Cars line up for today's SoCal D3 LeMans Coupe race on the BPR Kingleman track. Today's turn out although smaller than usual was a lot of fun as always. The tight Kingleman track is always a challenge to drive.

Cars line up for start of the SoCal D3 sidewinder 4.5" NASCAR race. Again a smaller field than normal, but interest is growing in this fun race category. These sidewinder 4.5" lexan NASCARs handled very well and are definitely a lot of fun to race especially on the Kingleman.
