The Hillbilly Howl at Slotcars-R-Us kicked off Thursday evening with the F-Amateur and F-Pro classes.

 

I had hoped to report this race in person, but am a little under the weather and headed off for a little medical advice today. Mucho thanks to Tracy Brown and Milton Gamble for working to supply the race results during the event so I can post them here.

 

Although the results given below suggest these classes were run in the Round-Robin format, that's not the case. The lap counting system used at SlotCsrs-R-Us automatically reports the results of the separate Mains in a combined printout when the rank by total laps option is specified.

 

Long-time NASCAR fans should not be surprised by the names of the first two qualifiers!

 

F-Amateur qualifying

 

1) Jeff Green - 2.730 secs

2) Ernie Irvan - 2.789

3) Trey Chmielewski - 2.825

4) Jerry Milliken - 2.848

5) Walker McAnulty - 2.855

6) Jay Frost - 2.914

7) Paul Peterson - 2.963

8) Marc Stratton - 3.022

9) Jeff Bigelow - 3.069

Nice to see my friend Jerry Milliken make the podium. Looks like the race for sixth place was a nail-biter, too.

Based on posts I'm seeing on Facebook, there will be a lot of racers coming throigh the door today, including one from north of the border.

 

First class today is Hillbilly Box 12 and it looks like 28 entries have gathered on the tech table.
