Hey folks, here's a quick run-down on the results, with a full report to follow soon after!

Placing Team Laps Avg.
1 Tom M., Jeremy 1865 116.56
2 JT, Rollin 1839 114.94
3 Buddy, Austin, Bob 1695 105.94
4 Rick, Darin, Josh 1646 102.88
5 Doug, Wes 1629 101.81
6 Dave 1613 100.81
7 John P., Pinky, Johnny B. 1554 97.13
8 Cap, Kyle 1523 95.19
9 Erik S., Tom S. 851 53.19


Dave managed to run the entire race by himself after his partner was unable to show up, and Erik ran 15 of 16 heats as Tom S. had some health issues. There were a handful of motor failures, including Cap and Kyle, and Erik and Tom S. had their car suffer irreversible damage in the early going that eventually forced Erik to pull it as a DNF.

Congrats to Kyle for turning a pretty consistent race in what I believe is his first 1/24 race!

Here's a selection of photos taken during the race. Sorry they took so long to get up, I tried doing it last night and my image card went on the fritz again, which caused it to have problems reading the images. I spent all night last night getting the images back, and unfortunately they aren't as high a quality as the originals (which were a pretty high resolution). I think you'll agree that they still look just fine!
















Assorted views of our three race bodies prior to running them, on our work desk (well, one of the work desks, anyway). I'll get a shot of the Bentlee that made the cut later, so you can see it post-race.

Almost like they work at the place or something. Uncanny...
