You would find the results at the Thunder site.
Thank You Mike and the crew had a great time racing a 24 hours race for the first time.Just wished I'd brought my alarm clock. Never quite made it to practice. Legends rules, maybe next year, the new RJSpeed LTO will be a class. Then it truly will be a 24 hours a day race for me.
See you next year - Legends racers!

Essentially what he is saying is that boosted speeds are closer to and in some instances the same as running full blown modified...I agree with him.

There was a 1 lap difference between stock and expert TQ, and a 1 lap difference between expert and mod TQ. Lap times were only a couple tenths off between each class. All 3 classes have their place in racing.

I think it was 08 since I was last able to get out on the national circuit. It sure was nice to see everyone we know from the trade shows and big races.

I have to say I took a much different approach to this race and instead of going in with a performance desire I wanted to have my little buddy to enjoy his first trip to the big show. I can say that I was able to enjoy the whole week and have no self induced performance issues It was quite thrilling to see the enjoyment as I watched my son run around the track on a personal best run in the main. fighting traffic and truly enjoying his race at his level... That is was is truly great.

I think he wants to book next years plane tickets already.

I don't understand the question, but I think what your saying is it doesn't matter if its blinky or boosted, if it uses a 17.5 motor its stock, but stock blinky would suck in your opinion

your last sentence was incomplete let me help

Stock does not = novice, and that includes blinky stock.

Hi Fred, hows it going, if you were to look up my local track on you tube "fantasy world racing" you can see the size of our track, I have tuned a boosted 17.5 to outrun a 5.5 mod on that track. ain't no way in hell you can consider that "stock". just my opinion.

see you at Reedy, drinks on me.
