That will be a sight - Smokeio wearing three bowling shirts at once. 'Cos you can't upset one sponsor by favoring another, right? And how does it work that two sponsors come up with three shirts, is one a mixture? And if so, which sponsor is on the front?

These are delicate and important questions, you understand, the amateur racing public needs transparency as to how our Mastercard balances are spent... :think:

Just wash them with a little clorox water and that yellow will come out. It's also good for taking out brown streaks. :lol: :banana-dance:

Just wondering if anyone has been able to put down the high lap times like I was during the Orange Barrel race. :D

A big "thank you" to Mike, Art, Dave and the rest of the Clover Leaf Racing team for hosting the 2016 NSR Nationals. It was a 24 hour round trip drive for us but we'd do it again in a heartbeat - it was a blast. We had a great time catching up with old friends (Dennis it is hard to believe it's been 10 years since we last saw you) and making some new ones. Clover Leaf Racing is a great venue for these type of events - everyone who participated had a great time. The track has great flow yet takes considerable practice to run quick laps consistently. Special thanks to Don Walker for setting up and managing the live video stream - as usual, a first class production. Congratulations to podium finishers in both classes - there was a lot of close racing. Thank you Quick Slicks for providing the handout tires for this event and for your ongoing sponsorship and support of this great hobby.

Vintage GT Entries


The Ford P68's seemed to be the car to beat in this class. The top running cars had times as fast as the Modern GT cars.

L-R: James Smith (3rd), Dave Wickham (1st), Adam Mashike (2nd)

Modern GT Entries


No one car model seemed to dominate this class - Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Corvette, and Porsche were all very competitive.

We look forward to seeing many of our friends/racers at the upcoming 2017 Michigan 24.
