Twenty-one entries. The top four qualifiers, who seed directly into the Main, are:

1) "Sano" Dave Fiedler - 4.677 secs
2) Jay Guard - 4.741
3) Ron "The Devil" Hershman - 4.744
4) Ken Swanson - 4.754

Here's the race format. Top four qualifiers seed into the Main. Second four qualifiers seed into the Semi. Next five qualifiers seed into the A Consi. Remaining eight qualifiers go into the B Consi.

Top three finishers from the B Consi move up to the A Consi. Then the top four finishers from the A Consi advance to the Semi. The top four finishers in the Semi join the four seeds in the Main. Clear as mud? (No, I don't know where Swiss gets this stuff... LOL!!!)

The video is awesome for the Sano this year. It needs to be a staple for all big retro races from here on. I found myself yelling at Howie to get back to the panel when the power came on!

The video feed looks much better to me today. Yesterday it looked like one second of video then a two second pause. Today I can actually watch the race. This is really cool... thanks to everyone who made this happen!

Ustream has just added us to the iPhone viewer application, Tony. Give it a try now.

Ustream also made this stream a recommended stream on their home page. We just spiked at over 850 viewers!!! Wow!!!

Tony,

Looks like even though Ustream indicated they were adding us to the iPhone app, they didn't actually do so. Sorry...

Great race, Ron. Jay had it but had to fix his braid. Nice run by Sano as well.


Thanks Matt..... I had it until my controller quit on yellow and I only ran 32 laps and at that point I gave it back to Jay. Then Jay gave it back to me. LOL Noose was pitting him and Noose by total accident put Jay's car on the wrong lane after a lane change. The power came on and KA-POW....... there went Jay.

We were tied, side by side at the start of the last heat.... I was on red and Jay on the dreaded black lane.

The rest is history as they say.
