Stock Cars on the King – 12/5/17


December retro racing at MVH will feature just two classes, Stock Cars and Can-Am, and we started the month off this Tuesday running the stockers on the King.  A field of ten presented their cars for tech inspection with the race run on the middle 6 lanes with four marshals.

Recently absent from Tuesday night retro-racing, John Weaver stopped by and borrowed a car from Peter Lentros. After a motor swap and some set-up adjustments he proceeded to post the fastest lap of the night and run away with the race, taking the win by a 9-lap margin. The race for second was between Ricky Pratt and Peter Lentros. Although Peter was a full tenth of a second faster, a more consistent Ricky prevailed to claim 2nd.  The gap to 4th was 8 laps where Dave Panich found himself somewhat alone, four laps up on an epic battle between Rich Girvin and Bobby Blanchette. Bobby was significantly faster, but Richard outdrove him to squeak by for 5th place by just two track sections. 


Doug Uhlman led the remainder of the pack, taking 7th by 3 laps. Richard Payne won a close race with Dan Savage for eighth by one lap while Dick Griffin closed out the field.
