oval racing at the barn

I plan to be there on 5/14/04 one eye and all. I think you guys should give me at least a 2 lap advantage so I will be on a level playing field. I mean what kind of bragging can you do if you whip up on the handicapped ?

man, what a great day of racing!!!

first i would like to thank everyone for their support of the 6.0 breakout class. i am glad we decided to let those w/ electric touring cars run w/ us. i think we can continue w/ this formula for a while. some have mentioned maybe going to 5.5 sec., but i think we should run like this for a while. at this rate of growth we will have 15 racers in this class before long. we had 4 entries the first trial weekend and 8 on the first official race. i have also heard of about 3 more for next time.

second, i want to remind everyone of the scheduled "work on the track day" next saturday may 22nd. we will paint the wall and possibly lay some of the inner apron in the turns.

last, congrats to all the winners yesterday:

nitro novice: evan fortier
6.0 spec: james stroud (oval racer 2)
2wd pro electric truck: gerry moore
nitro touring stock: james stroud (oval racer 2)
nitro pro truck: marty harrell (tachie)

next race saturday june 5th
come on out and join us!

Thanks Oval , I am looking forward to testing my new body and hoping for some 4 sec laps to try and keep the road hot behind if not in front of you. I dont think the paint is going to bother me ,probably help. The apron is going to look good but I am really afraid 2" of concrete is not going to hold up under the weight of a turn marshal. With all the rain they got Sat. night it may not still be there. 6 inches I am told. It washed Thunder Alley into the center. Going to have to drag it back out on the track and pack it back down.

I have been told by Steve that some guys are coming to race T-Maxx class. Anyone reading this bring them on it might be interesting. Big trucks, small track might even get some 6 sec laps out of these monster trucks.

Hey Oval we are not getting a lot of traffic on this site. I was hoping to see the results of July 3 posted but no luck. I am looking forward to the Chatham r/c trip this Sat. I might not do good but I want to see this track up close.
See you Sat Morning at BJ,s.

I liked the track ,just wish I had finished a race. It would take me a while to get used to the narrow back stretch. It calls to you to flatfoot and it lies,you can't make it.
