We had a great day of racing yesterday. It was hot, but the shaded areas of the church parking lot provided areas where some drivers could pit without even without putting up their easy ups. I've never raced with a better group of people who just came out to race and have fun. We had rookie drivers, young drivers, and old drivers. Everyone pitched in to help clean up which we greatly appreciated. Our youngest driver, Ethan did a great job. Angela our rookie driver did a super job. Special thanks to Steve who brought his trailer for our drivers stand and even brought an air compressor. The Slash Class provided the most thrills, spills and fun. Watching six Slashes and one SC10 coming down the long straight away was great fun. There was a lot laughing and friendly kidding in that class. John drove Slash for the first time using a borrowed truck and finished second overall. He did an excellent job! I think their may be a Slash in his future. We had a few more drivers which added to the money that the church will receive. Thanks to all that came. I've included the race results.

We had avery good race today. There was a small turnout, but everyone had a great time, there was great weather, and everyone pitched in to help. John was a big help setting up, Steve brought his trailer for the drivers stand, and everyone help to pick up the track. Our two young drivers did a great job! I'll be posting the results and some pictures in the very near future. Special thanks to Gary and Scott who washed the track to get rid of the pop we sprayed to increase traction. You can go to Chi Town RC forums and see some great pictures Gene took.

Here are the racing results from yesterday's racing. We had a small turn out and a great time. There were four new racers to our races. Two of those drivers, Michael and Alex, were young drivers.

The classes we will run will be stock touring, GT3, Slash, Off road, 1/16 scale, and any others as long as we have at least three cars for a class. We can also combine classes. We run 6 minute heats and mains.The church is trying this as part of their outreach programs. There may be no drivers stand. You may want to bring something to stand on if you need it. There will be a door prize drawing for the drivers at no charge. Everyone had a very good time last year.
This great place for new drivers to get started and for racers looking to have fun!

The race is Saturday!

MLD 06-04-2010 10:40 AM

If the race tomorrow is canceled (rained out) early, I will post it here.

MLD 06-05-2010 12:46 PM

We tried!
 
It had not rained early so Gloria and I went to Winfield and with John Rebel's help the track was set up about 8:50 AM. About 9:10 the rains came. We waited for a while then with John's help we took down the track. John really saved us a lot of work. He stayed and worked in the rain helping us. John did a great job!

[B]OUR NEXT RACE IS JUNE 19![/B] We hope to see more people there. Again, thanks to John who went above and beyond.
