Good Morning, Race Fans!

And welcome to the 2012 ChumpCar World Series, Central Region Chumpionship at Heartland Park Raceway

It's a crisp 52 degrees this first day of Fall (at 7:30am) here in Topeka (KS) and we're looking towards a solid 70-degrees this afternoon, with clear blue Kansas skies, no rain whatsoever, a light breeze from the southeast... and ditto conditions tomorrow. Great racing weather.

It's the "Best of the Mid-West" in a double-7, with all of Saturday's laps being combined with Sunday's laps for a cumulative total win.

Live Timing will be up a little later... and we have a couple of teams that are planning Live Broadcast from in-car cameras. Hopefully, they'll post that information here... or I'll try to get that info out to you.

Cars. They are a-breakin'.

Number 83 Mayhem (Honda Civic) is in the pits with the hood up. Number 84 (BMW e30) is in as well and his team is talking to the driver.and looking at the wheels.

Number 19 (BMW e36) is behind the wall with the hood up and parts on the ground.

The yellow Probe is also behind the wall with the hood up.

A Ford Escort is putting in a roll cage in the paddock. They have a chop saw and buzz box. At least they didn't wait until the last minute.

Side note, between last nights beers, yesterday's smoked brats and unburned fuel, pit row is an olfactory nightmare this morning. The guys upwind from us have wrapped their bachelor party into the weekend. Successive waves keep hitting us. I'm worried about ignition sources...

Number 03 EC (BMW e36) sheared an axle and lost the whole left rear. They are wrenching away.

#83 Mayhem (Honda Civic) has the engine lift in front of their car. Looks like a new motor going in. It takes these guys about an hour for the out & in as they are masters.
