S&S Speedway

S&S Speedway would like to first thank everyone for participating.  Of everything that could have been enjoyed on this super, weekend weather day, the addicts showed up to race and qualify for the SCX National Championship race, at Great Traditions.  S&S would also like to thank it's contributers for making this a successful day. Practice started promptly with the customary doughnuts from Tom, tech followed and by then, we broke for J&J Super subs and sides.  After lunch, qualifying took place and it was clear that the brothers, Scott and JJ, came with their homework done.  Scott set the fastest qualifying lap, followed closely by his brother JJ.  Race conditions are always different, however, the brothers did a fine job, with well handling cars all afternoon, with JJ finishing 1st, followed by Scott.  Tommy thought he had car issues, but later discovered in fact, he was "Third Eye Blind"...  Controller issues could have snubbed his day, but gutsy driving and a loaner Third Eye, allowed him to finish up in third.  Dean and Chip very quietly flew under the radar all day and finished within one lap of each other, both having very few deslots. Rich reached his goal.....  of last place unfortunately...  Rich suffered through a myriad of tech gremlins and driving conundrums on the track, which landed him in the pits under green several times...  Rich came in gloating and quoted,"Last place is mine"...  Watch out for those self fulfilling prophesies I suppose...  One of the other teams felt badly and volunteered to tow his car out for the field shot...  Since Tom P. has a champion provisional, JJ, Scott, Dean and Chip qualify for the National Championship.
