Format is as follows: seventeen entries. Four top qualifiers seed into the Main. Next four qualifiers seed into the Semi. The remaining nine are in the Consi (as a nine-man round robin). Four move up from the Consi to the Semi. Four move-up from the Semi to the Main.

Consi Results

1) Chuck Gambo - 246 laps, best lap of 5.269 secs in yellow
2) Geary Gaspord - 239, 5.442 in yellow
3) Lee Verdich - 232, 5.598 in blue
4) Ron Van Wagnen - 229, 5.492 in green
5) Guillermo Suar - 224, 5.718 in blue
6) Joe "Noose" Neumeister - 5.711 in white
7) Eric Balicki - 209, 5.867 in blue
8) Keith Brown - 200, 6.148 in blue
9) Ken Barry - 198, 6.480 in blue

Gambo, Gaspord, Verdich, and Van Wagnen will move up to the Semi.

The racing is on hold at the moment so participants can consume the fabulous food catered in by Portillo's well known restaurant. This is easily the best food I've ever eaten in a slot car raceway!!

WTG, RALPH!!! Looks like there is a new sherriff in town in SERRA...

To do that well against the local crowd in Chitown is no less than remarkably good driving.

Thanks Larry,

It was the same car that I ran in Can Am on the Flat track at the Sano II. And you are right, I actually had all of my cars built before the race. (hard to believe) I am enjoying the race so much more this time because I have time to socialize a bit with all of the great racers from around the country. See you at the R-4 3

Cheers, Ken B)

Dave and Howie,

Congratulations on your finishes. You guys are the best, and we hope to see you Dudes at the Checkpoint Cup. It was only 85 degrees here today at BPR, so enjoy the weather where you are ?

Greg is taking, as I am, a lot of flak here and there, but he is doing a damn good job or reporting the nitty and the gritty. ;)

Wait. Is that how one spells "nitty"?

Ralph and Jay did fantastic on the flat track. They were driving it like it was their home track. Everybody in the Main drove a great race it was fun watching the race even though I only saw a little part of the track.
