Hi Everyone,


Just thought I would do a bit of an update for the North Regions first 14 hour race!!!  


The weather is gorgeous, a nice warm 24 degrees (that's 78ish for you guys that live here :)).  We started the race with a 40 car count and four hours in we already have two cars on their way home with catastrophic injuries to their cars.  Car 69 F.I.G.A. Racing who was driving a Mazda Miata MX6 and car number 170 Wheels off Racing who was driving a Ford Taurus are packing up and hitting the road.


The race so far has been a clean one.  Seems everyone is behaving themselves out there (although I am not privy to the corner worker radios) so far.  We shall see how it goes once the sun starts setting.


 


Race standings as of 12:23 4 hours and 23 minutes in......


 


First - Holly Rollers #66


Second - Spartan Racing #74 (two laps back)


Third - The Most Interesting Chumps in the World #122 (+ 1 lap)


Fourth - S**t box racing #600 (+1 lap)


Fifth - Iron Oxide Racing #75 (+3 laps)


 


I will try to update again soon.........


Wendy

Still in first place:  Holly Rollers - Acura Integra #66

Third Place - S**tbox Racing - E30 #600


Fourth Place - The Most Interesting Chumps in the World - E30 #122


Fifth Place - Iron Oxide Racing - Alpha Romeo #75


 


A few more cars are caputz - this field seems to have some new/newer teams that are learning the ropes.  Radios are pretty darn quiet and the pace car is not burning any fuel.  Juane (silent e) our pace car driver is bored silly. :wacko:

Sorry (out of respect to our pace car driver) Juane (silent e) is actually spelled JHUANE (the h is also silent)  he is apparently Mexi-rish a mix of Mexican and Irish.  He is a special guy, his hopes and dreams revolve around chumpcar.  


When asked 'what do you want most in life?' His answer was "World peace and to be a good chumpcar driver"  


Sigh, he can only dream...... :wub:

We have had some sporadic internet connections here at race central so I apologize for not keeping this up-to-date.  


Lights are on now, and as usual there are more than a few tail lights and head light issues.  Some are bright, some are not working, The seasoned crews have them up and running.


At 13 hours and 15 minutes here are the top 5 :


 


Holy Rollers remain in 1st place with 385 laps under their belts,


Spartan Racing has also maintained their 2nd place position with 380 laps and 3rd still belongs to Poopbox Racing who have managed to turn 370 laps


TFE has managed to stay in 4th with 369 laps and 5th has been taken over by The Most Interesting Chumps in the world with 369 laps

HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!


 


The race is under way under sunny skies and 29 cars started so far.  A few are in the pits working furiously with new(er) parts to replace so they can get on track as well.  


Lots of great, positive feedback from yesterdays race, the corner workers, ambulance, fire rescue and tow all commented that they had a great time after the sun set.  Wayne, the tow man commented that he has been working at this track for over 35 years and it was his first night race.  He said he took lots of pictures and as he will be retiring soon, enjoyed it immensely.


After 20 minutes the top leaders are:


 


Bucksnort Racing #125 (BMW)


Ghetto Fab'd Racing #99 (BMW)


Sh*tbox Racing #600 (BMW)


Spartan Racing #74 (BMW)


Jagerbombers 1 #199 (no not a bmw, but a Mazda RX7)


 


Looking forward to seeing how this will all play out!

Holy rollers are working off the penalty laps, should be an interesting fight for podium!

Awesome weekend! (except for the broken lower control arm on Sunday).


 


I had some great racing early Saturday with the White MR2 team and late Saturday was able to chase Andrew around in his rocket ship Honda.  Hope to get a chance to race with you all again soon!


 


Kent - as always thanks again for your hospitality at the ChumperCoach Compound!  You are good people and part of what makes our weekends enjoyable. Even if you are a TUN fan.
