November 11th 2017 Area 51 Raceway hosted their annual 24 hours endurance race on their 5-lane 130 foot Ogilvie routed magnabraid track.

The Can-Am team started off strong and was leading the first few heats, but then team Shoreline got it going and never looked back, easily getting the win.

For awhile, the other 3 teams had a close battle for 2nd, then team Quebec suffered a crash that had them losing quite a bit of time for repairs, leaving team Cloverleaf Gearz and Can-Am to fight it out. But then Can-Am had a motor wire come loose, and later on the rear axle shifted, which meant time in the pits. Cloverleaf Gearz drove a steady race to come home 2nd, with Can-Am 3rd and Quebec in 4th.

Some segments of the race were run in the 'dark'.

Great looking track. I had no idea this was in CT.

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

Great race and a great time. Always look forward to this race. It was a very close race one issue with the car and we would have been down a spot or two.
