T-Birds dominated the ProTrack NASCAR race while Oldsmobiles dominated the Vintage NASCAR race held at STR on 5/1/17. To read the entire narrative and see additional images, see the link http://slotblog.net/...at-str-on-5117/

Rich, I think that it was the drivers, more than the cars.  Good racing! 

 

I think that my Olds may have hit a personal best in the Vintage class.  :D  What happened to  the section data?  I know that I stopped in section 4, on the upslope of the hump.


You can't always get what you want...

Yes, drivers quite a factor, and so is a modicum of luck!

Bob wrote down section data on a piece of paper and I forgot to pick it up. I have contacted him and he will email to me. I will then update the data and edit the post.

As far as performance with your 50 Olds, see the table below. As you can see you turned 88.3 on 6/13/16. Other bests include 84.4 with your 56 Chevy and 87.6 with your 49 Merc. So, in fact you did have a personal best and it will be reflected in the edit.
