Great Lakes ISRA 2017-18 Series Race #1

 

November 4, 2017, the first race in the Great Lakes ISRA Series was held at Mid-America Raceway and Hobbies in Naperville, IL.
 

The first event of the day was the JRL/F1 race on the former D.J.'s Hot Slots Chris Dadd's built 'LTD' Track (eight entries).

1 - Chuck Gambo 246 laps
2 - John Miller 241
3 - Dale Lipe 238 

 

Next race was the Open-12 contest also on the LTD (nine entries).

1 - Dale Lipe 276 laps
2 - Kevin Van Pelt 269 
3 - Rob Voska 265

4 - John Miller 265.0001

 

Third (Rob) and fourth (John) positions in this race were decided literally by the smallest margin that I have ever seen. It was nearly a dead heat.

The ES-24 Race was not run due to lack of entries and a wish to get the race day over with reasonably early.

 

The final race of the event was B-Production (nine entries).

Series; Great Lakes ISRA
Track; Chicagoland

Great Lakes ISRA was at Chicagoland this past weekend.  The temp was warmer than last month but the racing was hot with some new records being equaled but not broken.
Dale Lipe is working hard to improve every aspect of his program. Great to see you and Geary working so hard.  That's what makes it fun.  Who knows if Chuck would make it 5 minutes before tech closes he might have podiumed in all the classes.



We ran all 4 classes.  JRL was up first with Dale setting the pace.

Second was Open 12.  It was a fast class with some great racing action.

Dale Lipe added his name twice this month to the GLISRA track records on the Fiedler Flat @ Chicagoland Raceway.

 

Nice job Dale!
