Race Report by Tom Spellcheck


10 racers present for Tuesday night Hardbody racing on the Jersey Devil, 6 in the A Main and 4 in the B Main. 

The B Main was a close contest between Mike Haskins and Rodger Airey, who were on the same lap for most of the race.  Towards the end, Mike pulled away by one lap, then two at the end, to take the win.  Rodger was 2nd.  John Magno ran the fastest laps of the race but crashed spectacularly a few times and broke a body mounting pin and had to withdraw.  Likewise, Frank Alivernini had three spectacular crashes, all on the first lap of the race, when the brakes on his controller went away.  Running a borrowed controller for the rest of the time, Frank finished 3rd. 

Where are the rest of the B main racers?  We need more B Main people to show up -- we have been sticking A Main guys in the B Main just to have enough people to make a race. 

The A Main was five white cars (four of which were Corvettes) and one blue Mustang.  It was Tom vs. Tom (Spellcheck & Varinecz) for the top two positions.  After being run into by everyone except Tom Varinecz, Spellcheck ended up in fourth position at the end of the first heat.  By the third heat, Spellcheck had moved into 1st place, with Tom Varinecz right behind until the last two heats.  At the end, Spellcheck took the win by two laps over Tom Varinecz, who again recorded a new personal best lap total.  Al Hernandez, Mike Marciano, and Ray Carlisi traded 3rd, 4th, and 5th positions all during the race.  They finished in that order, separated by a few laps.  Steve Russo had enough problems in two heats to withdraw in the middle of the second one.
