Kudos to Port Jeff Raceway on pulling off another Retropalooza, under the trying circumstances we are living under, this year.

CR Low CG Red Fox guides were used by 17 of the 18 podium finishers, including winners, Keith Libby, Jordan Temple(first Retro win, ever), and Joe "Chubby" Salzman(3X).

Ed Sohl also used CR 2 degree tongues and CR Versa motor brackets on the 3 winning chassis, he built, for Chubby.

Big thanks to Edsel on using these parts.

It's been a while since I posted in this thread.

 

Congrats to Joe "Chubby" Salzman, on his 2 TQ's and wins, at Retro East Event #4, at Port Jeff Raceway.

 

CR Low CG guides swept the podium.(Doug "Bent Rim" Bauer, Brian "X-Pro" Cochrane, Tony "Hammer" Melendez,  & Keith "I Need a Cool Nickname" Libby)

 

Chubby also used CR CR086 double flatted axles, and had CR 2 degree guide tongues and CR Versa-brackets, on his Ed "Edsel" Sohl built chassis.

Retro racers, winning with these guides, have been so common, especially in Retro East, I've been lax on congratulating them.

But I will congratulate Jeff Bonanno, Mike Bresett, and Danny Zona, on TQ'ing and winning all 4 races, at this year's Southern Retro Rumble, at Fast Eddie's.
