Default Hangar 30, Round 2 Results

This was the second race of the H30 season, and for me personally there was a lot to absorb. First on the list was the volume of poor life choices processed while in Vegas at IIC, but those stories are for another time, preferably with a legally-binding non-disclosure agreement. NDA, aside, I am at liberty to discuss are the kick-ass improvements made to the H30 track build (thanks Brian, Todd, Mike, George and anyone else I missed) and the unplanned upgrade to the newest version of RC Scoring Pro. The former is all goodness and enhanced the on-track action in a big way, while the latter is the source of a ďmea culpaĒ regarding how the race results are posted this week. It turns out the results in the new version or RCSP do not provide a summary of each round as we had in the past, which is why there are 17 files instead of 3. Iím pretty sure thereís a way to post all this stuff online in real time, so next race Iíll have an unlimited data plan on my cell phone (to tether the computer to the interwebs) and a whole bunch of unsolicited advice on how to embarrass myself less. The net result of all of this is I think I can get H30 online like Todd posts the CC results, so stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed. Now, on to the results.

Novice is awesome, and gives me faith that our hobby will thrive in the years to come. We had five (count em, five) drivers all night, and the only regular was Gary Bennett, making his return from a vacation in the Southwest and a stopover in Vegas for some Wayne Newton action and to support the SRCR contingent a IIC. Five drivers started the night, and all five finished which has to be some kind of record. In the end, Gary put his decades of RC experience to work to take the win, with Ken Christiansen second and Paul Nortness third.

Stock Touring was the Donny Banks show, with Stuart and Mike Boyle (aka Chaps) hassling him at every opportunity. Donny asserted is will by taking TQ and the win, but Stuart served notice by finishing 2nd only 1 second behind, with Mike third.

Stock 1/12 was, in a word, robust. Eight cars were fielded, which I believe is close to an all-time high for the Hangar. Thereís something pure and fun about hammering a pan car over the bumps, and the top three (Bodine, Stuart and Todd) are more than willing to wax philosophical about how much they enjoy Hangar 30 pan car racing. Bottom line is if youíve ever considered rocking one of these pocket rockets, PM me and Iíll gladly lend you my ride so you can get a taste. Itís awesome. Qualy and Main results were the same, with Stuart grabbing TQ and the win, followed by Brian and Todd.

Scale Spec was (as usual) the capper on the night. This week we were treated to visits by Donny and Mike Boyle, taking the TQ and #2 grid spots respectively, followed by Jeff Johnson who was clearly building on a strong showing at IIC. The main started with some shenanigans at the front, namely Mike and Donny roughing each other up for fun, but after a couple minutes they settled down and ran their race, with Donny taking the win, Mike second, Jeff third.

I hope to see repeat racers and some new ones when we meet again at Hangar 30 on November 1st, Mark your calendars, plan your excuses for an early exit from work, and we will see you there!

Results (all 17 of them) are attached.
