Race #2 - 5/12/12

Our first race of 2012 is under our belts and all in all, I think it was a great day for everyone. We had 31 cars across 4 classes, WOW! What a great turnout for a holiday weekend! We got started a little late, thanks to a couple issues getting the scoring system ready for the new class, but we were able to get through it, and now that it is set up we should not experience it in the future. Mother nature got in my head a little, and with rain in the area, we as a group decided to shorten the program. Even with one less heat race, I for one had a very good time racing with everyone in the Sportsman class, and also enjoyed watching the other classes mix it up. I certainly look forward to the exciting times we will have this year at the "Mini-Madhouse".

 I would like to extend many thanks to all that helped put on a great show yesterday. Special thanks to Patti Pedigo for her help in getting everyone signed up and also to Dave Brawner for taking on the huge responsibility of technical director. Both did a great job yesterday. Thanks to Tina, Cookie, J.R., and Todd for helping in the booth calling and scoring races. Not only is it a big help to me personally, it is great to have several people that know how the booth and scoring system run, so that when unexpected things arise, we can help each other and still have a smooth program.

 I have posted the results and points. You can access them by clicking on the points tab at the top of the page, or by clicking here. You will see points for two (2) heat races, even though we only ran one (1) per class. Heat points count double when we only run one round. I will leave the complete recap for Cookie later this week, but congratulations to our winners. Todd Holloway took home the checkers in the first ever Super Late Model feature, Jerry Brawner continued his winning ways in the Sprints, newcomer Jeremiah Ward took home the victory in Sportsman, and last but not least Chris Brawner got his first IQSR victory in the Bush Class. I forgot to snap victory lane photos this week, my apologies to the the winners. I will take them at the next race and post them with the winners from Race #3.

 I'll get lap times posted in the next couple days. Thanks again to all that came out and enjoyed the day with us, I am more excited than ever to be a part of such a great club. I know we will have many more great races and good times this year!
