Old men fight off young stud in South Daytona.

 

Race #8 was held at Greg Walkers New South Daytona Race Place Man Cave/Raceway. The venue was to be Can-Am on the flat road course and Stockcars on the oval.  Due to a low turn out and several racers feeling they would have an avantage running stock cars on the road course, a vote was taken to do so. Little did they know the Evil side had things cover reqardless of either track.This also kept Greg from having to convert the track back to road configuration for Mondays racers.

 

The track even though is 4 lane, its is pretty easy to drive, fast smooth and fun. Hopefully those that decided to skip it again had good reasons other then it too flat, and i cant drive it. Damn, even i can get around respectively. We need to support all the raceways, there are not that many.

 

Bisquit made an appearace in practice Sat,  was his usual rocket ship fast but was a now show come sunday morning. Thats what happens when you have a wife with a new kid.

Pretty much everyone lead at one time or another with Terry taking the win at the end.

Grant who started down on the low lanes, took a early lead until he got on the higher lanes. I managed to get by and cruised to a win after a spirited battle with some rubbing with my nemesis Doc who wound up less than a 1/2 a lap behig Grant for third.

Hate to loose Doc from the south.  Great racer and an even greater person! 

 

I'm sure we will cross paths again in Ohio soon!

My car was that heavy, not a mistake. With no lead weight, the car weighs in at 111 grams.

 

Yes, I am going to miss all of my buddies, both in the FSCS flexi series and GRRR. Its been awesome racing with a great chassis builder like TonyP. He taught me a lot about building Can-Am chassis. With the house closing on the 3rd or 4th week of September, I will not be able to finish out either series in Florida. Since the slot racing series in Ohio starts in September, I got to make the jump soon. I have several OCC cars ready and since ORS runs to the IRRA rule set, I am good to go with retro.

Sorry i really wanted to race but i ended up having some bad luck saturday and since i hadnt opened my box in months or prepared properly i wasnt in a position to participate. I somehow got the ok from the boss at home to go have fun but it wasnt meant to be. Still bummed out about it but im gonna do my best to be at the southern showdown even if im a little bit of a roadblock out there knocking the rust off. Congrats to everyone and thanks for supporting Gregs track hopefully ill see everyone next month. Doc good luck with your move and racing in Ohio im sure ill see you at a race eventually, kinda like Gary moving back up north but get to race with him at the brawl which i really hope i can make again this year even if its just for canam.
