It just goes to show the DB Drag and other car audio events will soon be gone for good.... Car audio will always be around but I think that competing will be gone soon... Way to many people are quitting the sport... Sad day

Not sure, he said he will still be @ competitions demo'ing, but world finals this year was his last as a competitor.

Wow, hate to hear that. Didnt really know Tommy or heard his system before, but seemed like a really cool guy. Cant ever remember hearing anything bad about him.

people give up competing for various reasons

Tommy retired because he wanted to go out on top. Competition just became too expensive and tiresome. It starts to lose it's enjoyment when you spend thousands of dollars on it every year.

I hope to make it down to SBN and see tommy and his truck again one of these years. I got to talk to him quite a bit this year and he's a great guy and a great competitor. I wish him all the best and completely understand why he wants to retire.

I'm seriously considering it, but who knows what my situation will be by then.

SVR is one of the shows I have always wanted to attend since I started competing in bassrace back in 2006.

Not sure how much longer the poor little s-10 is gonna last though. Something seems to be up with the front suspension/steering. I guess 330,000 miles will do that to a car eventually. :laugh:

Perhaps I'll have a new(er) vehicle by then and won't be afraid to drive it on long trips to hit up the shows I've always wanted to do. :)

Well, you've got a few months to get everything sorted out, and I know you'll figure out a way to get there:laugh:
