I thought the same thing, which blew me away, but it's actually a different Justin Hall.  The O.G. JH has traded in his driving gear for a tennis racket and from what I hear has been dominating in the older dudes doubles leagues.

59 entries in the Group 1 catch all, STL/STU/B-Spec/etc.  I hope we can get through like the Thunderhill Majors (only 47 entries there) and not have casualties.

The lead 3 stayed in line and worked away until the last 2 laps Hayes and skeer both got by Droenen.  Skeer got by Hayes on the last corner and were side by side at the finish.  There was a 4-5 second gap to Vance and Lee another second to Joey.  Joey had a great start and ran 3rd for the first few laps and then faded....

Not sure I know that the results are official.  I do not someone got tossed in qualifying for wrong tires...SM6 vs SM7.  I think they scaled and checked restrictors not sure what else since we finished 6th :(

I wasn't even weighed for Saturday's pole in both SM and STL qual, 3rd in the SM race, or Sunday's 2nd in STL race :noidea:

I guess one way to keep tech fair is to not check anyone to protect those/team/shop suspected of playing outside the lines...  Just sayin'

 

SCCA Majors is the top rung of the amateur racing ladder right now, this is not good for our class.  Yes, I asked the question suspecting what the answer was going to be...  I've heard what a joke it is.  Yes, I'm the NASA guy but this is in my backyard and it's total BS.

Indeed. I would love to show off how legit the stuff is after winning. :)

Tech has been low but the cars are the closest. 3 cars yesterday within .04 seconds for their fast laps in the 16 lap race.

John, there is a Majors race the weekend of May 2nd at Blackhawk Farm near Beloit, WI. I'm spectating and happily harassing anyone that looks like they need it. I'm sure Dave Wheeler will report on tech. I'll also check tech for Spec Miata and for the production cars. My guess ahead of time, not much teched. I don't call weights and plates a tech check.
