Early in the race Grant retired with motor trouble and Ray led the field running quick and avoiding wrecks. Doc, Terry, and Danny were all close behind. Later in the race as Danny worked his way through the lower lanes he made up the deficit and would win by a narrow margin over Ray. Doc completed the podium in third sharing fast lap of the race with Danny.

For the next race we moved over to the 145' hillclimb to run Can-Am

14 entries.

Qualifying was 60 sec's on the orange lane. Danny Zona was TQ with a 4.225, not far off the record. The top 6 would seed the A-main. Top two from the B advancing to the A.

The B main was a tight race with nearly every entrant leading at one point or another. As the laps wore on Matt steadily advanced his lead and would eventually take the top spot. Tony was close behind and determined as ever to take the the second move up spot. Not to be outdone Doc increased his pace at the last minute and just squeaked by for second place.

B main podium - Doc, Matt, Tony

 

In the A main it was nice to see new faces with Tem and recently crowned GRRR "rookie of the year" Donny joining the big dogs. Matt took his move up spot and drove well to turn it into a fourth place finish. Jeff and Terry had a great fight and would finish as they qualified in second and third place.Top qualifier Danny was tough as always to beat and while everyone tried their best they could not stop him from taking the win.

The final race of the day was Formula one on the hillclimb. No qualifying. Racers were split into two races based on Can-Am finishing position and results were combined.

In race #1 we saw Tony turn one lap and then his motor blew retiring him from the race. Jay was the fast guy leading the charge and would finish with 300 laps followed by Ray and Ed.

Race #2 ended early for Donny when a tire issue led to damage that would retire him from the race. As the race continued once again we saw Danny head to the front with Jeff and Terry in 2nd and 3rd. With the final tone we saw Danny finish with 316 laps, Jeff with 312, and Terry with 308.

Well that is it for the first round of 2019. I would like to thank Steve Bowman for race directing the day. Thanks once again to Bill Pinch for everything he has done for us Florida slotcar racers over the years and we wish him and his wife the best in their retirement. 

 

Some exciting news has developed over the past few weeks in that Bill has found a new owner to take over the raceway and continue operations in the same location for the foreseeable future. 

 

Anyways for more and bigger pictures of the cars and event please visit the following link. https://photos.app.g...q4eFHcd2ntoAjy6

 

Our next race is P1 in Winter Garden on Sunday February 24th. We will run Can-Am, Stockcars, and Formula One in that order. Doors open at 8. See you all there!
