I just couldn't make it to the Fall Brawl this year, although I had intended to be there. I wanted to be there!
 
But with the help of Clyde Romero and a few other friends on site, I'm going to try to get the results posted here anyway.
 
First a couple pics of from today.
 
fb1.jpg
 
This is rare pic on two levels: 'Jersey" John Molnar is actually awake in a raceway and he's saluting the cameraman with twice as many fingers as he usually employs. That's Joe 'Noose" Neumeister in the foreground, and I believe Eddie 'Edsel' Sohl on his right.
 
fb2.jpg
 
Over the boxes and above the bank, racers are making some laps on SpeedZone's fast 220' Ogilvie Engleman.
 
fb3.jpg
 
It's almost impossible to get enough practice time on the evil 'Jersey Devil' flat track.
 
Today's classes were GT Coupe on the Devil and Can-Am Plus and RetroPro on the Gerding G9 King.
 
GT Coupe - qualifying:
 
1) Luis 'Gugu' Bernardino - 5.519 secs
2) Chris Radisich - 5.522
3) Howie Ursaner - 5.544
4) Tom Adams - 5.640
5)  Tom Hansen - 5.799
6) Doug Murphy - 5.801
7) Rick Dodge - 5.854
8) Gary 'Hip' Culy - 5.856
9) Dennis Samson - 5.910
10) Bill Sutton - 5.945
 
Can-Am Plus concours:

 ca+.conc.jpg

[edit] Digging through the LapMaster tables on the SpeedZone NJ website, I realized that the GTC results were split into two tables and through the miracle of computer-assisted photo manipulation, I have combined them into a single results table. The color-coding and bolding for best laps in each heat is wrong, but it's too much work to fix that problem.
 
GT Coupe results:

John Gorski have just sent me his TQ/second Place Can-Am Plus. It was built by Kamo last year and modified by John for this year's Brawl.
 
John told me Dale won the race with the similar chassis built by Kamo recently.
 
Kamo and I are very happy.

On today's slate is Stock Car and GTC FK and Pro.
 
The calm before the trashing, right after the raceway opened this morning.

fb5.jpg
 
fb6.jpg
 
fb7.jpg
 
Preston Selfinger on the left looks pretty pleased with the way his Stock car is going. Noose is seemingly telling Edsel what he should do, as Brian 'XPro' Cochrane listens in.
 
fb8.jpg
 
Obviously the Calfornia crew: Duran 'Iceman' Trujillo and Jason Holmes, Alex Freund, Dake Yamashita, and master chassis builder Dennis Samson, in the gray cap.
 
fb9.jpg
 
Almost a full panel testing their Stock Cars. Left to right, Mike 'Biscuit' Bresett, Kyle "Jack" Hall, Luis 'Gugu' Bernardino, Howie Ursaner, Dom Luongo, TN's Will Brinkley, and Dennis Samson.

The 'Tech Nazi' has assumed his position and is probing some hapless racer's Stock Car.

 

And Jersey John is still awake, but it's early yet... (Does he know how risky it is to sleep in a raceway with Gugu in the house?)

I'm told that 35 Stock Cars have cleared tech. Here's a pic of the rack, with one car missing.

I am going to rant for a moment.

 

Thirty-one of the cars in that photo appear to be VFC Charger bodies. I know the idea is to go fast and how it looks matters not, but can't someone pull a body that looks decent and still works well? The Parmas look good (three in the photo) but obviously are not the choice for racing.

 

OK, I feel a little better now.

 

Looks like a great turnout and will make for some great racing I am sure.

 

Have fun, guys.

Just a teeny bit more than four laps covers first through sixth places. Can the racing at the Fall Brawl get any closer than this? I don't see how, but we'll just have to see.

Congrats, Danny.
 
I was surprised to see you weren't already on the list.
 
I know winning GTC-FK would put you on the list. But would have your podium in Stock Car also have done it?
 
I know I should know the above answer, but I don't. LOL.
