Had my second official race last night at my local car night haunt.
Pretty good turn out, ran three classes this time which was fun and made for more racing.
Ran a total of 48 cars, including some of my own.
Stock class I have 26 cars, out of the package with graphite allowed only.
Modified has only 4 entries, mods allowed like weight, axles, wheels etc...
HAMB class had 18 cars and was open to stock cars modeled on 1964 and earlier cars, hot rods and customs (HAMB is a website devoted to traditional rods and customs)
Stock went well with some close cars, ended up having a slight cheater in the final (sanded wheels) so he was disqualified and his car smashed with a 5 pound hammer! it was awesome. Resulting re-race of the final was almost too close to call but went to a late model gt350 shelby mustang, just edging out a FTE Boneshaker
Modified was short and sweet with my FTE Ambulance taking the win.
HAMB was great with the final win a 32 coupe edging out my FTE Way 2 Fast.
Some interesting matchups of similar or same cars, two boneshakers with a primer one winning over painted, then the primer one against the FTE boneshaker with the FTE barely edgeing out the stock car. Also heads up of two Ford Tunderbolts in white.
I needed to take more pics of the cars running, but too busy running the races.
Here are some pics of the track and set up before it got dark. Notice the memorial track lanes for Gary Coleman and Dennis Hopper...everyone said the Hopper lane was faster although I leveled the track! Who knows.
I think i'll take myself out of racing though, felt like I was cheating since I have the track at home. Maybe stay in the modified class...I think it's going to take off.
