Race #1 Results:

 

Thanks to all the racers who joined the racing fun for the first race of the IN HOPRA 2021-2022 Series. Big Moe Mofield and rapid Ryan Peoples made the trek over from OH and comeback kid Rob Merchant returned for his first race in a long, long time. 
First up with Super Stock on the wicked Cobra and Dwayne Norris looked to have everyone covered with a blistering pace taking TQ in the heats and leading the way in the A main... that is until the front end came unstopped in the last segment. Tmac ended up taking the win, followed by Dave, Gary and Big Moe.

Next up was Spec Racer on the fast and furious Riverside bullring. After a snafu with the timing system, which caused a do-over of the heat races, Big Moe had to head back to OH. Dave ended up snatching TQ by sections over Ryan and Tmac. In the mains, rapid Ryan scorched the field to take the win, followed by Rob (with a stellar run in the B main)Dwayne and Dave.

Race #2 results...

 

Big thanks to a smaller, but mighty group of racers that came out to our 2nd race of the season on a crisp Fall Saturday at Tmac's spectacular racing complex. This was the debut of the HOPRA CMPM class for the IN HOPRA Series and the 1-hour practice session on the always tricky Cobra had many racers thrashing to find the right setup as well as getting acclimated to the speed of these beasts. This was followed by a 1-hour practice session for Super Stock on the rockin' Riverside bullring road course. 
 
As usual, we started the racing off with Super Stock. Dwayne put in a dominating run in the heat races to once again take TQ, but could he maintain that pace in the main? The answer was a resounding 'YES' as he cruised to a trouble-free overall win.

After a hearty lunch break that featured delicious lasagna and garlic bread courtesy of Mrs. Tmac, all the racers got back down to business with CMPM on the Cobra. While the majority of the racers in attendance had participated in the CMPM Speedfest back in August, it still was a big adjustment in timing to keep these beasts in the slot. Several racers suffered from spun pinions due to heat issues, while others had pretty trouble free runs. Yours truly got lucky and took TQ as well as the win. Here's the full rundown:

Speaking of the August CMPM Speedfest, Harden Creek Slotcars had donated a t-shirt and hat as part of their sponsorship of that event. However, with all the excitement, we forgot to give the prizes away. So, we had a drawing at this race. The lucky winners were Chuck (hat) and me (t-shirt). Big thanks to Terry @ Harden Creek Slotcars!!!
