Young Punks Attack 4 Old and Crippled Retired Men In South Daytona!

AEEE31B7-E4B8-47BB-B62E-8A459CC2A149.jpeg

The first race at Greg Walker's new raceway, aka man cave, was low on entries for various reasons but high on fun and good racing. The new 4 lane track proved to be very raceable with the bite coming in over the practice days as the surface got broken in. Greg also supplied our motley crew with hotdogs and chili for lunch.

First order of the day was CanAm qualifying.

Mike was TQ

The CanAm main was all Biscuit as he lead all the way setting fastest lap on every heat. Danny Zona was second and I got my meds right and was first of the old guys to take his beating.D9D66AC9-12E2-4C1A-B0DB-9D8EF77F1740.jpeg

After the free lunch break it was F1. Biscuit had to leave to spend quality time with his family so that left us only 5.

Top qualifier for our second class is determined by fastest lap and this was taken by DZ himself.

By the time we get back to Greg’s, he should have the oval conversion set up for a quick change during lunch break so we can run Stockcars on the oval.

On the old track every other lane could be oval or road course. When I’d go up to practice the top 4 lanes were oval and the bottom road and that made for some interesting encounters at the intersections where the infield rejoined the banking..

After I posted, I realized my idea would create a lot of wrecks.

As Jerry Kulich would say "Good for business". Lol

The guy with the train style, working switches, is local, with some super-great connections, that on a long shot, might lead to a very interesting slot racing innovation. (Non-SCM)

Mike on this track your heavy metal guide really seemed to make a difference I could feel and see on the timer.

Lol Tony. DZ just had a bday he isnt a young punk anymore but ill still take credit for being a young punk haha. Good run in can-am and thanks to you guys for coming to race. We are used to low turnouts at our track and seeing its me and dzs home track i guess its kind of expected lol. Saturday race hurt a little also but still a good time. The track races really well and now those who came to race have a head start at the next race on those who couldnt make it for whatever reason. Its gonna make me a better driver im excited about the track and cant wait for the next race!!

Biscuit, us 60 & 70 yr. old people think that the 30 & 40 yr. old ones are still "young punks". :laugh2:  :laugh2: I never realized Danny was as old as he is.

 

P.S Tony might be old, but I'm older.
