  2. Thanks to Bang shift for getting the video out all day & night…. Keep up the good work…. Production of a event is a nightmare at best…. 💪👍

  3. I sat for 4 hours and watched the boring race of my life ,announcer should be fired all he talked about was its family no announcing who the drivers were and where they were found ,Camara guy needs fired also.and where was Alex Taylor no show?

  4. Awesome track congratulations guys, and thanks to everyone for bringing this to us live, I’m sitting here in Montana enjoying every run.

  5. Last I checked you cant go to a dealer and buy a "street car" with a tube chassis, twin turbos, blowers, nos, wheelie bars etc, not even on the option menu, you get my drift. where are the air bags, all the crash testing. just cuz you put headlights, taillights and a horn doesnt make it a street car. Most of them are race cars with all that stuff added. So quit trying to sugar coat it.

  6. I know there's always kinks to work out with these types of events, but I'm beggin' ya, please get the camera angles on track! I mean, this is sponsored by 1320 video. Surely the cameras can be dialed in. 
    1) Starting line 2) pan down the track for each run 3) zoom in on the e.t. boards so they're legible as the cars cross the line, then back to the starting line. Easy-peasy.
    If the announcer's gonna chit-chat most of the time and not tell us what the cars run (which is fine), we need solid video or this is a bit too hard for us fans that can't be there to watch.
    But thanks to BangShift and team for bringing us the footage!

  7. We heard the announcer say this year they're handing out 'run tickets' to some classes. They're limited to 3 passes only. That's a good thing IMHO. It gives more people chances at more passes who in previous years could not get to the track, others 'hogged' the lanes,, now they cannot do that which is a good thing for EVERYBODY.

  8. @48:45 the old 30's something sedan is too cool and we could see it's a shifter car. Hope we get to learn more about that car as the week unfolds. Perhaps it's been in other RMRW's but I don't remember seeing it before.

  9. Love it man thank you for shooting all this I only live a couple hours away so I hope I am in great bend on the 18th when you guys show back up to great bend and thank you to the supporters thank you thank you
