World Record MMW.jpg
 
Feb 9-10 is the date for the 24 Hours of Ohio presented by FNRS Championship endurance race for Flexi-type cars at Mark's Model World in Canton, OH. The event will be run on their King track.
 
MMW King.jpg
 
The goal is to break the previous 1/24 record set October 22-23rd, 2005 which is 488.5 miles set at the Chicago 24 Event.
 
500 miles should be within reach, will the winning team exceed 600?
 
The 8 teams registered for the event are:
 
MMW: Ralph Middaugh, Shaun Steede, Darrell Fuller, Mark Kitto, Don Wedig Jr, Scott Lemon, Dave Gardiner, Al Rutti
 
HO'ers: Ben Naeliz, Chris Rondella, Ron Vincek, Rusty Jackson, Roger Porcelli, Matt Handy
 
CHUBBY: Joe Salzman, Matt Bruce, Chris Radisich, Timmy Skurka, Jonathan Forsyth, Justin Colvin, Jimmy Williams
 
PLAN B: Bud Denning, Frank Ulbrik Jr, Will Custer, Ross Scharf, Cap Henry, Eric Shirey
 
SLOT SLAYERS: Tim Burton, Race Gardiner, Matt Easterday, Dustin LaRowe, Brian Lear, Mark Gardiner, Mike Fleming, Nick Kuhn
 
GRAY REAPERS: Jeff Strause, Toby Kindig, Jeremy Wyant, Rich Attee, Bill Sebenik, Dan VanHorn, Dave VanHorn, Frank Ulbrik Sr.
 
MIGO: Ralph Thorne, Ron Hershman, John Miller, Terry Watson, James Merriman, Joe Liguori, Dave Simerka
 
MID-AMERICA: Roger Schmitt, Jeff Goldberg, Curt Vincent, Rob Voska, Walker McAnulty, Mark Horn
 
Note that there may be last minute changes to the team lineups. As far as I know, entries are closed for the 2019 event.
 
John Miller's crew at Pro Slot will be providing 16 special Scorpion 4007 FK motors that will be used by all of the teams.

Additional questions should be directed to Mark's Model World, Canton, OH.
 
I have no further information of any sort at this time.

Wow, a real all-star field of drivers.

If they hand out five-lap penalties for swearing, I'm not sure the CR World Record, running Flexi 5s and Deathstars, will be broken. LOL.

I see my name in the lineup for the Chicago team. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, my day job cannot give the time off due to new project. So at least the job looks safe for a while. :-) I hope to there next year if Mark gives it a go one more time.
 
On another note, I have donated a Body Pinning Fixture as a prize for the event.
 
Good luck on breaking that record.

I don't know if this will work, or work for everyone, but the 24-Hour race is being shown now live on Facebook.

 

24-Hours of Ohio live stream

 

Please post to let me know if this works for you. Have no clue whether people who aren't registered at Facebook will be able to view this; it would be helpful for me to know.

 

Also, it looks like someone is hand-holding a phone to provide the video. If that's the case, this video stream is not likely to last the whole race... LOL!

And he's offline now, as I suspected would happen.

 

The usual battery life of a cellphone made that almost inevitable.

Plan B changed a motor; don't know the reason why.
 
None of them have let the smoke out yet.

Team Chubby has covered 102 miles in 4 hours, which is on a pace to cover over 600 miles in 24 hours, if all goes well.
