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.


image

Before the practice sessions begin, Mike Steube tries out a new car.


image

Hmmm, I wonder what kind of car it is?


image

Ahhh, it's a JD GP (Jail Door F1). We will have our first D3 JD F1 race coming soon.

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.

Mill Conroy's 3rd place car. This car was built by Bryan Warmack.


image

Notice the secret to this car's great handling?


image



image



image

A secret new technique? Magical body mounting pin gives highly sensitive torsion to the left side pan.


image

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!


image

Another great chassis built by Foamy


image

Hey, that looks like the "parking lot" motor which PdL exchanged with Foamy for some "Ding Dongs"!!!!


image

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.
