The broadcast will not be live - it will be a tape delayed until approx 10 pm. We're going to be editing together the highlights - think NFL Primetime.. just lower budget!

This all great news as I am still unable to travel to Bradenton. I will use all the information to keep updated. I see that the qualiying threads have also been started so all that has to be done is enter the times & speeds along with the racer's name. Great job!

While it is very much appreciated that you have this feature for us,
I'm a little disappointed that F/S, R/S & P/S wll not shown until elims.

Hopefully in the future, all the heads up classes during qualifying will be shown.
This is really great for those of us that can not make it out to all the races.

We will be posting qualifying and eliminations results during the entire weekend, along with photos, news, and rumors, of all classes, including F/S, R/S, and P/S.

However video of qualifying will focus exclusively on the Pro-level classes. It's purely because of time, there is only so much time to shoot and edit video. Adding those other classes would make it impossible to produce within the time frame.

You do know that the #2 favorite NMRA class per a 5.0 mustang magazine vote was Factory Stock?

The #1 pick was SSO

Just some food for thought. :D

Am I a retard or does the NMRA TV not showing right now. It is Thursday night and I have a very nice computer, fast broadband service and when I click on Tuesday or Wednesday coverage at the TV section nothing happens, just says loading on tv screen. I waited forever and nothing, usually I get videos in 2 seconds, what's the deal, can someone tell me if it is up and running or how to do this correctly. Thanks!

thanks for the reply/help. I have high speed also and it will not play videos. I did some research and found I do have the installed version need/macroflash 6, but it says in help it is possible my pop-up blocker will not allow it to be played. I clicked off the pop-up blocker but still no video. I don't know whats up, I can usually download all types of videos and they play instantly. I guess thats what I get for not getting all done to car and making the race vs. trying to watch on a expene computer I can't figure out how to watch the damn thing! Things anyway, if you happend to have any great computer input that might clarify I would appreciate, otherwise thanks and enjoy for me!

gperry, thanks a lot! I did some looking and found my spyware firewall was not letting me see this because of something called active x. I re-installed flashplayer and approved activex deletion through spyware firewall and BAMM, videos are now playing. Thank you for you suggestions, I really appreciate it. My car was almost ready for Florida, but Georgia will be my first showing. So this is great to watch, hope you enjoy too!!!:)

I was thinking the same thing. Could it have been fuel problems? I heard that a lot of the Torco fuels were failing. Something about the Spec numbers were not up to date.

And I like the NMRA media coverage but like the Others have said. We want to see all the classes covered. RS PS FS OC Truck MM are all a big part of paying the NMRA bills. These racers spend a huge amount of money and time to come to your races. They put everything they have in these cars. They deserve the respect

Tim -- we are covering first round eliminations of all classes, but there is simply not enough time to edit video coverage of qualifying for all of the heads-up classes. As it is, the team of four people has been up until 3:00 am each night editing for only 5 classes.

Starting with Sunday, first round and final round NMRA TV coverage will include coverage of all NMRA-Denso categories. Certainly all racers deserve as much coverage as we can provide, but you can assume that the faster/Pro-level classes will get more coverage on a general basis.

I haven't read through this whole thread, but would it be possible to get actual round results instead of the qualifying sheet? Some of us like to know the actual times run instead of their best pass.

Thanks!

How about mixing up some of the qualifying passes of all the clases. 3 qualifying rounds 2 different days. There has to be at least 90-100 RS PS FS OC Truck MM and Wild street cars that myself and alot of others would like to see as well. On that note I still think the NMRA TV is a big hit and you all are doing a great job. Keep up the good work and cover the whole event not just 5 out of 11 classes :D

What kind of axle is that on DeMorys car? Looks like a Moser to me. How many runs are on his axle? Hope he knows to replace the other one too. The only time i seen flange brake was 3 runs after car shook hard and slide sideways on a pro mod want to be. Some one should tell him to at least check [magnaflux-zyglow] other axle. What if it fails at 200+? Duffy

If you are lucky and know someone that was at the ctrack then you might get some info. Go to the site and look at how poor the coverage at the Orlando Race was last weekend. There was not even 1% of the amount of coverage that the NMRA supplied this weekend.

