 As has been previously announced, the 2017 Parma Checkpoint Cup will be a couple weeks later than usual. By popular demand the premier event of the SCRRA Retro Racing calender will be held on the weekend of January 27- 29 and will again feature the same racing schedule as last year.

 

 On Friday, January 27, the first race of the weekend will be Retro Anglewinder Coupe on the Flat track with tech inspection beginning at 9:30 AM. F1 will follow also on the Flat track with tech approximately 1 hour after the conclusion of the Coupe race. The last race of the day will be Retro Pro on the King track with tech inspection beginning at about 6 PM.

 

  Saturday, January 28 will feature Can Am as the only race of the day and a little change will be in order here with a JK Hawk Retro 7R7R handout motor race. Each racer will be allowed to purchase a maximum of (3) motors, which will be marked and numbered and racers MUST run the motor or motors they were assigned to when purchased at sign up. The track will be open at 7 AM and tech inspection will be set back a bit to about 10 AM to accomodate motor break in. This being a major SCRRA event, bodies will also be checked for thickness and weight and all bodies must weigh at least 5.5 grams and this includes interior. Bodies found to be too light will be ballasted as necessary.

 

  The final race of this years Parma Checkpoint Cup will be Sunday, January 29, and will be F1 on the King track and it will also be the only race of the day. Tech inspection will begin at 10 AM.  Can Am will be the ONLY race of the weekend using the handout Hawk motor format and all other races will use the normal SCRRA rules concerning motors.

 

 We wish to thank all the sponsors, Parma, JK Products, Alpha, Outisight, DR Products, Samson Classics, Electric Dreams, Retro Tokyo, Racemasters, Mission Trail Insurance, V-Tech, Mill Conroy, Tim Wilkins and Warmack Racing Products!  A special thanks to Jairus Watson, Nesta Szabo and Kathy Mitome for all their work and efforts putting together the fantasic new SCRRA T shirt and the Checkpoint race poster!  Thanks everyone!!

 

  The last SCRRA monthly race before the Checkpoint will be in a couple of weeks on Saturday, January 14.  Can Am and Retro Anglewinder Coupes will run together first on the Flat track followed by a Can Am race on the King track. The SCRRA hopes everyone had a wonderful Christmas and wishes all a very Happy and safe New Years!! :victory:

And now your local weather report:  Despite all the recent rains and still more to come, the weather outlook for the CheckPoint Cup looks good with no rains expected.  In fact, after early next week, no rains expected until at least the first week of February.

 

Have a safe trip everyone!

In today's Checkpoint Flat track races, a super turn-out saw three mains in both the Retro Coupe and F1 events.  

In Retro Coupe, Duran Trujillo showed everyone the way home, followed by Herman James second and Jason Holmes third.  

In F1, Duran prevailed again, with Jerry Johnson second and Dale Yamashita third.
 
James Grinstead was TQ in RetroPro and the race is in progress...

Can-Am tomorrow...

A new name was added to the Checkpoint Cup today as Sam Rackham pretty much had perfect day after being Can-Am TQ and drove a flawless race to a close victory over Jason Holmes!  

Duran Trujillo was a distant third followed by Mill Conroy and Bryan Warmack.
 
F1 up tomorrow...

In today's final race of Checkpoint weekend. TQ Duran Trujillo slowly pulled away from Sam Rackham to earn a well-deserved victory in F1.  

 

Mill Conroy came from the C Main in a super drive to come home third ahead of Jerry Johnson and Alex Freund.

 

Full report with pics up shortly...

WTG, Duran! Sam had a pretty dang good weekend, I'd say.

 

And Mill, coming from the C to take third!? Mighty impressive run in F1.

 

All in all, a very good 2017 Checkpoint.

 

Thanks to all.

Besides Mill coming from the C in F1, another great drive was Dennis Rios coming all the way from the D to contest the Can-Am A Main!   :good:

Want to let Bryan know that his organizing skills and his steady temperament are the best. Thanks for all you do!

 

Had a great discussion with John Cukras - a real gentleman.

 

Big, big thanks to Sam Rackham who set up my F1. I could actually drive the 87.5 gram F1.

 

Bill Taylor was a great help in the pits.

 

Dale Yamashita was fun to talk to as he has been to Houston and was a fan of our food!

 

Tracy Chin was a humorous and stabilizing influence in the pits. Another true gentleman.

 

So many more. I could probably list all the attendees.

 

Plus the weather was super nice, even for someone from a Southern climate.

 

Y'all ought to try it.

Diana,

 

Pitting between you and Tracy, now that was a hoot! Enjoyed talking with you and Tracy. Had a good time as usual, and seemed everyone had a good time.

 

Always enjoy the flat track races, as they are fun. Maybe someday, I'll venture back to the King.

 

Anyways, glad you had a good time Diana. Take care.
