Definitely had a blast . Fun to actually race a bit and not have john lap us three times before the first lap is over!

Can't wait for the next series race.

Shawn, next time that happens, yell "TIME OUT!", run over a grab mine out of the pit and keep on going! This week, you might have had to wrestle Scott for it though lol.

If you need anything to get yours going again, just yell.

A few more races and I bet we can get the whole field down to a one lap deficit on John.

We already have some really tight racing. It will be great when everyone gets in the groove and we can have some 8 car freight trains.

I just hope my nerves can take it. Its hard enough with Mark on my bumper (or the other way around usually!) , John lapping me, and Bob Roegge waiting to capitalize on any mistake!

I know Sam is just a few adjustments away from giving me lots of grief . And most of the rest are really close to putting it all together too!

It is shaping up to be a battle this season! It will be fun!

Thanks again everyone for making 12th a solid class again this year!

My pits are an open book if anyone wants some pointers. Although you'll notice I'm going to Jon and Mark for tips myself - you might want to skip me for one of the Yoda's of 12th.

If you don't make it there next wednesday, wait for the second Series race on Sunday! I know there's at least four, if not 5-6 of us DSM area guys heading out there. Should be a full field of 1/12th... I'm already getting carpet withdraw syndrome NEED MORE RACING

I stopped by the track last night, It was a low car count, I dont know that I will be able to race on a weekly basis with 1/12 scale, but sure gonna be willing to try. I love that class, only one I have interest in on carpet..

Unless they wanna do MOD SEDAN?? Eh? anyone??
They got plenty of parts upstairs....

Last night was probably the smallest turnout I have seen. There are generally a lot more people there and often a couple more classes running. It was probably a combination of Halloween and some people waiting until the series race.

I would like to come up and race 1/12th scale tomorrow night in preparation for Sunday, but before I drive up from Lincoln I'd like to get a feeling for if there will be enough entries to make a class or not. How many have been showing up for 1/12th scale in recent weeks?
