Saturday night at R-A Speedway!

Postby TuscoTodd » Sun Jan 21, 2018 3:42 pm

A number of us were invited back to Hangtime's home in Cuyahoga Falls, OH for an evening of food, fun and laughs on his "still not officially named" Max Trax track last night. :D
After some shake down action and some tasty eats - we kicked off the racing with the Stock T-jet class!

The track:

The track was fast last night and handling was at a premium making it VERY easy to overdrive things if you weren't careful! Some tried to use 8 wheels in the corners to help make up for it, but that didn't always help... ;)
:lol:

When the checkered flag dropped - the finishing order was as follows:

Always an entertaining class to run!

The wider stance and the stickier tires made for a notably quicker pace with the Super Stock class and some GREAT door to door action! In fact - the finish came down to literally INCHES with the top two cars finishing same lap, same segment! :o

At the drop of the checkered - the finishing order was:

Definitely some great racing!

The final class for the evening were the "Friday Night Cars"!
These are lightly modified Auto World / Johnny Lightning cars that border on the "box stock" side of things and are a hoot to race as they are definitely a "driver's" car as they have more power than even the wide slip on tires can handle making for some great door to door and nerf and go type racing!
:lol:

The cars and their drivers were:
Hangtime, our host, running his copper Grand Sport Corvette:
Image

Russell May driving his green and black Challenger:
Image

Breadman with his silver and black Camaro:
Image

Rusty "RJ" Jackson piloting his white and blue Grand Sport Corvette:
Image

Steve Reed also running a white and blue Grand Sport Corvette:
Image

And me - making it a strong field of Corvettes - run a blue and white Grand Sport Corvette:

Pack racing on the last lap!

Lots of great door to door action in what is a VERY fun and close field of cars!
When the checked flag dropped the field sorted out as follows:

Definitely a great way to finish off the evening's racing!
