Default Hangar 30, Round 9 Results

Jesse delivers another great race report, and you guys delivered another great night of racing. Never a dull moment at the Hangar, thanks to everyone who has come out this season. After a loooooong break, we reconvene on the 21st for three more races to close out the H30 season. I hope to see a bunch of you guys there!

We once again were treated to a solid field of novice drivers, as has been the case at each round so far. Paul Nortness was rocking an F1, and also brought a new racer along in Brendan Kai. The ageless wonder Gary Bennett was put up a valiant effort, but Ken Christiansen simply drove like a mad man all night long and swept the evening's activities. Gary would take second on the night, with Brendan taking the final podium position. Fine racing, fellas!


With the club mechanic Mike Boyle sitting out Scale spec for the night, it would come down to a two-horse battle between Chris Perry and Kyle Bradshaw for Wednesday bragging rights. Kyle's newfound love for maintenance meant a more sorted car throughout the night and personal-best times, but that meant little to Chris, as the elder Perry would take a TQ and the A-Main win. Bradshaw would have an up and down Main, but would recover nicely and finish just 4 seconds back in second, with Jerry Boyle rounding out the podium.


The "Small Block' crowd was out in full force Wednesday, as Mike Boyle, Jeff Johnson and myself broke out the 21.5's to mix it up with the rest of the 17.5 machines. Travis Schreven put on a show in qualifying, easily taking TQ by nearly 2 laps. Mike Boyle would qualify a solid third, and after yet another "Loctite" incident, I would right the ship in Q2 and qualify third. With Mike sitting out the Main, Travis had a clear getaway with myself fighting to stave off a ballistic Stuart Mason and a 5-car freight train behind me. With Stuart struggling with traction issues and "Peeler" pulling off with a mechanical, I inherited a comfortable lead that I would keep to the final tone. "Mini" Mason would take second with a pit maneuver for the ages at the finish line, with Alvin Nucum rounding out the podium.

STOCK 12th:

What Stuart lacked in Stock Touring, he more than made up for in Stock 12th scale. With Brian Bodine enjoying a swanky European vacation, a clean sweep of the evening's activities including the TQ and A-Main were served up "Mini style", with father Todd taking a well-deserved second, and George Strichen rounding out the podium with a solid drive of his own. While Stuart is at the top of the mountain currently, Todd, George and Kelsey have each been making steady strides all season long. Will we see a new challenger to the crown in the near future? Time will tell, but if Young Mason has any say, it might be later rather than sooner. Stay tuned!

Another fine night of Hangar shenanigans is in the books, and after a month break, we'll be back at it on February 21st for the stretch run of the indoor season. In the meantime, we have another Saturday extravaganza in store for this weekend, as well as opportunities to race at NORA and our friends down south with Rose City. Get out and go racing! What's the alternative.... watching it rain all day?
