April's monthly D3 Hardbody races were closely contested, but more importantly, they were a lot of fun for everyone.
Although we missed some of our regular hardbody racers, we were able to run four different hardbody races.

Thanks to Jim and Debby Watterson for their support of hardbody racing at Buena Park Raceway.

Thanks to our race directors, Victor Dubrowski and Keith Tanaka.

Here's the complete race/photo report: http://socald3.phanfare.com/

Thanks again for your excellent reporting Keith!! Hard bodies at BPR are VERY fun!! Laid back racing and door handle to door handle at it's best!! All the new class's with TSR style motors are very fun--- for those that don't know--only the first Nascar class is the old school 36d motors. All the rest of the class's use the FK motors--most in anglewinder set up except for the "Jalopy" class which is true sidewinder!! Plumber style chassis works best-- build a car and come race with us!!
She's real fine, my 409!!!
