LOL. Milton's pretty low key most of the time, so you might think he's asleep but he's not. 

 

And it's actually pretty hard to snooze with wing cars zipping nearby every two seconds...

The thrash is on for today's Group 7 race, or as some like to term it, the "Beuf" Pedersen benefit class... LOL!

The Beuf hisself, moving fast as the blurred hand testifies.

Chubby's got his thrash going as well.

Georgia's Kerry Champion, back into wings after a hiatus, has shown this weekend that he hasn't forgotten how to play this game.

Louisville's Mike Krebs is getting his winged missile ready for battle, too.

Not a lot of entries for open? Great turn-outs in the other classes.

 

In qualifying do you let off anywhere?

I'm not for sure, but it seems like other classes had a bigger turn-out than the Nats this summer. Why is that? Was this a big money race?

I think racers made it clear what rules they like. "Hillbilly" and "World" Rules brought them in. Or maybe it was the Sat. morning "All you can eat" breakfast? :laugh2:
 
Great race report, Greg.  :good:
