Wonderful racing this past weekend at Hudson Valley Raceway. The best, closest, fastest racing I have seen in many years.

 

Much thanks to Hudson Valley Raceway and all the participants for presenting an enjoyable and competitive event!

Just another typically fabulous Retro East series race. After nine years, Noose knows how to get it done!

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Agreed, Gregory. Noose seemed to be everywhere at the same time, assisting racers and keeping the program on point. I wonder if he even had a chance to work on his own stuff.

As we often say, Noose is the hardest working guy in Retro racing!

Noose adheres to the "seven Ps" principle.    :)   Because he does have to spend the time doing tech while everyone else is still working on their cars, he's always well prepared, and gets his final tuning in early.

 

Everyone who races in Retro East, or any of the IRRA major events that he techs for, owes him a huge debt of gratitude. I doubt anyone else would put in the kind of effort he has for what is now coming up on 10 years.

Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.

I would like to acknowledge the great turn-out from the NERR racers, many of whom had to travel a great distance.

 

Cheers,
