We rang in 2018 at Haven Raceway in style with the Second Annual Haven Hangover Enduro! With 9 teams representing 23 racers, ranging in age from single digits to "mind your own business", it was truly an afternoon to remember.

Deisenroth - 9th place, 1034 laps

One of several family teams, coming home in 9th was Fastraxxx's Matt and Larry Deisenroth. While this father/son team ran into several issues along the way while learning the tricky Haven Hillclimb, it was a great return to traveling racing for Larry and a welcome sight to see Matt at another "away" race.

Team G&H - 8th place, 1105 laps

A four racer team with a wide range of skill levels, Team G&H represented Haven's own Racing Halfhills, Dan and Haley, as well as rookies Scott and Peyton Goins. While a train of car damage hampered their result to 8th, everyone including young Peyton acquitted themselves with a smile on this hard-working team.

You Pick One - 7th place, 1126 laps

The 7th spot was held by reformed drag racers Mike and Bailey Ables, who were making only their second road racing start since stepping away from the drag racing side of slot car racing. Their GT1 machine was badly torn up, finishing the race with only half its spoiler and having lost rear wheels at key moments, but an impressive result for a rookie team.

Team Manta - 6th place, 1245 laps

The other father/son team in the race, Team Manta was Gary and Sean Sutorius racing like they race best, last minute and smooth. Losing nearly a whole heat to their motor getting knocked free in a bad hit, this team was still one of five teams to post a 4.8 second lap during the race and was a contender on a tough day. Not bad for not having the car together until Sunday night!

Fastraxx CF - 5th place, 1250 laps

A strong team from our Fremont neighbor, Great Lakes ISRA front runner Rob Voska and some dead weight (Rob's requested term), Fastraxx owner Chris Earnhardt, turned up to race hard and ran in the lead pack the whole day long, beating out the Sutoriuses by only five laps after two hours of racing!

ROPO Racing - 4th place, 1274 laps

Just shy of the podium, Ron Vincek, Justin Porter, and John Halfhill had a great showing in the lead battle and salvaged a positive result after a major shunt on the top straight badly bent their chassis and broke their guide flag. Better luck next year!

Race O' Rama - 3rd place, 1298 laps

The surprise performance of the day, the three man team from North Baltimore's Race O' Rama showed excellent speed and raced clean all day long. Keith Nelson, Jim Pace Jr, and Allan Gallacher conquered the Hillclimb with an enduro run to be proud of, the second fastest lap of the race - by only 0.000046 seconds!) and even did so running a .010" Parma Zonda body.

H&H Racing - 2nd place, 1350 laps

It came as no surprise that the Haven Raceway juggernaut of H&H Racing fielded a team in the Hangover, and with Jeff and Jeffrey Henes, backed up by AJ McCall, big things were expected. Sure enough, this team was never out of the hunt no matter who was at the driver's stand. Posting the fastest lap of the race and claiming a podium in the first enduro race for both AJ and Jeffrey alongside Jeff, that makes two 2nd's in 2 years for H&H.

Slick in the Slot - 1st place, 1367 laps

They need little introduction and the lime green machine was known to be a force to be reckoned with. Gil Pataky and Bud Bartos showed the skill, speed, and humor all day long that makes these two wily veterans this year's Haven Hangover Winners!

With 2 hours, 11,049 laps, and a fantastic lunch by Kelly and Haley Halfhill in the books, the massive turnout for the Haven Hangover was a humongous day for all of us. Here's to more great racing, more fun times, and a happy 2018 from all of us at Haven Raceway and Hobbies!
