Mark from Grants Pass joined six locals to race Jalopy and NasTruck at STR on 1/30/17. Track conditions were a bit tight but manageable

NasTruck

Bob and Jack battled it out for the top spot in NasTruck. Both trucks were evenly matched turning fast laps around the 5.4 second mark. In the end, Bob edged out Jack for the win finishing with 85.7 laps. Jack was second, only three sections behind.

Rich and James battled it out for third place. Although Richs truck was a bit quicker, James ran a more consistent race (95.33%). In the end, Rich finished third with 82.7 laps with James almost two laps behind.

Jalopy

Bobs 39 Chevy was the quickest of the bunch by about .1 seconds per lap turning a fast lap of 5.219. Jack, James and Rich were evenly matched tuning laps around 5.300. In fact these three drivers were all within .003 seconds of each other.

Bob finished first with 87.8 laps. Jack was second with 86.3 laps and James was third with 85.5 laps. Rich made a gallant attempt to catch James in the final heat, however, an off with just a few laps to go made the difference.