There was not even 1% of the amount of coverage that the NMRA supplied this weekend.

That would be because they only had about 1% of the race cars that NMRA had show up. :D

OK, seriously though.......I'm trying to save these vids to my hard drive so when I'm old and gray I can show them to the kids that I may/may not have some day and say: "look, daddy wasn't always just a fat beer drinking loser, he was a fat beer drinking loser who drove a winning race car for awhile....."

HOWEVER, I right-click on the links and my only option to save these baby's are to "save link as" which just does that.....it saves the link and NOT the video. Where am I going wrong?

03-19-2006, 06:05 AM
Ok, i just watched the videos from the race and i have to ask,why does NMRA allow the crew person to stand at the starting line while the driver does his burnout.i mean i can see if they were off to the side,but these people are standing right in front of the car ,what 20 feet away.what would happen if all of a sudden the car hooked,orthrottle got stuck.what are these people thinking?it wont happen?people need to use some common sence.if your not smart enough to stand out the way,NMRA should have you move.b4 someone gets hurt.DUHHHH

Oh nice videos though,Thanks

That would be because they only had about 1% of the race cars that NMRA had show up. :D

OK, seriously though.......I'm trying to save these vids to my hard drive so when I'm old and gray I can show them to the kids that I may/may not have some day and say: "look, daddy wasn't always just a fat beer drinking loser, he was a fat beer drinking loser who drove a winning race car for awhile....."

HOWEVER, I right-click on the links and my only option to save these baby's are to "save link as" which just does that.....it saves the link and NOT the video. Where am I going wrong?

Scott, I would say its all about the $Benjamins$, you know there going to need footage for the next 1320' Assault and if we all had it saved already they wouldn't make enough to afford a 6 pack. :eek:
Just my guess...;) I too would like to be able to save it also, though I am already old and mine would be for the grandkids to watch with me but at this time Sponge Bob is all they care about....:D

Keep in mind that this isn't the Official Company Policy, it's just me thinking out loud... Obviously, we want people to visit the website to watch the videos instead of just sending them as email attachments, because that helps us sell advertising on the site, which allows us to pay for plane tickets and hotel rooms for the extra guys we need to bring along to do the videos. We are planning on doing another "best of" video this year, and the quality is going to be even better than 1320 assault if what I've seen so far is any indication. All the stuff that you saw from Bradenton was recorded in what's basically broadcast-quality and brought down in resolution so that it doesn't take forever to download and view on the web. I think it will be worth the wait to have it on DVD at the end of the year in the "good version" instead of the limited streaming video format.

Have you thought about selling the individual races, classes, or passes at a smaller price? Kind of like the Photo guys do - only with video?

Great Work, and race.

I think you guys should take all of the new NMRA TV footage and make that a DVD at the end of the year! Way better than 1320 already.

I know that 1320 was not a race video and was good in its intent, but a "race coverage" DVD, a compilation of all the NMRA TV coverage would be a winner!!:D

First off, AWESOME job. Video/Audio production is my first line of work and you guys did a great job.

But, as far as your theory on sending videos around the internet as email attachments, I think you guys are missing out big time. I've told TONS of people to go on the NMRA site to check out the videos. Most of they haven't 'had the time' yet. But if I sent them the video in an email, they would click on it right away and check it out. Once they watch it, they would be hooked on NMRA Digital. Emailing videos is the absolute best way to spread this like wild fire. You also should look into getting them up on Google video. Hell, I saw a TV show the other day that was all about web videos that get sent through email. I remember everyone of them :)

Why not just email the link to the videos? Most email applications don't allow you to watch videos inside the actual app anyway due to virus software and ad blockers...

Here is the link.. http://www.nmraracing.com/bradenton06/mediaTv.php

You may email this link to whom ever you would like! Thanks for all the support! It helps pay off the 20 hours of work a day at the events to bring this coverage to you guys.

Next race will be even better! "Stay Tuned!"
