As usual the crew at TTH put on a good show and kept things moving with 35 in Can-Am, 31 in F-1, and 17 in RA/Can-Am+. Good food and race prizes from Parma,and Boogie Bodies are always appreciated. Help from Eric Balicki, Rick Starkey, Jim Leezer, Cheryl and Tina along with the regular crew made things run smoothly,

 

First up was ORS/KOR Anglewinder/ Can-Am+ class (really have to get that shortened somehow) with 17 entries. That I believe is a record number of entries for that class. This class has had  an eventful evolution from X-12 arms to the present Pro Slot 4002 FK motor. Originally less than half the field finished any race to now all usually finish. The FK motor is a good balance with the top drivers running .3 to .4 seconds faster than their Can-Am times and the mid packers .2 to .3 better. Faster but not crazy.

 

Since 17 entries we qualified, taking TQ spot was Willy Custer with a 4,306, second Rick Starkey 4.402, third Greg Fox 4.454. Split into two mains a nine-man B, and an eight-man A Main.

 

In the B Jerry"Boogie"Wyant came out on top with his Can-Am+ car at 182.1, second Jason "Butters" Engel at 180, third to Jason Echelbarger at 176.6.

 

The A Main was the race of the day for close finish. Willy Custer, Greg Fox, and Rick Starkey went at it hammer and tongs for the whole 16 minutes, Willy led the race until the last lane when Greg took the lead and won by one lap, Rick kept them both honest by finishing .7 of a lap behind Willy.

 

Order at the finish:

 

Greg Fox - 200.8 laps

Willy Custer - 199.8

Rick Starkey - 199.1

 

More to be posted later, life is intruding right now.

Next up was qualifying for Can- Am then F1.
 
Can-Am:
1)  Mike "Raisin" Garrett  - 4.568 secs
2)  Bud Bartos  - 4.707
3)  Mark Kitto  - 4.714
 
F1
Mike will have to post this later as the posting on the results section doesn't show qualifying times.
 
On to Can-Am with 35 entries ran as three nine-man heats and eight-man A main.
 
In the D Main Justin Porter at 259.2 edging out Steve Dieters, at 258.1, and Tim Burton at 256.1 for the win.
 
In the C Main Eric Balicki at 265 in another close finish edged out Ralph Middaugh at 264.1, and Gary Echelbarger at 263.1.
 
In the B Main Jason Engel at 274.6 was able to put about two Laps on Boogie at 272.8 with Jason Echelbarger coming in with 271.8.
 
In the A Main Willy Custer must have been running one of those Ken-O triple zapped with radioactive material motors as he basically checked out with an almost five lap lead at 297.5, against a strong field that had Bud Bartos in second with 292.7, and Mike Garrett at 289.1. Just kidding about the motor, Willy. Willy drove his usual hard steady style to take the win.
 
Last up was F1 with 30 entries, three 10-man mains were run to try to save some time.
 
In the C Main A. J. Hoyt led the way with a 256.1 total to lead Brian Kleman at 246.8 and Ralph Middaugh at 241.8 home.
 
In the B Main Eric Balicki won another main by turning in a 269.7 total to Gil Pataky in second with 266 over Eli Ezrow in from Minnesota at 263.5. Welcome back to America, Eli. :)
 
On to the final race of the day, A Main Willy, remembering his close finish in the R/A class, wasn't going to let Greg get that close again turned in a 291.6 lap total to Greg Fox at 285.4 and Jason Engel at 284.7.
 
Pics are HERE.
 
Updated points by the end of the week.

Many thanks as usual to Mike and Cindy McMasters, their extended family, and friends who put on another great ORS race as well as Bill Fulmer and Eric Balicki who tied all the loose ends together and kept things flowing smoothly all day.

 

Very nice car counts in all the classes and lots of new faces which bodes well for another strong season of ORS racing... again.

This was a really fun day of racing and I definitely enjoyed my first time out with the ORS. It was a great time and big thanks to Thom Greene for loaning me an anglewinder, Butters for loaning me tires for Thom's anglewinder to get in through tech, the Tom Thumb staff for putting together a great program, and for all of the technical and moral support I'm getting this season from Bud, Gil, and Steve. 

 

Thank you all!

Yep, another FUN filled day of racing Retro at Tom Thumb Hobbies. Thanks go out to ALL the people behind the scenes that make an event like this so great. Congrats to everyone that came and had a good time. The show ran a little long due to some computer issues, but was a blast for me since I haven't raced since the finale at Tri-State last season. Always great seeing some old friends and meeting new ones in this hobby of ours. I hope everyone made it home ok with no incidents. See some of you at the next one at Tri-State.
