Thrilling Finish at The Race Play. We learned finishing 2nd and 3rd can be just as important (and fun) as First. Good Sportsmanship and Fun was experienced by all.
Tolbert and Charlie entered both legends and 1/12 scale pan car divisions. The pan car division rules changed to slow vehicles down in hopes to make the racing more fun and exciting for drivers and spectators. The rule change required all vehicles to stay above a 3 second lap time. Any lap lower than 3 seconds was tossed out. In addition it helped to reduce broken part costs ;o)
Charlie finished the night placing 2nd in one legend and pan car heat while Tolbert placed 1st in a pan car heat and 3rd in legends.
The most exciting race of the night proved to be the pan car A Main with Tolbert, Charlie and Danny. Danny was sporting a new camaro body paint job that look as though it just came out of a car show. The race was very intense. Everyone had a shining moment during the race. Each led a number of laps. Danny had the lead during the last minute of the race. Tolbert pulled up and narrowly passed with about 3 laps to go. During this time Charlie made the attempt to take the lead and tapped the rear fender of Tolbert. This accident open the door for Danny to retake his lead and finish the race up front. Everyone was on the lead lap the entire 4 minute heat. The race was most exciting. We were all laughing and congratulating each other after the race.
