Concours – Jay Guard 2nd, Carman Spence 1st, Don Bonanno 3rd

 

Race format was 2 minute heats on the oval. With 15 entries we qualified the field into two mains with the winner in the B main advancing into the A.

The last driver to qualify on the orange lane was Rick Moore and he went to the top of the time sheet setting a new track record of 3.507!

 

The B main race was fun. By midway it had developed into two groups of four racing amongst themselves. Jay Guard drove a great race and managed to avoid most wrecks for the win.

The A main was fast paced and had the local racers out in force. Jeff Bonanno had a well-deserved win fighting off Denny Neighbor up until the fifth heat. Ed Hoffman finished in 2nd and Rick Moore in 3rd.

The B main had the rare appearance of Jay Guard after a bad qualifying session. Jay settled in and won the main. 2nd through 4th was a real tight battle for the move up spot. Don Bonanno had a great drive and just beat Shawn Naughton by one track section to secure 2nd place.

6.24.18 GRRR CanAm A Main Final Result.jpg

The A main saw Jeff take an early and slight lead over Rick. After heat 3 Rick would take the lead and not look back. It wasn't an easy victory as there was always the pressure of Jeff and Brian not far behind.

It helps too that it’s his home track.

Looks like a great day of racing. Congrats to the winners and all competitors -- particularly Mr Guard and his yellow cars.

In all fairness, besides myself, Fast Eddie’s Raceway is also the “home track” for Jeff Bonanno, Brian Ambrose, and, of course, Ed Hoffman.

 

In the last six GRRR events at Fast Eddie’s, 15 of the 16 races were won by Brian, Jeff, or myself.

 

Since the 1/29/17 GRRR event at Fast Eddie’s, all 13 of 13 races were won by Brian, Jeff, or myself. Since that time, 28 of the last 39 podium positions were held by Brian, Jeff, Ed, or myself. For the two events this year, 16 of the 18 podium positions were held by Brian, Jeff, Ed, or myself.

 

Admittedly, not being a fan of my overall driving abilities, this June event at Ed’s for me was a prime example of the adage, “It’s better to be lucky than good.”

 

There are also a lot of other FL racers who are really good on the Hillclimb and Oval at Fast Eddies’s, too many to name. The inaugural Southern Retro Rumble coming up in eight days on September 14 and 15 should live up to its name! Y’all come on down!

 

And it’s always fun no matter…
