Sunday Sunday Sunday 20200712 @ Downriver Speedway in Lincoln Park Michigan Sportsman Race. Nine intrepid dedicated motivated racers entered the fray utililizing the social distance sequence of lane selection where we leave out green and yellow lanes in a straight six lane rotation. Red continued his winning streak as he brought home a three lap win over the Barbarian in second with JB's cop car special in third. A special thanks to Mike Nance who brought along three racers with him for the day.

Sunday Sunday Sunday 20200719 @ Downriver Speedway in Lincoln Park Michigan Sportsman Race. Nine competitors entered the fray utilizing the social distance sequence of lane selection where we leave out green and yellow lanes in a straight six lane rotation. The theme for this week’s race was stock car bodies and thanks to Nance racing a better looking field of stock car bodies has never been seen! Red continued his winning streak as he brought home a several lap win over JB's cop car special with the Barbarian in third. Bre had a great run closing in on the Barbarian who had trouble in the last heat.

Sunday Sunday Sunday 20200726 @ Downriver Speedway in Lincoln Park Michigan Sportsman Race. Eight motivated racers braved 91 degree temperatures and high humidity to enter the fray utilizing the social distance sequence of every other lane. TransAm Camaro was the theme body for the day. Mike Krick lead the way with his LMP car and Cam won the featured body race with the Barbarian way behind. The race director screwed up on the latest addition of Trackmate software and accidently closed the program half way through the event. Fortunately, he remembered everybody’s average and we ran the rest of the races from where we left off and combined averages for the result. JB had the fast car but gear trouble sidlined him for a stint. A special thanks to Mike Nance who lent me a Camaro body. It did not hurt as much as I thought it would.

 

 

The updated software keeps this results screen resident behind the race progress screen during lane changes. You can bring it up during the lane change. Don’t close this screen out as it brought up a 301 error (stack over flow – do computers still do that?????) and the program crashed. Click on the progress screen or just let the race resume. I like the new version. It seems less glitchy for the most part and the screens are sharper.

Friday Friday Friday 20200731 @ Downriver Speedway in Lincoln Park Michigan for the NASCAR oval track series race. Six die hard motivated racers entered the crash and bash on the Dadd’s oval. We ran the social distance sequence of every other lane straight rotation. Tom C was TQ followed by his Brother Jack and then Mike Krick. Red lead the way as he started on green lane and moved down the track. Starting the last two segments Red had the highest average but had to finish on red and white while the TQ favorite got to finish on yellow and purple where he was expected to make up the 4 lap difference. Red’s car was loose but he was knocking the bank down and held Tom off for his first oval track win after several frustrating attempts. Mike Krick’s car faded in the last heat allowing the Barbarian to steal a third place podium finish. JB’s new motor took a while to break in but he was fast at the end. Jack broke a guide flag and missed a heat otherwise he would have been right there. A minute at the side of the track was not enough time for him to get back in the race. A good time was had by all and a special thanks to Bob Faster for running the race for us.

Sunday Sunday Sunday 20200802 @ Downriver Speedway in Lincoln Park Michigan Sportsman Race. Seven racers entered the fray utilizing the social distance sequence of lane selection of every other lane in a straight eight lane rotation. Red continued his winning streak as he brought home a several lap win over the Barbarian while returning racer Dave had a good showing for a podium finish. Dave’s friend Colleen is a very good racer and needs to get back on course. JB was tied up with customers and Colleen covered his first two segments on red and white. We started at 2:10 PM and we finished at 3:27 PM for a good day of racing by all.
