Sunday's D3 Hardbody races at Buena Park Raceway saw two total lap records set.
The first race of the day was for GTPs. A very fast group of 8 entries. A very close race with the top 5 racers battling thruout the race.
Phil Nyland finished first followed by Tim Herrera who was just ahead of Eddie Shorer in 3rd. The Racer Handicap podium had Tim in 1st, Phil 2nd and Keith Tanaka 3rd.
The Mixed race was a barn burner as two new total lap records were set for two racing classes. Jim Lane driving his '53 Corvette, won the Lap Differential race setting a new total lap record for the 3 C's class with 258 laps (breaking his old record of 255 laps).
Hector "Gonzo" Gonzalez driving his new McLaren M8B, finished 2nd while also setting a new total lap record for the Can Am class with 261 laps bettering the old record of 259 set by Gonzo and Phil Nyland. Eddie Shorer finished 3rd. 
The Racer Handicap podium had Jim in 1st, Hector 2nd and Michael Kale 3rd.
Thanks to Jim Watterson (and Eddie) for supporting D3 Hardbody Racing at Buena Park Raceway.
Thanks to our race directors: Hector Gonzalez and Tim Herrera.
