Richard and crew. Finally found a few spare moments in my busy day to drop you a quick message to thank you again for the great time we had at Watkins. Dan and I really enjoyed the weekend with your team and look forward to next year. Waterfall should be proud to sponsor such a great team like yours. You not only treated Dan and I like VIPs as Waterfall customers but also displayed the Waterfall logo in a very professional and very visible manner. I don't know how much money they give you but they are definitely getting their moneys worth and then some from a customers point of view. Again I can't thank you enough for the great time that we had a look forward to next year. Make sure that you have work for me to do as I really enjoyed helping in the pits. Also make sure that Tim is there as well. Take care and best of luck in all your races. I will follow on Facebook and your website.

Working with NASCAR and F1 teams is fun, but it’s even better to support a local racing program that is developing into one of the premier teams in their division.
