It was a good day of racing. The Ohio boys were really fast but many of the locals had good results as well.

Ken,

I hope you don't mind me inserting the photo showing visually just how close the F1 race was at the end. I felt the finish was remarkable and called to mind the famous 1966 LeMans "blanket finish" that generated so much talk.
 
Thanks for your great report and thank you to the participating racers and Dallas Slot cars for putting on a great first major Retro event.

Hey ya awl,
 
Great racers and turnout. If you want to race quickly, you will be thinking of Texas next year. Hey, Uncle Fred (Correnti... maybe we can team up for a 45 year reunion race?

Thanks for inserting the pic. At the end of the race I had about a 5-6 foot lead on Jay. I was in the white lane and Jay was in the black lane and when the power went off he was punched and almost coasted by me. I thought I was behind Jay and didn't know I was out front until there were only 15-20 seconds left in the race. I was wondering why everyone was clamb ering around the track at the end.

This was the closest finish I've ever had in over 50 years of racing. The out-of-state racers were a lot of fun to compete with. 

Can't wait to do it again.

I was really curious to see how our local program measured up against a more "seasoned" program. While there were gear/tire/motor anomalies that affected some of the guys(local AND out-of-towners), I honestly feel that the best of our Texas racers can be legitimately competitive nationally. Our local program isn't quite as strong overall but we have good reason to be pleased with our progress. In both F1 and Can-Am, we managed to fill 3 of the top 8 positions, including Ken's win in F1. I appreciate the guys travelling so far to come down and "school" us on how it's done; it's just these type of experiences, competing against the best from elsewhere, that will help us raise our game to a higher level. Thanks for coming down to play in our sandbox, guys!

 

P.S. - For some of you guys that I'd met at the 3 Sano races I attended a few years back, I'll have you know that I used a Ti-22 body in the Can-Am race! :shok:   LOL  No "jail door commemorative chassis"... no Lotus 40 bodies... I wasn't trying to make any retro "statement"... just be as competitive as I could. Wait 'til NEXT year..............

Jay is a hard guy to beat you did great Ken!


A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.
