Yesterday began an exciting new chapter in Houston Area RC racing. Yesterday was the inaugral meeting of the Houston Area Model Drag Racing League (HAMDRL for short).
This inaugral event took place on the parking lot of West Oaks Little League, George Bush Park, Harris County, Texas.
Ten (10) racers attended - two (2) made the drive in from San Antonio just to attend this event.
Biff (Gary) was there early to set up the course. Shortly following were AC (AHR43), Kip (Slash) and his racing partner and wife Michelle (Moo) from San Antonio. Lyn (Bigmax) rolled in next with the doughnuts. Troy (TROY A) and his son Michael; Justin (justinspeed79) and his father Doug, and David Carter rounded out the attendees for this most auspicious first event.
There were a total of seven (7) cars fielded, including one Top Fuel nitro dragster (rail), three electric rails, two electric doorslammers and one nitro stadium truck. Biff made an early safety pass down the course to make sure it was safe to proceed with the event. Moo made the first official run downcourse in HAMDRL history. She made a blistering pass with her BoLink electric rail.
From then on it was a series of successive blasts down the scale 1/4mile. Biff's GMS Spec car running arrow straight, Bigmax pulling the leeever on his 6cell ProMod-so low to the ground you could hear the nose scrape once or twice. Slash's Top Fuel rail doing a wheelie through the speed trap. Justinspeed79 had the tune on his nitro ST right on and made three solid passes-he's gonna be a bracket threat.
We at HAMDRL want to extend a special thank you to Kip and Moo for making the trek from SA to run with us. Their enthusiasm for RC drag racing is infectious. We here in H-town are proud to be their sister club to the east.
Thanks again to all that attended. For those that couldn't make it, we'll see you next time-Sunday, Nov 5th, 10:00A.M.
