Stock Car

Just four entries for this class and as usual Bobby Robinson's full-scratch Stock Car was the class of the field. All of the SERRA racers are scratching their heads trying to figure out how this relatively simple Stock Car chassis works so well everywhere. It's always hooked up perfectly, even at Hot Slots where Bobby admitted he was running Wonder rubber on the car for the first time ever!

Welcome to first-time SERRA racer John Montgomery.

Bobby Robinson's first place car. This chassis has been the scourge of Retro Stock Car racing in SERRA!

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Can-Am

 

Nine entries for Can-Am, so a nine-man round-robin was in order.

 

Nice to see Ray Gann Jr, son of the original owner of Central Raceway in Lavergne, TN, where the Black Snake track resided for so many years.

Are there any photos of Bobby Robinson's Stock Car chassis? I'd like to see how it compared to Mike Katz's simple one that runs so good in Retro East.

Yes, I was not able to stay at the race for the whole event and others took pics of the last two classes for me (there's no printer on the SRT system at Hot Slots) and I'm posting the results as I get pics from a couple of people (thank you, Bobby Robinson and Chris Barnes!). I have podium and car shots and will go back and add them after I get the numbers posted.

Formula 1

 

Nine racers qualified but Eddie Fleming decided not to race, I suspect so he could help to marshal, which is just the kind of person Eddie always is. So a full eight-man field.

Thanks, Cheater. Looking forward to photos as you can.

 

As I recall Bobby's Stock Car is much like Katz's simple Stock Car. Simple straight rails and tilting pans. Photos to follow. I think.
