I happened to hop on the site for the first time in a long time, saw this thread, and immediately felt the need to post in this. Not sure how many people will see this but I know the ones that do will be blessed with an entertaining read.
I joined this community in June of 2008 and as I write this it is the end of March 2019. For those of you bad at math that’s 11 Years. More than half of my life. Now granted even though I was only active for about five or so of those that’s more than I ever would have expected. I found this place as a wee little nine year old looking for a place to download some quality tracks. (Also ran into a fellow by the name of MikE Egan in matchmaking in halo 3 who was kind enough to get me on the racing scene). Fast forward a couple years and I get the urge to race on halo reach and shoot my boy purpledinosaur0 a message asking him to invite me to a racing lobby. Little did I know there was a HT Supercross race going on at that exact time and I was lucky enough to be a part of it. After having the time of my life a fellow who lapped me twice in that race by the name of sodapop invited me to a party and the rest is history.
I’ve made more friends through this community than I can count. And while only a handful still hear from me there are too many that I will never forget. Soda was the one who got me into the community and became the person I’ve probably talked to the most in my life. Countless hours staying up forging and racing for no reason except to have fun. My European homie in gogetarulez that I still converse with over Snapchat about our concert/party experiences. My boy Cameron Mead (Cassel) who constantly seemed to piss me off as a youngin, but grew to become one of the people I actually respect the most. The owner of this website, Jeff, is an awesome individual and I wish I had the money to buy nhl to play with you and rob. Pancakemuffin who shared many of the interests I did as we are similar in age and both trying to achieve the goal of obtaining a college degree. Kat2bkitnme, ionized, Mtndew, office, Edward, and many of the other names and personalities I came across during my endeavor on this website. A majority of my friends list on Xbox live is comprised of HaloTracks members and every time I hop on I’m reminded of all the memories I share with you all. All of the names above and of course everyone else I’ve encountered along the way helped mold my immature young self into the man I’ve become today. I owe all of you a great deal of thanks for providing me with some of the most fond memories I hold. HT Supercross will forever hold a spot in my heart and I will never forget the great times I had participating in the series. I miss all of you and I often think back to the times of me grinding for 8+ hours to race in a first person shooter where the lap times are counted in whole seconds. No regrets though. (Except for maybe wishing I was more mature at my time of peak involvement (I.e. getting kicked out of ht supercross for intentionally wrecking everyone in the race)). I’ve developed more true friendships on here than I have in real life and I’ll cherish that forever. I’ll always check in from time to time and love seeing old names to remind me again of the grand times. Hope to talk to any of you sooner than later. I love you all
