Lime Rock/Lebanon Valley Double Header Saturday
The Mystic Missile modified had the best hauler, no contest.
Drive up hot dogs at the paddock exit.
Bryon Chew. Most drivers got a handle on turning right, a few did not. Bryan Chew did not, qualified last and lasted about 4 laps before pulling in.
Lime Rock Burger
Winner. These cars rode over the curbs like pickup trucks compared to anything else I've seen. Lots of suspension travel, the car was not unsettled at all.
This car has been unsettled.
This car unsettled itself and the fence. I saw it lose it coming out of west bend putting the power down.
Resettling the fence. The backhoe is driving in a new post.
Win shot. These cars suited Lime Rock very well, good racing and incredible sound. When they started both at the beginning of the race and after the red flag it sounded like something was exploding. I approve, though not very many people, certainly below a Friday ALMS crowd.
F2000 using the original uphill. About a 50 second lap.
Next stop, Lebanon Valley for french fries and fried dough. It was very cold but we prepared with long underwear.
"Historic" Modifieds, kind of like all the "historic" towns you have to drive through going to Lime Rock and Lebanon Valley. There were about 10 and they were fairly competitive. Modifieds ended their season last week, we saw the last budget sportsman, sportsman, and pro stock races of the season.
Now to watch Indy Car at Motegi, Japan.
