To clarify, Haven's GT1 and GTP classes use the Ohio Challenge Cup rulebook, while Haven's 4.5" stocker class is a Flexi stock car class using the Ohio Challenge Cup GTP rulebook for clearance and width, no minimum front wheel diameter BUT they must be a foam front and must touch tech block at time of tech, with PS4002FK motors, open gearing, and the body rules being "No Dirt Late Models. Body must have front fenders fully covering tops of tires."

The Fall Points Season opened Wednesday night at Haven with 9 racers (2 Pro, 6 Advanced, 1 Division One) taking on the Hillclimb in GT1 action.

In Advanced, Dan Halfhill started out the season with a strong win over Gary Sutorius, with Gary Vinyard, Jeffrey Henes, Ken Kanyok, and Haley Halfhill all very close behind.

In Pro, Jeff Henes scored a tight victory over Brian Lear.

Alex Lear, one of our top Juniors, elected to race and was scored for Division One points to contend for the season crown.

The Sunday points season starts this weekend with Juniors, GT1, and Stockers on tap for the start of racing. See you at the races!

Try a Phoenix motor in your GTP cars set up,  you might have some fun with it. Some of the shorter tracks might have a hard time with the handling though. Fun motors.

Another fine Wednesday night of GT1 racing rolled into Haven with 9 racers (7 Advanced, 2 Division One) taking on the Hillclimb.

Advanced was a VERY close race with Dan Halfhill ultimately taking the win. Gary Sutorius grabbed second by handful of panels over Larry Kowicki, with Gary Vinyard only two laps behind them in fourth. Ken Kanyok held a leading pace for several heats until he had to settle for fifth, with Jeffrey Henes and Haley Halfhill rounding out the field.

Division One was a family affair as Waya Dute grabbed the win over his father Ray.

Our Sunday Program continues with GT1 and GTP this week while the points season rolls on. See you at the races.

The OCC's Technical Director has a few Phoenix's to evaluate and we'll come to a decision on the motor for the 2019-2020 Ohio Challenge Cup season. Haven, being an OCC track, follows the sanction's rulebook. :)

15 GT1 Racers (6 Division One, 7 Advanced, 2 Pros) made it out to Haven for this Wednesday's points night and it was a tough night of racing top to bottom.

In Division One, Donnie Macan grabbed the win by a comfortable five laps over Waya Dute, 166 to 161. Ray Dute turned in a solid 160 laps for third place over John Phelan at 158, with newcomer Charlie Gerth running 148 and Alex Lear at 138.

Advanced had Larry Kowicki turning in a strong 180 laps to take the win over Dan Halfhill at 176. Jeffrey Henes came back for a third at 171 over Gary Sutorius at 170. Haley Halfhill beat out Ken Kanyok for fifth, 162 to 161, and Gary Vinyard suffered motor problems to end up seventh with only 22 laps.

Pro was all Jeff Henes as a badly bent car kept Brian Lear out of the fight, the race ending 188 to 165.

This Sunday we return to racing with GT1 and 4.5" Stockers. See you all at the races!
