Our photogorapher Aurora Cannon was able to snap some pictures of the first two team ariving First to arrive at the track today was Coyote Racing from Dublin Texas. Aurora snapped this shot this afternoon



Lets go to Smokey Hughes in the infield and see what he has to say about this Texas team.

Howdy James and all you TJET race fans. Bubba and the gang got here last month and have been raising He . . . Hmmmm I mean seeing the sights however they for some resaon they went throgh their available funds mighty quick but the good folks over at GreenRun Speedway gave them some work to tide them over until the race is over. They put down some new FISA markings from the fine folks at SlotPro and they painted all the Raceways billboard fencing and will be putting up some new sponsor sheets next week. They brought a nice pair of Camaros with them. First a very nice replica of another Texans Camaro a Jim Hall Chaparral Number 2 and a Coyote Racing RRR Fairgrounds Camaro that has been very nicely done. I saw both on the track when they were testing the timing system and they look good.

Back to you James.

Thanks Smokey. Next to arrive today out of Charlotte NC was Doyle Racing. This Team always looks good and today was no exception.



Smokey whats the soop on Doyle this year. James Doyle Racing has a new Chassis builder for this race Christopher Rolph. I haven't found out yet if the sheetmetasl work was done inhouse or if they sourced it out. That said its is some fine looking machines. on the hauler was a fine looking Mo Carter replica and on the Trailer was a replica the Roger Penske would have been hard pressed to say it didn't come out of his shop. Both looked good during the timing system check. However the Mo Carter is one sweet silent ride and as smooth as silk out there it should be in the hunt if these old eyes and ears aren't failing me.

Folks thats it from the infield I owe Bubba a dinner so we will be getin on out of hear.

Thatnks Smoke and thanks to our new photogorapher Aurora Cannon for some fine shots.

That it for tonight god bless and have a great weekend

Jack arriving with atruckload of tires

BRP showed up this afternoon and of course Tom arrived in style.



Tom announced that he had been in contact with Jack and he gace permission for Tom to manufacture a discontinued body. BRP use to produce a great wide bodies Camaro that you had your choice of two front body posts. Now this made a mighty fine looking Fray/VHORS car till they outlawed it for being too wide :) Here is an example of what you could do with it

Good evening everyone,

A short broadcast tonight. Auroa only had one team to photograph. Dark
Horse Racing out of Howell NJ arrived. Their normal hauler broke down
and they g\had to rent one. The arrived with what we learned is the
Killer Bee Camaro riding point but looks like it will be entering also.
On the truck bed is a very nice Ton Cammararata 68 Black Beauty.


http://www.vabeachho.com/06-CamaroBash/Arrivals/JerryDolan.jpg

Lets go to Smokey for a quick rundown of todays infield activities..
Folks all the teams got out for a little practice. Several of the teams
will need a trip to Weird Jacks Truck as they showed up with skinny
skinny tires and can use a little extra rubber on the road. All passed
the body template check however 2 have the wheels out past the 1.020
axle template. One can be moved in by the ground crew however the
other is too wide due to Vincents wheels and will need the axles
shortened or shorter Nurora Axles it may have to run in the Consolation
race. We will have to check with the owner and see what he would like
to do. One thing for sure the stock Vincent tires have no traction at
all compared to the silicone tires Corrie motors was testing some
chassis today and have 4 they are working with. The Greg Williams works
car was out testing and looks mighty strong.

Back to you James.

Folks that it for tonight may God Bless

Gooooood Evening TJET race fans,

James T. Jet here with Aurora Cannon and Smokey Hughes bringing you
complete coverage of the 2006 Camaro Bash her at GreenRun Speedway in
sunny Virginia Beach, VA. It has been a beautiful day today. There are
still quite a few teams on the road and a bulletin has been put out to
look out for Canary racing as they are over due even if they took the
scenic route. We pray they aren't lost on the USPS Freeway to you know
where. (Twilight Zone Music) No teams arrived today but two teams
practiced and decide they were ready to qualify.

Lets go to Smokey for the low down on Team Coyote.

