Yes, actually you do have to open an account if you want to see the camera, but not if you're OK with just the lap counter.

The Cheater has finally arrived in White House, TN, which is experiencing some of the nicest spring weather I've seen this year. Everything's greening up and it's actually a little hot if one is in the sunshine.

With the hand-out motor format, all the racers are trashing to get their horsepower limbered up and tested. As Tracy mentioned, the fast guys seem to be in the 3.6 range, although it has been reported to me that one racer has dipped into the 3.5s.

Took a few candid shots of the pits which I'll post after I do one important task: have lunch!

Back soon...

Notes from my office as the sun sets. Bright sunshine and 60 degrees here so I'm not too jealous of the weather in TN.
 
No big deal to sign in for the stream. Way too wide a lens (unless it's primarily a security camera). Picture quality is a little fuzzy.
 
But I am watching!

After a very good Mexican lunch and a small adult beverage (thanks for the treat, Milton Gamble!), I've spent a little time watching the racers practicing.

With enough racers here now that open lanes are starting to be hard to come by, what impresses me the most is how incredibly equal the cars are in terms of speed and laps times. No one is gaining separation going down the straight.

It won't surprise me if the racing tomorrow generates numerous instances of multiple cars finishing on the same lap. The premium is definitely going to be on racing as clean as possible, and avoiding as much trouble as humanly possible.

If I was racing, I think tonight I'd plan to sacrifice a Retro car in some sort of quasi-voodoo ceremony to try to please Dame Lady Luck. This race is probably one of those times where one would rather be lucky than good.

Getting down to the wire, qualifying-wise. Tech opens in a little more than an hour, with the official timed runs starting at 8 PM. Racers will have the usual one minute to rip off their best lap time.

Based on what I'm hearing, TQ should end up in the mid-to-high 3.5 range.

Tech opened for the race about fifteen minutes ago.

rwc9.jpg

If Chubby wasn't first in line, he was close, which suggests he's "ready to rumble." Probably not a good sign for the other competitors...

I was told there are 32 entry forms, but have heard that not everyone who filled out a form may race. Stab in the dark says 30 give or take. Once tech closes, I'll post the final entry number.

The camera position is a problem, too far away, and easily blocked.

 

It should be returned to the position facing the drivers, where it was for a short time on Friday.

 

Cheers and good luck,

It's Can-Am race day at SlotCars-R-Us 'The Track.'

 

Here's the format: 30 racers will compete in four Consis (or Quarterfinals), two 8-man races and two 7-man races, with alternate seeding based on last night's qualifying. The top four finishers in each Consi will seed into two 8-man Semis. The top four in each Semi will seed into the final Main.

 

The final Main will be three minutes on, two minutes off. All other races will be two on, two off.

Here's the results of last night's concours judging. Since there wasn't a five-year old girl in the building, some grey-haired, half-blind geezer from Norcross, GA, was tapped to select the top three in Can-Am concours.

 

concpod.jpg

 

L to R, third place: Paul Peterson, second place: Bob Hughes, first place: Jay Loftin (Bob Hughes paint).

 

Wanted to include a detail shot on the second place car's interior, which featured an added steering wheel segment. Most of the interior is done with vinyl tape rather than paint. Nice work, Bob!

Jay Loftin's Bob Hughes-painted Can-Am was the only Hughes paint in the class (except for Bob's own car, of course) and Bob gifted Jay with this coupe body in appreciation.

The move-up racers have cleared tech and the B Semi has just started. Extremely clean racing compared to the Consis. Semis are still utilizing the two on, two off format.

Can-Am A Semi results:

 

1) Joe "Chubby" Salzman - 253.80 laps, best lap of 3.660 secs in green

2) Ross Scharf - 251.02, 3.678 in orange

3) Jeff Nale - 246.71, 3.687 in green

4) Terry Watson - 243.06, 3.787 in green

5) Casey Dill - 233.17, 3.763 in orange

6) J. C. Martin - 216.71, 3.640 in blue

7) Stan Hutson - 213, 3.688 in green

8) John Weaver - 2, 4.188 in red

 

Salzman, Scharf, Name, and Watson will advice to the final Main.

 

The final Main will utilize three minute heats and will begin after the racers have a bit of practice and the cars are re-teched. From all considerations, the Can-Am final Main should be a heck of a Retro race!

Great run, guys. Looks like the motors didn't slow down at all.


A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.
