    I am reposting this statement from Clint Thompson which was originally on Facebook:

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE. As of today I am ending my affiliation with NOONAN RACING. After 15 months of getting nowhere towards our goal of moving to SC and working full time to help make their business better I have had enough. The Noonan's extremely loose relationship with the truth, the lack of a customer focused attitude towards their business, poor customer service, and extremely poor communication has led to this point. I have made many sacrifices during the past year to make this happen, including missing an entire season of racing, but I am over it. I urge all of those who are in the market for alcohol hemi racing engines and parts to consider that integrity, customer service, parts availability, and access to quality repairs in a reasonable time should be high on your list of priorities when choosing where to spend your hard earned money. The performance of the top cars in the alcohol fueled classes will demonstrate that there are several choices available that all make about the same power. The difference is in the service and respect that you will experience, and long after the shiny bling of the fancy finish has worn dull, you will still be dealing with the manufacturer. Choose wisely my friends. Peace.

    Clint is more than welcome to post his opinion here.

    I have been running Noonan Racing products and service since 2009. I am still proud to be associated with them and will stand behind their products and services.

    I have no ill will towards Clint and respect his decison. I have also spoke personally with him. I enjoyed working with him while he was working with Noonan and wish him the best of luck in future endeavors.

    Unfortunately Clint is correct and there are many many people that have had and are going through issues with them now. Their customer service is horrible, I am not sure they care either. Clint was the best thing they had going....The new guys lie just they same as Renee and Jamie do.

    AJPE, BAE, MBE are way better options. Service, honesty and integriy go a long way. Like Clint said the bling wears off and you have zero service with the Noonans.

    Typical Clint whining again, you know I get things don't work out some times but he is always the one to act like a two year old. Sometimes walking away in style makes you a little bit more golden!

    at least I use my NAME on everything I do on the internet so people KNOW it is ME whining Hemi101. My post was not about whining , it was about letting my friends (and even asswipes like yourself) know what I am doing and to warn them to use caution with dealing with the Noonan's because they will look you in the eye and lie when the truth sounds better.

    I've known Clint for a long time and I don't recall any "whining" from him or his camp. Clint's word is good enough for me. Hemi101 should post his real name so we can judge for ourselves what his perspective on this is. Otherwise his posts are irrelevant.

    Carry on.

    I have raced at the same events in TAFC (and later inTAD) with Clint since the late 1980's, so about 30 years...OMG. We have shared opinions on topics from Presidents to Piss Ants but I have never heard him "whine" about anything in all those years. Clint is a stand up guy in my book and if he were to tell me to watch out for something, I would have every confidence that I should pay close attention to that advice.

    The only time I've seen Clint whine was in Bakersfield one night and we both were "whining" when we ran out of Crown Royal...

    Clint always tried to help with my NRE issues and was the only one there I could count on to do what he said. He even helped with my NRE stuff after he left. Clint is A+ in my book
