Any news? Nothing is showing up on Race Monitor. Kinda wondering if there's any racing going on, or is everyone still hung over from last night?

What a finish.

In d class Bruce Motorsports tied with Drunken Squirrels so it had to come down to a one lap standing start for the win. Camaro shifted from 1 to 4th on the start and Cougar was gone ...but wait. Into turn 10 Camaro closed fast and Cougar over shot the braking zone...spin to not win.

Camaro ftw!!!! Congratulations Bruce Dave Jim and Steve on their 1st win!! EPIC CHUMPCAR

Had great fun! Of course it had to be fun, it was the first time EVER after any race or track day event that we actually drove the car up on the dolly afterwards - it did run for the whole day :blink: (well, except for when Peter talked me into not fueling up for the first heat... Made it back to the paddock but was mad for missing out on the first chequered flag ever!) While it rained real hard Peter kept up quite well with the other cars, in the dry we remained slow... We did not toast the latest ECU - either it was because I bought two new spares, or because we swapped the alternator and installed a huge capacitor?


As usual, we mostly tried to stay out of trouble but this time we actually managed to stay in front of the Shad. 19th, 11th, 11th and 11th. That's consistency! Couldn't at least one more car have pitted so we could have boasted about a top-10 finish?

Good driving out there this weekend!


 


Well done everybody!


 


I guess I need to look at the overall to determine how we did....


 


4th, 3rd (started dead last in the rain), 5th (started Dead Last), 6th (started Dead Last).


 


I think we would have finished behind Bruce Motorsports and the Rusty Cougar and probably RB Bank racing and Bavarian Mustache Works.  So, I am calling it a 5th overall.


 


Not bad with the competition that was present!


 


 


 


Thanks again everybody!

I thought start order was reverse of the finishing order, how did you start dead last?

It didn't seem like there were any particular starting orders, so I think Rob just wanted to go out as the last car so he could count how many of us he could pass during the first lap. (And he probably wasn't too worried about the competition in Class B either 😉 )

EPIC!!!!!  The race day was EPIC!


 


 


Anyone who opted out of this due to it 'only' being a sprint race should really reconsider.    Great format, a heck of a lot of fun, close, hard racing.   Oh, and a really fun track to race on!


 


Rob, how are your shorts?     Video certainly seems to indicate there should have been some paint transfer....  that must have been millimeters!


 


More to say (and show) later, gotta fly to Phoenix to warm back up.....
