    The saltiest crowd known to man.

    Vanson put $15K into LRRS - that should be celebrated, not mitigated.

    Leaves a bad taste in my mouth, imagine how Vanson (and other sponsors) feel when they read this. You're all factory sponsored so no big deal, right?

    I wore my new suit in jersey, the last two lrrs rounds and Daytona. Also all the TTDs I did this year.

    What I hope any sponsor reading this would think is: aight, we gonna do this so no fuck ups.
    I try not to be negative nancy in life, but reality is reality.
    I also try and tell it like it is. With my own sarcastic flavor, of course.

    Re: Vanson fyi

    Let me put this in perspective.

    I did not market my soccer company this year.

    I plan to do so next year.

    I can without any doubt guarantee you that none of the negative sponsor bashers in this thread will be part of that conversation.

    Multiply my thoughts by...let's say 100 and you're now getting a glimpse into the business side of racing.

    Still wondering why there is less sponsorship support each year?

    My 2004 ROTY suit still sits unworn not because it doesn't fit ... quite the contrary, it fits very well and Vanson was great to work with back in 2005. My suit sits unworn because it is a trophy and I don't want to mess it all up by crashing the sh*t out of it. I'd rather buy second hand suits for pennies on the dollar and trash them instead. Sometimes wish they had just given me a trophy instead ... I would have endured far less teasing from garage-mates over the years.

    So, I had a completely different experience with Vanson ... but the same result.

    I don't have a horse in this race Chris.
    I can also assure you that when I represent somebody/thing as a sponsored athlete, it's the best somebody/thing that ever existed.
    I also don't take the time to seek out any sponsorship I don't physically need nor want to represent. Things have got ugly here in the past because I made fun of cats doing just that: pursuing sponsorship just to say "I'm sponsored".

    Chris,
    I suggest you search the forum for members' past experiences with Vanson...more specifically a thread titled "Vanson sucks" IIRC
    The audience is salty for a reason. Educate yourself on why that might be.

    With all the ball kickers in this forum, why isn't there an NESR All Stars soccer team destroying the world cup already?

    I miss that sport too... wonder if my knees would let me play again as an aging fatty?

    I take on sponsors in which I believe in the product and can really stand behind. I won't represent something that might not have a happy ending with a customer.

    I suggest you go racing and be quick enough to turn down sponsors like you're suggesting. When that happens, I'll be happy to have this conversation with you.

    Until then, I suggest you gobble a tepid bowl of dicks.

    I've known bergs as a racer and TD instructor for several years.
    Homies' been out the game a couple years, but he's as solid as they come, despite getting bitchy here from time to time.
    I miss me some bergs.

    Re: Vanson fyi

    A guy comes along and lets you know there's free money from Vanson sitting in a pile, waiting for you.

    End of the story - same guy tells each of you negative bitches to go unicorn yourself.

    ps - the money is still sitting on the table.

    Have a lovely evening, I will.

    Now you're just talking crazy.
    I hope you get a suit Lickedy split and it's awesome.
    Vanson has a history of being way off with their time estimates and being a hassle to get the exact product you ordered out of.
    I'm personally amazed they have the extra 15k to dump into lrrs, to be frank.

    Well, technically, they didn't dump 15k into LRRS. They awarded certificates which have no cash value, are not transferable and expire.

    Having won one, I appreciate that they did that, don't get me wrong, but it's not the same as if they had awarded me $200 cash per championship.

    Re: Vanson fyi

    Because you have so many companies awarding you any cash amount in the AM rankings or even EX in most cases at a one track series.

    Vanson awarded every single AM champion. Including P-89L. A class that had one entry this entire year. And I don't mean one competitor all year. I mean there was one person who did one race in that class.

    Who else does that?
    I am not defending them and I'm just saying let's be a bit more thankful for the effort and money they put in our series. We should be welcoming that shit not criticize it.

    I would love to see 1/3 of what Vanson did from helmet sponsors. I would to love to have a $300 *instert helmet company here for them.

    Or even a $50 certificate for gas or even the track restaurant.

    Shit man you don't like them? Don't use them. But they are TRYING to HELP our series.

    I don't care when I do or don't get a suit. I'm thankful they offered.

    Fallacy is a word used to explain why you think Vanson's history is what it is based off a tiny subset of users in LRRS.

    You're a good dude and I haven't told you to pound sand like Bergs but just like you said to me, you're way off. Vanson is the most respected name on the grid out west and in many global racing circles. LRRS is not everything.
