You understand that since you are currently a race winner and regular
podium finisher, that your opinion on getting trophies every race may
be a bit biased?

Uh, that was my point, thanks for making it again? Folks not picking
up trophies they earned every weekend.

Well, that also reinforces my point that bringing them a significant
group of "customers" could get us more leverage than we have with a

If that's the case, then why don't we have per-race trophies? The BOD

heard demanding them here are folks always finishing in the top 5 who,
you must admit, have a vested interest.
