That's correct, what is called "waffling" is when the barrel is drilled perpendicular to the axle line. "Drilled" is when the back face of the hub is drilled parallel to the axle line.

I am 99% sure that they ran a six and five man round robin. Unfortunately, if this is true, it would not qualify.  :( Which sucks!!

Too bad they didn't run a Semi and a Main. 653 is big even with five guys. A 2.080 fast lap is friggin fast in 15s. Backed up with a bunch of 2.10s. Serious speed!

The above seems like a contradiction of terms.

Anyway, racing looks great. I'm real impressed how close the totals were in this race and especially Hillbilly Box 12.

The unfortunate thing about that tire is that it is a short discount, which takes the money out of the raceways hands but Koford still gets paid. That's why some raceways won't carry it.

 
This also why the price is lower...

Brad,

 

Understand I was only repeating what I was told. In any case, I am not aware that there are actually any recognized standards for wing car 'world records'. Are you?

Interesting that the HB box cars were faster than I15. The short stack of Gp 12 arms would probably explain it.

First class on the agenda for today is Group 27 Lite, which brought 36 entries to the tech table.

There wasn't a five-year old girl in the building to judge concours, so they settled for the second best choice.... me! It's a lot harder picking the top three out of 36 cars than it looks...

Group 27L concours

27lconc.jpg

First: Doug Bauer
Second: Wally Fleming
Third: Tony Griffin

Doug is not happy with me. "Winning concours is the kiss of death for the racing," he claims. Bent, if that's the way you feel, you need to use really ugly bodies! LOL.

Qualifying is in progress, with Georgia's on Tommy Flythe at the head of the line.

It is believed that the current 27 Lite 'world record' qualifying lap is 1.773, thus Rich Curnutte's TQ is a scant .004 secs behind that record.

Actually not really. In the race the fastest lap for 15s was 2.080 and for HBB was 2.186. Most 15s were in the 2.1s and the HBBs were 2.2s. Can't go by qualifying.

Intl 15s are still faster but it's much closer then with USRA Boxstock, and most of the increase in speed is the difference in weight.

One of the visitors to the Hillbilly Nats is an 1:1 racer whose notable accomplishments can't be obscured by the beard he now wears. Jeff Green won the 2000 Busch Series Championship (by 616 points!) and finished second in that series twice in other years. He was also won the pole at the Daytona 500 in 2003, among other significant successes in various stock car racing series including NASCAR's top division.

 

Jeff was also the Nashville Speedway track champion in 1990. The previous year's track champion at Nashville was Nicky Formosa, a regular racer at SlotCars-R-Us, who is also present at the raceway today.

Jeff was an active slot racer for several years in the Monroeville, North Carolina, area, though he indicated he's not had a controller in his hand for a while now.

I actually raced against Jeff at the WKA Spring Nationals in Charlotte, NC, in 2002 in Masters Can. I think he finished fifth or sixth. No comment on where I finished.
