Wish you could figure out how to put some Bruce, Thorne, or Henry driving ability in a jar, I'd buy a whole bunch of it!

I am working on that, Kevin. It will be like Noose Juice for drivers. It involves some of John "Dr.Peppers" Austin's peppers and some other secret stuff. :)

And speaking of Noose Juice I bet we could have been even better if I would have had some.

Kev,

I'd say "No can do, Bubbaloo", but Joe sort of disagrees  below.

Probably the key in you making the A Main. LOL.
 
BTW, your eighth place lap total in the Can-Am PD A Main was the highest eighth/last place total ever at the Sano... so you got that goin' for ya. :)

Greg VanPeenen has asked me to produce the modified nosepiece along with a lightened version of guide brace, time frame to be determined, but realistically, not in the next two weeks.

 
Interesting, I thought that's what R-Geo just released...

Motor hung a brush. Checked it out last night. Must have been from the wind velocity Matt caused.

Yes, John.
 
That is what R-Geo just released. But some prefer the prototypes the way they are. If I have to keep cutting up the older JK chassis by hand I would have to sell them for $275 to $300 or more each.  

That is why I asked Mike if he could have the front section and pans made. Nothing interesting there, just good business. Giving people what they ask for. Some like R-Geo, some like the JK, it is what it is. The was no fee charged for the design and Rick has it out already.

I have more in the works and I will more then likely do the same thing with that. Project name Domesday. But I have to work on a new F1 and RetroPro and that will take awhile. So the other will have to wait. 
 
Regards,

GVP

Cap,
 
Thanks for mentioning that.
 
My mind is still a bit foggy from the weekend.
 
I guess that makes it a sweep in the Puppy Dog / "expert" classes.
 
BTW, the Can-Am A Main, along with a new distance record for the winner, Matt Bruce with 299-1/3 laps, with seven Versa-brackets, also holds the record for total laps by all eight racers, with 2,319 laps (289-7/8 average), surpassing the 2,300 laps (287-3/4 average) achieved previously at the epic Sano 5 A Main.

Congrats to Duran Trujillo on his Can-Am win at the Summer Classic at BP Raceway, using a Chicagoland Raceway 2 degree bracket on his Greg VanPeenen built chassis.
 
The chassis also featured a Chicagoland Raceway coined steel guide tongue brace.

 
Mike,
 
Duran has won four in a row with that car on the King at BP. He is going to get one of the new ones to try shortly.

I would love to see Duran, Matt, Cap, Ralph, Sano Dave, Wes P., Mike Iles, and KVP running in an A Main. I would pay to watch that race.

This is coming along fine.
 
Geary started on the drawing yesterday and I'm guessing will start cutting them sometime today.
 
They will have a feature, which won't effect it being extremely close to the GVP ones originating from the JK nosepiece,
but will give builders a possible useful option to try on extremely fast tracks like Gerding Kings.

Congrats to Cap Henry on winning both F1 and Can-Am at the BRS race at Rt. 93 this past Saturday.

 

Cap used a 1" C/R bracket in F1 and a 3/4" C/R bracket in Can-Am, setting record lap totals in both classes.

Congrats to Tracy Chin on his podium finish at the final Checkpoint Cup, in F1, against the BP regulars, using a Cap Henry built chassis, using the Versa-bracket and a C/R coined steel Versa-tongue.

 

Sidebar comment; IMO, Tracy, getting involved in Retro racing has made it that much cooler. What a ferocious competitor!
