Race 2 – Race against the elements

Published by:

With overcast skies and falling temperatures, TSRCAR completed Race 2.  With the threat of rain all day, drivers were making the most of their qualifying attempts in case mains were canceled and points would revert to qualifying order.

In 1/8 Open, Keith Gray edged out Matt Carone for the TQ spot by 6.5 seconds.  Each driver finished with 21 laps.  John Schweitzer edged out Dave Leslie for third by just 1/10 of a second.  Dennis Young was fifth 4 seconds behind John and Doug Flack would qualify sixth.

In the main, Keith Gray would loose the number one position to Matt Carone in the first lap.  Keith made a few mistakes before exiting the track on lap 31 with a mechanical failure.  Matt would not relinquish the lead during the 20 minute final.  Position battles were tight for the remaining field.  Dennis Young was finally able to clear himself of the field and finish in second one lap ahead of David Leslie.  John Schweitzer finished three seconds behind David.  Doug Flack dropped out with mechanical trouble with just three minutes remaining and finished fifth.

In touring car, Tom Bracket edged out Chuck Pfahler for the TQ position.  Tom was five seconds faster than Chuck who started second followed by Donald Belcher.   Donald chose not to run the main which left a two man race.  Tom was leading but dropped out with mechanical trouble on lap 28.  Chuck would stay on track to take the lead and then the race would be shortened due to rain.

Electric touring saw four drivers racing for bragging rights.  Chris Preisinger would edge out Jeremiah Ward by three seconds.  Chris Simpson would start third followed by Chuck Pfahler.  Unfortunately the rain would not let up long enough to complete the electric touring mains.

Club Race May 3

April 26th was the start of the 2015 season for TSRCAR.  Due to Saturdays washout of Test and Tune the club used Sunday’s scheduled race as a test.  The scoring loop has been moved underground and worked flawlessly.  Sound system was fully operational, loud and clear.  Traction was good and the surface showed little tire wear.  A few qualifiers were run to test the scoring system and everything went well.

This weekend, May 3, we will start the club champion points.  Gates will be open, on Anthony Wayne Ave, at 9am.  Racing typically begins around 12pm.  We look forward to catching up with our regular racers as well seeing a few new faces.
