Full Q results are posted on the main site.

Winners so far:

Masters 1/12 - Chuck Lonergan
Stock 1/12 - Alex Lopez
Stock TC - Chuck Lonergan
Modified TC - Mike Blackstock

Mod 1/12 I'll have for in about 8 minutes. Blackstock won the A1, Cyrul won the A2.

Not having the best of luck with pics today, everybody in the show is wrenching pretty hard, I am trying not to bug anybody too much.

He finished somewhere in the middle of the C Main.

Myself, I just missed the C, and finished 4th in the D. Pretty freaking pathetic. I was so tired this morning I could barely see the car on the track, I was lucky I didn't hack anybody to death.

I could have done SO much better, but I guess I can't complain for being an unsponsored chump at his first nationals race. The Top 40-or-so guys are all sponsored, more or less, with most of the top 15 guys having full rides. Crazy stuff for a stock class. Makes me feel a little better that I was less than a full lap off of their pace.

Mod 1/12 is up next.

Mike Blackstock takes 1/12 Modified in a close race. It was Cyrul's, but with less than a minute left, he got nailed by a lapped car and that was the end for him.

Attached are the full main results. I will incorporate them into the site later tonight.

More pics to come also, I got to hit the road now though. Enjoy!

Me and Stephan pitted next to each other, so we helped each other out this weekend. He decided the XRay had too much flex for the insane traction this weekend. Also, Steve was pretty limited on practice compared to most of us. I'm sure if he could've been there on Tuesday-Wednesday, he would've made the B, possibly the A.

Also, I've gotta thank Steve for hooking me up with some horsepower! I finished 2nd in the stock B.

I'm back... barely.

Speaking of lack of practice, on the way back I was thinking about it, and I ran a total of 9 packs on the track all week, all 5-minute sessions except for a couple 6-7 minute ones on Wednesday. I ran 2 practice on Wednesday, the 2 practice heats on Thursday, the 4 qualifiers and the main.

Can you say, "holy lack of track time," Batman?

Next time I will make JeffC do all the data entry for the results. haha

Good job everybody who was there. The local guys from our area all did awesome. Brad Johnson finished 3rd in the A after making it through some serious bad luck.

Can't wait 'til next year.
