Dave Kodama (Caltech physics alumni, Class of '77) was typically generous in offerring his time/services for backup, in video-email support. Likewise, Joseph Dillon/DillonMotorSports.com also offerred his advice/support for Networking Issues.

This is a perfect example of TeamWork in action, the volunteer team at Jumplive.com is contributing to BITD's team, in bringing OffRoadRacing to the masses. Hopefully, we will be bringing increased Media-Exposure, via the "Alternative Model" of the Internet/Web (as opposed to the "Standard Model" of Television/Print-Media)..for the betterment of the sport of Off Road Racing.