Thanks James and welcome TJET fans from everywhere. As you know from
past races the Coyote Team members are drinkin buddies of mine and finer
bunch of racers you won't find anywhere. On the way down there hauler
driver somewhere in GA fell in love and disappeared and they had to
drive their cars down to the beach. They ran out of money because of
their early arrival (too much partying) and have been doing odd jobs
around GreenRun to feed and house themselves. They also have had some
extra practice time and it showed when they hit the track today.

First out was the No 2 car replica of Jim Hall's Chaparral. It was
smokin and turned in a very nice 3.174. This car is smooth and strong
the only weak spot is the rear tires can get squirrelly after a few
laps. A set of Pen Valley or Heisters might improve it a bit but since
the ones on the car now are very true they will be leaving them alone.

Next out was the Team Coyote No 8 it pulled a respectable 3.202. This
car is a little tighter and has some very nice and true rear tires but
the slip just a tad more than you want on GreenRun. Again these are a
nice custom trued set and the crew will be leaving them alone.

Smokey Honey this is Aurora you haven't seen this but I got a nice shot
of the Number 8 car headed for the finish line during time trials and
here is a look.



[Smokey] Well I'll be darned that there is Billy Bob sneaking in the
background. I'll have to mosey on over and see how he is doing before
Bubba get out of the No 8 and wails the tarr out of him. I sure hope
that honey was worth it :)

James next out on the track was Team Doyle’s Roger Penske Sunoco Camaro
replica. This is a beautiful car running on top of a Rolph Engineering
chassis. It looks a little tight on the track but is very smooth and you
can tell there is plenty of horsepower left over. It turned in a nice 3.216

After the Sunoco came the MO Carter replica and she is a beauty also on
a Rolph Engineering chassis. Very smooth but the driver had problems on
the second practice lap when it hit some oil left on the track by Billy
Bob's truck and he spun out and ended up in the new sand trap on turn 7.
Aurora did you catch it on film. I sure did hone take a look.



Thanks Aurora. That’s a might fine picture. Well Bill got his act
together finished his practice time and went for it and turned in a very
nice 3.189

Back to you James

Thanks Smokey and Aurora

Folks we announcing a new Driver Sponsor. Mongrel racing that came all
the way from Arizona brought some race prizes to share some nice custom
wheels and a very nice large Model Motoring Decal. Thanks Rob Rose

Now we need to thank the rest of our sponsors

The Camaro Bash has been made possible by our fine sponsors.

Good evening TJET fans from all around the world. This is James T. Jet for HOTV bringing you complete coverage of the 2006 Camaro Bash at GreenRun Speedway in Virginia Beach, VA. We had some arrivals today and some teams making their qualifying runs.

First to arrive from Madison, AL was Rocket City Racing. Their fabrication shop has been busy. Take a look at the beautiful trailer and Jim Hall Chaparral Camaro replica the brought with them. There is a rumor of a second car that bit the dust on their test track. Also HOTV hopes to bring you a Special Report on their Trailer Fabrication Shop in the future

-

Next up from Valricao, FL is that sassy lady Shelby of Shelby Motors bring a 71 Camaro found in some back country garage. Shelby is a collector and scrounges the country side looking for cars that tickle her fancy



Following Shelby through the gates is King Racing with a pair of Camaros. King Racing out of Meyersdale PA has been racing the circuit since the beginning. Thy brought a pair of beauties with them.



Lets go to Smokey in the infield for our qualifying report Welcome TJET fans. On the track qualifying this evening were four teams. First out was Pande Racing out of Jupiter Fl and their Red 13 hit the track first. It turned a nice 3.314 the first time out. They pitted and changed rear tires from the stock RRR to the Black Hawk Bauers and could only get a 3.363. So back to pits and the original tires Smokey I have a shot of the Number 13 coming into turn 5



Next came their Hooter Short Track Camaro a personal favorite of ole Smokey. Look out they are in trouble! I got it Smokey take a look folks Oooh into the hay stack on turn 7. Ouch it sounds like a spun pinion they will have to hed behind the wall for now. Next up from Phoenix, AZ is Team Coffell. Sporting a good looking 67 Camaro. She looks good in every turn except turn one where she is a little loose and brings home a 3.347. Into the pits for some fresh rear rubber and back out and its a little better with a 3.294 Smoke hone I have them in turn 8



