August's D3 hardbody races saw some new cars along with a record setting performance.
Several regular hardbody racers were not present but the turnout was good on a very hot day in Buena Park, Calif.
Eddie Shorer set a new total lap record for the GTP class as he ran two races bettering his previous lap total record.
A new VW Beetle under two litter Trans Am car was built and raced by Craig Gilbert. Although Craig's VW was not "Herbie", it ran fast. Russell Van Wyck ran his new '57 Chrysler which looks similar to the Batmobile. He had a lot of fun making it difficult for others to pass him in the turns as the big, long, Chrysler seemed to take up three lanes while turning.
Even with several regular racers missing, the turnout was good as many were obviously getting ready for our 5th Hardbody Nats at BPR on Oct. 17-18th.
Thanks to Jim and Debby Watterson for their support of D3 Hardbody racing at Buena Park Raceway.
Thanks to our race directors, Roger Uusitalo and Keith Tanaka
