Race Reports!

Thought I would start a post to list race reports,entries,and results since there are so many up coming races in the next few weeks.

The first MORE race of the year unfortunately was a bust because of all the race date conflicts. If you can believe it only 9 total cars started the race with only 2 - 9 cars. B.J. Proctor #965 and Mike Norris #989. The race was to be 12 laps aropund a 22 mile course but Norris broke on lap 3 {Trans} and Proctor broke on lap 8 {Trans}. Bad start for MORE in a promising year considering they have the highest payback of any race Org. running today.and they got got so much positive feed back from the Nov. MORE/SNORE race. Not sure why MORE can not get a better turn out but would like to here some feedback as to what you guys feel the problem may be other than the date conflicts this time with Parker and Laughlin.

Why the low turn-out for 9's at Parker? I would have guessed 25-35 cars based on Snores & Whiplash's usual entries along with the odd enteries.

In Nov. at the Battle of Barstow MORE/SNORE race there were only about 10 cars pre-entered and 23 showed up! so I think Kenny is right. Also there must be a few cars running at laughlin this weekend? I just have no info as of yet who they might be. will try to get that info for you. R.S.

Only two 9 cars entered at laughlin {Drawing}

1-901-Art Velasco
2-949-Tony Modica

I guess with a $925 entry fee and Parker on the same day there will probably not be many more show up for this one!

- users no longer part of the rdc family -
we'll be in parker, it's my backyard 5 time winner at this one over the years, plus it's back too the
longer course which we like better. started preping car awhile back ended up changing everything
front to back except motor it should make it another race or two. i always like to start last at this
race so i'll be entering as late as possible to start back as far as possible since i didn't pre-enter to
request a rear start. (wasn't sure car would be ready in time, had to get new fuel cell, for my car
it has to be built by fuel safe $1,100.00 bucks damn that hurt!).

Tough break guys! The racing GODS say we all go over at least once. you just got yours out of the way early in the year.
Great to here you are doing OK, I cringe at the thought of someone getting hurt badly! this is supposed to be fun but this stuff keeps your priorities straight and mind set on saftey.
Hope you can find that new borrowed ride for AVI I plan on going to help pit. Rob S.
