Billy Easton made the A Main in modified, he didn't race Super Stock.
The Problem with the 1/12th Super Stock race was the number of hits from the loop was almost zero. Hits are supposed to be 40+, but usually 20+ is OK. During that race they were 5 or less, which means you are going to miss laps. Since the lap times were 9.9 and 10.0, I thought it would be easy to fill in the missing laps, but Terry Rott didn't score on the final lap so his finish time would have to be estimated. I know he finished right behind Max. Terry said he would protest even if we were able to get the finishing results because "I did *hitty"
. Andrew looked at the loop and said the wires were crossed, and after he taped them down the signal was fine. A few races later we cut out the excess wire and redid the wiring, I didn't like the extra wire hanging out right next to the spectators.
World order was restored when Ray Darroch won the title by 0.848 seconds, which is actually not as close as the Mod 1/12th race last year. Good racing by Ray and Mike. I saw Mike at the airport and he said Ray definitely deserved to win.
The lesson I learned is: Start the day with a 'Z' main, then start the A1's right after that.
Touring Stock = Travis Schreven, Washington
Touring 13.5 Rubber = Josh Hohnstein, Wisconsin
1/12th Stock = Brian Wynn, New York
1/12th Super Stock = Ray Darrock, Virginia
Touring Super Stock = Josh Cyrul, Michigan
1/12th Modified = Mike Dumas, Texas
Touring Modified = Paul LeMieux, Wisconsin
Anybody notice the Midwest won 3 classes (LeMieux, Cyrul and Hohnstein), and California and Florida were shut out. LeMieux and Hohnstein race at the same track here in Milwaukee.
Here are the final results, congratulations to the winners!
