Retro Stock Cars on the Royal – 9/8/20


Stock Cars took to the American Royal this past week at MVH. Seven racers ran in the 4/4 format with 2 marshals and one person at the computer.


Stock Cars in Tech:



John Weaver jumped out to an early lead while Ray Lee, Ralph Griffin and Nate Bemis were battling for the two remaining spots on the podium. At the change to the inside lanes Weaver had logged 165 laps which was good enough for a five-lap lead on Ray while Nate and Ralph were in a tight race for third with 151 laps each. Six laps back in fifth place Rob Hayes was eight laps up on Richard Payne while Chris Cassidy closed out the field.


Rob had the best second half in the race, but it wasn’t enough to move him up in the standings. On the other hand, Ralph also added to his first half total, pushing him ahead of Nate to take the bottom step on the podium. Weaver logged seven fewer laps in the second half than in the first allowing Ray to close the gap to just four laps when time ran out, but John was still able to take the win.


Weaver posted the fastest lap of the night with a 4.109. Ray and Ralph posted identical 4.226 best-lap times.