Now here come a Team that always does well here at GreenRun the Penskee of HO Team Voegelin. First out is the beautiful No 6 68 Z28 based on a 67 MM Camaro. We will be reporting on this car in much more detail later. But I can tell you it is much prettier than the pictures. Out of the pits and around she goes. The best time is 3.341. This car is a tad touch and was clocking in the 3.2s it just can't get in the grove in the 3 lap qualifying run. Smokey I got here on the main straight



Yes folks those are actual hood pins you see there :) Next out came there 71 Coca Cola No 12. It is super smooth but very tight and controllers had to be swapped out for the qualifying run. It brought home a 3.294 but during practice after she was warmed up was turning consistent 3.1s Folks we need to thank our sponsors Now we need to thank the rest of our sponsors

Good evening TJET Fans. This is HOTV's complete coverage of the 2006 Camaro Bash at GreenRun Speedway in Virginia Beach, VA. I'm James TJET and with me in the Pits is Smokey Hughes. For those of you who don’t remember Smokey Hughes he use to drive the No 76 Ford Fairlane for Tom Lowe a couple years back. Also with us is the famous Aurora Cannon roaming the track and taking photos.

Lets go to Smokey and the qualifying action. Thanks James and welcome folks. I am mighty glad to be here. I am hoping Mr Lowe might get me another ride in one of his new AutoWorld powered JET but only time will tell.

First out was Rocket City's beautiful replica of the Jim Hall Number 1 car form the TA circuit in the 70s. We did not get a spec sheet from the ground crew so we will have to bring you the car specs at a later broadcast. This car looks smooth and just about perfect for GreenRun it could use just a tad more bite in the corners but it will be up to the ground crew to see if they are going to change rear rubber. They brought home a 3.246 but during the short practice it was almost in the 2.1s

Smokey Hone I have a shot for the folks



Next up is the gal from Florida Shelby. Looks like Shelby's crew chief made a trip to the SlotPro truck and pick up some numbers.. First time out the Shelby car could only turn a 3.926 but examination in the pits showed stock TJET tires and they were replaced with some black Hawks and back out they went after some practice they went on to qualify at a 3.255

Here is Aurora's shot in turn 8



Out came King Motors next with their pair of Black Beauties. The number 6 69 Z28 was first out running stock wheels and ThunderSlicks on the rear. They could only get down to 3.576. Back to pits and some PennValleys on the raer and the time came down to 3.459. For our audience note that this is a pure stock chassis motor brushes and all. Next out came their JL Camaro with stock wheels and ThunderSlicks on the rear. She could only turn a 3.529. Back in the pits and some Penn Valley tires and the time came down to 3.395 Smokey

I have a sot of this car in the number 6 turn.



Thanks Aurora Next out came Inland Empire East's Number 5 Model Motoring Camaro. Very smooth and brought in a 3.236. Sorry but we have no particulars on the Inland Empire East or West Cars at this time. Next their No 3 JL Camaro hit the track and brought in a 3.247 another well prepped car.

I have a shot for th folks in turn 7



Next out came Inland Empire West No 4 car another Model Motoring Camaro. This was the best handling of all the swb Camaros and brought home a 3.250. The sister car the Number 8 JL Camaro hit the track and was very smooth also it brought in a 3.217 and

Aurora got them in turn 5



Next to hit the track is the Greg Williams Works car. This is a stock rimmed chassis built by Greg Williams of Arizona. It is carrying a Corrie Motors JL Pepsi Camaro Body and it is sweet. It hit the track and pulled in a 3.142. [Note this is a stock JL body no lowering or anything just new paint. It is show the list members what can be done by detailing up your own body and using a Greg Williams Chassis. Next Race I will have a Chritopher Rolph Chassis too and will add other chassis builders as they become known to me]

Here is Aurora Shot in turn 4



Last out is the Corrie Motors 77 Camaro sporting a Corrie Motors Chassis with Fat Fender Wheels, JW tires on the front and Penn Valley Tires on the Rear. They tried hard to bring home the pole but fell short with a 3.092

Smokey I got a shot in turn 8



Before we close this broadcast we need to thank our sponsors

Good afternoon everyone.

James TJET here for HOTV with the final qualifying results for the 2006 Camaro Bash The final attempts to qualify are over. Mongrel Racing, King racing and Dark Horse Racing went to the pits and requalkified today. Lets go to Smokey for the results.

