Great weather, great racing, great time. It helps that we finally won a race. :)

Seriously, though, Friday there were issues with the timing loop. But Mike and Brock handled it well, and the track went so far as to bring a concrete saw so they could lay a new loop. Stuff happens, but it was handled, and the Saturday race was lengthened to make up for the lost time.

Saturday was warmer, and halfway through the race, the tar strips filling gaps in the pavement started coming up. It was quite exciting seeing globs of tar coming at you, kicked up by the car in front. Or listening to it bouncing off the bottom of the car. The front struts both had huge tar balls built up where the spring seat overhangs the tire. Crazy. All the newly minted marbles made cornering traction quite limited.

All in all, a great weekend. Looking forward to HHR in October.

We had a great time this weekend.  The timing issue Friday was fixed in good time and the racing that followed was fantastic.  We finished 5th.  On Saturday, we ran well until about the halfway point, where we gave Night Fury a whack (really sorry guys).  We ended up with a broken strut housing and they won the race.  Maybe we should just follow next time.  :)

We also had a great time this weekend.  Dodging flying pieces of the tar/asphalt just made it more interesting. Had great times with all the drivers on and off the track, and appreciated all that the chump staff did to make this happen.

My team was discussing how you guys have really come a long ways with your car. Early on, that thing looked like an ill-handling, fragile, and under-powered pig. Now you guys are competing for the podium.

Nice job.

After testing ok the day before, the existing one was no bueno come race time. They tried to fix it, but it still wouldn't work. Track brought in a guy with a concrete saw and they layed an entirely new loop. Delayed the race start a little over 2 hours.

No complaints with how Mike and the track handled it. They fix the best they could. And Mike added 2 hours to Saturday's race.

As Alan said we had a great weekend, thanks to the ChumpStaff and volunteers for a assume event. The infield track maybe be small but it's an absolute blast to race on, but definitely no time to relax.


 


Tobey, We've steadily been trying to improve the car and the drivers ever since we started racing ChumpCar. The car's been coming along but not sure about us drivers  :lol: . Now we just need to figure out a way to expand our 18 gallon fuel cell to 36  ;) .

Well, it certainly cannot be said the track used half-measures. I am impressed.

We all pray we don't end up with 2 of that exact issue in a row, in the same region.  We all have spares, but these are the situations that use the spare, until we can order and receive a new loop :P.


Good to hear the issue was taken care of.
