Doug Matthes 2nd place car.
This is the same chassis which Doug won the D3 LeMans race on the Kingleman track last Saturday.
Doug used the same TSR D3 motor for today's Coupe race.
Paul Sterrett's winning Coupe car.
Paul's anglewinder chassis was powered by a TSR D3 motor.
This is the same Sterrett chassis Paul raced last month in the D3 "Coupe" race.

Paul Sterrett drove his "D3 Coupe" car to 2nd place in the Retro Pro race. Paul used his "coupe" chassis and TSR D3 motor to finish 2nd in the Retro Pro race. Paul showed everyone that a good handling car and top notch driving is the key to running fast on the BPR flat track.
Doug's winning car is the same Retro Pro chassis (Allen Low chassis) which he has raced to win several Retro Pro races. Doug added quite a bit of lead to improve handling on the BPR flat track.
Tim Neja's 3rd place car. Tim built this chassis using the Warmack inline kit as the basis for the anglewinder chassis.
Some modifications to the Warmack inline kit makes for a very fast anglewinder chassis.
Tim used a Big Dog motor tuned by Joe Chevy.
