More stock is in for the Sano, including painted versions of the fairly new, IRRA®approved, Red Fox bodies.
 
They are $21 each.
 
If any Sano attendees want me to put any of them aside, please PM, or preferably, post in this thread, as I'm real busy, working on the King.
 
I'm not making them available to the general public, until after the race.

Additional racers, from Michigan and Texas, have contacted me today, to save them a pit space.

 

This should be the biggest Sano in quite awhile.

 

Certainly the biggest ever, in my current Westmont location, which has had Sano's 8-12.

Chuck & Jim came in just in time , to help break in the lanes, on the freshly sprayed, Fiedler Flat track.
 
Chuck was able to take advantage on Chicagoland Raceway's awesome policy of free track time , the week of one's 90th, or over, birthday.
 
This is the 2nd time for Chuck, as he turned 91, last Friday.
 
The best one was when I mentioned to Howie, there would be a father & son, coming in, to run, like they do almost every week.
 
He replied "That's terrific. Maybe it will keep the kid off of video games". Lol

I got super-lucky with the spray on the Fiedler Flat.
 
Howie did a 5.10, after about 3 laps, and a 4.89 on this 20th, which matches our best race lap of last year.
 
I took a few laps with it, and went 4.86.
 
I went for a burrito, and when I came back, he had turned the fastest lap time I've ever remembered seeing, a 4.74.

Holy Toledo! Wicked fast laps. Have to work a lot at O'Hare but will be off Saturday to race with all the legends coming in and our local friends at this absolutely amazing event you host; Mike. Super excited for even a day at The Annual Sano.

I finished up widening the aprons in the Finger, and Lead-on, on red. They came out pretty nice.

Afterwards I cleaned and sprayed the track, mid-to-late afternoon. It came in pretty good, with Howie running a 4.32, .33 &.34.

I think I overheard Brian Ambrose mentioning running a 3.

I think he was mostly on yellow.

I saw Dan Ebert, with some pretty sporty cars, running low 4.4's.

We have the biggest turnout in quite awhile.

With 1000+ laps on Blue, I had reset the computer, with out looking at the times, but Willy quickly put down a 4.25.

I went to put on UStream last night, and they now require a paid subscription, so unless one of the racers does a live FB , there will not be any video.

It looks like about 30-32 racers in the 2 - GTC classes, and I've sold 113 out of the 120 engraved handouts.

GTC is looking like 19-20 entries, and we will be doing a move-up format like, F1 and Can Am.

I will be race directing and will try to post results, between heats.
