What a day today. The car count might be down a bit but the competition was high down to the last main and we just beat the rain to get finished for the day. Emily had a good run going for her first time at the WinterNats but her mechanic failed her a bit. The zip tie for the tank lid got hung up and let the tank lid stay up slightly and which spilled fuel in the sweeper. She spun out and broke a wheel but still ran well and finished 3rd, just out of the bump. My MTX-4R was so good and I was leading my main but I blew a rear belt and that was that. Loran won the C main and bumps to the B tomorrow. She ran very well and should be strong tomorrow. Back to to getting the cars ready for tomorrow. Later

I just re-orderd some of the photos I've taken over that last couple of days. There are some great shots in here especially on day five. Some are a little dark but I'm barely a novice w/ the camera.

I had a great time today and really got the feel for the track, it's a challenging track to say the least, i'm really ready for a nap haha!

photos:

Some of my favs:







There are a ton more in there that are pretty decent. Some are not so good hahah .

Anyone have any photo's of my car? Will post a photo later once they upload.

If you click the image a couple times you can download the full sized ones vs the little ones above.

Hey Jeff,

Joe from Evolution in St Louis here. I have been following along online. That has got to be a lot of work trying to keep 3 cars going. Bummer on the rear belt. I thought you were going to bump. Tell Loran hello and good luck. I will be watching online. I am glad to see team Whitting is still going strong and growing. I am living in DC now and waiting to see what happens with 301. I will probably be back at it when they get their issues worked out. Good luck tomorrow.

Hey Joe. Loran says hey back. Good to hear from you. I have family in DC so maybe we can hook up at 301. Yeah, I under-estimated how much it would take to keep us all running but its been fun. Loran runs the B tomorrow and I have my 8th scale race later in the day. I just finished Lorans car and my MRX-4X is ready too. It should be fun. Stay in touch. Later

JEFF

I don't see Skip Starkey's name anywhere on the Main set up. Did he not run? I know he was planning on attending.

Sedan B Main final (unofficial):

Congrats to the winners! Maxy was leading the race and then around the 35min mark he started having problems and he dropped back to 3rd.

Hey Steve,
I ended up driving back home on Monday due to a serious sinus infection. Pretty much been in bed all week. Went to the Doc yesterday and got stocked up on a new batch of anti-biotics so hopefully will be better soon.

Ouchies...Happens to me all the time I get in the lead and end up breaking
because I cant take the pressure being the leader for too long.
Bummer she broke a wheel, and you broke a belt.
Bumping to the B is good. Now I see why you buy new motors every year.
This race your racing everyday for a whole entire week straight.
Good luck Jeff,Emily, and Loran keep it up your doing great so far.
