Retro Stock Cars on the Royal – 7/24/18


About every six months the MVH Tuesday night retro racing series runs the 95’ American Royal with stock cars…and this was the week! Seven racers went to tech with the race run in the 4/4 format with three marshals on the corners.


Stock Cars on the Tech Table: 



Dom Luongo made a rare Tuesday night appearance and showed the rest of us how it is done. Besides setting the fastest lap of the evening (4.273 seconds) he had opened up a five-lap lead by the mid-point of the race logging 157 laps. Dave Panich was pedaling as fast as he could but was unable to keep up, hanging on to second place but trailing by five laps. Dan Savage was four laps down to Dave while holding a one lap lead on Ernie “The Ernstigator” LaChance in the battle for the final podium place. Another five laps back Richard Payne had put up 142 laps and was sitting comfortably in 5th with a three-lap lead on Rich Girvin.  Dick Griffin finished out the field.


Some racers came alive after the move to the inside lanes while others suffered a drop-off in pace but Dom kept chugging along. Matching his first half lap total, he took the win with 314 total laps. Dave struggled on purple resulting in his second half lap total dropping by two and leaving him 12 laps off Dom’s winning pace at the checkered flag but securely in 2nd. The battle for 3rd place went down to the wire with “The Ernstigator” coming on strong to get past Dan, clinching his spot on the podium by 10 track sections. Rich G had the best second half of all the racers, posting 4 laps more than his first half effort in his quest to get around Richard P to claim 5th place but came up less than a lap (18 track sections) short.
