A 5th Sunday in August provided an extra hardbody race day for D3 Hardbody Racing at Buena Park Raceway.
A good turnout with two new hardbody racers, Jeff Whisenand and Cedric Collins, and a record setting day for Bob Krigbaum made for an exciting, fun race day at BPR.
Bob Krigbaum set a new total lap record for D3 hardbodies with 258 laps (GTP class). This is the best lap total of any D3 hardbody racing class. Great racing Bob!
"Fast" Eddie Shorer tied the 3 C's total lap record of 245 laps driving a Gonzo Corvette.
Hector "Carbonzo" Gonzalez raced his new Mini Cooper against the much larger cars and ran fast but had some big wall blasts which broke up his new paint job on the Mini.
Gonzo decided to power his Mini using a Mini Brute motor (instead of the TSR D3 motor). Less horsepower, but the milder motor provides a smoother handling Mini Cooper.
Thanks to Jim and Debby Watterson for their support of D3 Hardbody Racing at Buena Park Raceway.
Thanks to our race directors, Victor Dubrowsky and Keith Tanaka.
