The 5th Sunday in July provided an opportunity for some extra hardbody racing. A lite turnout of racers resulted in a shortened race day. 
The "Mixed" race consisted of 7 entrees, so a round robin of 7 racers using 4 lanes at a time was used. This race had some good close racing along with Gonzo's new 1/25 BRE Datsun 510 "INLINE" almost winning.

Ken Dylke drove his '59 Chevy to victory just 5 feet in front of Gonzo's quick, little Datsun. Jim Lane was 3rd with his Corvette C5-R. 

Thanks to Debby and Jim Watterson (and Eddie) for their support of D3 Hardbody racing at Buena Park Raceway.
Thanks to our race directors today: Hector Gonzalez, Mel Moon, Keith Tanaka.

The race report includes photos of Gonzo's new BRE Datsun highlighting several of his chassis features incorporated in his new inline small car.

Here's the race report: RACE REPORT
