Post Holiday Crowd Rocks at Fantasy!
 
Another great crowd of racers for the Hardbody Class after the New Year took to the hill climb at Fantasy Raceways Thursday night. Great to see our visiting racers from out of town joining our regulars and returning racers for another night of fender bangin' excitement!
When the smoke cleared, taking the checked flag was Randy Scott. Coming in second was the team of "Fast Frank" Panera and Rodger Hoffman. Mike Giocondo rounded out the top three.


Thanks so much to Jack and Mike, Bill, Darryl and Rodger for helping while Jeff was out.

Happy New Year to all and thanks for your continued support!
 
The Hardbody class runs every Thursday at Fantasy. Grab your gear, head on over to Rochester and join the fun!

Is it Winter time? Yep, January 7.

You wouldn't know it from the hot Retroflex racing action at Fantasy Raceways! 

Twelve Drivers took to the hillclimb to duke it out in the two Mains.

 

In the B Main John Voellinger continued his ascent up the Leader Board taking the top spot on the podium this week. Rich Buchholz turned the fast lap of the group with a 4.89 on white but couldn't quite get to the checkered flag ahead of John finishing just one lap behind. Rich Joslin with his best lap total to date rounds out the top three.

Jim Harter was the best of the best on this night. His fast lap of 4.78 on orange helped him cruise to a comfortable three lap victory. Jeff Eve maintained a consistently fast pace to capture second place just two laps ahead of Darryl "Mr. X" Voleshen in the third spot.

Yes, and as a father, it is my sworn duty to kick his butt at slot racing. He has yet to de-throne the king.

Long live the King!

Any other father/son duos out of there?

My son raced with me during the 90's before spending a 20 yr. career in the Army. He sometimes out-qualified me, but in the races, I always came out ahead. Toda,y he lives in Arizona & neither of us have a local raceway, but i still have the cars. :)

Before we get to the racing action, a "get well soon" shout out to Fantasy Raceways proprietor and all around good guy Jeff Eve as he recovers from a recent surgery. He is missed and we all look forward to seeing him back at the track very soon! He may want to get back sooner than later as our hostess Bobbi Eve did a great job keeping the program rolling right along without his help.

 

Another Tuesday, another Retroflex brawl on the banked turns of the 145' Ogilvie euro hill climb. This week A and B Mains were on the track together in a full house battle that delivered plenty of fender rubbing action with the occasional multi-car pile up thrown in just to keep everyone on their toes. It was clear from the start that the A Main veterans had the upper hand. Podium regular Darryl "Mr. X" Voleshen and Matt "Bones" Lees weaved their way through the traffic and accident scenes like it was a just another commute home on the local interstate. The two pushed each other the whole night with "Bones" claiming the top step of the podium by .06 of a lap. Darryl's 4.89 fast lap of the night on the white lane just wasn't quite enough. Rich Buchholz finished a lap ahead of his father Dave to claim the third spot on this week's podium. Dave may have jinxed himself with some family style trash talking, see previous posts in this thread. Just sayin'.  :victory:

If it's Tuesday it's Retroflex Racing at Fantasy Raceways in Rochester NY.

 

Fantasy Raceways Retroflex Drivers were pleased to see Jeff Eve back at the track after recovering from a recent surgery. We are all hoping his recovery continues to go smoothly. A lot of us lean on Jeff for technical help with our cars so it was comforting to see him in his usual "Master Technician" chair. As a way of saying thanks we don't even hold it against him that he regularly thumps most of us when the racing starts!  :)

 

Ten racers braved the cold on this night to test their skills on the hill climb. Separating the field into A and B Mains helped keep the racing competitive for all involved.

 

Francisco Thorne and Mike Giocondo started the night off with some great driving in the B Main. After the eight stints the two were separated by only .07 of a lap with Francisco taking the win. His fast lap of the group on orange of 5.074 certainly helped. Rich Joslin managed to hold off hard charging Joe Arena for the third spot on the podium.

The previously mentioned Jeff Eve cranked out the fast lap of the night of 4.861 on orange but it wasn't enough to keep Darryl "Mr. X" Voleshen from the top of the podium. A between stint tire change helped Darryl's car settle in and he kept Jeff at bay to win by about 2 laps. Dave Buchholz overcame some mechanical issues to cruise to a solid 3rd place finish.
