Thanks to Doug Matthes for providing these race photos. Racers clean the track prior to the day's races. R-L, Mike Aguirre, Adam Kirchhofer and Bob Crane wipe down the track while Paul Sterrett applies cleaner to the track.
Before the practice sessions begin, Mike Steube tries out a new car.
Hmmm, I wonder what kind of car it is?
Ahhh, it's a JD GP (Jail Door F1). We will have our first D3 JD F1 race coming soon.
Today's Coupe field after tech inspection.
Craig Correia conducted the Coupe tech inspection. Thanks Craig! That's Allen Low with cash in hand, a bribe? (just kidding Allen).
Typical pit talk. L-R, Bob Crane, Barney Poynor, PdL.
Today's first race is the D3 Coupes.

Bryan Warmack's 2nd place Coupe car. Although this is an "anglewinder" race, inlines are allowed as well. Obviously, Bryan did a heck of a driving job in placing 2nd against anglewinders!
Doug Matthes' winning Coupe car.
Mill Conroy's 3rd place car. This car was built by Bryan Warmack.
Notice the secret to this car's great handling?
A secret new technique? Magical body mounting pin gives highly sensitive torsion to the left side pan.
Well, if you believe the last photos statement about the pin, you probably beiieve anything!

Mike Boemker's 2nd place car (built by Dennis "Foamy" Hill)
Hefty lead weights on the side pans, must be looking to catch a big fish!
Another great chassis built by Foamy
Hey, that looks like the "parking lot" motor which PdL exchanged with Foamy for some "Ding Dongs"!!!!
That parking lot motor is very fast!
Mike Steube's Retro Pro winning car.
Mike Steube's latest chassis design is a departure from his more "common" chassis designs. Mike does try different ideas as much as anyone.
Mike used this motor provided by Barney "Team Cort" Poynor and Bob "Stork" Crane.
Paul Sterrett's 3rd place Retro Pro car.
