Mike Swiss, Chicagoland Raceway, showed  me how to crop the pictures but for some reason my phone would not let me do it so they come up right. Sorry, it'll be more complete next week. We only had one race and that was the GTP race and it was nice

Last night at Chicagoland Raceway in GTP and group F we had seven racer the competition is getting pretty equal between in both classes
In GTP we had Dale Lipe finishing first Dave gass The Gas Man! 2nd and Alex block rounding out third for the podium.
In group f a very fast racing with Mike Iga showing his superiority with very fast times, Mike Iga in first Jim Crider in second and Bernard Powell rounding out the podium in third,
Mike Iga running a 3.283, Jim Crider not far behind with a 3.341 which is very good considering he doesn't run Wing cars very often he is one of the better drivers, and a note to mention we had Dale Lipe in the mix with the F Class Cars running a very very good race remembering his old days of wing car racing,

Last night at Chicagoland April 4th we did not have a full field of GTP racer but we had a very exciting and fast race as expected dale Lipe, continued his domination over the field with blistering Fast Times, so the race was left up for the second and third Podium spots.
The wing race was equally as impressive with three races going into the 3.1 s at given times on the on the clean and well prepared track, and there again Mike Iga showed his preparedness by outclassing the field but everyone running fast

Wednesday night April 18th at Chicagoland we had for for racing GTP and 5 for racing f-class Wingcar,
GTP was a very fast pace race many lead changes throughout the race, Dave Gass, The Gas Man came in first Andy Fisher in 2nd and Bernard Powell in third, with Alex block finishing up the field in 4th, but to mention Alex block had one of the faster cars in the race but ran into difficulty which put him in the fourth place everyone is running very fast in GTP it could be anyone's night at any given time which makes for fun racing,
And now we get to Wing racing as usual Michael Iga comes in with very fast cars, but he didn't have dominance tonight it was a very close and tight race, with a few lead changes throughout and very fast times me and Alex both had trouble on purple and black but we were both very fast Michael Iga shared his way to Victory by stating you must stay in to win, LOL Michael Iga taking the win Alex Block in second Dave Gass third
