2010 Racer Sideways Regional Championships

"Winnie The Pooh" would have stayed away on this blustery day, but the savvy drivers in NEPA showed up to participate within the 2010 Racer Sideways Regional Championship at S&S Speedway.  Tom G. fueled the morning practice with Dunkin' Donuts, thank you Tom...Tech started at 10:30 am, then the pizza arrived just in time for a lunch break.  Frank and Sam Sr. set hot qualifying laps and the rest of the field was tight.  During the first few heats it was evident that Frank had the setup because his car was on rails blasting 74 laps in the first heat while everyone ran less.  Frank set the high mark lap total with 77 laps in Blue while Sam Sr. set the fastest lap with a 7.4 sec heat.  Frank took first place with a lap total of 299, Tom P. finished second with 295 laps, Chip quietly ran hard and placed third with 291 laps and Tom G. rounded out the podium with a fourth place finish with 286 laps.  Tim and Tom G. seemed to be hanging next to each other banging doorhandles all afternoon...  There was some very competitive racing there...  Tom P's car seemed to start off with a hitch, but he found his groove in the white and yellow lanes driving 76 laps in both lanes, AND he seemed to have the golden sombrero when it came to anarchy occurring in front of him. Thanks to all that showed up for racing!