Hi TJET fans it has been a fun afternoon here at GreenRun Speedway. First I went over to check with Mongrel racing in the Pits. They had not tried anything since their first attempt. Both cars have beautiful custom aluminum wheels however there are no replacement tires in the pits. So we tried the old rub some oil in the tire trick and oiled the top plate and put just a tad of body rock in the chassis and back out both cars went well their 68 G machimne made the fiels and captured the 22rd position with a 3.354 King Racing and Dark Horse Racing had all their entries out of the field so both teams took the fastest qualifier they had and oiled the gearplate, and added some body rock and went out fot one last chance to qualify. King Racing got the 21st Spot with a 3.345 and Dark Horse Racing got the 23rd spot with a 3.361 Here is a look at the final Qualifying standings Note the Corrie Motors and Greg Williams Works car do not count towards the standings

Lap 4 and it is a 4 way battle for first the Greg Williams Pepsi Special, Doyle Racing and the Inland Empire Boys and still gaining ground is the Rocket City Entry. Folks you won'r believe the moves that madman driving the Mongrel Racing Camaro has been making he has moved up from 23rd to 6th place what a run they have had 8th place througfh 13th is all bunched up anbd it will be anyones guess to whats goinf to happen there.

TJET Race Fans we are back James T. Jet here lets go staright to Smokey
for the action


Ladies and gentlemen this is a race coming out of turn 9 Enland Empire
East is makeing a move look out he bumped his team mate and took out
Doyle Racing The Greg Williams Pepsi Special and Rocket city have moved into 2nd and third.

Lap 6

By the time Doyle Racing recovered they had dropped back to 10th but
don't count them out that Chevy is strong.

Inland Empire East just crossed the line for 9 and is almost to turn 1



In a surprise move Rocket City nudged the Greg Williams Works car and
pulled out ahead into 2nd.




Corrie Motors is making a strong move on Inand Empire West and is
right on his bumper. But wait folks there is more Coyote Racing and
Aslumn Racing and Tiny Motors and Land HO are all fighting for 6th place
but if anyone makes a mistake they will drop back to 12th



Watch Coffel Racing he is on Doyle Racings tail

Smokey I have a nice airborne shot for the folks



Folks lets go to the leader board to see how they stand

Folks we need to trake a break but will be back with more racing

[Side Note: The first cars out for each heat are at a slight
disadvanatage when the cars are this close together especially in heat 1
and 2 as they are the two hardest lanes to drive and as each car is run
they normally get better. I was surprised where Inland Empire East
ended up as I almost lost it in turn two and it bounced off the
retaining wall and slid way out in turn 8 and 9]

No lets go to Smokey

A great big welcome back TJET Race Fans. Let me say Woooooo Dogy this is the closest race I have seen at GreenRun Speedway the chassis building is getting much better.

Lap 14 and 15 saw Coyote Racing Corrie Racing and Land HO battling it out for the lead

Lap 16 Rocket City is losing ground to Fair Racing and Island Empire Easts no 3. And the Coca Cola Car is finally in the groove and gaining ground

[Note The reason Rocket City Dropped was the 65 Ohm Contoller I was using for the tight cars bit the dust and I had to go to my Parma 90 and could not turn as fast]

Lap 17 the Greg Williams Works Pepsi Special is making a move on Doyle and Tiny Motors he took advantage of the battle those two are putting up. Coyote Racing , Corrie Motors and Land HO and Asylum Racing are all going at it and its amybodies race as the time ticks down

Lap 18 the time is just about up Corrie Motors finally broke away with Land HO right on his tail. Its going to be Corrie Motors Land HO giving it all he has lost it in turn 2 but its enough to put him infront of Asylum Racing. But whats this the Greg Williams Works Pepsi Special Camaro is dead even with Asylum. Ms Cannon I sure hope you got that.

I sure did Smokey take a look



Thanks Aurora did you get any more shots

Thanks Aurora some great Shots. Folks this was on wail of a race I know Corrie Motors is happy with their performance after their poor showing in the Mustang Madness Race. There are a lot of mighty fine cars out there and anyone of the top 10 could have won this race
