go romo go !

Hey Smitty,

Are you running one race next weekend, or are you going to do a double header? Just wondering how many attempts you and I will have to catch DVB :)

model40fan
knowing TE aint scared... i would double 'em up short and long track
72_Chevy_C10
Cool...I thought you were doubling them up

This just in!  The Wagon Wars race has been declared over due to the package mailed today from New Jersey being lost in a blizzard!  There is little to any chance of them making it to the great northern state of Maine (there by eliminating the possibility of anyone catching me for 2nd place!).  Ok, just kidding!  This should be very interesting and fun. Bring it baby! ;)

model40fan
watch out... 2nd is the new 1st...
72_Chevy_C10
I'm looking forward to seeing the results from this weekend...should be good!

they're here, they're here... the wagons are here... thanks C10...

model40fan
i may race 'em while my turkey bakes ?
72_Chevy_C10
no problem, Smitty...I'm glad they got there okay!

72_Chevy_C10

The long heet is in the books...

Then I shortened the track to just under 10 feet for the "HOLE SHOTS FROM HADIES"

The HSFH is an Exibition race not a points race... I don't want it to appear that I was giving anyone an extra chance at you know who...

model40fan
any racers want grudge matches for monday's race LMK...still time...
72_Chevy_C10
I love the rubber on the starting line!!
Traction-Event
Agree, Smitty was busy with the details...track is in fine shape...I can smell the smokey burnouts
model40fan
my favorite are the small blister discs glued down as water puddles...

Beat by that guy from Jersey...never even got a shot at DVB... well done Chris!

Smitty great photos and race call. I'll work on the points later and post up. Great racing all!!!

 

grudge match on the short track?

...my #58 wants another shot at#17 FM Chevelle...race for pride..or rides? I'm in if FM is.

FatMike
I'm in. Run what cha brung and hope you brung enough.
FatMike
I'll even put my ride up.
72_Chevy_C10
Battle of the white Chevelle wagons!

Points!!!...These are final...unless Smitty says the short run is a points race...You guys make the call...it may settle a few ties, or the grudge matches could settle those?

model40fan
dadvbal and c10, do you want the HSFH heet to count ?
72_Chevy_C10
I can't view the points on my phone...I guess DVB and I ended up tied for 2nd?
72_Chevy_C10
I'm pretty sure that Bill will kick my butt in a short race...but it doesn't matter to me, you can race them off if you want
Dadvball
I'm okay with that. It can be the tie-breaker. More racing, more fun!
model40fan
grudge match II ... #24 vs.C10

Great job with this event, Smitty! It was a lot of fun trying to make these wagons cool looking and fast!

Hey Smitty, are you still going to do a race with the fast 4 from the wagons vs the fast4 from the Crew Chief race next weekend? I think that would be pretty cool!

And Congrats TE...that car of yours was fast!!

model40fan
yup
72_Chevy_C10
Cool!

posted the HSFH staging pix above...

This was by far my favorite series. Of course I haven't been racing long but this was a lot of fun. Thanks to all the hosts and other racers. Congratulations on your win TE. You were King of the 5 spokes this time. Don't get used to it, it won't happen for ever. LOL

model40fan
thanks for trailering my wagon, [food at the canteen was good !]

One of my favorites too!  Awesome grocery getters!  Great job with the pics and racing Smitty!  Congrats C10 on the win and to TE for the overall title.

72_Chevy_C10
Whoa, that is a TOTAL surprise...I figured a bunch of cars would get me on the short track!
Traction-Event
Finished up the racing with a pair of 3rds...but I got a victory in the Chevelle battle royal!
model40fan
true test of speed... the same top 4 racers on both length tracks
FatMike
Well at least I was able to scare TE even if I didn't get past him. Thanks Smitty for running them.

the team WAGON TRAIN racers are ;

#57 TE

#24 DAD

#27 C10

#91 SLOPPY

#25 C10

#58 TE

#17 FM

#66 STAWKA, A 3 WAY TIE, TE & C10 ALREADY HAD RACERS ON THE TRAIN...

THE CHIEFS TEAM TO BE DETERMINED...

The Wagon Train vs The Chiefs...I like it!

If I remember right, I think that my Pick-ups and Hot Rods were running pretty similar times to the Wagons (before I sent them out)...so, it should be a pretty cool shoot-out!

The Battle of Auburn Hill!

:)

model40fan
the chiefs series will be started out at the GRIDIRON SPORTS PUB in Lewiston, ME.
72_Chevy_C10
Cool! It should be fun to watch...the Hot Rods look great going down the track!

All, great series with good attendance 28 cars...good stuff. Thanks to all the hosts and racers making this what it is. Some new faces had success, hope to see those individuals build on that. 

model40fan
we seem to have around 28 cars most series, now's the time for fence sitting racers to FALL in, even if just to fill the brackets. thanks

The WW and CREW CHIEFS shootout is still to come, going to delay returns,

WW winner TE's plexi-glass car carrier and 4 new wagons will be included.


ready to be TE's future winners


I'm not complaining, but I have not won the Shadow jet carry case ....that prize is for the Sedan series? correct, or do you have two of them?

model40fan
thanks TE... BEEN SITTING ON THE COUNTER FOR A MONTH... WE'LL FIND YOU SOMETHING...
Traction-Event
No problem, I want to earn it....
model40fan
wrong carry case, plexi, had 4 wagons in it, must be the one... go te go !

if you need your wagons right away let me know... the post office is a 45 minute free for all...  gonna wait till after xmas.... 

72_Chevy_C10
I don't need them back right away...whenever the craziness is over
FatMike
My Chevy wagon goes to TE and the caddy herse you can keep or pass it on to someone else.

PACKING RETURNS... does big mike's #17 go to TE....

FatMike
Yes send it to TE. Thanks
