Good evening race fans James T. Jet here for HOTV with complete coverage of the 2012 Ultra G Cup Race from GreenRun Speedway in chilly Virginia Beach, VA. Covering the round 2 of this year’s race we have our color infield announcer Smokey Hughes and HOTV camera lady Aurora Cannon. Let’s go to Smokey in the infield.
Thanks TJET fans. A question I get ask often is how can all these cars be raced on the same track with one controller. That’s an easy one, the official controller of Green Run Speedway is One Stop Slot Shop’ Stage III. GreenRun uses the transistor board and makes the majority of the TJETS drive the same and if there is a really tight chassis just dial in a little coast and that smooths things out greatly.
What a round the Clyde-O-Mite Cheetah came to life on the orange lane and had a perfect heat turning in 13 laps to pull a head of Corrie Motors GT40. Here is a shot Aurora got of the Cheetah, Team Vanelli's cars and Team Placebo.
Corrie Motors had to go into the pits and change its left tire to a larger diameter as it was hanging up in several different curves. They could only turn in 11 laps and barely are hanging on to second place with Team Clyde-O-Mite’s Hot Rod right on their tail. Miss Cannon caught them in action here.
Team Vanelli’s Gt40 moved up to 4th with a very nice run and Team Angelis’s FT40 moved up 2 spots to 5th. Team Vanellis’s Camaro had some trouble on the back curves and dropped 2 spots with Team Placebo bringing up the rear. Here is a look at the leader board and how they stand now.
Thanks Smokey and Aurora. Looks like its going to be some tight racing for 2nd place. Next round will be on yellow lane and things should speed up.
