Delayed Start to New Year

Well, we finally get to race. After all the silliness put the death throes on the first four races of the season, we made it to Bremerton Raceway.

Saturday morning was kind of overcast and the forecast did not look good, so the track decided to only have one time run for all the classes.

Thirteen Super Comp racers braved the iffy weather and showed up. Darral Petitt, Dave Secondi, Dave Thorton, Diane Petitt, Emmett McKillop, Greg Linne, Greg Taylor, Brian Schmanke, Greg Pessemier, Mark Gillespie, Mark Loftis, Tony Arthur, and Jack Stutler were entered. We started time runs for the brackets, had a couple of oil downs, couple of rain showers, and finally got in a qualifying run. Three people were on the money, with .70 something.  Tony Arthur had the best, with a 5.700 to grab the #1 spot. Thanks to Snap-On tools for the great awards.

The race sponsor was Nelson Family Racing.

The ladder was set and then we waited.

Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not take kindly to our endeavors to race and decided to reward us with more rain.

The track started round one of the brackets, but after Sportsman and Pro ran, the rains came again. It was too late in the day to try to continue, so the race was called.

The money was split 13 ways, and everyone will receive first round loss points.

Moving on to Sunday. Today race was sponsored by C&C Olympic Heating.

Darral Petitt, Dave Secondi, Dave Thorton, Diane Petitt, Emmett McKillop, Greg Linne, Brian Schmanke, Greg Pessemier, Mark Gillespie, Mark Loftis, Tony Arthur, and Jack Stutler stayed to see if the weather might change.

After some track drying, time trials started. Dave Thornton ran a 5.701 to take the number one spot.

After all the classes got a run in, Sportsman ran first round, then it really rained. Much worse than Saturday. The track pulled the plug, so 12 racers split the money and received first round loss points.

Big thanks to the race sponsor – C&C Olympic Heating.

The next race is at Bremerton Raceway on June 20 and 21. It is the postponed National Open. So, gate fee is $100 per day and then Association fee of $60. Come run for a Wally and the money.

So far, the rest of the schedule has stayed the same.
