In OC today.  Can't see the smoke, the smog is in the way.


I have an opinion so I must be right

Wheels up last night, so I'm watching from texts.

 

Some surprises and some expected

 

The real parity test starts this year, where we'll see folks showing up to different tracks with different cars.  If I were in this hunt, I would have brought the 99 to Fontana too.  

 

Ken in our 25 hour car and the Nasa national champ in a 93.  Guaranteed that Matt won't sandbag.  He only knows one way! A drafting fest may muddy the results  :)

Some surprises...but just mostly because a few new names. Morning times definitely faster...15 minutes tomorrow will move things around! Or keep them the same! Partners will do well!

I will take 5 out of 6 on my predictions! Race 1 in the books...pretty much as expected. Lee and Skeer had the bottom line which moved out on the start...pretty much a cluster going into turn 3 off the banking. They got a gap while 3 thru 10 swapped spots for a few laps.. They were never challenged. Elliot waited until the last lap to make a pass into turn 3...as expected. But Clement made a run coming out of the last set of turns to get Elliot at the stripe by a couple feet. Tyler Vance completed the sweep for the SoCal guys. Congrats to all!

Same grid today(sun)40 minutes...will be interesting to see what was learned from race 1!

Thanks Ron... Sitting here in nursing home with dad., not fun. Race monitor was my only relief! .. It appears that "racing " for p3-10 early on was not such a good strategy. I suspect drennan, Sutherland and the rest of the guys will be in the hint today. Best of luck to my customers as well with solid top tens. Tilley, busk and powers!
Good luck to all .

10 minutes to go in Sunday's race and Drennen and Lee have a HUGE lead over everyone else. The field is pretty spread out.

We, Myself.  Joey his Uncle Jim and I had a tough weekend!  Only ran 2 sessions...  Both Races!  I am excited about future races, but what an epic struggle.  We found a new main wiring harness on ebay out of a Mazda Dealers old stock.  It was from a 93, which caught us off gaurd as it has a different rear harness for the fuel pump and a different dash harness.  We also had the trans seal leak during Saturday's race all over the clutch and caused it to slip tough on those looong straights wnet from DFL to 16th on Saturday.  Sunday we started 24th as we were gridded by all fastest times from Friday and Saturday..  Anyway finished 11th, missed the setup, but fought hard including many 20 hour days!  Glad the weekend is over and we can get back to normal prep.  

 

Congrats to Clement Lee who dominated the weekend.  Elliot Skeer got sick and did not run Sunday but he was also very quick.  Was great to see the some of the Portland Mafia running, Sutherland and Schultz!  Droennen was also impressive in his 1.8 NA/  

 

Tyler Vance was impressively mature after getting roughed up Nascar style.... (by a Nascar Nationwide driver Kyle Kelly)  The TFB crew was very quick all weekend so happy for them.

 

Anyway West Coast racing is going to be fun!
