It's the 5th Sunday in May, time for another D3 Hardbody race day at Buena Park Raceway.
A lite turnout of "vaccinated" racers today. Back to our regular racing with plenty of side by side fun racing. 8 drivers per heat, face masks optional. 
The GTP race had 8 entries. Jim Lane finished first with Phil Nyland second and Tim Herrera 3rd. The Racer Handicap podium had Tim 1st, Doug Jacks 2nd, Jim 3rd.
The second race was a Mixed race. 10 racers battled during this fun race. Luke Grotano had his first ever D3 hardbody race driving a loaner GTR car from Tim Herrera.
Hector "Gonzo" Gonzalez won the race and tied the existing total lap record for Can Am with 259 laps.
Keith Tanaka was 2nd and Phil Nyland 3rd. The "Racer Handicap" podium had Michael Kale 1st, Hector 2nd and Keith 3rd. Michael drove a Jim Lane loaner car to victory. 
 
Thanks to Jim Watterson (and Eddie) for their support of D3 Hardbody Racing at BPR.
Thanks to our race director, Victor Dubrowsky.
