Sunday's D3 Hardbody races at Buena Park Raceway had a lot of close racing, a lot of crashes and another racer recorded his first ever sub 5 second lap.
Quite a crashfest today as many racers seemed to overdrive their cars. Regardless, it was a lot of fun as usual. Sammy Gallo joined in the fun racing in his very first D3 Hardbody race. 
 
The GTP race was won by Phil Nyland with Jim Lane 2nd and Tim Herrera 3rd. Phil also recorded his first ever sub 5 second lap (black lane) driving a Gonzo articulating pan chassis Sauber Mercedes C9.
The GTP "Racer Handicap" podium had Steve Leibrecht 1st, Phil Nyland 2nd and Jim Lane 3rd. Steve drove a loaner car to win (Gonzo DVD car). 
 
The Mixed race was won by Phil Nyland (Short Track NASCAR) with Keith Tanaka 2nd (Trans Am) and Jim Lane 3rd (Trans Am).
The Mixed race, "Racer Handicap" podium had Peter LaBarba 1st (Short Track NASCAR), Phil Nyland 2nd (Short Track NASCAR) and Michael Kale 3rd (GTR).
 
Thanks to Robert Range (and Eddie) for their support of D3 Hardbody Racing at Buena Park Raceway.
