Retro Stock Cars on the Figure 8 – 9/24/19

 

Seven racers presented their retro Stock Cars to tech inspection this week with racing on the Figure 8. The race was run in the 4/4 format with two marshals and one person to run the computer.

In the early running the closest race of the night was between Ray Lee and Peter Lentros. By the move to the inside lanes, Ray had a slim one-lap lead on Peter but was 9 laps off race-leader Dave Panich’s 198 lap pace. Richard Payne was running 4th with Ernie Lachance and Rich Girvin giving chase. Wayne Secore closed out the field.

 

Second half action saw Peter’s car slow due to a lack of braid contact causing him to fall off the pace. Ray gave it a tweak and Pete came roaring back but it was a bit too late to make up his lost laps. Dave cruised to a 13-lap win over Ray who ended up another 8 laps up on Peter while Richard P was within striking distance but fell 2 laps shy of the podium. Ernie and Richard P were evenly matched and were often rubbing doors but Ernie’s car’s handling didn’t measure up as he settled for 5th, 10 laps off Richard’s pace.

 

Dave’s 3.507 on yellow was the fastest lap of the evening while Ray and Peter were tied for 2nd fastest, Richard P and Ernie were tied for 3rd fastest and Rich G and Wayne were tied for 4th fastest. All the ties were on different lanes from each other. Pretty weird!
