When the race was over Aja was able to claim TQ and 1st place so the weekend was not only fun but had great results. In fact all 3 podium drivers were on Sweeps and 1st and 2nd were running Clockwork racing engines

Big Thanks to all our Sponsors that help make racing FUN with quality products

Lol yep the opener was great. I was on a very used set of Sweep 45 exp with white inserts. I have been playing with tire life and trying to maintain the traction for the whole life of the tire. I have been using the Sweep X1 tire conditioner to soak the used tires with and then letting them set for a few hours.

Over my testing I have found that this will make your old scuffed tires tack right back up and hold true till you hit foam Lol. If you have a set of old tires that you have driven the good off of give this a shot and see how it works for you.

More testing to come but it seems I need to throw on a new set of 40s and give Spooky a run for it!

Looks like most of the Sweep GT team will be back in LA for the Novarossi race in July.

Also rumor that John Lee may be at the Byrons race in a few weeks.

Aja Teaches and cant leave till Friday at 6:00PM and Has to be back at work at 6AM on Monday No if ands or buts.

We want to come badly but this is why we signed up and paid last year but never made it.

We will see, but as of now 50/50

We probably to slow and competition to high anyway.
