What time will the racing begin, Bill?

 

Entry fee?


Gregory Wells

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

We will be holding our normal 1st weekend of the month wing car race on August 7th.

 

We hope all the locals can be there for a final tune up before the NASRA Nats

 

 

 

Greg, can you change the header on this thread to say something like

Piranha Speedway, Wing Cars, News, race announcements and results

Or something like that. And then pin it for us, Thanks  Bill

Last warmup before the NASRA race

 

First up was the OMB race

TQ was Jason Klauk with a 2.198. Jason is just returning to racing after several decades in retirement. He bought a Cahoza setup off the wall, stuck it in his car and set fast time with a 2.198

8 racers so we split it up 4 and 4.

Jason, Joe Gallagher and Linn Hammond swapped the lead early with first Jason and then Linn falling behind Bill Taylor

In the final 2 heats Bill made up 6 laps on Joe

Joe Gallagher 628.66

Bill Taylor 627.59

Linn Hammond 613.65

Jason Klauk 609.31

all out of the "A" Race

 

Next up was Hillbilly

only 4 racers

Andy Stapars 640

Roy Lievanos 630

Warren Mells 608

Joe Gallagher 562 and TQ 2.158

 

Final race of the day was 27L with 4 entries

Richard Curnutte 967 and TQ 1.848

Joe Gallagher 959

Carl Anderson 949

Steve Hylton 731

9/4

 

We had our monthly wing car race yesterday, but with the upcoming USRA nats and the holiday weekend, the entries were down

 

We start with OMB as always.

 

Andy Stapars was the fast qualifier with a 2.121

 

The race was not real exciting with Andy taking the win with 645 laps

Andy 645

Sam Rackham 631

Joe Gallagher 622

 

In the HillBilly class we think that Joe Gallagher TQed

Joe 644

Rod Hilzengeger 630.

Andy Stapars 622

 

There was no cobalt racing

I wanted to say that there was a 2OMO before USRA Nats race with three racers Forrest, Joe and myself. The race was won by Forrest and I was in second with Joe in third. Joe hit my slot car and was destroyed.

Sorry, no race on Nov 6!

 

We did get five guys to show up, so we did a test and tune session.

 

There were a couple of guys who wanted to come and race with us but had prior family and business commitments.

 

We have at least one new/returning racer saying he is in and we have a father/daughter team likely to join us as well. And we sold a few cars to beginning racers a few months ago, hopefully we will get them as well.

 

The next event is scheduled for December 3.

 

Hope you can make it.

We raced winged cars on 2/5.

 

First up was OMB.

 

We had 10 racers, so after qualifying we split them up to run 2, 5 man races.

Hector Rodriguez came in from overseas, Spain I think, and TQed with a 2.140.

 

JB Barnett won the "B" race with 620 laps, good for 3rd overall

 

Hector won the race overall with 631 laps

Richard Curnutte 624 laps

 

 

Next up was HBB with 8 racers.

Art Richardson was TQ with 2.097

Once again we split the field in half.

Roy Lievanos won the "B" race with 630 laps, but the top 4 overall came out of the "A" race

Art Richardson 656 laps

Andy Stapars 652 laps

Hector Rodriguez 645 laps

 

 

Final race of the day was 27L

I did not get the race sheets but Andy Stapars TQed and won the race

Art richardson was 2nd and Jeremy Marquette was 3rd

 

Stay tuned to this page for a possible change to the order in which we run the races
