Road Course Race Results from 10/7/2012

We have posted the road course racing results.  One thing to note is that there are quite a few “magic laps” where a car got counted more than once per lap by going too wide in the infield.  At the next race, we will adjust the breakout lap time to at least 7.5 seconds (it was set to 6 seconds), and we will place a few road dots in the area in the infield to try to keep cars from driving through the timing loop twice per lap.  In these race results from Oct 7, any lap faster than 8 seconds is most likely the result of a car crossing the timing loop twice within the same lap.  We apologize for any confusion this counting issue may have caused.

Oct 7 Track Setup

On Sunday Oct 7th, we could use as much help in the morning as possible.  Normally, Randy goes in on Saturday evening and lays down the carpet.  However, there is a wedding reception in there Saturday, so we can’t get in there until Sunday morning.  Randy will be at the roller rink at 7am.  We would appreciate help carrying carpet, rolling out the carpet, and taping it down.  Thanks.
