February's D3 Hardbody races at Buena Park Raceway had a lite turnout but gradually more racers are returning to racing as Covid recovery improves gradually each month.
11 racers competed today in the Mixed Race. We continue to use "COVID" race rules: must wear face mask, only 4 drivers per heat, alternating lanes. 
Jim Lane drove his VW Bug (Under 2 Liter Trans Am) to victory with Phil Nyland 2nd (Short Track Mustang) and Keith Tanaka 3rd (Trans Am Camaro). The Racer Handicap podium had Jim 1st, Keith 2nd and Phil 3rd.
The second race had 4 entries for the GTP race. 
Hector "Gonzo" Gonzalez drove his very fast Mazda 787 to victory with Tim Herrera 2nd (Porsche 962) and Doug Jacks 3rd (Porsche 917).
The "Racer Handicap" podium had Doug 1st, Tim 2nd and Gonzo 3rd.
Thanks to Jim Watterson (and Eddie) for their support of D3 Hardbody Racing at Buena Park Raceway.
Thanks to our race directors, Jim Lane, Keith Tanaka and Jim Watterson.
Here's the race/photo report: https://socald3.smug...21-21/i-NrK6J55
The next D3 Hardbody races at BPR on Sunday, March 21, 2021. 
NOTE: Our next races will have a race schedule change with the first race being a GTP race. The second race will be a Mixed race. Also, we might try racing with all lanes being used in each heat (8 racers per heat). 
This will speed up the race day and we can have two races without making the race day longer.
