Looking forward to it. This is the first wing race in many years that doesn't conflict with my 1/1 racing. I plan on running all of them including GT12 and Euro. Can't wait to knock off the dust bunnies and tear up some $#it. By the way... it looks like March 18th will be a long day if we don't start till 9pm.

I have a problem about using a spec tire for the two motor open race. I think that there are so few open wing car racers that anyone should be able to race a legal USRA car with any type of tire. I know that there is no monthly wing car problem at Buena Park Raceway other the class F and with the number of entries today there are serious problems racing without turn marshals.

James And Forest,

 

Thanks for putting the Western States Championship together.  Thanks for handling the race directing duties in the Group F class, Forest.    I couldn't stay beyond the Group F class races but had a good time. :good:

Thank you Forrest and James for your all your efforts in keeping this race running another year. BPR Deb and Jim for hosting.
Special Thanks to the Retro regulars that came out to race wings with us. Al Chuck for helping me with the 27L.
And a big thank you to Eric Claburn and Forrest Watchers for making it possible for me to race opens and help on the F car.
It was a pleasure racing with all the racers that competed. Your great Sportsmanship on and off track made it a memorable experience.
