Ted Schumacher, 

Since you addressed me specifically, I wish to reply.

There are several of us that DO what we do in racing, for a living. 

If it wasnt for our businesses (that we work very hard at) we would not be 
unable to participate in this expensive sport.

Additionally, we also provide products and services that have elevated the 
value of the sport, in terms of performance and safety for our customers. The 
value is supreme to us, also, for the friendships and camaraderie that we 
receive in return.

I am planning to release a significant product in 2007. I dont plan to make 
any money at this particular venture, but it is my passion & it is my 'living'. 
However, part of my mission at PRI is to meet with various folks, including 
media folks that will be covering the story.

Finally, I am also attending PRI as a Manufacturer's Representative.  One 
large company I represent is able to provide low cost high quality products 
can be produced in low volumes to the benefit of all forms of racing.  I 
expect to be very busy while there. 

I wish you well at the show.
