D3 Hardbody races, Sunday March 21, 2021. This is the first time since March of last year (2020) that we had 8 drivers in each heat (instead of just 4 per heat). A full track provided a lot of fun with racers dueling each other side by side from time to time. It was great to run a regular race (while wearing face masks) and finish each race in half the time (compared to racing with just 4 racers per heat0.
 
Today's first race was a GTP race with 10 entries. Phil Nyland edged out Jim Lane for first place with Hector Gonzalez 3rd just ahead of Keith Tanaka in 4th. 
The "Racer Handicap" podium had Tim Herrera in first, Phil 2nd and Jim 3rd.
The Mixed race was next. 11 entries, Eddie Shorer was 1st, Hector Gonzalez 2nd and Phil Nyland 3rd. Eddie, Gonzo and Phil all drove pan chassis cars built by Gonzo. 
The "Racer Handicap" podium had Tim Wood in first, Eddie Shorer 2nd and Hector Gonzalez 3rd.
 
Thanks to Jim Watterson (and Eddie) for their support of D3 Hardbody Racing at Buena Park Raceway.
Thanks to our race director, Victor Dubrowsky.
