SCRRA racers don't forget, the Pete Zimmerman "Festival of Speed" is coming up this weekend, April 21-23.

Friday evening will be RetroPro with tech at 6 PM. Can-Am will run on Saturday with tech at 10 AM and F1 on Sunday with tech at the same time.

All races on the BPR King track and NO hand-out motors at this event so bring out all your 3.8 Hawks you've been hanging on to! 
   
See you there!  :good:

I'm sure Pete was going faster back in the day than these Hawk motors and he did not like the Flat track. :)   

I'm pretty sure Dennis and Earl will be attending and I'll be getting real time updates on Facebook. 

Good luck !!

    In the "Festival of Speed" Can Am action today, a hard fought and close race saw Duran Trujillo victorious over Jason Holmes in 2nd and Sam Rackham 3rd.  Bryan Warmack just held off Dale Yamashita for 4th.

 

  F1 tomorrow.  Thanks Tim for the excellent videos!

 

  A special thanks to Nesta Szabo and Kathy Mitome for the striking Zimmerman poster!  :good:

Let me set the scene: At the end of the previous heat, I hit someone in the same spot, and my car ended up on the floor inside the track near the bank. I prepped my car during the lane change, but (obviously) didn't clean my tires enough. At the start of the next heat, my car just spun its wheels and it slid in place right in front of Mark's car. That's me next to him looking like "uh oh...."

Black and Purple lanes on the Straight are collectors for everything else.

Great weekend and well organized!  :good:

 

I thought I'd give this scene one last edit as you listen to the voices of Mark Franco, Jay Henry, Dennis Rios  and Jason Holmes.  Classic!

I've gotta say, I'm relieved that Mark still made the move-up into the B Main, or there'd be hell to pay for quite some time! (Actually, that move-up would have gone to Dennis Rios, who was WAY ahead of the field until he spun a gear, leaving him in 3rd.)

C Main line up ( not shown - Craig Correia).  It was good to see Craig feeling well enough to race on this particular day.  Craig is still battling a serious illness and we all wish him the best.
