The Flexi National Racing Series made it's 4th stop of the 2017 series at Tri State Slot Car Raceway on October 14, 2017 in Middletown, Ohio. A total of 61 entries in the LMP, Stock Car and GTP classes.

 

The FNRS would like to thank Terry Rice and Tri State Slot Car Raceway for hosting the event. Many Thanks to Rick Blackson, Butters and the Tri State staff and helpers for a great time and lots of fun at this event. Thanks to ALL of the racers who traveled near and far and participated in this event. We had several familiar faces and many new faces at this event and it was great to see so many racers from the past as well as the present at this event. It was great to catch up with a few of the spectators that I have'nt seen in awhile too like Gary Adams, Steve Dieters and Rob Garland. The 2017 FNRS Series now heads South, to it's final stop of a very successful first season, to Florida on November 4th for the final event of the year at Fast Eddies in Pinellas Park, Florida.

The new location was great and as usual Gary Gerding did a fantastic job reworking the King track.

LMP qualifying had Bobby Beauchemin of North Carolina smashing the track record with a time of 3.662. Second quick was Jason "Butters" Engle with a 3.774.

 

LMP concours winner was Anthony Brown with Thom Green 2nd and Shame Parent 3rd.

The LMP C Main was a close race in the early going between locals Andy Quatromani, Thom Greene, Frank Ferlet and long time and past slot car racing champion Ben McGuire. Andy ran into gear trouble and that set him back a bit while Thom and Ben distanced themselves from Frank. At the end it was Ben McGuire winning with the C Main with 227 laps.

The LMP B Main was a battle between Eric Shirey, Eli Ezrow, Terry Watson, Brandon Barricello & Anthony Brown. By the halfway point it was a three man battle with Eric, Eli and Brandon making some distance from the rest of the field. At the end it was Eric Shirey winning the B main with 237 laps. Eric waited patiently to see where he wound stack up against the A Main lap totals.

The LMP A Main looked to be a Bobby Beauchemin benefit after the first two heats with Bobby pulling out to a 5 lap lead over the field. In the 3rd heat Bobby took a hard hit and his car was never the same. That handed the lead to Jason "Butters" Engle with Shane Parent hot on his tail. Butters and Shane battled nose to tail the rest of the race with Shane having a slight lead over Butters going into the final heat. In the final heat, Shane  deslotted and Butters took the lead and the overall LMP win with 243.07 laps over Shane's 243.03.

Stock Car qualifying followed the LMP races and it was again Bobby Beauchemin on top with a track record run of 3.627, Tim Baatz 2nd with 3.657. Terry Watson also made it into the 3.6's during qualifying.

 

Concours was won by Shane Parent with Ralph Thorne 2nd and James Johnson 3rd.

The Stock Car B Main was a round robin race with 9 starting and only four running at the finish "Talladega Style". A very messy race and the top survivor was Guy "Elmo" Vallance winning the B Main with 224 laps.

The Stock Car A Main saw very close racing between everyone the entire race. Pole sitter Bobby Beauchemin, Tim Baatz and Terry Watson drafted away from the group of Butters, Eric Shirey, Shane Parent and Lonnie Baatz early on and settled into a great race up front. By the halfway point it was Beauchemin and Tim Baatz drafting, still pulling away as Terry Watson was falling back and into the clutches of Butters. When the dust settled it was Tim Baatz winning the A Main and overall with 249 laps over Bobby who had 246. Fastest Race Lap Terry Watson 3.721.

The GTP A Main started out with Ron Hershman out front after heat one. Then Shane Parent found his way into the lead after second heat. Ron caught up and led again until the sixth heat when Ralph Thorne snuck into the lead. At the end it was very close with Ralph Thorne winning with 271 laps, Ron and Shane were seperated by a few feet just one lap behind.

Great report Ralph!

 

Looks like Mossetti chassis are the way to go if you want to be competitive.   :secret:
