Foster's Race Report 29 May 2014
By Steve Walker
 
This was the night of the Steve Foster Birthday "Crash fest!" 
We had a good turnout with some of our racing buddies we haven't 
seen in a while (like Justin and Scott) and the track condition was ideal. 
AND Foster had new parts on the wall and in the counter! AND birthday cake!
 
GTS Race
 
We ran a 14 heat Round Robin. Dennis took first with a lead of 5 laps. 
I came in second. Mark had third. Earl had the fast lap time 
(his motor looks a little too fast to me :). 
Steve Foster had mechanical failure and DNFd.
 Returning racers Scott, Justin, Rich and Don turned in very good runs.  
 
1. Dennis Rios     Laps 368  Best time 3.452      
2. Steve Walker    Laps 363  Best time 3.570 
3. Mark Wampler    Laps 358  Best time 3.569
4. Earl McCutcheon Laps 354  Best time 3.398 *Fast lap
5. Scott Mayfield  Laps 342  Best time 3.678
6. Justin Rich     Laps 317  Best time 3.679
7. Steve Foster    Laps 280  Best time 3.569 *DNF
8. Rich            Laps 251  Best time 3.898
9. Don French      Laps 169  Best time 4.398
 
  
Retro Race
 
We ran a Crash and Burn, with some volunteer turn marshalling. 
Mark took first, with a lead of 16 laps. Steve Foster was second, 
with Dennis at third. Mark also had the fast lap, in fact his fast lap 
was quicker than his fastest GTS lap. 
 
I had completely rebuilt the rear end on my Dragonslayer chassis since
last week. Twice my car got slammed into the wall and the rear end got 
bound up. I lost at least three heats working on the car, but I did finish. 
I really need to reinforce that rear axle carrier. 
 
1. Mark Wampler    Laps 356  Best time 3.508 *Fast lap
2. Steve Foster    Laps 340  Best time 3.679
3. Dennis Rios     Laps 328  Best time 3.679     
4. Scott Mayfield  Laps 320  Best time 3.624
5. Earl McCutcheon Laps 314  Best time 3.679
6. Rich Darling    Laps 213  Best time 4.226
7. Steve Walker    Laps 195  Best time 3.734  
 
 
Steve Foster plans to have the raceway open next week.
