Default Racing under the lights this week - August 5th

We are breaking out the lights again this Wednesday. The Four Seasons Trans Am crew said that they would be there, and some TC racers from up north said that they were going to be coming down.

Come on and get in some more practice for the Summer Sizzler.

Track Opens at 4:00
Racing starts at 7:00

2 heats and a main

See you there.

I don't think I can make it down... I need to get some stuff done before Friday and time isn't on my side at the moment!

A few others should still be heading down though.

I'm not racing but I should be down to check it out. Brian wants me to try and get some pics of racing under the lights, so I'll see what I can do.

I was thinking of swinging down but now my car is in pieces on my living room table getting new parts for the sizz this weekend. I'm going to make one of these races this year!

Botch, you still racing or just spectating these days? I'll let you know when I'm coming down so you can find something else to do that night!

Default Results- Wednesday August 5th

Attached are the results for last night's race action.

We had another fun night under the lights at Four Seasons. Two heats and a main and done by 9:30.

The Trans Am class is still growing and is a great class for our new racers to get their feet wet. Mike Brown checked out during the main, but there were some great battles in the back of the pack. 2nd through 4th swapped places several times throughout the race, but Greg Jones prevailed when Al's transponder fell out.

Mark Tveten is still the man to beat in 13.5, and I'll have to figure out my slow motor issue if I'm going to ever have any chance of catching him. Eyria was able to lead Mark around the track for 5 laps in the first qualifier, and it was too bad a breakage kept him out of the main. Gould is going to be fast once he gets his on road legs under him again and stops hitting those pipes, and Albert was rocking his new Xray.

NEXT RACE UNDER THE LIGHTS WILL BE AUGUST 19TH

Racing Every Saturday as well. See you at the track.

I think it may be the other way around. Maybe Botch didn't show up because he heard you weren't going to make it. Hope to see you guys down here soon.

I'm heading out to the track. Looking forward to the big shady trees over the track to cool me off. See you there.

Thumbs up

Brian/Mark,

Won't make it tonight. My car's alarm broke down. I can't turn it off.
Perhaps, I'll ride my bike to check out the race.

Sorry to hear about your car. Didn't know that you rode your bike out last night, very cool.

Trans Am had an awesome battle last night with literally 10 lead changes and Greg Jones pulling it out in the end. Any one of the top 3 cars could have taken the win. It was great to see Mark Brown down racing 13.5 sedan with us, and hopefully we will see him again soon.

Thanks everyone for helping to keep the race running. When the Four Seasons staff is busy inside the shop the racers do a great job keeping everything running. Thanks Daniel for blowing off the track, Al getting the computer out and calling some races, Greg for helping with the lights and packing things up. Thanks Mark for helping get Daniel going and for sharing your Tekin settings with me.

I seem to have left my flash drive in the computer, so I'll post some results later today or tomorrow.

I'm going to be out of town for the next couple Wednesdays, and there are no more Wednesday night races scheduled at the moment. Some of the other night owls are talking about trying to organize another one, and if it comes together, we'll let you know.
