have been fortunate to get to know them better over the last year. As a first things 24 racer, I didn't know exactly what to expect. However, knowing the Clover Leaf group I knew it would be a great time. And ed it ever.

    The amount of slot car knowledge and incredible driving skill that was involved in this event was mind boggling. I an almost certain I learned something new from every racer at the event.

    There are too many specifics to remember or bore the general readers with. I will say that team CanAm welcomed me and by the end of the race I knew I had developed great friends.

    It is amazing at how you can build a friendship with someone just by standing/sitting next to them for 5 hours passing with toy cars. Art (DUM DUMS) and Eric (Cinci) were great to hang out with as we raced around the track.

    Can't wait to do it all again!

    Hello to all the racers in this year's 2014 Michigan 24 hour race. I would like to congratulate the Slot Car Corner Team for winning the race and setting another new world record. I hear that Smokeio from team S.C.C. can build fast, missile-like race cars. I would say that Mike and his family, the race host for the last 4 years, holds a world record also. Nick

    Team CanAm:canada: :USA:sends thanks to Mike and the whole Michigan gang for a fun event and fine hospitality. We had a lot of car problems that cost us hundreds of laps but our team certainly always has fun. My cars totally missed the setup so we forced James' car into service that it was not set up to do. We'll do better next year.

    Don said he video taped me eating more than anybody and yet I didn't gain a pound! Mike fed us well and it was such a good time racing with all my slot car friends.:nod:

    It would be great to have the list of the 20 best results from the past 4 editions.
    something like TEAM, DISTANCE, YEAR, from 1 to the 20th position.

    How did the second place Clover Leaf team did in comparison with winner of last year, or the year before?

    Thats the kind of info i like and it would give teams and aficionados of the race a mesure by which to compare results! :thumb:

    What do you think made the coffee Sunday morning? :banana:

    Great event put on by Mike Stott and the Cloverleaf guys, just fantastic!

    More to say, but I'm still traveling, and heading out to dinner with my mom in NY...

    I would like to start by thanking Mike S and all those involved for organizing and putting on this event. It was a pleasure being apart of this event. Second, I would like to congratulate SCC on their win and record, your team is truly amazing to watch. I would like to extend a special thanks to Dickie of SCC who I ran next to for 5 of the 6 heats when I was in white. You have no idea how much your encouraging words and comments meant to me, it was the icing on the cake for my first 24 hr race. I also want to thank the Cincinnati Slot Rods for having me on board. It was great running and hanging with you guys. You guys put a lot of faith in me by having me do the final tweaking of the car but I think it paid off. To bad our motor was flat from the start, but there is always next year, and we have a plan. It was also any honor to do the mechanics interview for you guys but I think that had more to do with the others being more camera shy them me.

    This was my first 24hr experience and I still cannot get it out of my head. I am still on the 24hr high and cannot wait till the next race. This race really taught me a lot about where I am with my driving, inconsistent. I have moments moments where I am in a groove but then my inexperience shows and I either deslot or do bad in a technical section. Spending 48 constant minutes on a track can really show you a lot, if you pay attention and listen to what your stint is telling you. I have taken a lot away from this event, ideas, encouragement, fond memories but most of all, new friendships.

    Thanks to all who participated and if I did not talk to you while I was around, I was probably still overwhelmed. I probably want to say more, but I get side tracked and forget things.

    Enjoyed watching some of the clover leaf video's... not sure if something is coming to recap this event, but the one done for last year was great.

    What an epic event to participate in. There's obviously a lot of slot car knowledge assembled in one place at one time a this.

    Wow, what a weekend!

    First, thanks to Mike Stott and his family for allowing us to race our slot cars in their home. It takes tremendous effort and dedication for an event like this to operate smoothly, and smooooooothly it went for sure. This event is top notch, folks, and we've never seen a more organized event anywhere. Mike Stott, Art Roberts, their families, and all of those associated with this event & Cloverleaf Racing dedicated themselves to create this world class event - they truly can't be thanked enough.

    I'm sure I can speak for everyone on our team - thank you Team SCC, specifically Mike (Smokeio) for helping get our race car to where it was on Friday. We could not have had a good car without your assistance and your loaner chassis plate. Thank you for the chassis flattening tips as well - I did not know a microwave does so well in flattening chassis plates. It explained the red & brown grease stains on the underside of the chassis - hot pockets?

    These tires were a bear for us to figure out, and I'd like to thank both Dave Postmus and Mike (Smokeio) for their assistance and explanations of their tire truing methods. Thank you for sharing invaluable information.

    This was the most fun I've ever had racing slot cars. Racing can be surrounded by a tense atmosphere at times, but this race had none of that. It was a very friendly environment with an easy-going race organizer that knew the right time and place to exercise authority. The result is a pleasant atmosphere and very happy racers - this is evident from the responses you see here after the race. Everyone was wonderful at this event.


    Congratulations to Team SCC for their world record setting race. They were truly a well oiled machine (over-oiled at times). Chuck Norris would not have stood a chance against you guys.

    Lastly, thank you, Rob, for organizing the cancer raffle. I lost my mother to breast cancer at a young age - this really meant a lot. Adding this facet to the Michigan 24 makes it that much more wonderful. You'll have my support in this every year whether I am present or not.

    With all that said, we hope to be back next year if 6 teams is still an option. Looking forward to the video Dan comes up with......not looking forward to Jason's life story on video.

    As much as he is a pain in the royal buttocks..... Hats off to Rob and his cancer raffle. That was a great idea for a very worthy cause.

    PS. I heard you yacking at me during the last heat but I IGNORED YOU! You may be the RAA GT2 Champion but I got your phone number and I'm calling your wife to tell her she's a saint. And stop licking your tires. That's not the way to true them.

    Also, did anyone get a picture of Kurt driving with a DIFALCO controller? That's right, Kurt had one of those controllers. You know, the type of controller that has all those knobs and whistles that make you go faster? What is the world coming to.
